Cold sores refer to the occurring  of blister  near the lips, face and oral cavity (in medical terms, it is known as herpes labialis). It is because of virus infection and the name of the virus is known as Herpes simplex virus (virus are very minute infectious agents, which are responsible for a variety of diseases and are highly harmful to the body).

Tadacip vs Forzest

Jul.22, 2016

men-strong erectionTadacip and Forzest General introduction:

Tadacip and Forzest are the generic drugs for the famous brand drugs Cialis. The main difference lies in that Tadacip is manufactured by Cipla pharmaceuticals and Forzest is manufactured by Sun pharmaceuticals limited. Both the companies have its origin from India and are one of the leaders in the manufacturing of generic drugs. What does the word generic means? First of all don’t worry about the word generic. The word generic only means that the drug is not the initial patented drug and it was manufactured after the patent period of the original branded drug has got over. The generic drugs Tadacip and Forzest undergo a lot of experiments and trials before been approved by the Food and Drug Administration of the United States and are absolutely efficacious as the original branded drugs.

Problem statement and  how do these drugs acts?

Both the drugs are marketed as a solution for erectile dysfunction. The word erectile dysfunction stands for  the condition in which male is not able to lift his penis during sexual intercourse. This might occur because of a variety of conditions. The basic mechanism behind the appearing of this condition is because of the decrease in the filling of the blood in the blood vessels of the penis. It might occur because of the nerve weakness and also because of the blockage of the blood vessels by atherosclerosis. The presence of erectile dysfunction is nowadays classified as one of the predictors of cardiovascular risk. Erectile dysfunction causes a lot of mental distress and affects the personal life significantly. Both of the drug (Tadacip, Forzest) act by causing the inhibition of phosphodiesterase 5. By means of  inhibiting phosphodiesterase 5, there occurs an increase in the concentration of CGMP. (CGMP stands for Cyclic Guanosine Monophosphate and this represent one of the secondary messengers which are biomolecules responsible for the communications inside the cell) This is because phosphodiesterase 5 breaks down CGMP in the absence of these drugs. The increase in the concentration of CGMP causes dilation of blood vessels. Rather less  an initial sexual stimulation is required, for the formation of nitric oxide.
