Tadalafil (INN) is a PDE5 inhibitor marketed in pill form for treating erectile dysfunction (ED) under the name Cialis /siˈælɪs/ see-AL-iss, and under the name Adcirca /ædˈsɜːrkə/ ad-SUR-kə for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension. In October 2011 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Cialis for treating the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) as well as a combination of BPH and erectile dysfunction when the conditions coincide. It initially was developed by the biotechnology company ICOS, and then again developed and marketed worldwide by Lilly ICOS, LLC, the joint venture of ICOS Corporation and Eli Lilly and Company. Cialis tablets, in 2.5 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg, and 20 mg doses, are yellow, film-coated, and almond-shaped. The approved dose for pulmonary arterial hypertension is 40 mg (two 20 mg tablets) once daily. Tadalafil is also manufactured and sold under the name of Tadacip by the Indian pharmaceutical company Cipla in doses of 10 mg and 20 mg. On November 21, 2003 the FDA approved tadalafil (as Cialis) for sale in the United States as the third ED prescription drug pill (after sildenafil citrate (Viagra) and vardenafil (Levitra)). Like sildenafil and vardenafil, tadalafil is recommended as an 'as needed' medication. Cialis is also offered as a once-daily medication. Tadalafil was approved in May 2009 in the United States for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension and is under regulatory review in other regions for this condition. In late November 2008, Eli Lilly sold the exclusive rights to commercialize tadalafil for pulmonary arterial hypertension in the United States to United Therapeutics for an upfront payment of $150 million. Yes, I am the Allison DuBois that the TV show ‘Medium’ was based upon.
My story started well before the show.
I launched this website back in 2003 with my husband, Joe, as the webmaster. My original welcome remark says it all.
“Hi my name is Allison DuBois, welcome to my website. I belong to a new generation of mediums who are out to break old stereotypes that put a negative spin on people with mediumship abilities. I call things like I see them and I am not afraid to push the boundaries of my abilities. I pride myself on accuracy and bringing closure to people who have lost loved ones.
My website is designed to help bring clarity to people in their sometimes complicated lives. Also, I provide information for people who have noticed their own abilities and have questions that need to be answered.”
Through the years I have kept the same goals. I have added a newsletter and video blogs and a shopping cart, but in the end it is still about helping people.
The TV show was a great success too! With 130 episodes and 7 seasons. It is showing on every continent around the world.
It was quite an experience to see my life played out on TV. Now it is a new experience to watch the re-runs, 11 years later.
Please take some time, watch the videos and read the FAQs. I am constantly adding content to help achieve the goal of helping people.
