Generic Name: TADALAFIL (PULMONARY) - ORAL
Pronounced: (ta-DAL-a-fil)

Adcirca Oral Uses

Tadalafil is used to treat high blood pressure in the lungs (pulmonary arterial hypertension). It works by blocking a certain enzyme (phosphodiesterase-PDE5) in the body. This helps to relax the blood vessels in the lungs. Decreasing high blood pressure in the lungs allows the heart and lungs to work better and improves your ability to exercise.

How To Use Adcirca Oral

Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start taking tadalafil and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

To treat high blood pressure in the lungs, take this medication by mouth with or without food, usually once daily or as directed by your doctor.

Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.

Avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while using this medication unless your doctor instructs you otherwise. Grapefruit can increase the amount of this medication in your bloodstream. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.

Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
