Is Cialis right for me?

Erectile dysfunction can be caused by numerous events, which could be medical, physical or emotional. Drug treatments such as the PDE5 inhibitor Cialis can help patients who are unable to achieve an erection due to insufficient penile blood flow, but what about patients suffering from ED that is caused by some other event? Here are a few examples of patients for who should not buy Cialis.

Patients who are taking nitrates for high blood pressure
Cialis can lower blood pressure to dangerous levels in patients who are taking certain medications, such as alpha blockers or nitroglycerin tablets.

Patients who aren't healthy enough for sexual intercourse
Any patient suffering from severe heart disease or cardiovascular illness should not take Cialis or any medication for erectile dysfunction until he is healthy enough to resume sexual activity.

Patients who use recreational narcotics
The use of "poppers" along with ED medications such as Cialis could lead to lowered blood pressure, fainting or even death.

Patients who are allergic to tadalafil
Cialis is the brand name for the drug tadalafil. Make sure you've checked with your doctor to make sure that you aren't allergic.

Patients with anatomical deformation
If the structure of the penis is such that erections cannot be achieved without pain, make sure you address your underlying condition before undergoing any ED drug treatments.

Patients who do not suffer from ED
There are some segments of the population who do not have any problem achieving an erection, but nonetheless take erection medications to give them a "boost." Many (if not all) of these patients are taking the drug without a doctor's supervision, and might not be aware of the potential adverse health effects.

Patients who find sexual arousal difficult
Cialis and other PDE5 inhibitors do not affect a patient's ability to become sexually aroused; they merely facilitate the production of cGMP, allowing relaxation of the penile soft tissue and sufficient blood flow. If you are incapable of becoming sexually aroused, it is advisable to seek help from a licensed counsellor before beginning ED pharmaceutical treatments.

The efficacy and safety of Cialis and other ED medications on female patients have not been studied, and women should not buy Cialis for themselves as it has not been licensed for use by women. However, women who find sexual intercourse or arousal difficult should nonetheless seek advice from their physicians.
