Cialis side effects

When you buy Cialis, you need to be aware of the possibility of side effects. Serious side effects of Cialis are rare, as this medicine is well tolerated. However, they are also possible and can include any of the following reactions: sweating, pain spreading to the arm, shortness of breath, nausea, feeling light-headed, vision changes, general ill feeling, sudden vision loss, irregular heartbeat, swelling in your hands, ankles, or feet, sudden hearing loss, chest pain, and convulsions.

In very rare cases Cialis can cause sudden decrease or loss of vision in one or both eyes. This kind of reaction is considered to be very serious and you will need to report it to your health care provider as soon as possible. You need to be aware of this possibility, especially if there are some risk factors that you have, such as being older than 50, having a history of high blood pressure, heart disease, high cholesterol or diabetes. Although it’s not clear whether this kind of reaction is caused by simply taking Cialis or this is one of factors adding to the risk, it’s recommended to talk to your health care provider if you think sudden vision loss is a possibility in your case.

Priapism is another possible side effect that is rather serious and needs to be reported straight to your health care provider to make sure it doesn’t get worse with time. Priapism can be described as a prolonged erection that wouldn’t go away and becomes more painful over time. It lasts for longer than 4 hours and to prevent damage of the penis tissues you will need to seek emergency help. Mild side effects are quite common and can include back pain, memory problems, headache, diarrhea, redness in your face, neck, or chest, stuffy nose, upset stomach, sore throat, and muscle pain. There is no need for you to tell your health care provider about the mild side effects you experience unless they interfere with your everyday life activities and start to get very bothersome.

Side effects can be quite different for different people and their intensity is impossible to predict. To make sure you will always benefit from your treatment you will need to monitor your side effects to see if any of them need to be reported. Older people are more likely to get side effects, as they can be more sensitive to Cialis. This is why it’s so important that older patients are prescribed lower dose of Cialis.
