Cialis and men with heart disease

When you are diagnosed as having high blood pressure, this is one of the early symptoms suggesting a higher risk of heart disease. If you also have erectile dysfunction, it suggests the damage to your blood vessels may be quite advanced. The difficulty is the so-called potentiating effect. Cialis is one of the PDE5 inhibitors and, although it's designed to be reasonably specific to the penile artery, it does have a general effect on the arterial system and does, in its own right, lower your blood pressure. If you are also taking drugs to reduce your blood pressure, the combination in a small percentage of men can produce rapid and dangerous drops. This needs careful management to ensure you do not come to harm. So always tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are also taking ACE inhibitors, diuretics or betablockers.
This leads to a more general need to provide counseling to men who are diagnosed with symptoms, including erectile dysfunction, showing a high risk of heart disease. The quality of life is directly affected by whether sexual activity is possible. If men fail to achieve consistent levels of satisfaction, it's not uncommon to find depression follows. Many of the antidepressive medications do cause loss of libido and other sexual problems, so this becomes a vicious circle in which men's self-esteem and sense of self-worth are seriously damaged.
Cialis is an excellent drug whether taken as needed or once-daily. But men need to have a very clear understanding of how to get the best results. Only then can they remain positive. So they need guidance on reducing alcohol intake and, if they have not already done so, quitting smoking. Maintaining at least one hour after taking the as-needed version of Cialis is desirable. This waiting time should be extended to two hours if a meal with a high fat content has been eaten or significant alcohol has been consumed. There then needs to be discussion of what sexual stimulation to engage in and reinforcement of the need to try several difference positions and/or situations before giving up.
