I'm 62 years old and I have some erectile problems. I couldn't share my problems with anyone, even with my physician. Once, a friend of mine told me about Cialis. I tried to order a pack of cialis 60 x 40 mg. In a week the anticipated product came from overseas, I was so excited, like a child unpacking Christmas presents! Still being worried enough I summoned all my willpower and took a pill. I must admit, the sex was peerless! I speak on the behalf of my wife too, Cialis made us happy! This product reminded me how to enjoy a life to the full extent!

Side Effects of Cialis

Long gone are the times when erectile dysfunction was something that a man just couldn’t cure. These days there are quite a few different ways to get rid of this unpleasant disorder – starting from powerful and very easy-to-use medications and going all the way to surgery. Today we will be talking about ED meds – Cialis, in particular. Even though it gives men a very simple way to enjoy sex again, there are some downsides to using it too. Unfortunately, our pharmaceutical industry is not yet advanced enough to make Cialis (or any other medication, in fact) absolutely harmless for those who use it. In this article we will give a brief overview of the most widespread side effects of Cialis and give you some advice on how to avoid them.

How does Cialis work and what are its side effects caused by?

If you want to understand the side effects of Cialis and find a good way to avoid them, you need to know how Cialis works in first place. The active ingredient in this medication, Tadalafil Citrate, is a PDE5 inhibitor, which means that it is used to lessen the effect of PDE5 (cGMP-specific phosphodiesterase type 5) – the enzyme that causes erectile dysfunction and several other diseases in men.

Tadalafil Citrate, as well as similar substances used in other ED meds like Viagra, Levitra, etc., works by relaxing the smooth muscles lining the blood vessels inside your body. It helps blood to flow more freely and, as more blood enters your penis, you regain the ability to respond to sexual stimulation by getting a heathy hard and long-lasting erection.

Unfortunately, at the same time, the relaxation of smooth muscle in blood vessels leads to a noticeable drop in blood pressure, which is the main cause of most side effects of Cialis. Additionally, this medication appears to be pretty rough on the stomach, often causing dyspepsia, heartburn and other digestion disorders.

It should be noted, however, that most doctors and scientists researching the effects of Cialis and other similar medications claim that its adverse effects appear to be dose related. In other words, side effects are most frequently observed in men who overdose on ED meds. If you stick to your doctor’s recommendations or, at least, the information on the package insert you will find in every bottle or pack of Cialis, you should be perfectly fine.

What are the most common side effects of Cialis?

In general, Cialis appears to be a much safer alternative to other ED medications as it has fewer side effects – and even those that might become noticeable are almost always milder compared to the side effects caused by other pills. Of course, every individual is unique and there are men who claim they tolerate Viagra and Levitra much better than Cialis but still, according to our data and personal experience, starting your anti-ED experiments with Cialis always is a good idea.

So, on to those side effects… Around 10-15% men taking 36-hour Cialis and between 5% and 6% of those taking the version of the medication intended for daily use report suffering from headache and indigestion. Taking that relatively low percentage and the fact that in most cases these side effects are extremely mild into account, we can conclude that it’s only in extremely rare cases that Cialis produces side effects serious enough for you to want to refrain from sexual activity.

In addition to that, Cialis is also known to cause muscle and back pains in some men (3-6% and 2-3% in 36-hour Cialis and Cialis for daily use respectively). While headache and indigestion usually take as short as 2 hours to heal, the pains can persist for up to two days after you take the pill, which makes this side effect much more unpleasant than the ones mentioned above. Luckily, most Cialis users still describe the pains caused by the drug as mild, moderate or tolerable.

In some rare cases Cialis can also cause dizziness and nasal congestion (stuffy or runny nose). These adverse effects are very mild and go away quickly, so we probably shouldn’t spend too much time talking about them.

All in all, as you can see, there isn’t much to be afraid of. Even if you belong with the least lucky 2-3%, the worst you can experience is some muscle pain similar to what you feel after a good workout. And what about the headache and dyspepsia? Most men agree that this is a pretty low price to pay in exchange for the ability to make love like you are twenty again.

What are less common side effects of Cialis?

