How CIALIS for daily use (5 mg) may treat the signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)

The same CIALIS for daily use (5 mg) that is taken for erectile dysfunction (ED) is the only ED tablet approved to treat ED and the symptoms of BPH, like needing to go frequently or urgently. When taken every day as directed by your healthcare provider, CIALIS for daily use (5 mg) may help improve the symptoms of BPH. The recommended starting dose of CIALIS for daily use for the treatment of ED is 2.5 mg.

The science of how CIALIS treats ED may explain how it also treats the symptoms of BPH. In more technical terms, CIALIS belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. PDE5 is an enzyme found in many tissues in the body; it helps prevent blood vessels from relaxing and filling up with blood. Blood flow to the penis is necessary to get and keep an erection.

CIALIS blocks PDE5 and causes smooth muscle and blood vessels in the penis to relax. This relaxation leads to increased blood flow. And increased blood flow to the penis is necessary for getting and maintaining an erection.

PDE5 enzymes are also found in the prostate and bladder. CIALIS inhibits PDE5 in these tissues as well, but the mechanism of how CIALIS reduces BPH symptoms is not completely understood.

Tell your healthcare provider if you take medicines called alpha-blockers

As a treatment for BPH, CIALIS is not recommended in combination with alpha-blockers. These include Hytrin® (terazosin HCl), Flomax® (tamsulosin HCl), Cardura® (doxazosin mesylate), Minipress® (prazosin HCl), Uroxatral® (alfuzosin HCl), Jalyn® (dutasteride and tamsulosin HCl), and Rapaflo® (silodosin). Alpha-blockers are sometimes prescribed for prostate problems or high blood pressure. If CIALIS is taken with certain alpha-blockers, your blood pressure could suddenly drop. You could get dizzy or faint.
