Taking Cialis

You are supposed to take Cialis with a meal when you need it. However, you can also take it without a meal – but always make sure you drink a whole glass of water to make sure the medicine reaches your stomach and only then starts dissolving in it. There is also Cialis that can be taken daily – so it’s always best to talk to your health care provider and learn more about how you are supposed to be taking this medicine. Since this drug is in most cases intended for as-needed plan of treatment you are not supposed to do anything. You are never supposed to use more of Cialis than prescribed, as this is unlikely to make your treatment more efficient.

An overdose of this medicine is supposed to be reported to your local emergency center as soon as possible. The following are most probably symptoms of Cialis overdose: fainting, nausea, feeling light-headed, chest pain, and irregular heartbeat. Make sure you wait at least 24 hours to pass between two doses of Cialis and report to you health care provider if you experience an erection for longer than 4 hours. If that erection is also painful – it may mean you are having priapism – a serious reaction to Cialis; people prone to this serious side effect that may lead to permanent damage to the tissues of the penis. Drinking alcohol can only increase the side effects of Cialis you are likely to experience, so make sure you avoid drinking it when using this medicine. There are some interactions that have been reported with Cialis and you need to take into consideration.

You will need to exclude grapefruit juice from your diet. Grapefruit juice is one of few citric fruit that can interfere with Cialis by stopping the enzymes in your body responsible for processing this medicine and therefore leading to side effects or higher/lower levels of Cialis in the blood. Interactions with grapefruit juice have been reported within up to 3 days from the moment you drank it. It’s therefore very important that you discuss your treatment with your health care provider and make sure you mention any products that you consume regularly to prevent them from interfering with Cialis effects. Never share your dosage of Cialis with other people to whom it was not prescribed. This may lead to serious reactions in them, as you may not be aware of their contraindications. Store Cialis in some place where other people will be unable to gain access to it, especially children. If you develop an allergic reaction, and think it may have to do with your taking Cialis – let your doctor know about it as soon as possible or seek help in your local emergency center. The following symptoms are possible if you decided to buy Cialis and take it in spite of the fact you are allergic to it: hives, trouble breathing and swallowing, rash and swelling of your face and limbs.
