For patients with impotence and erectile dysfunction (ED), fast-acting and effective medical options have been dominated by brand-names including competitors Viagra® (also known as the drug sildenafil) and Cialis® (tadalafil). But as the landscape shifts, and the prevalence of ED increases (in general, but also among younger patients under the age of 40), our pharmacy has seen the desire for compounded generics and customized solutions rise.
NEW: Customized Compound Tadalafil for Erectile Dysfunction and Impotence
Tadalafil is in the same drug class as sildenafil (Viagra) and boasts the same mechanism of action: it increases blood flow to the penis so that a strong erection can be achieved and maintained. Since the patent for Cialis expired early this year, the opportunity to compound tadalafil and customize it to enhance and improve the patient experience has taken off.
The Unique Benefits of Compound Tadalafil at VLS Pharmacy
- We can compound tadalafil with oxytocin (also known as the “love hormone”) which is touted as an orgasm intensifier.
- We formulate tadalafil as a troche (which looks similar to a tic tac) that dissolves quickly under the tongue. This is a faster delivery system than a tablet or capsule which means that patients experience a speedy drug onset.
- Flavor Experience
- Tadalafil is known for having a bitter taste, and that’s why we offer flavored masking agents. Our most popular flavors are crema de minte and marshmallow but other options are available (just ask!).
When Tadalafil Isn’t Right For Your Patient
While most patients will see immediate results with tadalafil, everyone has unique needs. For patients looking for a robust solution we can compound advanced penile injections; for those facing andropause, we offer bioidentical hormones replacement therapy.
