Take “One” Cialis And Call Me In The Morning-A New Treatment For Both Erectile Dysfunction and The Enlarged Prostate Gland

This past week the FDA has approved the use of Cialis, a drug commonly used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, will also be approved for the management of benign enlargement of the prostate gland. Cialis, manufactured by Eli Lilly and Co., was approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) in 2003. It can now be used to treat ED AND prostate gland enlargement, or both if symptoms of the two conditions occur together.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a condition in which the prostate gland becomes enlarged, is common in older men. Symptoms include difficulty starting urination, a weak urine stream, a sudden urge to urinate and more frequent urination including awakening at night to empty the bladder. BPH can have a big impact on a patient’s quality of life if a man gets up more than a couple of times each night. Cialis offers these men another treatment option, particularly those who also have ED, which is also common in older men affecting nearly 33 million men in the United States.

In two clinical trials, men with BPH who took 5 milligrams of Cialis once daily experienced a significant improvement in their urinary symptoms of BPH compared to men who were treated with placebo.
Cialis should not be used in patients taking nitrates, for example nitroglycerin, because the combination can cause an unsafe decrease in blood pressure, the FDA said. And the use of Cialis in combination with alpha blockers for the treatment of BPH as there is a risk of lowering blood pressure.

Bottom Line: If you are experiencing both difficulty with urination and also have inability to successfully engage in sexual intimacy as often as you would like, you should speak to your doctor about the use of daily Cialis, 5mg, which is effective in treating both conditions with a single pill.
