Reviews for Cialis

ComeFromBehindVictory · Taken for 1 to 2 years February 15, 2020

For Erectile Dysfunction: “From Zero to Hero. My newly reinvigorated wife calls Cialis "the 8th Wonder of the World!" So, from the Struggle to the Reckoning and everything in between: from Bored, Deplored and Ignored to Lord of the Sword Restored now Adored. She's Floored. I Scored. Hard to Afford yet Cialis wins, Top Shelf Award.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “OK. Started dating again after being a single parent to 2 kids for several years. I started dating someone much younger than I. Our first time intimately, I could get it up but not last too long. I told her it's been a while... Went to Dr the next day and got a script for the generic version. I took 10mg before our dinner plans so I knew that would be about 2 hours. The only side-effect happened within minutes of taking the pills which was my face was flush and warm. It went away in a few minutes. Over dinner I had a little anxiety about side-effects but that's the only one I had. We pretty much had sex all night long with a couple of cool-down naps. After sleeping in and some brunch, we had sex the rest of the day. She kept commenting on how hard I was and she couldn't get enough. I still felt the effects after 36 hours. Couldn't believe it. Basically gets hard when you want, not all day.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I've been using Cialis for about 3 yrs. and I'm now 73. I cut a 20mg tablet into quarters(about 5mg) and take one every 3rd day. I have erections whenever I wish and I feel great. I must say that I sincerely believe that this use makes me way more horny than ever in my life.”

Raza · Taken for 1 to 2 years January 3, 2021

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I'm 40 years old, mild ED past few years. First 5mg dose I took, it was solid as a rock within 1/2 hour, felt very full and stayed hard as long as I wanted, didn't want it stop, was like a new toy. Was able to j/o 3 times that day and then get down to it with the other half that night with the same rock solid hardness every single time. I j/o a lot as I have a higher sex drive. Definitely makes it look bigger when flaccid and the slightest bit of arousal can get it solid if I want it to. Incredible morning wood, every day. Headache and lower back ache when taking for the first 3 months but now 12 months of use and no side effects.”

Realtor Bob April 20, 2021

For Erectile Dysfunction: “A gym buddy told me about cialis. Started with a 10mg but moved up to the 20mg. Takes usually about an hour to work and I like taking it on an empty stomach with lots of water. It works so well that you need to be sure you want an erection because your erection might not just go away very easily. I've found that it's almost too easy to get an unintentional erection, like in the shower. That can make for longer showers. Also after climaxing you're pretty much a quick reload so I've sort of learned to treat it like a loaded gun. Don't brandish it, don't point it in the wrong direction. Treat it like it's loaded.. Another plus is that it makes my penis fuller when it's not erect and there is something really nice about that. It hangs bigger. No weird side effects.This sounds sappy but I'm seriously thankful to God for cialis. It makes me feel like a young man again.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “68 Year Old Male: Wow, this drug was awesome and worked fantastic the first time I used it (10 mg). I was so happy, and my wife was as well. I would have rated it a 10! However, after the third time I took the drug I developed the most severe back and leg ache I've ever experienced in my life. It was so bad, I could not sleep. I took pain medication up to and including Tramadol and NO EFFECT. After 48 hours it finally subsided. I cannot describe how bad the pain was--I'll just say it was excruciating! I'm so disappointed because the product works so well--VERY WELL to be exact. But, now I'm afraid to take it. I may try even lower dose--5mg? or 2.5 mg? I certainly want to give it a try because it was amazing at first! But, I must admit I'm now very apprehensive.”

For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: “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!”

Frequently asked questions

MM · Taken for less than 1 month September 4, 2020

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I shared with my doctor (a woman too) my ED situation for the last 6 months. So she recommended Cialis after asking all the right questions about heart problems if any in my family history etc. All was good. But I personally felt scared about using this, so I cut a 5mg in half and woke up the next morning with an erection. So took the 5 mg about three hrs before having sex with my wife and I have to say it was wonderful. She was surprised and I was too. It's something we have been missing for months although we have been intimate in other touching ways. But to have sexual intercourse that is satisfying for my wife and me is a bonding that makes us even closer. I'm in my late 60s and it's something in our marriage that we had so good in the past, but for the last 6 months and many times even later than that sexual intercourse just didn't happen. She was very understanding but I felt it necessary to try this. It worked and is great. I will continue and try it again soon. Thanks! ~MM”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I am turning 50 this year. My wife and i have been together since we were 17. We have always had a great sex life, but in the last two years her sex drive has exploded. My buddy has had trouble keeping up, and it has caused me anxiety because sometime I could not go the second or third time. I got the prescription this weekend and holy cow, like my 20's again, with 50 year old experience. Lets just say the wife could not be more happy. We went at it at least 15 times this weekend...oh, it may be that I wasn't getting full erections, but it made it bigger, both when limp and hard... she liked that very much...”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “Took 5mg on Saturday for the first time. I suffer from soft erections and premature ejaculation at times. 7 hours after taking had a very hard erection and went two times over 1.5 hours. Partner very happy. Lasted a long time both times. Slight problem reaching ejaculation second time but gave my partner plenty of time to get fully satisfied . No side effects, still working after 48 hours. Very happy.”

