Therapeutic Indications Of Herox 20 Mg Tablets
Tadalafil is used to treat:
Erectile dysfunction in adult men: This is when a man cannot get, or keep a hard, erect penis suitable for sexual activity. It is important to note that Tadalafil does not work if there is no sexual stimulation.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension in adults: It works by helping the blood vessels around your lungs relax, improving the flow of blood into your lungs. The result of this is an improved ability to do physical activity.
