Forzest is used for treatment of erectile dysfunctions in men. It does not act without sexual stimulation and is effective in men regardless their age or duration of the problem. Tadalafil, the active substance of this medication, is the same as in Cialis and allows blood vessels to relax and widen letting blood flow to fill cavernous bodies of the penis. This results in erection which subsides after sex.
Dosage and direction
Take Forzest at least one hour before the planned sex intercourse, the medication effects appear withing 30 minutes and continues for up to 36 hours. If you took the drug after a high fat meat like French fries or Hamburger it could take a bit longer for Forzest effects to manifestate. Do not take more than one pill of Forzest a day.
The medication cannot be recommended in patients who were warned against sexual activity due to heart problems. Do not take the medication unless it was prescribed to you by professional health care advisor after thorough examination of your condition. Inform your doctor before to take Forzest if you have abnormal penis, including curved penis and birth defects of the penis, had coronary artery disease, arrhythmia, angina, heart attack or heart failure, hypo- or hypertension, bleeding, stomach ulcers, diabetes, hyperlipidemia (excess of lipids in the blood), sickle-cell anemia, liver or kidney failure in history. Avoid taking Forzest with grapefruit juice, alcohol, tobacco. Smoking combined with treatment by Forzest may lead to a condition called NAION (sudden optic nerve-related vision loss). Forzest should not be used in patients younger 18 years of age.
Forzest is contraindicated in individuals concomitantly treated with nitrates as it may lead to sudden and life threating drops in blood pressure.

The most frequent adverse reactions are headache, flushing of the face and upset stomach. In rare cases temporary changes in color vision, increased sensitiveness to light or blurred vision may occur. Prolonged erections or priapism (painful erections lasting more than 6 hours) is also possible. If your erection lasts longer than 4 hours, seek for immediate medical help as it may permanently damage your penis.

Other side effects besides those listed may appear as individual reaction to the preparation.
