"Doctor prescribed Tamsulosin (Flowmax) for treatment of BPH. After taking for 30+ days, no improvement and ED side effects were terrible. Stopped Tamsulosin and started Cialis 5mg daily, now for about 45 days. BPH conditions have improved and ED side effects have gone completely away. Now trying to get my Medicare Rx insurance company to approve Cialis 5mg for my BPH drug treatment."

"I have been taking Cialis Daily (5mg) for about two years. When first diagnosed by my Urologist, he prescribed Cialis. at the time it was just approved by FDA to treat BPH. My insurance ,TRICARE, would not authorize until I had tested other drugs designed to treat the condition. The two drugs tested caused very noticeable and uncomfortable side affects. Flomax and Avodart caused conditions such as severe urinary burning , headaches, and digestive discomfort. Both were used for two weeks each. Finally, I was approved for Cialis. Almost immediately, I would say I les than a week, my BPH symptoms subsided significantly. Urination need decreased and became easier. I suffer from Rosacea and this accentuated the blushing quite bit."

"Cialis 5mg daily has reduced frequent and spotty urination with no side effects. However it has done nothing for ED. I have not had a prostrate exam since taking Cialis but assume it is reduced in size."

"I was experiencing frequent urination, especially at night. During the night, I would be up every hour to hour and a half to urinate and flow was weak. I also had to urinate frequently during the day, although not as bad as at night. I was also experiencing increasing urgency, when I had to go, I had to go! My MD recommended Cialis 5mg daily to treat my BPH. I began to notice results in approximately two weeks. Now, I am up once or twice a night and my erections feel like they did when I was in my twenties! (in my sixties now). Only side effects have been flushing of my face and neck, not severe and only lasts a short time and my eyes are bloodshot sometimes. Again, not severe. Very happy with the results!"

"I used Cialis 5mg per day for benign prostate enlargement from November 2013 until November 2015. Although it was apparently effective for limiting prostate problems, since I stopped it in November 2015 I am 99% sure that, as a person with zero history of epilepsy, it caused me to suffer from Transient Epileptic Amnesia [TEA] with the TEA during 2014 being unrecognised due to nocturnal episodes. There is also a strong possibility that my gradual increases in food sensitivities during this period leading to Irrritable Bowel Syndrome was linked to Cialis. This drug should be withdrawn right away for this condition."

"I'm in my late 60s and had been struggling to frequent urination at night, an urgent need here and there during the day, ED, and low libido. My urologist recommended Cialis but when he mentioned the price and the fact that it would not be covered by insurance, I almost decided against it. He was quite sure it would help, however. So I invested in the first month's supply --- and noticed a difference in respect to urination and the rest almost immediately. Quite amazing. Like some other people, I've had a bit of heartburn but no other side effects. Well worth the investment!"

"My urologist suggested that I try 5 mg. Cialis daily for BPH (enlarged prostate). He gave me a two week supply to see if I would incur any side effects. He did make it very clear that treatment for BPH requires about a month's regular use of the 5 mg. daily dose. From the first day onward, I experienced significant heartburn, which was easily remedied by taking a dose of Zantac with the Cialis and a Zantac, 12 hours later. On the 5th day of Cialis, I experienced excruciating muscle pain starting with my lower back, into the buttocks, and legs. At the ER I was informed that between 5-7% of Cialis users will experience this and to stop using Cialis immediately."

"I started taking Cialis 5mg for BPH about 18 months ago. I had been taking all the other FDA approved drugs (alpha blockers) like Avodart and various others. They did not help at all. My Doctor suggested I try Cialis 5mg to help shrink my enlarged prostate. Within a few weeks the number of night time urinations dropped by about 30%. After a year, I was only getting up once a night. By 18 months I was sleeping all night. The daytime urination urges also dropped by the same amounts. I had few, if any, bad side effects. It did produce very firm errections! My doctor has stated that my prostate is in great condition and is normal in size. For the record, I am a fit 66 years old and now sleep all night!"

"Now 61, for four years I have suffered a reduction of urinary flow and an increased urge to urinate due to BPH. Frequently, this would result in near sleepless nights as I arose every hour to urinate. Also, each urination would be accompanied by some pain or burning. Doctor encourages homeopathic remedies and for a few months, I got some relief from taking SAW PALMETTO. However, this effect was short lived and soon all my symptoms returned. Doctor next recommended Flomax (tamsulosin). This failed due to two side effects; headache and loss of erections. We finally tried a 5mg dose of daily Cialis. What a difference! My urinary problems have nearly vanished while experiencing only minor acceptable side effects."

