Brief Answer:
It dependa on your tolerability.

Detailed Answer:
Dr. Hanif warmly Welcomes you to my virtual clinic HCM!
I have carefully worked through your case, and can realize your health worries. Being your physician, I will take care all of your medical concerns.



It depends on the tolerability of the individual person.

I usually recommend the Tadalafil to my patients in one of the two patterns:


1. Once daily dosage:
started from 2.5mg per day, and seeing the effects and tolerability and seeing other drug interactions, can be increased to 5mg per day.

2. Before sexual intercourse dosage pattern:-
Given usually 5mg per event (before the intercourse). Can be increased to 20mg.



If you don't have blood pressure issues and not taking other drugs e.g antivirals and antifungals etc, don't have a heart issue, or comorbidities, yes you may take 10mg before the intercourse (but not on daily basis then as you are taking the 5mg dose daily).



Have a wonderful time ahead. Hope I answered all of your questions. Let me know if you have any further clinical concerns or doubts. I will be more than happy to get back to you in no time. If satisfied here, please give a generous five star rating and don't forget to close the discussion.
For any disease you have, a timely follow-up after sometime regarding the treatment efficacy and to see any need to change the treatment options is very necessary. Keep a follow up some days after this visit session ends.


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.

I am a healthy 27 year old male, and have recently noticed a slight difficulty getting or maintaining a full erection. I am in great shape, but have not slept well in a while, and drink a good amount of caffiene. Can I try viagra or cialis? and is it alright to take while drinking?

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
