I haven't heard of a Cialis / Viagra combination. Is there a conflict between the two? Don't know myself. I'm currently - just started yesterday - the Cialis / MUSE combination three times a week. Too early to tell whether it'll work because I'm ust about
18 days after surgery.
I doubt MUSE will present discomfort or problems for me. The Urologist prescribed some lidocaine ointment to use with it and though there was a very small tingling/burn when the pellet was inserted that disappeared quickly. It's too early, also, to tell if I'll suffer any side effects from either the Cialis or MUSE.
Personally, I would be reluctant to increase my dosage of medication unless my Urologist had first approved it.
