Cialis (tadalafil) for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: I had some problems to keep an erection so I took a 20 mg pill. That was a week ago and I feel Cialis still works facilitating erections. No secondary effects on me like I had with Levitra. This pill is awesome.

Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I recently started having problems in bedroom.I was diagnosed with low testosterone and decreased blood flow to penis. I was prescribed for daily use of 5 mg of Cialis for 30 days. Took it for first time and I got to say I was VERY impressed with the results. Instantly got an erection upon intercourse and lasted for 45 minutes. Only thing though felt kind of funny when I first took it but felt better after 30 minutes. Check with your doctor first if you are on any other medicines. I currently take blood pressure medication but it does not interact with it. I highly recommend this medicine.
Cialis (tadalafil) for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: I have tried three other medications for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, which were either ineffective or I didn't like the side effects. My doctor asked my insurance company to cover Cialis daily use for my BPH. To my surprise, it was approved. It has greatly decreased my frequent urination and I usually only get up once, at night, and sometimes not at all. The side effects have been really good. Although, my sexual funtioning, for someone my age (62), was considered normal, it was really problematic for me. My wife and I had sex 1-3 times per week. Since starting Cialis, about 9 months ago, it is pretty much a daily event. I must say, this has been pleasing.

Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: 30 with great testosterone levels but recently been having issues in the bedroom with new girlfriend. Talked to doctor because I just couldn't understand it. Had some anxiety after a stomach illness and just thought it may have trickled into my mind and how I have sex. In any event the doctor gave me Cialis, took 10mg last night. I literally can't stop getting erections. Now I'm walking around trying to walk off an erection. This stuff works! I've been flying at half staff a lot too. No side effects either, I took one 5mg pill and about 30 mins later took another 5mg pill. I'd say it's worth the shot for anyone needing to boost confidence down there.

Review by Broadhead00 (taken for less than 1 month):
Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I'm 48 and have fibromyalgia, been taking amitriptyline for 10 yrs to manage the pain. Since being on the medication, started losing the normal morning erections, my Dr believed this was a side effect of the medication. As I got into my 40's it started to take longer to achieve an erection and slowly became where it would not last. It finally got to a point where I could not maintain an erection during intercourse. Then as of 4 months ago I could not even have sex, could not reach ejaculation. So I talked with my Dr. and ran the usual blood work which came back fine. I had a testosterone level of 950, normal blood pressure and cholesterol, etc. I took 5mg tablet and instantly I was hard and lasted for close to 2 hrs. Problem solved.

Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I am a pretty fit 60 year old who had been experiencing some Benign Prostate Hyperplasia symptoms and had increasingly noticed a deterioration of sexual performance. I was prescribed 5 mg daily Cialis. It was helping somewhat with the BPH though I decided that the cost to benefit ratio may be far better with another medication.
The sexual performance benefit was another matter entirely and I couldn't be more pleased. The daily 5mg made me feel 30 years younger, the quality of the sex has increased dramatically as I am able to last much longer and ejaculate much better as well. My wife is both shocked and pleased. I am now splitting them in half and have noticed virtually no lessening of its benefit.

tadalafil for Erectile Dysfunction: I am soon to be 79 and unable to get an erection for over 4 years. I have had Parkinson't disease for 16 years and on several meds. My wife was wonderful in helping me find the best time to take Cialis, starting with 10mg dose. Helped some but had to go to 20mg dose. Over the top results in about 4-5 hours. Lasted over an hour and was able to ejaculate normally! My wife is 67 and an eager partner which makes all the difference in the world! I am alive again!
Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: 55 years old, started having trouble now and then. My doctor prescribed 20mg Cialis, I had done no research on dosage and didn't realize it comes in smaller dosage. I get no side effects at all. The only thing is I wake up the next morning with a very stiff erection that doesn't go away until 15-30 mins after I pee.

Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I am diabetic also long time smoker who quit 5 years ago. Sex hasnt been right for a while. Got a prescription for 20mg tabs. Read about the side effects and decided to try cutting the pill in thirds. Had sex three hours later. Amazing! Like being 20 again. Tiny headache for an hour the next day. Seems to be working fine on the third day.

tadalafil for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: I have been taking various Benign Prostate Hyperplasia medicines, Cardura is the most recent and is the only one that does not cause as severe retro-ejaculation. My urologist put me on daily Cialis and my ejaculations have greatly improved and my frequency of urination at night also has improved. Only problem is my insurance will only prescribe 24 capsules which they consider a 90 day supply. I can get Viagra 10 mg which 24 capsules will last several months.
Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Got a 30 day sample from my urologist. For me, this medicine is wonderful. Am taking lisinopril and lovastatin. Was concerned if the medicine helped after the first dose. And am happy to say that it did. It worked well after about one hour. But my most intense erection was about after 6 hours. No side effects to speak of unless you can say my face seemed flush afterwards. Just assumed it was working. Do not have a perpetual erection but can feel that I am on the verge of one for a while. Couldn't be happier.

Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Started on the 10mg as needed about 3 years ago and the results are impressive. At 63, it was getting more and more difficult to become and stay erect and wasn't lasting. The 20mg had me walking around with a full erection without any stimulation like being a teenager, but had headaches and stomach upset. Less side effects with 10mg and almost none when using them cut in half. The 5mg are still plenty effective for at least a day and a half. Cutting the 10mg in half gets the price down, but still pretty expensive. However, I wouldn't want to be without it now.

Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Wonder and reconcile pill, being using it for 2 years I am extremely satisfied. Advised it to my divorced friend to see his doctor, he started using the pills (10 mg) with sporadic women who knew his wife. Those women start spreading news about his sex performance. Then the ex-wife decided to reconcile and live with the ex-husband. Wonderful and life restoration pills. Guys, contact your doctor, life is so beautiful with having satisfied sex.

Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I am in my mid 30's and take 5mg daily. I start a day before I know I will have intercourse so I have more in my system. It works alright. I am not fully erect on the spot. It does take stimulation. I definitively get the facial flushing side effect. Does not bother me much. One thing I did notice is I am constantly at a semi erect state. So I know it is working because more blood is going to that area. Its always nice knowing you will get erect and not having to worry. It is good stuff.

Review by Ironman Terry (taken for less than 1 month):
Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I'm a 2 time finisher of the Ironman. With my fitness level, one would think I'd be able to perform as desired. Not so. I hesitated using any erectile dysfunction medications because 12 years ago I was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. The atrial fibrillation was corrected with surgery, but I still was hesitant to use performance enhancing pills.
After 2 months of not being able to penetrate I finally decided to try Cialis on Christmas Eve.
My wife and I are empty nesters. So we opened our presents on that night. I haven't been this happy in weeks. 4 times in 7 days. WOW!

Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Here's one for the younger generation out there. 25 years old and healthy. My inability to perform was always present in my life. Part of it was anxiety no doubt, especially with a new girlfriend who wanted sex on a regular basis. Getting an erection was difficult, and maintaining it was even more challenging. I gathered up enough courage to talk to my doctor about it. He have me Cialis samples. AMAZING!! Rock hard so quickly, maintaining no problem, lasts over 2 days! What a miracle, no more issues in the bedroom, takes a load off my mind and the best sex I've ever had. I give it a 9 instead of 10 because it is expensive, insurance only covers 6 pills a month.

Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I'm 6 foot 190lbs in relatively good shape. Smoke, high blood pressure don't drink alcohol. I have a very attractive new girlfriend 24. I suffered some performance anxiety the first 3 times. I couldn't get or keep it up. Went to Doctor, Testosterone levels normal, and he gave me a script for daily Cialis. After 3 days prep Anxiety Gone. Rock hard. Almost zero stimulation required. Just go and get some. Don't be embarrassed to ask. Its all worth it in the end. Trust me. Best idea ever.

tadalafil for Erectile Dysfunction: I am 32 and had issues with maintaining erections for some time due to anxiety from work and previous relationships. I met a beautiful woman and she has put up with it for nearly a year, its hard though because I knew I was letting her down which made it worse. I had 1 20mg Cialis tablet and 1 hour later, we had the best sex of our lives. It lasted for nearly 3 days, its a life changer.
tadalafil for Erectile Dysfunction: I'm a 47 yr old male, runner (in good shape), non-smoker, never on any long term meds aside from ADD treatment with Wellbutrin (worked well). Sex life began declining about 7 yr ago but never thought I had erectile dysfunction until this summer when the equipment stopped working sporadically. Then I went on Strattera and prostatic hyperplasia hit with full blown erectile dysfunction. Doc gave me 5 mg Cialis, tried it twice and its fantastic. Not only can I urinate, but erectile dysfunction symptoms are virtually non-existent. It feels like my whole pelvic region dilates and my plumbing really gets a thorough roto-rootering! Great stuff. I hope it keeps on working!
Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: I finally worked up the courage to talk with my doctor about erections and asked for a prescription. I take an antiseizure medicine that has erectile dysfunction as a side effect and am 62. The erection effects of this medicine are amazing. I split a 20mg pill in as many pieces as I can without them crumbling, usually 5, and let them dissolve under my tongue. If I take some Friday night I am good for the weekend and have that fullness feeling throughout the day that makes me feel like a 20 year old and have a hair trigger erection when we are ready for sex. Stuffy nose is irritating, mildly dull headache that Tylenol takes care of. First couple of weeks taking this I did experience muscle aches but these went away as my body became more accustom to it.

Cialis (tadalafil) for Erectile Dysfunction: Taking daily dose of 5 mg. Take about noon each day. Improved urination substantially. Erection has improved but might need higher dose a few hours before sex. Side effects are minor with indigestion, ringing in ears and some face flushing. But, overall satisfied. Will continue use and adjust dose to best fit me. I'm 61 years old.
