Cialis is a medicine that is regularly prescribed to patients who are in need of an effective treatment of impotence and / or erectile dysfunction. This drug achieves its goal by relaxing the patient?s penile muscles, thus causing a higher amount of blood to flow into the penis. In this way, a treatment with Cialis is able to facilitate and maintain an erection. However, this medicine might also be used for other purposes that have not been listed here. Ask your personal physician for further information.
Due to the effect of this medicine (Cialis), the erection can sometimes becomes incontrollable (in some cases it lasts for a couple of long hours). If you have had an erection that has lasted more than 4 hours, you should alert your personal physician as soon as possible, because such an erection could damage the penis.
If you are experiencing fainting, dizziness or chest pains you must not continue your regular sexual activity, as these symptoms are probably due to a dangerously low blood pressure (that could lead to stroke or to heart attack). Cialis should not be used by women, as it can do no good to a female patient.
Before you start to follow a treatment with Cialis, you should alert your personal doctor if you are suffering from any of the following medical disorders:

Blood clotting disorder
Cell problems (for example leukemia, sickle cell anemia)

If you are suffering from any of the medical disorders that have been listed here, you might not be allowed to start using this product, or you might have to be prescribed (administered) a lower dose of Cialis. You healthcare provider might also want to closely monitor your treatment with this medicine to see if this drug is adversely affecting your disorder in any harmful way.
Elderly patients (who are over 65) are usually more prone to experiencing the medicine?s regular side effects. Grapefruit can sometimes be harmful if it is combined with Cialis. You should alert your personal physician before starting a treatment with this medicine if you are currently following a diet that contains grapefruit or any other grapefruit-based products (such as grapefruit juice, grapefruit cakes, etc).
