What kind of discomfort are you having?

Cialis gives me a nasty headache the next day more then Viagra does.

Funny you should write . . .

I was just this morning talking about that very thing.

With that said, do you mean "Everyday Cialis," or "Cialis Everyday?" (I take 10mg everyday)

I experience severe leg pain (last night was very bad). However, it is very easy to control with 2 ibuprofen.

I think you have my number . . . give me a call!

Happy Holidays to you and everyone!

Cheers,
Rich

Yes, I was taking it prior to the prostate cancer issue. It would give me leg cramps in my right leg every so often but I was never taking it on a daily basis. I also had a Viagra prescription (my regular doctor was a big believer in drugs for ED) and so I would alternate between the two. My hypertension medication gave me the ED.

leg pain and back pain are very common side affects of even the low dose cialis. You might give it a rest for a week or so and come back to it.  I used to get really painful aches when I took it. Now, for some reason - I suppose my body just got used to it - I am pain free when I take it.
Don't give up.

Hi Mike, et al,
First Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and all the rest!

Cialis does have this set of side effects. Make sure you communicate this to the doctors along with any other medications you are taking.

Mike, I notice you are stable on the PSA...That is good stuff...

Always you friend!
