Tadalafil Troches

Tadalafil is a potent medication for treating erectile dysfunction with a long duration of effectiveness. It is in the same class of drugs as sildenafil and works by increasing blood flow to penile tissues.

our tadalafil troches are commonly used to treat a variety of conditions, most commonly erectile disfunction, benign prostatic hyperplasia, and peripheral arterial hypertension.  We are able to customize this medication by compounding it pursuant to healthcare providers’ individaulized, patient-specific requirements.

Unlike sildenafil it does not need to be taken immediately before sexual activity but can be taken at any time or on a daily basis at lower dosages. A single dose of tadalafil can be effective for up to 36 hours and will only promote an erection in the presence of sexual stimulation.  Because of its long duration, tadalafil has sometimes been referred to as “the Weekend Pill.”

What is the Dosage for Tadalafil Troches?

Tadalafil allows for sexual activity any time without needing to plan around taking a pill. For daily use, a 2.5mg or 5mg troche is prescribed and should be taken regularly for at a least a week before full effects can be expected. Studies have shown that when used daily it can have a cumulative effect, leading to better results in the long term compared to using it only as needed. For use as-needed, tadalafil is prescribed at higher dosages of 5mg, 10mg, or 20mg. Tadalafil can take 30 minutes to an hour to start working when only used as-needed.

How Does Tadalafil Work?

Tadalafil troches work by inhibiting the enzyme PDE5 to increase blood flow to the penis. Inhibiting PDE5 assists in relaxation of the vascular smooth muscle that controls blood flow. When the vascular smooth muscles are relaxed, blood flow is increased to the penis, which helps maintain an erection. Without sexual stimulation the medication will not work, which is why it can be taken on a daily basis. This gives more choice about when to initiate sexual activity than sildenafil – the active ingredient in Viagra. Sublingual administration leads to a faster onset and less risk of gastrointestinal side effects.

Other Uses for Tadalafil

Besides its use in treating erectile dysfunction, tadalafil has been used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension and to improve exercise ability in these patients. It has also been FDA-approved and marketed under the brand name Cialis for treating both erectile dysfunction and benign prostatic hyperplasis (BPH) together. BPH is a condition that results from an enlarged prostate gland that can cause problems with bladder control.

Tadalafil Troches – Compounded Treatment Option for Erectile Dysfunction

Tadalafil, the generic for Cialis®, is indicated for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED), but with a longer duration of effectiveness as compared to its competitors. It is in the same class of drugs (PDE5 inhibitor) as sildenafil, the generic for Viagra® and works by increasing blood flow to penile tissues.

Tadalafil vs. Sildenafil – What is the difference?

The main difference between the two medications is how long the drugs work in the body. Both medications begin to work within about 30 – 60 minutes.

A single dose of tadalafil can be effective for up to 36 hours and will only promote an erection in the presence of sexual stimulation.  Sildenafil is typically effective for 4-6 hours.  This difference in time has led to tadalafil being known as the “the weekender”.

What is a Tadalafil Troche?

Tadalafil is available in a tablet form, but we compound these medications as a troche/lozenge.

We do this for two reasons:

1. faster absorption and

2. Lower cost to you.

Troches are a unique dosage form that have been used for many years for drug delivery.

Troches are small lozenges that dissolve between the cheek and gum or under the tongue (sublingual) over a period of about 15-30 minutes.

The medication is then directly absorbed through the mucus membranes of the mouth and are effective because the lining of the mouth is thin and rich in blood supply.

This allows the medicine to bypass the digestive system.  Food may interfere with the absorption and cause the medicine to not work as well.

What is a Dissolvable Troche?

A troche is the physical form of medicine that is designed to dissolve under the tongue. This is called sublingual delivery. Troches are not swallowed.

Are Troches Better than Pills or Capsules?

One form is not better than the other. The choice may be a matter of preference or necessity.

Here’s how troches are different from pills.

  • Troches are not swallowed. They are absorbed by mucous membranes beneath the tongue.
  • Troches are not weakened by digestive enzymes because they bypass the gastrointestinal tract (GI).
  • Troches may be less likely to cause GI upset.
  • Troches may work faster than pills or capsules due to their direct absorption.

How Do Tadalafil and Cialis Work?

Tadalafil blocks the actions of the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5. Inhibiting PDE5 causes smooth muscle in the penis to relax. When the muscles relax, pressure on the blood vessels is released which enables increased blood flow to the penis. This results in a firmer and longer-lasting erection.

How Long Does Tadalafil Last?

The effects of tadalafil can last 18-36 hours, which means that a man may be able to obtain an erection several times during that time span.
