So far just a few nocturnal stiffys during night.

Thanks.

I would talk to your doctor about that
- the websites I found by googling the words - cialis and grapefruit - they warned about grapefruit increasing blood flow of certain medicines and the combo could actually be lethal - so buyer beware and check with doc ...I expect your question is regarding grapefruit juice rather than supplements or medicines that are grapefruit based.

ok, here is the scoop on grapefruit juice....
Due to the high citric acid content it has adverse reactions with most prescription medications mostly antibiotics...Most info out there will tell you to stay away from it completely.

However, as long as you leave at least a 1 hour window between grapefruit juice and medicatio you are fine! so one hour before or after grapefruit or grapefruit juice.
For those of us who tend to be a bit extreme in our responses to medications or interactions then allow more time or just avoid completely.

Hey thanks for the replies.

Natural44- interesting. I drink a ton of orange, and lemon juice. Just by luck, I've been taking the Cialis a few hours before I sip my first acidic drink.

PS- Is anybody having a problem with this thread appearing as one long line of text? (Not wraping properly)

Thanks.

Something is wrong with the word wrap. I think it happens when someone
uses an editor that is wider than normal.
 
I had to give up all citrus juices to help with incontinence.
One glass of OJ ruins the day and guarantees multiple pads.
