Formula Information

A small arrow pointing down

This formulation combines Apomorphine HCl, Phentolamine Mesylate, and Tadalafil in a solid dosage form, specifically an oral capsule. The capsule is composed of two gelatin or vegetarian shells that enclose the medication. This design allows for convenient and easy swallowing, and provides a precise dosage of the active ingredients.

Apomorphine HCl is a non-selective dopamine agonist that is used for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. It works by stimulating dopamine receptors in the brain, which helps to improve motor function. However, in this formulation, it is used for its pro-erectile properties. It stimulates the hypothalamic pathways, which leads to an erection.

Phentolamine Mesylate is an alpha-adrenergic blocker. It is typically used to manage hypertension, but in this formulation, it is used for its ability to promote blood flow to the penis, thereby aiding in the achievement and maintenance of an erection.

Tadalafil is a phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) inhibitor. It is commonly used to treat erectile dysfunction and benign prostatic hyperplasia. It works by relaxing the muscles in the blood vessels, increasing blood flow to certain areas of the body. In this formulation, it aids in the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

This combination of Apomorphine HCl, Phentolamine Mesylate, and Tadalafil in an oral capsule form provides a comprehensive approach to the treatment of erectile dysfunction. It targets different pathways to promote and maintain an erection, making it a potent and effective treatment option.

As with any medication, it is important to use this formulation under the guidance of a healthcare provider. Side effects may include dizziness, flushing, headache, and indigestion. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects, contact your healthcare provider immediately.

Drug Interactions

A small arrow pointing down

This formulation combines Apomorphine HCl, Phentolamine Mesylate, and Tadalafil in a solid dosage form. These active ingredients work together to treat conditions such as erectile dysfunction and Parkinson's disease. Apomorphine HCl is a dopamine agonist that helps to improve motor function in patients with Parkinson's disease. Phentolamine Mesylate is an alpha-adrenergic blocker that helps to relax and widen blood vessels, improving blood flow. Tadalafil is a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor that also helps to increase blood flow, particularly to the penis, aiding in the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

While this formulation can be highly effective, it's important to be aware of potential drug interactions. Apomorphine HCl can interact with certain antiemetics, such as ondansetron, increasing the risk of severe hypotension and loss of consciousness. It can also interact with antihypertensive drugs, leading to an increased risk of hypotension. Alcohol and other CNS depressants can enhance the sedative effects of Apomorphine HCl.

Phentolamine Mesylate can interact with beta-blockers, leading to an increased risk of hypotension and tachycardia. It can also interact with erectile dysfunction drugs, such as sildenafil, vardenafil, and avanafil, leading to an increased risk of priapism (prolonged and painful erection).

Tadalafil can interact with nitrates, leading to a significant drop in blood pressure. It can also interact with alpha-blockers, increasing the risk of hypotension. Other PDE5 inhibitors and protease inhibitors can increase the plasma concentration of Tadalafil, leading to an increased risk of side effects.

It's crucial for patients to inform their healthcare provider of all medications they are currently taking, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and herbal supplements. This will help to minimize the risk of drug interactions. Patients should also avoid consuming alcohol while taking this medication, as it can enhance certain side effects.

If you have any questions about this formulation or its potential interactions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We're here to help ensure that your medication is safe and effective for you.

How Does it Work

A small arrow pointing down

The Apomorphine HCl 1 mg/Phentolamine Mesylate 2 mg/Tadalafil 10 mg Oral Capsules are a combination medication designed to treat erectile dysfunction. Each of the three active ingredients plays a unique role in addressing this condition.

Apomorphine HCl is a dopamine agonist that works by activating dopamine receptors in the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays a crucial role in the regulation of sexual behavior. By stimulating these receptors, Apomorphine HCl helps to enhance the signals that trigger an erection.

Phentolamine Mesylate is an alpha-adrenergic blocker. It works by relaxing the smooth muscles in the blood vessels of the penis, which allows for increased blood flow. This increased blood flow is essential for achieving and maintaining an erection.

Tadalafil is a type of medication known as a phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) inhibitor. It works by blocking the enzyme PDE5, which is responsible for the breakdown of a substance called cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) in the smooth muscle cells lining the blood vessels supplying the penis. By inhibiting PDE5, Tadalafil allows cGMP to accumulate. The increased cGMP relaxes the smooth muscles, which results in an expanded blood flow to the penis and an erection upon sexual stimulation.

The combination of these three active ingredients in one capsule allows for a multi-faceted approach to treating erectile dysfunction. The capsule form ensures a precise dosage of each ingredient and provides a convenient method of administration. The solid dosage form, composed of two gelatin or vegetarian shells, encloses the medication, allowing for easy swallowing.

It's important to note that this medication does not provide an instant erection. Sexual stimulation is still necessary to achieve an erection after taking the capsule. The medication is designed to improve the body's natural response to sexual stimulation.

Other Uses

A small arrow pointing down

The combination formulation of Apomorphine HCl, Phentolamine Mesylate, and Tadalafil in an oral capsule format is primarily used for the management of Erectile Dysfunction (ED). However, some off-label uses of these medications include treating other conditions.

Apomorphine HCl is a non-selective dopamine agonist typically used in treating Parkinson's Disease symptoms, as it helps regulate movement. As a result, it finds an off-label use in treating other motor-related disorders where dopamine regulation is an issue.

Phentolamine Mesylate is an alpha-adrenergic blocker that is most frequently used to control blood pressure during surgical removal of a pheochromocytoma. In some cases, it has been used to diagnose certain conditions such as feochromocytomas and even in the control of a hypertensive crisis.

Tadalafil is a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor predominantly used to treat erectile dysfunction and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Beyond these uses, Tadalafil may find application in the management of pulmonary arterial hypertension, enhancing exercise capacity in both men and women afflicted with this condition.

Though these potential uses exist, it is important for prescribers and patients to note that these are off-label uses and may not have undergone thorough testing for these indications. Prior to starting treatment with these medications, a detailed discussion regarding the intended benefits and possible risks should be held. Additionally, any changes to treatment regimens should be closely monitored by the prescribing physician to ensure efficacy and safety of the therapy regimen.
