Reviews for Cialis to treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

"I have been taking 10mg Cialis, (Tadalafil) with great success. Used to have huge problems years ago, to the point that I was considering surgery. Many medications have terrible side effects like lowering your sexdrive, some even creating irreversible damage. I first found out years ago via the Internet, long before it got approved by the FDA, mentioned it to my Urologist, who was a professor at a university who approved it right away. Medicare is not covering it and the pharmacy was trying to charge $286 for a month supply. This left me the only option to find an pharmacy on the Internet where I get a year supply at a time keeping it in the freezer to preserve its potency. Great results for my prostate and my sex life."

"I started taking 5 mg Cialis daily because of bothersome BPH during the day. (I did not have problems during the night.) After only a couple of weeks, I was better, and in less than 2 months, BPH was not a problem. I do have a somewhat stuffy nose occasionally, but this is minor. I consider myself fortunate to have seen BPH advertisements on television because the ads prompted me to ask my doctor about Cialis."

"I had Cyber Knife in 2015 & mild BPH before and after.Went over a year taking nothing but Flo Max never worked for me, but my BPH got bad & started taking 5 mg cialis which helped.First Urine Culture came back with blood & a UTI. Next 3 were clear Went on Cialis an & Cypro. Then Cialis & Ceturoxime for 7 days and STILL no answers I felt worse then before. I did made the MISTAKE of taking 2 Cialis for 3 days at the end of my Ceturoxime because I felt so horrible DON"T DO THIS Dr said it was a toxic dose.Now Ive been waiting for OVER a week on his orders of "Take Nothing & Go to ER if it gets worse" I cant take anymore ! Going back to my Cialis to see if it can help again. It never did help with libido issues now or before. I have got rid of my Doc"

"I'm a 50 year old with enlarged prostate that caused frequent NEED to urinate and a feeling of never quite emptying my bladder. ED wasn't much of a problem and if there were any issues it was most likely psychological. Within the first few days there was a noticeable difference in frequency and a feeling of emptying my bladder. No bad side effects. Just the flushing and "hot" episodes. I am on a few meds and I know there will be side effects for everything. I just see what is acceptable and work with it. Since my insurance will authorize this medication's use and the side-effects for me are pretty insignificant, I will continue to use it for it's benefits! Great med for my issues!"

"I have been prescribed and have been taking cialis 5 mg to help my BPH symptoms and libido for over a year. Cialis has not helped either of these problems what so ever. A total disappointed."

"75 next year and despite gym work, young attitude, good looks and bod (for 74) prostate and ED have been real problems for some time. Tried 5 mgs daily for almost 1 month, and prostate benefits not too impressive. Depending on mood (psychological issue?) 10 to 20 mgs good for ED if not a bit mechanical. May trial again for a while though price here in Oz round $150 for 4 weeks @ 5mgs a day is no plus!"

"I got some samples from my MD, and after 4 days I'm feeling much better. First time in about a year I've been able to empty my bladder. First time in years I've slept through the night. There seem to be a couple of side effects; slight headache, back stiffness. Nothing as bad as lying in bed, awake, in pain, or being afraid to sit in a theatre for 2 hours. It's going to be expensive, but I'll save money on Flomax and endless bottles of Saw Palmetto."

"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."

"Dose at 0.25 mg had noticeable improvement for BPH symptoms lasting 2 days. Excellent side effect of improved ED function if taken daily at 0.25 mg dosage. Ins. did not cover drug prescribed for ED. Will try for BPH treatment."

"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."
