Cialis (Tadalafil) for ED - CH interaction
Feb 10th, 2019 at 5:46pm
 
Hello all, was just wondering if anyone had any experience of taking low dose Cialis (Tadalafil) for Erectile Disfunction when out of a cycle and whether it could cause one?

I read an article saying that doctors are advised to prescribe Tadalafil (Cialis) instead of Viagra in the treatment of ED in CH sufferers.

I know it's a Vasodialtor but i have no real problems with alcohol use when out of a cycle so could a low dose of this drug be any different every once in a while when needed?

Sildenafil can induce the onset of a cluster headache bout.
Lin GY1, Lee JT1, Peng GS1, Yang FC1.

Abstract
About 25% of patients who are prescribed sildenafil, the phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5) inhibitor, for erectile dysfunction (ED) experience headaches. These migraine effects are well-described, including cluster headaches. We report the case of a man who experienced a cluster headache attack following each of 2 sildenafil doses. His symptoms were resolved by adding naproxen to his treatment regimen and changing his ED treatment from 50 mg of sildenafil to 5 mg of vardenafil. To our knowledge, no study has reported cluster headaches triggered by the less commonly used PDE-5 inhibitors, namely vardenafil and tadalafil. Urologists should be cautious in prescribing sildenafil to patients with ED and with a history of cluster headaches. In these patients, they should consider prescribing low-dose vardenafil or tadalafil instead. Failure to recognize sildenafil risks could result in unnecessary headache bouts in patients with a history of cluster headaches.


Your doctor probably based their decision on this research.

Our good mate Hoppy recently quoted this same piece of research on another thread along with the comment:

"Maybe these were the culprit for the beast returning after a 6yr break!"

This monster sure knows how to take away everything we love so much.
