Cialis Effects

Cialis is an erectile dysfunction drug meant to treat erectile dysfunction drug. But Did You Know- Cialis stays effective in the body for 36 hours and in some men starts working as fast as even 30 minutes of its intake. Cialis does not cure erectile dysfunction; it just treats your condition of erectile dysfunction so that you can get timely erections at the time you want them the most, during sex. More than 50% of men over the age of 40 have some or the other degree of erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction can be treated with oral medications like Cialis. Cialis is a PDE5 inhibitor drug that inhibits the chemical PDE5 responsible for the flaccidness of penis and thus prolonging the action of the chemical, cyclic guanosine monophosphate resulting in strong and rigid penile erections. Cialis stays effective for 36 hours in the body and you get the erection when you are sexually stimulated.

Cialis does not force you to get erections within a stipulated time, instead it gives you the spontaneity in sex. Let us study some of the effects of Cialis as studied in the clinical studies:

Effect on exercise stress testing: In the study undertaken to study Cialis’s effect on the subjects after they have exercised, it was found that some subjects who received Cialis (tadalafil) followed by nitroglycerin in the post exercise period had clinically significant reductions in the blood pressure with the augmentation by Cialis of the blood pressure lowering effects of the nitrates.

Effect on vision: Single oral doses of PDE5 inhibitor like Cialis have showed dose related transient impairment in color discrimination between blue and green colors; but this change in the color vision was seen in less than 0.1%, which means that changes in color vision is quite a rare phenomena among men taking Cialis.

Effect on Sperm Characteristics: There were no clinically relevant effects on sperm concentration, sperm count, motility, or morphology in humans in placebo-controlled studies of daily doses of tadalafil of 10 mg on 204 subjects or 20 mg on 217 subjects for 6 months. In addition, tadalafil had no effect on serum levels of testosterone.

Effect on ED Patients with Diabetes Mellitus: In the clinical studies it was found that Cialis was effective in treating the patients of erectile dysfunction or ED caused due to diabetes mellitus. In both type1 and type2 diabetes Cialis has shown a marked improvement in the condition of erectile dysfunction. FDA Alert on Erectile Dysfunction Induced Vision Loss According to the FDA report it has been found that in rare cases a small number of men have lost their eyesight in one eye some time after taking Cialis and similar other erectile dyunction drugs. This type of vision loss is called non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic naturopathy (NAION). NAION causes a sudden loss of eyesight because blood flow is blocked to the optic nerve. It is not yet clear whether Cialis causes vision loss or not because NAION has been seen causing to even such people who do not take PDE5 inhibitor drugs like Cialis.

People who have a higher chance for NAION include those who: Have heart disease Are over 50 years old Have diabetes Have high blood pressure Have high cholesterol Smoke Have certain eye problems
