Tadalafil like other erectile products is a phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitor.During the process of sexual stimulation Tadalafil inhibits the activity of Phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5). With normal sexual stimulation there is a release of nitric oxide from the nerve endings and endothelial cell in the corpus cavernosum which leads to increased levels of cGMP in the corpus cavernosum and hence a better erections. NextNitric oxide is believed to convert the guanylate enzyme to cyclic guanosine monophosphate in the smooth muscles of corpus cavernosum. Without sexual stimulation and no activation of the NO/cGMP system, tadalafil should not cause an erection.
