Tadalafil Medication Information for Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH) is a disease in which the blood pressure of the blood vessels feeding the lungs is too high. Tadalafil for pulmonary hypertension relaxes the muscle cells in the walls of the blood vessels leading to your lungs, allowing your blood vessels to dilate. This reduces the pressure in the blood vessels and makes the blood flow in the blood vessels easier. As a result, your lung function and ability to exercise will improve.

Tadalafil, also known as Cialis, is also used to treat erectile dysfunction or enlarged prostate; For more information on tadalafil for erectile dysfunction or prostate enlargement, see the page for those medications.
