    Is it possible to lose hair on Cialis?


    I was reading that Cialis causes a marked increase in testosterone & suppresses estrogen. Assuming this is true would it also stand to reason that hairloss could happen? I've never tried it but theoretically it seems shedding is possible along the same lines as any Test booster. Any ideas on the subject, please share.

    Where did you read this? Cialis does not do anything to one's libido. Increased testosterone = increased libido.

    Cialis is only an inhibitor of the PDE5 enzyme. I have bloodwork to prove that it has no effect on testosterone levels or other hormones.

    Are you sure your are not thinking of Clomid? They both start with a "C"....

    Clomid is a SERM though, and Cialis is an erection drug.

    I read this in a couple places...I'll cut-n-paste the text here. I cant post the link because the text was found on another muscle forum..

    "Testosterone Rises with Treatment for ED

    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Men who use Viagra or Cialis for erectile dysfunction (ED) have increases in levels of testosterone, Italian researchers report.

    "We are now demonstrating the sexual and hormonal effect of two popular oral treatments for ED," Dr. Emmanuele A. Jannini from University of L'Aquila told Reuters Health. "Both were efficacious and able to increase testosterone levels after 3 months of treatment."

    Jannini team studied 74 men with erectile dysfunction and found that free and total testosterone levels rose, overall, by about 50% after treatment.

    The testosterone increases were more marked in the group that took Cialis than in the Viagra group, although the drugs were equally effective in restoring sexual potency, the investigators report in the medical journal.

    The frequency of full sexual intercourse was also higher with Cialis (known chemically as tadalafil), despite the use of identical numbers of pills per month, the researchers note, "strongly suggesting that the greater normalization of hormonal values in tadalafil-treated patients was due to the higher number of sexual acts."

    The higher frequency of sex "can be considered as an important benefit of tadalafil and a cost-effective advantage" for couples, the investigators suggest.

    "For a man in a stable couple relationship, tadalafil is to be preferred," Jannini commented.

    In this setting, the drug can be taken twice a week to allow spontaneous sexual activity. "From a psycho-sexological point of view, this may help the patient to considered himself 'cured' and not simply 'treated' for the symptom," he concluded.

    A little more Icariin info, plus PDE5 inhibitor info- ENJOY!!

    of course all these studies dont add up to much in the real world if you have blood test showing no changes...

    Yeah bro you are right, but the raised test is really negligable in terms of hair loss. I use half dose cialis everyday (complications from chemotherapy meds as a kid) for the last few years. I have really thin hair and am prone to any DHT sides, but havent noticed any hairloss from Cialis.

    Honestly though, the raised test seems to come from cialis users having more sex than anything (which increases test).

    My 10 cents.

    5mg dose everyday was approved for constant blood levels. Full dose is 20mg.

    BTW, just having occasional sex on it's own will increase testosterone levels. Cialis helps sex occur yes, so it could increase testosterone in a roundabout way, indirectly and not significantly enough to increase levels of DHT dramatically. I would take that study with a grain of salt.
