Cialis Side Effects

We, the people writing for this site, really think that Cialis is the best ED medication available to men at the moment. However, even though we would love to say that it’s flawlessly powerful and absolutely safe, we can’t. Unfortunately, Cialis can cause certain adverse effects in a relatively large number of people taking it (up to 10% or even 15%). The main aim of this article is to list all possible side effects of this medication and show our readers how to avoid those or make them as mild as it’s only possible. Read on – and we will gladly show you how to make Cialis deliver nothing but pleasure to you and your lucky partner.

We’ll start with the most widespread side effects of Cialis, which, fortunately, are anything but deadly. In fact, most men claim that they are so mild they can barely notice them. After that, we will switch on to less common but more dangerous adverse effects and finish it all off with the list of those that are observed least often and are anything but life-threatening. In the end of the article we will list some of the most widespread risk factors that might cause side effects in Cialis users and will teach you how to avoid those and what to do in case you notice some strange symptoms after taking Cialis. Please, read this article carefully as it might as well save your life in the extremely unlikely event of something going really wrong.

Most common Cialis side effects

Before we switch on to the list of most common side effects of Cialis, let us mention one really important thing. As you might have already heard from somewhere or guessed yourself, the likelihood of suffering from any of this medication’s side effects depends on which version of it you are taking, and depends hugely. It is 36-hour Cialis that is known as the ‘bad guy’ that might cause quite a few adverse effects due to high concentration of Tadalafil in it (up to 20 mg per pill) while with Cialis for daily use and its measly 2.5 mg or even 5 mg pill side effects are extremely unlikely. Thus, if you are taking low-strength Cialis daily, you’re definitely playing on the safe side and run considerably fewer risks. In the following paragraphs we will try to showcase it.

So, the most common side effect that quite a few Cialis users are highly likely to experience after popping the pill is headache. It is observed in 15% of men on 20 mg Cialis and 11% of men on the 10 mg version of the med. For 5 mg and 2.5 mg Cialis users the risk of suffering from headache within a few hours of taking the pill equals to 6% and 3% respectively. Curiously enough, 5% of men who were told they were taking Cialis but were offered placebo instead reported suffering from headache, which means that quite a few reported cases of this adverse effect (as well as of many others) might be due to psychological rather than physiological reasons.

Anyway, even though one in every 6-10 men gets a headache after taking Cialis, it almost never gets too bad. In fact, most of those guys who feel it describe it as ‘mild’ or ‘moderate’. Would you let mild or moderate headache stop you from enjoying some good sex? Come on! Even if it does, it’s not likely to last for more than 2 or 3 hours while the effect of Cialis will be with you for up to 36 hours or even permanently if you’re taking the pill for daily use. Thus, as you can see, that headache is not that much of a threat.

Another fairly common but not really intimidating side effect of Cialis is dyspepsia, which is observed in 4-10% of men taking this medication (the percentage depending on the strength of the pill, just like with the headaches). Dyspepsia might cause a bunch of different symptoms, such as high gastric juice acidity, heartburn, belching and overall stomach discomfort. Though clearly unpleasant, these are probably not going to spoil your sexual adventure either, right?

What might be rather distressing and is reported by 2-6% of Cialis users is back and muscle pain that might appear around 12 hours after you take the pill and persist for the following 12-24 hours. While most men experiencing it describe it as resembling ‘pleasant strain from too much physical activity’, it can get fairly nasty in some Cialis users making them go to their doctor for help. We recommend that you refrain from soothing such aches (if you ever experience them) with painkillers but contact your healthcare provider about it instead.

Less common but dangerous Cialis side effects

Unfortunately, there have been at least a few cases of serious side effects caused by Cialis reported during the history of this drug. Those were mostly a result of overdose or failure to avoid certain meds and substances that intensify the effect of Cialis, which we will talk about later. However, we still feel we need to warn you about them, just to raise your awareness and make you understand how important it is to follow the directions for use of Cialis.

First of all, there’s a chance you can suffer from severe hypotension when taking Cialis together with other drugs that are known to decrease blood pressure. This may result in dizziness, nausea or even fainting. Additionally, if you don’t refrain from using Tadalafil along with nitrate medications or recreational drugs called poppers, you have a risk of suffering a stroke or heart attack, which might not only be extremely painful and dangerous for your health and wellbeing but also downright life-threatening.

Even though it’s still not clear if Cialis alone can cause heart problems or not, you must remember to contact your doctor in case you notice any of the following symptoms after taking this medication: pain, tightness, numbness or tingling sensations in your chest, limbs, neck or jaw or chest heaviness.