For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: “I was taking Flowmax and did not like the side effects. I started taking Cialis 5mg/day and after a month Cialis 5mg started to lose its effectiveness, Since last 2 years I've been taking Cialis 10mg/day and it works wonders, obviously, with favorable side effects! I am urinating a lot easier and it's improving slowly. I'm very satisfied with generic Cialis that I buy online from Egypt at 10% of the prices here in California. I buy 200 pills at a time at 23 cents a pill for 20mg that I split in half to take. It costs more for the FedEx than the generic Cialis. I calculated the total cost per pill including the FedEx, it comes to .43/pill that I cut in half to take. So it's costing 23 cents pr pill a day.”

Generic does not work · Taken for 2 to 5 years June 7, 2019

For Erectile Dysfunction: “Brand name versus generic. I have always had great success with brand name Cialis. Just one 5mg tablet works for 5 to 7 days. Now that there geriatrics available the price is way down but look out for fakes. My first generic priced was Prasco brand. This is made in the USA by Eli Lilly. It's the same stuff as brand name. Even the egg shaped tablet is the same with the C5 stamp and it works well. Than a pharmacy refiled my script with BurelPharma brand. This 5mg Tadalafil tablet is smaller and an oval shape. Their imported by Burel pharma a US middle man. The actual manufacturer is Aurobindo in India. Do not buy these or accept them. they are absolute junk. They do not even work at twice the dose! I made the pharmacy refund the purchase.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “Prescribed Cialis 5mg and results were impressive after an initial dizziness. Incredibly hard erections with penis shaft thicker than I can ever remember- Penis head and rim larger too! When flaccid penis remains thicker and impressive. Love waking up with a boner each morning these days - can’t get enough sex these days much to my partner’s delight!”

Linkslad November 23, 2014

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I lost my wife to cancer three years ago. Recently I have found a new partner, who is even more interested in sex than myself. I am 80 years old and my partner 82. I have found it increasingly difficult to get an erection and when one does occur difficult to retain. I have scoured the net for an answer to my problem, trying numerous products with no success. But at last Cialis has answered our prayers. I take Cialis 10mg and the effect lasts for at least 36 hours. Rock hard erections that last as long as required, I feel like a "real man" once again. My partner and I are a pair of very, very happy "golden oldies".”

SayMan June 7, 2008

For Erectile Dysfunction: “An excellent drug. Brought back performance of 30 year old. At lower doses the effect can vary. Suggest 20 mg about two hours before sex, but will work well for long duration after that. Drink one to two glasses of water when taking to improve absorption. Exercise, relax and enjoy.”

For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: “I am in my early 50's and suffered with erectile dysfunction and benign prostatic hyperplasia the last few years. On and off again prostatitis using antibiotics and getting awful side effects. Saw advertisement for Cialis for daily use and talked to my urologist about it. Had the voucher for 30 day free trial. After ONE WEEK, I was urinating normal, and not waking in the middle of the night to go! After two weeks I was getting erections like a teen again, middle of the night, mornings and when I wanted sex. I couldn't be happier, no more pain, more sex and a happier wife!”

Young again · Taken for 6 months to 1 year September 20, 2019

For Erectile Dysfunction: “Age 54. Started experiencing inconsistent erections and overall less rigidity a couple years ago. Overall good health and my T results are normal range. Likely stress from job and marriage breakdown combined. Made me anxious about performance, especially dating someone brand new after long term marriage break-up. Talked to my doc. He suggested Cialis. It’s simply brilliant! In a relationship now with a woman almost 20 years younger and we enjoy long intimate sessions for as long as we like and up to 3 times in a day when we are on vacation. Wonderful!!”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “At 62 I began to notice lazy erections. Tried many self-directed strategies including no alcohol, changes of venue, positions etc. with little success. At 63 I got Cialis prescription for 20mg. First weekend was great....woweezowee. The least thought of loving had my "buddy" very attentive. My wife was also amazed. The wood stuck around for entire event and returned in earnest very soon after. Try this guys, you'll like it. Some flushing and a small back ache but Ibuprofen took care of that.”

Papaho · Taken for less than 1 month December 6, 2019

For Erectile Dysfunction: “ED (erectile dysfuntion) kind of hit me out of no where as I was under a lot of pressure at work and Christmas demands were piling up. I was prescribed 20mg tablets so I cut one in half and later that night my wife and I were getting busy and again it went from full mast to nothing. Frustratingly I took the second half and went to sleep. Later that night I woke up for the first time in a while with a hard one and then again in the morning I had my old friend morning wood back. I went to work that day and had a few erections so by the time I got home I wanted to try again and boy did it ever kick in. We finished up and an hour later I was ready to go again. This stuff is powerful but may take a but for the first dose to kick in.”

Gram & Gramps September 14, 2014

For Erectile Dysfunction: “Didn't see any reviews from a woman, so here goes: my husband and I are elderly, and we still LIKE sex! However, due to the effects of aging, our sex life has been less than satisfactory in recent years. After his annual physical last week, he talked about his erectile dysfunction with his MD. Long story short, he got Cialis, second day of taking it, we had the best sex we've had in years! No side effects, two very happy over 70's, and this is for real.”

For Erectile Dysfunction: “I’ve used Viagra. After reading reviews I wanted to try Cialis. Night and day. Cialis is my wonder drug. It works fast. It lasts for days it seems. And I can ejaculate easier than I could with Viagra. And I’m not as rock hard. More natural. She can’t even tell. She thinks I’m a 18 year old stud. Morning wood. No problem. And, I read an article that it can restore your natural erections. I think that is really true!”

Bixby Brian December 19, 2014

For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: “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.”
