Question: Hello Doctor - I took Tab Tadalafil 2mg yesterday at 4pm and since 7pm I am having body ache, it was there in the night and it is still there. I feel like very tired. Erection was fine, it remains positively better than the usual ones but this tiresome is not going. . It is accompanied by noting, just body ache.

Is it normal ?

Thanks for the query
Body aches , esp backache is common side effect with Tadalafil . It should be fine in a day or two Next time either try 10 mg or some other salt like Udenafil . You can take a pain killer in the interim
