There is one thing almost everyone is concerned with when they are thinking of starting to take a certain medication. That one thing are the side effects that might occur when using said medication. Even when you are taking aspirin or something as mundane as that, you still check out the side effects given on the label and you consider whether there is something there that should worry you. In most cases, you do not experience any side effects.
People especially wish to know if their medications for non life-threatening conditions will cause any side effects. They are probably thinking that these medications are not vital and that if they are associated with some severe side effects, there is no need to take a chance. Therefore, a large percentage of men want to know ether Cialis can cause any side effects, how likely they are to happen and whether these side effects might seriously reduce the quality of their life. Here, you are going to learn about the side effects that may be caused by Cialis.
In most cases, Cialis will not cause any side effects. In about 905 of cases, the use of Cialis is not accompanied by any side effects. Most other prescription medications are in fact more likely to cause side effects. For instance, there are certain medications that DO cause side effects in 905 of cases, but these are usually some very powerful painkillers or sedatives. Anyway, back to Cialis.
As we said, in about 10%, certain side effects do occur. Fortunately, these side effects are mild and temporary, not expected to reduce the quality of your life to any significant extent.
For instance, the most common side effects with Cialis are
- back pains,
- upset stomach
- and headaches.
These side effects go away in time and it is most likely that you will stop experiencing them after repeated uses and after your body gets used to the drug. Still, if they become too strong or if they start seriously affecting your everyday life, you should speak to your doctor.
Other mild side effects of Cialis include
- runny nose
- and certain colour perception changes, such as bluish or greenish tinge to certain objects.
There are, however, certain side effects that cannot be considered mild and that will require immediate talks to your doctor in case you experience them. Luckily, the chances of you experiencing any of these are extremely slim. For instance, some of the listed serious side effects of Cialis have not even been conclusively linked to the use of Cialis and might not even have anything to do with it. Also, some of these side effects have occurred in just a dozen or even fewer users among hundreds of thousands. Still, we think that you have the right to know about them and you have to know about them, in case you do experience any of them. They include: pain which is spreading to your shoulder, shortness of breath, vision and hearing loss, swelling of the hands, feet and ankles, seizures, irregular heartbeat, chest pains, fainting and erections that last more than 4 hours and that are also painful. As we mentioned before, make sure you contact your doctor immediately if you should feel any of these.
