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.

Quitting smoking is tough and hard process. The nicotine that is already circulating in your system increases the dopamine substance in your brain. Dopamine stimulates your brain to feel pleasure, reduce anxiety and tension. Persons who are smoking half their life will certainly look forward to this effect. That is why quitting smoking is a tough fight, and the battle is within your own self.

If you want to quit smoking but finds it hard to stick to your goal, you might need the aid of Champix…an effective drug to curb your cravings for cigarette smoking.

Chantix had been circulating in the market after gaining the approval of US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in early 2006. The FDA review for a product usually takes about 10 month’s duration, with Chantix, the product review takes only 6 months before it was approved for circulation as a smoking cessation pill.

When Chantix was approved for circulation in the European Union, it has received a new brand name called “Champix”. If you browse either any of these brand names using the internet search engine, do not be confused, Chantix and Champix are identical drugs containing the generic formulation called “varenicline”.

Champix is a prescription-only medication manufactured and patented by Pfizer. It is packed in 1 mg. and 0.5 mg. tablets. Champix 0.5 mg. tablet are film-coated, white, modified capsular shaped table, with “Pfizer” marking on one side and “CHX 0.5” on the other. Champix 1 mg looks almost the same as the 0.5 mg. tablet; it only differs on the colour because Champix 1 mg is in light blue colour.

Champix ingredient – Varenicline

Champix is the brand name of the generic formulation called “verenicline”. This substance is a strong and potent ingredient in curbing the cravings of cigarette smoking by stimulating the brain’s nicotine receptors. As mentioned, nicotine increases the brain’s dopamine substance, responsible in feeling of pleasure while reducing anxiety and tension. Champix works by blocking this nicotine substance in reaching the brain’s nicotine receptors, thereby decreasing dopamine.

Based on clinical study, success of Champix works four (4) times more than other sugar pills. As compared to brands containing bupropion ingredients, Champix has 60 percentage success rates than the bupropion formulation.

Champix common side effects

Champix is a prescription-only medication intended to be taken at lower dosage to acclimate the body as to its effect. Lower dose is intended for one (1) week before quitting date and gradually increases after every 3 to 4 days. Adherence to doctor’s guidance and instruction is strictly recommended to avoid or at least limit the following most common side effects on the use of this medication:

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting (when medication is taken with food)

  • Change in sleeping pattern

  • Headaches

  • Drowsiness

  • Increased hunger

  • Mood swings

Conclusion about quit smoking with Champix
