“I wrote earlier that adding the .5 mg Cialis combined with the 40mg Flomax gave me great results. BUT, the side effects (which a number of people have reported here ) were a big problem. Bad back aches and head aches after about 3 days of use. But great results with urinary problems of BPH. So I had to quit the Cialis for a few days to get it out of my system. Then started one half of a pill, every other day thinking that I will increase as need. Well never needed to increase. Another words a quarter dose. And great results! Only get up once a night to pee! First time for that in decades. Also although didn’t have a lot of problems with erections for my age, 75, Yes it did improve that too. With just a quarter dose. And NO side effects. Have been on this regimen now for about 3 months. All good! PS. Initially my insurance wouldn’t cover Tadalafil but my Dr, called and explained that it was for BPH and now they cover it.”

“Take Flomax for bph. So so results with flomax. Added .5 TDalifil with good results in 1 day. By 3rd day had to stop due to bad back pain and headache. Have stopped now for a day 35 hrs since last dose and pain gone. I will now try one dose every other day. Will come back to site will results. Great to have all this info. Thanks.”

“After taking the drug Cialis I had medium success but over the next 12 hours developed several back pain such that I could barely walk. This continued for several days. I took it again a couple of weeks later ... and the same thing! Have tried again over a period of several years.”

“I’m a retired pharmacist. Please do not store any medication in the FREEZER thinking it may extend the shelf life. The moisture in a freezer may cause the drug to degrade (think of those bags of veggies you store). Unless otherwise advised, store at room temperature out of strong light.”

“I take the 5mg generic which cost $33.79 for 90 pills with goodrx coupon along with flomax. I now pee like like a champ and empty my bladder completely. No more waking up 5 times a night. The constant urge to pee has disappeared. Most all my prostatitis symptoms have gone away. Took about a week to feel the full benefits. No side effects that I've noticed except being able to keep my 24 year younger wife happy "anytime". I was truly suffering there for a while.”

“Compared to Flomax (Tamsulosin), Tadafadil is a game changer. Doesn’t stop you're erection or stop you're libido.”

“Cialis has helped me immensely with my prostate issues. Highly recommend it. Expensive though. I get my meds from Canada, cheaper.”

“I've used Cialis for a couple years since my TURP surgery which left me with not the best results in bed. Well it gets a 10 in that dept, but I do get the backaches. Stretches and yoga take care of that part. I'm 65 years old and bike ride and use the 5mg. ”

“Age 80. Tried Cialis 20mg prn for ED with excellent results. Now on 5mg qd with some improvement in urine flow after 1 month. Also good for ED. Also good for libido since it doesn't take much to get going and improved confidence that I can get the job done.”

“I was scheduled for TURP invasive surgery for my BPH over 3 years ago. After talking to an East Indian friend of mine who also has the BPH (he's 72). He also opted for Cialis 10mg/daily. I started with 20mg daily but had erections all night long so I cut it to 10mg. I am 73 very athletic and workout with guys 25-35 years old without any feel of being behind them. I watch my weight which I maintain 140 lbs for 5ft.8 height. Instead of weight lifting etc.I do mostly stretching yoga exercises that keep my body toned and not to build the muscles. I look no more than 50 and still do the things (sex etc) like I am 25! Cialis 10mg/daily that I buy at fraction of the cost. It has made me urinate normally and don't have a single side effect as I work out lightly at the Gym 3-4 times a week. Sauna, Jaccuzzi and steam really helps the body after workout.”

“I’m in my 20s on this for BPH symptoms. Works very well, reduced trips to the bathroom in the morning from 3-4 times to just one trip. I’ve been on this medication for 2 months now. In my opinion it’s far superior to flomax for this issue. The added side effect of being able to go round after round in the bedroom is cool as well.”

“I am 55 and have had BPH for the last 6 years. Was living in France at the time when diagnosed and their approach was to go for surgery. Once I'd read up on that I was like 'no way!' I was 50 not 75. So got prescribed Siladosin which worked well but didn't like the side effects of retro-ejaculation. So after researching on the internet I have been self-medicating 5mg Tadalafil (generic) for the last 4 years. It has made a difference, and I now can go 6/7 hours at night without needing to pee. I was taking it at around 10pm each evening. However, over the last six months I have noticed that it was becoming more difficult to pee during the daytime, so 5 days ago I started taking 1 x 5mg at 10pm in the evening, and 1 x 5 mg at 7am in the morning. This has made a huge difference and I am now a lot more comfortable during the day and my flow has improved.”

