I am getting head and back aches from 5mg ed of cialis. I know this is a common side.
Going on the 5th day of use. I was wondering if yall had similar experience and if eventually the sides will go away.
I am really enjoying the other benifits, such as lower bp, prostate health, gyms pumps, e2 control, and of course sexual performance.
I just dont want to have to keep popping tylenols.

It depends. Some people the sides go away or they get used to them and some don’t. Just gotta play it out

Are u sure you are getting enough water? It’s a pump agent and needs extra water imo. If you are, then try taking a couple of days off a week for a couple of weeks and then change to one day off etc..

E2 control from Cialis?
A 2005 study found that 10 mg. and 20 mg. doses of Cialis, taken an average of 10 times a month, significantly reduced estradiol levels, but only in men who didn't have too much body fat (those with a BMI of less than 27) (1). Men with more body fat have higher levels of aromatase and convert testosterone to estradiol with impunity, regardless of how much Cialis they pop.

Ive only had the headaches .. pretty bad on cialis at 5 i am perfectly fine.

can you break the tabs and try 2.5mg maybe to see ? Although you are enjoying the benefits might not need the full 5mg.

For me sides lasted maybe 24-48hrs .. you are doing it daily i assume ?

maybe try time of the day ? early morning or right before bed time .. with or without food

try all the methods and hopefully find one that eliminates the sides.

yes, I am taking it daily, pwo, with a protien shake. around 5:30 pm. It seems like the sides may be getting a little better. I've only had to take tylenol once this morning so far.

I have 20mg tabs that i am breaking apart into 1/4's the best i can.

Have you tried taking it every other day? It worked better for me, 15mg every other day with a meal and apple cider vinegar.

This is interesting… for a year or so I’ve been using Cialis at 5mg every morning. I would get headaches that almost seemed sinus related. I know Viagra causes a stuffy nose but didn’t think Cialis did that.

yeah, i can't do viagra , the stuffy nose thing is too much for me.

SO far the eod dosing is seeming to work better. I am also drinking more water, I skipped my wednesday dose, and dosed thursday pwo without any sides

im the other way around .. i cant handle cialis but viagra can chow down like candies.

but 5mg EOD is perfect .. glad you figured it out and works.

Water is such a great supplement that we dont think about it much.

I have been taking 5mg daily for a few years to combat BPH, the side effects all went away with in about a month.

That’s awesome! I have been taking it about a week now. I have already noticed my prostate feels better. The sides are getting better too.

That’s the main reason I take it. Stims and TRT can be painful at times.

It seems unfortunate that a study looking to garner any kind of status would use BMI as a measurement of bodyfat... I was 20lbs obese when I cut down to 6%. at this point in my life, I hope to never be within a "healthy" bmi.

Another side effect can be heartburn/gerd. It can be rather nasty.

Not with/for me.
Apple cider vinegar in capsules completely eliminated this problem for me.
And according to what I read at the time, tadalafil takes about 3 hours to peak.

So related question on dose.. Urologist recently gave me 5mg ED script... This seems to be typical from what I am reading here.

Now funny thing is I have a bunch of 20mg tabs, which I use periodically.. I guess I am lucky as I don't get sides.. I was actually thinking of asking doc to up it to 10mg ED, but then again.... This is because I'm used to using it on a "weekend bender" with a woman not really as a daily RX.

So maybe I should try 5mg daily and see how that goes just to improve overall bloodflow? But I feel ye'ol baseball bat works better with 15mg-20mg when ya wanna ram the old lady good lol. And I suck at vitamin regimens so I am sporadic with it still.

Back to the topic, side effects for extended higher dose 10-20mg ED dosing?

All the medical protocols for ED I've read out there are 5mg daily (2.5 mg for over 60s) or 20 mg once in a while (as needed). I stay on 15 mg every other day for everything.

I've been using it for over 6 months and the only side effect I've had is acid reflux and heartburn, which I solved with apple cider vinegar, as I wrote above. And I had back pain 2 times in that time.

The headaches and stuffiness went away in about a month for me but the back pumps can be crippling sometimes but it’s when I haven’t got enough fluids in.

I would give it a try certainly. But doesn't chugging apple cider vinegar everyday come with its own set of issues?
I used to drink a shot everyday, never had any problems ??

No, especially if dilluted - that avoids acidity on tooth enamel concerns.

Well since I don't have gyno (anymore) perhaps you just like my nips :p I'll post a more recent Avatar soon because clearly this is giving the wrong impression.. I thought my post Tren Ace rebound gyno was 💯 gone here, but if you're still seeing it and that incident was ~2018 pic here from summer 2020'ish.

Do me a favor just got my workout-cycles log for constructive criticism, not a random Cialis thread.