"64 yr old. Tried taking 1/2 of 5mg daily for two weeks and had severe acid reflux pain. Stopped for a week and started taking whole 5mg. Reflux returned but I found that if I drink a glass of water when I feel burning it goes away. Tums or Rolaids help a bit as well. Back to better than youth condition with erections and BPH must be less because I can sleep all night now. The only problem I am having is whether my wife wants it as much as I do. Insurance is $95/30 or $150/90."

"I could not afford any of this medication so I got it filled from Canada and the generic meds made in India works the same for less than two bucks a pill. I was scared by the big drug companies saying it was not safe to get it from other countries. Now I have no problems ordering it from Canada. "

"i have been taking two different meds for years now with moderate to poor success. Sometimes I have to urinate every hour. Since taking cialis daily I can go hours without having the urge to urinate, just like a normal person ! I'm thrilled with the product. Thank you to the drug company for creating this wonderful drug."

"61 yrs old. I was on Hytrin for 14 years but started having extreme pelvic and back pain. Tried Rapaflo but that didn't work at all. Cialis 5mg daily immediately fixed my ED problems, but wasn't a miracle cure for my BPH. I can now sleep for 4-5 hours instead of 2-3 but urine flow still isn't great. At first, it caused intense back and pelvis pain from Day 2 thru Day 7, then stopped. Took pain meds from Day 3 thru 7 which helped immensely. Fortunately, my insurance agreed to cover this with a small co-pay. Overall, well worth the trouble and first week's pain."

"For 10 years have been waking up in the middle of the night 2 to 3 times to urinate. It finally got so bad he started to consider surgery. I was making 4 to 6 times a night. For the past six months I've been on 5 mg of Cialis. Perhaps once a week I will wake up one time in the middle of the night but at least six nights a week I sleep through the night. It has been life-changing!"

"My doctor prescribed me 5mg daily Cialis for BPH. I took the medication the first night and got a terrible headache and muscular pains. I kept taking the medication for 5 more days and I stopped due to the side effects. I stopped taking any BPH meds for 3 days and I decided to give Cialis another try. This time I took an Aleve Liquid Gel about 30 minutes before I took Cialis and I didn't have any side effects at all. I took an Aleve for the next 4 days and then I quit taking that Aleve and haven't had any bad side effects at all. I would encourage anyone that has trouble with this medication to give it a little time before giving up on it. I'm sure glad I did. I starting noticing improvement in my BHP symptoms within a week."

"I have been on Cialis 5mg daily for two years. Urologist appointments every six months. I saw him today and PSA test down to 1.88 from 2.0 in past year. Got new 90 day prescription for Cialis 5mg. Night time bathroom trips average once. Improved energy levels and constant state of semi-arousal. I've had no side effects from the 5mg regimen. I will be 90 years old in 3 months!"

"68 years old. Primary problem: Erections not lasting long enough. Secondary problem: Starting to have to go urinate once or twice at night. Short term erections had ruined our prior healthy sex life and we started avoiding sex altogether, once a month or less. We were both bitter and angry most of the time. Tried 5 mg Cialis for a month on the free trial and cured both problems: Erections lasted long enough (more than half the time) and less waking to urinate. HOWEVER, Cialis made my heart race and beats to become irregular. Had to quit it. Didn't try to half the dose. Now on Levitra 5 mg (prior to sex, only) and no cardiac problems and I can manage to do sex 2 times a week, not enough for me, but the best I can do."

"Avodart was causing me many problems including ED, decreased ejaculate and decreased libido. Rapaflo was also causing quality of erection problems. I started Cialis 5mg and the other medicines were out of my system in about two weeks. NO Benign Prostate Hyperplasia symptoms, which were for me having to urinate at night, plus getting great results from the erectile dysfunction side of Cialis. I sometimes take 10mg booster of Cialis before sex, at the recommendation of the urologist. "

"Cialis 5 mg daily has helped me. I've been taking Cialis for almost 18 months. Erectile Dysfunction and Benign Prostate Hyperplasia are improved. Night bathroom trips dropped from 4 or 5 to 1 or 2. Erections not strong enough for penetration but easily aroused to a kind of floppy erection. Strong sexual desire but difficult to reach orgasm and ejaculation. At age 89 I like the results."

"My age is upper 80s. My urologist prescribed Cialis 5 mg daily about 18 months ago. Amazing medicine. I still have erectile dysfunction and benign prostate hyperplasia but both have improved more with Cialis than Flomax and Proscar. Bathroom trips once per night usually. My penis stays somewhat engorged 24/7 and I am in a constant state of arousal and "sexual awareness". I don't get hard enough for penetration but my penis extremely sensitive."
