I know what the label says and I just started taking Cialis daily. I like a beer or two after work when I get home but if this is gonna do me harm I will have to switch to Gatorade or something. What about the occasional weekened out where you might consume 5 or 6 ??? Thanks, Jeff

I found if I have a beer in me Cialis and Viagra become far less effective.  A couple beers and forget it.

For what it's worth, my ED doc said avoid alcohol with Viagra, but you can have a glass with Trimix.

The problem with cialis and alcohol is they have common side effects which worsen when combined. Since both taken by themselves can lead to headache and heartburn, the two combined will increase the possibility of indigestion and headache. For years I've used alcohol to increase the sexual activity time before I achieve orgasm. As I got older I added levitra to the mix because the numbing action of alcohol made it harder for me to get it up. I found if I kept the liquor down to four or five martinis with a low 5mg dose of levitra, I could last 1-1.5 hours. I still remember some of those special evenings with my wife. Just keep in mind the common side effects of each drug and keep the booze below the limits in the link provided.

Hope this helps:

Hey, thanks..... I had surgery back on December 1 and only used Cialis a couple times and never Viagra. I decided to use the Cialis every day and have been for about 3 weeks or so and it's been working. The only side effect this go around is the indigestion and that's getting better. I have'nt had any negative issues with the Cialis and sex after a few beers but was just curious what others thought. Thanks, Jeff

Age 53
Psa 5.4
14 samples 12 malignant
Robotic prostate removal
Cauterized one side prior to removal because it looked as though it had spread outside.
Almost 2 years psa <.01 (thank god)
Still a little leakage.
On cialis 5mg a day after surgery
Stopped the daily dose my junk does what it wants when it wants.still get orgasm sensation but not hard enough to penetrate a woman.
Tries 15mg and 20 mg before trying, no difference only 3/4 hard. However i have noticed 2 to 3 days after taking it and working on it myself hard as a rock.
Has anyone else had this issue? Should i take the same dose 2 days before going for it? Worth a try i guess.
Just wondering if anyone experienced this also.