There are also some more serious side effects of Cialis, which have been reported only a few times throughout the extensive history of this medication. A few men suffered from sudden loss of vision or hearing – partial or complete. Later, they recovered the ability to see and hear but, needless to say, they were staying away from Cialis from that moment on. Additionally, there have been a few cases of priapism presumably caused by Cialis. Priapism is a rare health condition characterized by extremely long-lasting (4 hours or more) or painful erections that just wouldn’t go away. This condition always calls for emergency medical attention as it may lead to tissue necrosis and permanent inability to obtain an erection in future.

It’s also believed that Cialis can cause heart, liver and kidney problems, which is why this medication is hardly ever prescribed to patients with recent history of heart attack or stroke, or severe health disorders affecting their liver or kidneys. It’s also not recommended for use in patients with retinitis pigmentosa, penis deformations (including Peyronie’s disease) and blood cell problems, such as sickle cell anemia, leukemia or myeloma.

As we have already mentioned above, Cialis is a medication that can be fairly difficult for your stomach to digest, which is why people suffering from stomach ulcers or bleeding problems are almost never allowed to use Cialis until their condition is completely healed.

Please, treat all of the above with maximum responsibility. Of course, these serious side effects of Cialis occur very rarely and are mostly caused by a severe overdose or by consumption in people who are not supposed to be taking this medication. Nevertheless, we recommend that you consult your healthcare provider prior to beginning the treatment of ED with Cialis, no matter what strength/type of the pill you are planning to go for.

How does Cialis interact with other medications and substances?

It’s worth noting that there are a few medications and substances that can impair the effect of Cialis or even cause serious health problems when used together with this pill. Please, take the time to read this part of the article carefully as it contains very important information that every Cialis user should be aware of.

is lucky enough not to experience any of those serious adverse effects, they will most definitely suffer from extreme dizziness, nausea, both caused by an extreme drop of blood pressure and often accompanied by loss of consciousness.

The list of other meds that are almost never taken along with Cialis due to high possibility of adverse effects includes the following:

- other ED medications, such as Viagra, Levitra, etc.;

- alpha-blockers used in the treatment of prostate problems;

- medications used to treat blood pressure problems;

- HIV medications;

- some orally administered antifungal medications;

- certain antibiotics like erythromycin and its derivatives.

Even though most foods do not affect the overall performance of Cialis or increase the period of time required for it to start working, there is at least one product that should be avoided by people taking Cialis. We’re talking about grapefruit here. Strangely, this fruit makes Tadalafil get sucked up into the blood flow much faster, which may result in an overdose, even when you’re just taking your regular dose of Cialis. Therefore, grapefruit and grapefruit juice should better be avoided by men on Cialis.

You’re also recommended to avoid drinking excessive amounts of alcohol when taking Cialis. The official site of the manufacturer claims that you should be fine if you pop a pill of Cialis after taking five shots of hard liquor or drinking five glasses of wine. Most doctors agree that Cialis will still work well even if you drink more than that – but don’t exceed the limit of two drinks per hour during the night.

What should I do if I notice the symptoms of those side effects after taking Cialis?

First of all, you shouldn’t be afraid as your chances of suffering from side effects of Cialis are not that high anyway. Nevertheless, you should be ready for headache, muscle pains, digestion problems, stuffy or runny nose and/or maybe even facial flushing – these side effects are fairly common, don’t put your health or life at risk and usually disappear within a few hours. However, if any of these seem to be very persistent or annoying, don’t hesitate to contact your doctor about it – you will probably be advised to switch to another ED medication or given something to counter the side effects of Cialis effectively and without harm

However, if you feel any serious symptoms like priapism, chest pain, tingling or numbness in the chest or limbs after taking Cialis, sudden loss of vision or hearing or extreme dizziness and nausea, seek emergency medical assistance immediately.

As you can see, Cialis is definitely not the most dangerous ED pills out there – the list of its possible side effects is relatively short and far not as menacing as those of many conventional meds. Basically, all you have to do prior to taking Cialis is make sure that you don’t have any diseases that could be a contraindication to using Cialis as well as that you are not taking any meds that don’t go well with Tadalafil. Plus, avoid grapefruit and grapefruit juice and don’t get too drunk. If you follow these very simple rules, your experience with Cialis is guaranteed to be flawless!
