Tadalafil Sandoz is used to treat erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, in men. This is when a man cannot get, or maintain, a hard-erect penis suitable for sexual activity. The active ingredient in Tadalafil Sandoz tablets, tadalafil, belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors. Following sexual stimulation, Tadalafil Sandoz works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax, allowing the flow of blood into your penis. The result of this is improved erectile function. Tadalafil Sandoz will only treat erectile dysfunction if you are sexually aroused. You and your partner will need to engage in foreplay, just as you would if you were not taking a medicine for erectile dysfunction. Tadalafil does not give you a 36-hour erection - it simply allows you to achieve an erection with stimulation within this time period.
Tadalafil Sandoz is also used to treat urinary symptoms associated with a common condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia. This is when the prostate gland gets bigger with age. Symptoms include difficulty in starting to pass urine, a feeling of not completely emptying the bladder and a more frequent need to pass urine even at night. Tadalafil Sandoz improves blood flow to, and relaxes the muscles of, the prostate and bladder which may reduce symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Tadalafil Sandoz is not intended for use by women or by children under the age of 18 years.

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you notice any of the following and they worry you. Common side effects include:
- Back pain
- Flushed skin
- Nasal congestion
- Muscle pain
By far the most common side effect of Tadalafil is a mild to moderate headache. It works through helping blood vessels to dilate, thus increasing blood flow, and that rapid change in blood flow extends to the brain — an event that can lead to a headache. Even this, the most common side effect, is rarer than a 1-in-5 occurrence.
After that, as noted, the most common side effects include back pain, flushed skin, heartburn, indigestion, nasal congestion, and muscle pain. You have maybe a 1-in-20 chance of seeing one of these side effects, with the risk increasing with the strength of the Tadalafil dosage. Any of these symptoms should fully pass within 48 hours of taking Tadalafil, so if they linger past that or are particularly bad, consult a doctor.
Serious side effects can include serious sensory problems, An erection that won’t subside, pain in the heart and/or chest. For symptoms of this rarity, you’re looking at something between 1-in-100 and 1-in-1000, meaning that most healthy men are unlikely to experience any of these issues.
You should not take Tadalafil Sandoz together with any other treatments for erectile dysfunction. You should not take more than 1 Tadalafil tablet per day.
If while taking Tadalafil tablets you have an erection which lasts for over 4 hours, then you must consult a doctor immediately. If you delay receiving treatment for a prolonged erection (priapism) for over six hours, this could cause damage to the erectile tissue in the penis and irreversible ED.
If when taking Tadalafil tablets you experience a partial decrease or loss of vision in one or both eyes, you must cease taking the medication and consult your doctor immediately.
Tell your doctor if you have or have had any of the following medical conditions:
- liver or kidney problems
- heart problems or if you have had a heart attack
- blood vessel problems
- sickle cell anaemia (an abnormality of red blood cells)
- multiple myeloma (cancer of the bone marrow)
- leukaemia (cancer of the blood cells)
- any deformation of the penis (such as angulation, cavernosal fibrosis or Peyronie's disease)
- loss of vision in one or both eyes
