Hello, XXXXXXX ,
Some of the side effects mentioned from the manufacturer
of Cialis include, headache,muscle pain,indigestion,nausea
etc. You can look this up.
They also say, if you have had kidney or liver problems
you should not take thi.
I understand you had childhood jaundice. This is not the same
as having Hepatitis B or C. If you had one of these and you still
have active virus in your liver, then you should not take cialis.
I am sure you have been tested for these.
You state that your liver function tests are normal now.
That is very good. Stay away from alcohol or drugs that
can affect the liver.
As for LIV 52, it is an alternative, natural medication made
up of a number of ingredients, supposedly all natural.
The research on this is limited and scientific proof of
benefits on the liver is questionable at best.
Produced by Himalaya Herbal , these herbal products
are indicated in Hepatitis (Viral or Alcoholic),Cirrhosis,
after Radiation and chemotherapy etc.
Although they don't mention any side effects, some
of the herbal products do cause allergy symptoms.
If you are not allergic to any of the components you
can take this for whatever it's worth.
Wish you the very best of health.

Thanks for the post. Request you to kindly suggest me any medicine that could be taken on daily basis to keep my liver healthy? Since i have to continue with cialis.

Apart from this please let me know,any medicine that could be taken in order to suppress the muscle ache side effect of cialis? Although i have not experienced any severe muscle ache after taking cialis.

Thanks

Hello, XXXXXXX ,
You can start taking Super B-Complex with Vit-C, one
tablet a day along with 800 i.u. Vit-E once a day. I also
tell my patients to take 1000mg. Of Fish oil capsule
once a day.These along with a high protein diet should
help.
Wish you well.
