Which lifestyle factors can affect Erectile Dysfunction?

By considering your lifestyle and making simple changes you may be able to have a positive impact on erectile dysfunction. Healthy habits can help to enhance life in lots of ways, so it is worthwhile looking at what positive changes can be made.
Lifestyle factors to consider are: –
Having a healthy body mass index i.e. lose weight if you are overweight to a healthy weight for your height. Your Pharmacist will be able to advise you on how to lose weight in a healthy way.
Stop smoking. Your Pharmacist will be able to give you advice on how to reduce or stop smoking, and what smoking cessation products will be most useful to you.
Eat a healthy balanced diet i.e. a wide range of food in the right proportions. Ensuring to eat five fruits and vegetables every day, eating enough fibre, drinking plenty of fluids and keeping any sugar, fat, and salt to a minimum. Your Pharmacist will be able to advise on how to integrate a healthy diet into your lifestyle.
Exercise daily.
Reducing stress and anxiety. It is important to reduce stress and anxiety in a healthy way. Using alcohol or smoking to reduce stress is an unhealthy habit and will make erectile dysfunction problems worse. Keeping active and exercising is a good, healthy stress reliever. Exercise can help to clear the mind so that any problems can be dealt with in a calmer manner.
Do not drink more than 14 units of alcohol a week.
If you are a cyclist do not cycle for more than 3 hours a week or have a trial period without cycling and see if there is an improvement of the erectile dysfunction.

 

Medication to help with Erectile dysfunction.

Cialis is a popular and effective medication used to treat erectile dysfunction. Tadalafil is the generic name of the drug that is found in Cialis.
Cialis is part of the same family of medication as Viagra. This group of medication are called Phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors, or PDE-5 inhibitors for short.

How do PDE-5 inhibitors like Cialis work in the body?

All phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors work by increasing the blood flow to the penis during sexual stimulation. The increase in blood flow is what makes an erection possible.
The mechanism by which this occurs is through the action of PDE-5 inhibition. This prevents the breakdown of cGMP in the cavernosal tissue in the penis and so there is an increase in the level of cGMP in the tissue. Increasing cGMP causes the smooth muscle to relax and therefore there is increased arterial blood flow. The increase in blood flow will occur during sexual stimulation. Increase in blood flow to the penis allows a penile erection to occur through compression of the subtunical venous plexus. Men who suffer from erectile dysfunction will experience improved erectile function.
Men who take Cialis should note that Cialis will not work unless there is sexual stimulation.

 

Is Cialis suitable for me?

It is important to find out if Cialis is the right medication for you to take for your condition. A consultation with a Doctor will assess if Cialis is suitable.
A Doctor will take into consideration any other symptoms there may be as well as the erectile dysfunction. If further investigation is required your Doctor will advise on this. This may involve referral to urology, endocrinology, or cardiology.

 

Who cannot take Cialis?

There are certain conditions where it is not suitable for a man to take Cialis.
These contraindicated conditions include a history of non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy, hypotension when systolic blood pressure is less than 90 mmHg, mild to severe heart failure, myocardial infarction, recent stroke, patients in whom sexual activity or vasodilatation is not advised, uncontrolled hypertension and arrhythmias, unstable angina.
Cialis should not be taken with certain prescription medication. A Doctor will check if Cialis is suitable to be taken with any concurrent medication.

How do I take Cialis?

Cialis is an oral tablet, taken by swallowing the tablet with a drink of water. Cialis can be taken with or without food. The rate and extent of absorption of the medication are not affected by food.
For men with erectile dysfunction who anticipate sexual activity at least twice a week, the recommended dose is a 5mg tablet to be taken once a day. A 2.5mg strength tablet is also available. The dose of 2.5mg or 5mg can be adjusted according to response.
For less frequent sexual activity a 10mg tablet is available. The 10mg tablet is taken 30 minutes before sexual activity, if required the dose may be adjusted to 20mg. After taking a 10mg or 20mg Cialis tablet the effect of the medication may last up to 36 hours.
The 10mg or 20mg strength Cialis tablet is not to be taken every day. Men who anticipate sexual activity at least twice a week would be recommended to use the 2.5mg – 5mg daily dose.

 

Can I drink alcohol with Cialis tablets?

It is fine to drink alcohol in moderation. However, excess alcohol should be avoided when taking Cialis tablets. Alcohol can cause problems with the ability to get and maintain an erection. Alcohol can also cause a temporary reduction in blood pressure. This reduction in blood pressure may increase the risk of dizziness when standing.

Does Cialis have side effects?

Cialis does have some unwanted side-effects associated with its use, as does all medication. Side-effects are not experienced by everyone who takes Cialis. The patient information leaflet that is provided with the medication will explain about possible side-effects, along with the likelihood that these occur.
The most common side-effects that may occur after taking Cialis include a headache, back pain, muscle aches, pain in arms and legs, facial flushing, nasal congestion, and dyspepsia.
Any problems after taking Cialis should be discussed with a Doctor or Pharmacist.