Another very serious condition that can be caused by ED meds and Cialis in particular – but is often disregarded by men or even laughed at in spite of its morbid consequences – is priapism. Basically, it is an abnormally long-lasting erection that just wouldn’t go away for 4 hours or more. Sometimes such erections get painful and really bother the ones getting them but sometimes men just leave things as they are – not knowing that an erection that lasting will most probably lead to permanent damage of tissues inside the penis and permanent inability to get erections after that. Thus, if you get an outstandingly lasting erection that doesn’t grow limp even after orgasm, seek emergency medical assistance immediately.

Finally, there’s one more condition that calls for immediate medical assistance if you notice it after taking Cialis. There have been a few registered cases of men suffering from sudden hearing loss or vision problems after taking ED medications similar to Cialis. Even though it’s still not expressly proven that Tadalafil can cause such side effects alone or in combination with other substances or factors, most doctors agree that there’s a chance it can.

Less common and not really dangerous Cialis side effects

It took us a while to decide whether it was okay to put allergy on this list or it would have been better to leave it on the list of rare and dangerous side effects but… We did what we did, so here it is. See, this medication is not really likely to cause an acute anaphylactic reaction – at least, there hasn’t been even a single case reported so far. However, it can still cause some pretty vivid symptoms of allergy to appear, including but not limited to rashes, cracking, peeling or loosening of skin, hives, itching, skin lesions and sudden swelling of limbs.

Additionally, up to 3% of Cialis users can suffer from any of the following: nasal congestion, diarrhea and/or facial flashing. Naturally, the percentage of men experiencing these side effects will be closer to 3% in 36-hour Cialis users and significantly lower in those who prefer low-strength Cialis for daily use.

Some sources also list ‘spontaneous penile erection’ among side effects of Cialis. Sounds like a good joke, doesn’t it? Side effect, really? Come on, give us a break!

Are there any particular reasons why Cialis side effects occur?

As we have already stated above, it has been expressly proven many times already that Cialis side effects are more likely to be observed in men who fail to follow the directions for use of this medication. Adverse effects of Cialis are much more likely to hit you if you take more Cialis than you were recommended to, take it along with nitrates, certain antibiotics and antifungals, grapefruit or grapefruit juice (these two make your body absorb Tadalafil much faster, which may result in an overdose) or too much alcohol. If you, however, play by the rules and take Cialis exactly the way it was recommended by your doctor or, at least, in full accordance with the guidelines stated on the package insert, you probably won’t experience any side effects.

Besides, it’s important to remember that Cialis should not be taken along with other medications intended for enhancing you sexual performance. For instance, popping a pill of Cialis for your first intercourse and a Viagra for the second, both within a few hours, is a total no-no. Please, remember that all PDE5 inhibitors used to treat ED work the same way, which is why mixing them together is never a good idea as it may result in the effect being too intense.

Plus, remember that having liver or kidney problems or problems with your heart makes taking Cialis a fairly dangerous experience. The former two will probably make the half-life of Tadalafil stretch beyond usual in your system, which is why you risk overdosing on this medication even if you take the pills less often than once in 36 hours. The latter, in its term, can add to Cialis’s side effects and be very dangerous too.

What should I do in case I notice any side effects?

Cialis side effects can vary in intensity and the degree of risk they expose you to. Consequently, there are different ways you should react to different side effects. The most common and mildest ones don’t call for doctor’s attention while some of the more serious ones require that you seek emergency medical attention immediately in case you experience them. In this part of our article we will go through the list of Cialis adverse effects once again quickly and show you what exactly you should do when you notice this or that weird symptom after you take this pill.

First of all, let us go through the list of side effects that don’t pose any real threat to your health or life and can simply be disregarded. As you can guess, these are the most common ones that we have listed above, namely, headache, muscle and back pains, nasal congestion and digestion problems. These usually appear 1-12 hours after you take the medication and disappear all by themselves gradually as the effect of Cialis wears off. However, if you feel that any of these symptoms get abnormally persistent or deliver you too much discomfort, you should consider contacting your doctor and asking him or her about it.

Contact your doctor immediately if you notice any of the following side effects after taking Cialis: priapism, sharp or dull pain, numbness or tingling in your chest, limbs or lower jaw, swelling of your arms or feet, irregular heartbeat, severe dizziness or fainting, changes to your hearing or vision. Please, don’t think that simply ‘lying down for a moment’ will do the job for you and bring you back to normal – the above symptoms can mark the onset of adverse effects that can be really dangerous for your health or even life.

As you can see, Cialis is far not the most dangerous medication out there – even drugs that people use to treat simple cold can have more side effects than this one. Nevertheless, just as we said in the very beginning of this article, Cialis is not 100% safe either, which is exactly why it is important to distinguish its side effects and know, which ones can potentially be dangerous and which can be left unnoticed. Please, take the information you got from this article as seriously as possible – and we’re sure your overall health and wellbeing will be as flawless as your sex life on Cialis.
