What is Cialis Jelly?
Cialis Jelly is a form of generic tadalafil used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). It is sold under the brand name Adcirca. Cialis Jelly is a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor. PDE5 is an enzyme that regulates blood flow in the penis. When PDE5 is blocked, more blood is allowed to enter the penis, which leads to an erection. Cialis Jelly is used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). Cialis Jelly is not for use in women or children.
