5mg Cialis for daily use plus 25mg Viagra

Hello all,

I have venous leak in my penis. I am 38 years old and in otherwise excellent health. I've found that taking 5mg of Cialis daily does give me better erections but I still don't "lock out" and get rock hard like I do if I take 50mg of Viagra. I tried taking 25mg of Viagra with Cialis and the two worked perfectly together as if I had taken 50mg of Viagra.

I am wondering if anyone has a professional opinion about the risks involved in taking these two drugs together at low doses. My understanding is that ED meds all carry disclaimers that their drugs haven't been evaluated in combination with other ED meds so they don't recommend mixing them. To my mind though, these two drugs at these doses would basically combine to form either one 10mg Cialis or one 50mg Viagra. 10mg of Cialis has basically the same effect as 5mg on me, and while I can have full intercourse with Cialis, I lose my erection with my girlfriend on top of me unless I put a super tight erection ring around the base of my penis which is sometimes awkward. I don't lose my erection with Viagra, but there is no spontaneity and that's a problem for her. So my creative solution has been to decide to occasionally take 25mg of Viagra to keep our lovemaking fresh.

Additionally, I also have questions about long term use of either of these drugs. I'm 38 and while I've concluded that the only way for me to consistently maintain an erection is with ED meds, I am concerned about long term risk.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Dude - Never mix the 2 together, didn't you read the warnings on the instruction pdf you can ******** from the manufacturer.

If you have sex every day take the daily 5mg Cialis - It takes about a week to build up in your system.

If you have sex a few times a week take the 20Mg Cialis every 3 days - It lasts up to 36 hours (more like 48 for me).

If you only occasionally have sex take the 50Mg Viagra about 1 hour before you're ready to do the deed.

Never take the 2 together.

Re: 5mg Cialis for daily use plus 25mg Viagra

If you have been taking the Cialis 5 mg on a daily basis, your blood level should approximate that of a 20 mg Cialis tablet. The 25 mg Viagra is probably equivalent to another 5 mg of Cialis. Because combinations of ED drugs do not seem to have been studied formally, it is hard to say whether this is in fact dangerous. Here, the best advice is: "when in doubt, don't..."

What do you think is causing your ED at age 38? If there is an underlying physical cause (circulation problems, hypertension, low testosterone, other medications), you should be paying attention to this.

The "Cialis for daily use" may have more benefit to you in improving erectile functioning since it promotes oxygenation of the tissues and in mild ED may provide lasting benefit even after stopping the medication. I used the Cialis 2.5 mg (equivalent to the 10 mg tab) for two months with excellent results and have now stopped the medication to see what would happen. I'm now at four weeks, erections remained improved (not quite as good as with the medication), with hard morning erections every day, spontaneous hard erections in response to even moderate stimuli (with the medication, spontaneous erections were extremely frequent and very hard) and good erections for intercourse, though not as long lasting and not quite as hard as with the medication (I wonder if this is psychological???). Also, the feeling of fullness in the penis at times when not erect has gone.
