My husband took cialis for the first time and in the middle of the night he got up to go to the bathroom and passed out and went crashing to he floor and was out for about 30 seconds and did not even remember what had happened. He also takes losartan potassium but did not take it for a few days. Could it be a drug interaction?

Dizziness and fainting is very common after consumption of CIALIS.
That is why the person is asked to get up slowly from bed,if he has taken CIALIS.
This is the side effect of the drug and is not the case of drug interaction.
You must talk to the cardiologist and seek his advise for...

I take Cialis for erectile assitance whne intercourse with my wife is desired. However, I also am taking terazosin hcl capsules (2mg) as prescribed (2 capsules every evening).

I am 30 Years Old male and I am suffering from psychogenic ED. Cialis 10mg doesnt works for me. I want to use Cialis 20mg,till i get my confidence back. and get the resolution to this problem.But my concern here is regarding the dosage.

But I am concerned about the side effects. Does cialis 20mg has more side effects than cialis 10mg? I have read on the internet ,that cialis has the same side effects irrespective of the dosage? And Cialis rarely has any side effects.

I want you to please address my concern regarding the side effects of cialis. Hope you understand.

hi
I am 29 years old unmarried male suffering from Psychogenic ED. In order to combat that ,i am using cialis 10mg ,Argin and Staminol ultra(A GNC product containing yohimbe 50mg,Horny Goat Weed ,Ginseng and others). It works pretty fine.
But i have following concerns:-
1) First of all i am worried about cardio side effects possible with cialis 10mg.since i use to get satisfactory erections with cialis 10 mg only.I dont have any Physical,Heart,BP ,blood sugar problem.My ECG,Penile doppler,Testosterone,cholestrol and fastening blood sugar tests are perfectly fine. And nor do i have the history of any heart disease in my family.I havent experienced any side effects with cialis 10mg yet.But still i am worried that i might develop any cardiovascular disease since i am using cialis 10 mg after every 36 hours for past 2 months.And have the plans to continue the same for long term. Kindly address my concern.
And if there is any risk then kindly suggest any ayurvedic or some other medicine ,that could be taken along with cialis to minimize the cardiovascular side effects.
2) Apart from this i can masturbate and my all physical tests are perfectly fine. I would like to mention that this performance anxiety ED started 2 years before only. Since i am quite yound and prior to that i never faced any problem and had a good sex life.so i use to get a guilt feeling ,whenever i use cialis 10mg. since previously i never used any pill. Hope you understand.
3) I have heard that there is a new drug named Zoraxel(Rexahnn Pharmaceuticals) that will specially going to address performance anxiety without any cardio side effects. Can u tell me when is this medicine going to hit the market?
4) I have heard that there is a new ED treatment availaible as Vaitaros cream(free from cardio side effects). Can i use that?
5) Is there any ayurvedic medicine or any other medicine that could be used in combination with cialis 10mg for better results?

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?

doctor1 MD

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?