“I was prescribed Cialis for BPH 5 mg daily and having been 60 years old I welcomed the "side effect" of having monster erections. All that did come with a price though, as about 3 days in to taking the 5 mg dose daily I started experiencing excruciating pain in my lower back and buttock. I did an extensive research in to this matter. I am NOT an MD. I am sharing what I found and what worked for me to rid of my pain and it has not returned since. This is based partially on a study I found and you should check with your doctor before you do this. Full disclaimer... I am sharing this NOT as a recommendation but as what I did and it is strictly for "entertainment purposes only" 1. Discontinue Cialis for 5 days to clear it from your system Do this for 3 days ONLY: 2. Take Aleve 220 mg and Tylenol 325 mg 2 hour prior taking the 5 mg Cialis for 3 days ONLY 3. Discontinue taking the Aleve 220 mg and Tylenol 325 mg after the day 3 4. Day 4 forward continue with the Cialis”

“I can urinate easily with noticably better flow when I take Cialis 20 mg for ED. I also take flomax. I tried 5 mg Cialis daily for 3 weeks but side effects became too much and I had to stop. The aches and pains were not worth the benefit. If I was an old guy with a young bimbo I would take 5 mg daily to satisfy her. 5mg daily after a week let me have erections on demand. I still use 20 mg occaisionally for ED and it works great and lasts for 2 days. I prefer Levitra 20 mg for ED because the side effects don't last as long.”

“I fax my prescription to a a Canadian pharmacy and receive a 90 day supply. It is a generic and cost $30 per month. It works tremendously well as I found out when I ran out for a month. Now after a few days back on it I’m doing great again. I’m taking it for BPH but in helps me to have a stronger erection that lasts to climax. No side effects that I notice. I’m in my early sixties. I tried Flonase but it made things worse for me”

“I was taking the daily 5 mg dose, initially to see if it helped with my BPH symptoms and ED. We found it did virtually nothing to improve my BPH symptoms, but also that it was the only dose my insurance would cover and only if it was prescribed for BPH and NOT for ED! (Go figure!) I continued for about 4 years on 5 mg daily. During that same timeframe, I started experiencing brutal lower back pain during the night, causing sleep loss, and getting out of bed and standing in the morning became almost excruciating. At 68 y/o, I thought it was just age catching up with me. Well, when I recently ran out, I decided to take a break, partly for financial reasons and partly because I wasn't experiencing enough benefits in the ED to justify the pricey copays. MUCH TO MY SURPRISE and delight, my severe back pain disappeared completely in only a few days! What a hard learned lesson! (no pun intended!)”

“Works great on BPH ,doctor switches every 6 months from flomax and 6 months on Cialis .That way body don't get adjusted to one are the other. Side effects can be bothersome but worth it, cutback dosage to half every other day. Able sleep all night without going to bathroom often. Works great.”

“For BPH sufferers in the UK, I offer my experience. Researching treatments for BPH, I discovered that the NHS has approve the prescription of cialis (or generic tadalafil) to address the symptoms of BPH. I persuaded my GP to prescribe it for me, and it works a treat, minimising the effects of my prostate enlargement (urgency, in my case). There is one side effect that should be noted. It promotes really good erections. To my mind, this is definitely a side effect to embrace! I note that in comparative trials, Tadalafil performed better than Tamsulosin.”

“Waited for tadalafil to become generic as long as I could. Price for cialis way too much. Found online and bought. I had a little back ache for the first day or two then no side effects. I haven't been back to Dr to see if BPH has improved, but way awesome erection and climax improvement. If loving tadalafil is wrong I'll never be right. I take 5mg per day by splitting a 20mg. I know this is not recommended but it is the most economical way and not supposed to split - it works great so I'm OK with it. Supposed to be generic in USA in 2018.”

“I buy cialis online for a tiny fraction of what you pay in Australia. I buy 20mg tablets for 20 cents each then quarter them. They work good for BPH and ED. The pharmacy industry is rolling us over a barrel. ”

“I had a severely bad experience with BHP for 6 months , tried all kind of medications recommended by the doctors , Urinating was a painful experience and even had blood drops because I was severely straining myself to urinate . After reading the reviews of others I tried Cialis 5 mg daily and within 4 days there was ease in my symptoms and was able to urinate easily and relief from pain . Even the night time frequency of urinating stopped and was able to sleep better the whole night . This Cialis is a God sent solution . Excellent results .”

“I'm a 70 year-old guy who has had BPH for over 10 years. Was taking Avodart, which worked OK, but had the sexual side effect of reducing the amount of semen I produced, which greatly impeded my sexual performance. Switched to 5 mg daily of Cialis 5 months ago. I was pleased to find that semen production returned to normal in about 2 months, which was the main reason for switching drugs. But much to my surprise I found that it reduced BPH symptoms by about 90%. It's turned out to be a miracle drug for me--no side affects that I'm aware of. Enhanced erections is an extra benefit.”

“I've tried Viagra and found it worked pretty well, I had some side effects namely heart burn and headaches so thought I'd try Cialis to see if I suffered from the same effects. I started off by taking 10mg of Cialis and after an hour I had a slight stirring in the loins but that was about it, so took the remainder of the dosage (10mg) and it helped slightly but was still less that I would normally get without any medication, very disappointed and to top it all I've had heart burn most of the following day. I bought a pack of 8 costing a reasonable amount to add to the situation. Guess it works for some and not others.”
