Cialis side effects and contraindications – the reverse side of a coin

Cialis is considered the safest and reliable drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. According to patients’ reports, it causes adverse effects rarely and they are not severe. Nevertheless, it is a drug, and all the drugs, even the safest ones, sometimes provoke negative effects.

First of all, it is necessary to keep in mind that Cialis has a certain influence on the heart and on the entire cardiovascular system. Initially, PDE-5 inhibitors were intended for the treatment of angina and some related diseases. Tadalafil, which is the active component of Cialis, reduces the blood pressure and stimulated the blood circulation. That is why, patients with heart problems, especially those who have experienced a heart attack or a stroke recently, should be very careful when taking Cialis. Side effects of Cialis include lowering of blood pressure, this is why the drug is absolutely contraindicated in the patients, who are taking any nitrate-containing medicines to deal their heart problems, including a well-known glycine. In combination with nitrates, Cialis can cause a severe drop in blood pressure, which can become fatal for the patients with a weak heart.

Though Cialis side effects are quite rare, one should be aware of possible negative reactions before taking the drug. The most frequent complaints of patients include the following ones:

• A headache or dizziness. A headache can be rather severe and stop only when the effect of the drug stops. Sometimes a headache pill helps to ease the pain, but some men even have to stop treatment with Cialis, because of severe symptoms.
• Temporary change of vision. Tadalafil can have an impact on the visual nerve. The result is blurred vision or change of vision. Also, several cases of temporary loss of vision were recorded.
• Ringing in the ears.
• Nausea, vomiting, upset stomach or diarrhea.
• Flushing, burning face. Tadalafil stimulates blood circulation, so, flushing is quite a typical adverse effect.
• Changes in blood pressure. This is more typical for the patients with heart problems. If you have ever had any troubles with the cardiovascular system, blood pressure or other cardiologic problems, you’d better consult a cardiologist before taking Cialis.
• Breast ache or angina.Also, occurs in men suffering from heart problems.
• Priapism – a long painful erection of the penis, which doesn’t stop after ejaculation. However, this occurs very rarely, and usually in those men, who had cases of priapism before.
• Allergic reaction. It occurs in cases of the idiosyncrasy of the components. If you are allergic, be careful when taking the drug.

In most cases, these side effects are moderate and don’t require medical interference. However, in a certain situation, you may need a specialist’s help. Thus, call for emergency medical help, if you’ve got a strong allergic reaction, high temperature, difficult breathing, severe drop in blood pressure as well as a constant erection that lasts more than four hours and causes discomfort to you. These situations can be dangerous for your health. Keep in mid. also that if you have any serious health problems, endocrine disorders or chronic diseases of inner organs, you are strongly recommended to call for a medical advice, and not buy Cialis without doctor’s prescription.
