Brief Answer:
Please do following

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for reverting back to me with valuable details.

From the available description I am of the opinion that you have developed erectile dysfunction of organic nature ? probably diabetes induced.

I request you to do following

1. Regular physical exercise to achieve target weight of 70 kg. I understand it is not a easy task but it does not mean it can not be achieved. In my observation with consistent effort there is good possibility of achieving desired results.

2. Estimation of lipid profile and if any abnormality detected go for less fat diet and anti cholesterol medication

3. Stoppage of alcohol if your weekly limit crosses 14 units (420 gram alcohol). Stop smoking if any.

4. Use of tadalafil 5 mg two hours before sex. This will help you in getting desired action before you correct your metabolic parameters such as weight and cholesterol.

I hope this helps you.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for my future patients.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for reverting back to me.

You need to continue this medication for a short time till you achieve proper weght loss and normal lipid profile with healthy life style.

There is no limit on duration but in ideal situations the course should be possible shortest.

Lipid profile means your cholesterol level. Get it done from any nearby laboratory and talk to me/your doctor.

I hope this helps you further.
Thanks and regards.

Just wondering...... I use the 10mg dose of cialis at this time. Thinking about the daily dose? Would I still need an extra tablet before sex? In the reviews I have read that seems the case. Why take every day if that is true? Thank You for your time.
