Hi doctor,

I am 37 years old with a weight of 104 kilograms. I have erectile dysfunction and tried using Sildenafil 50 mg. Previously, I did not had any issues but nowadays, I have headaches with lower jaw pulling sense. Please suggest.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. Sildenafil is a rapid-acting drug with a shorter duration of action. Due to Sildenafil, some patients can develop hypotension with headaches. This can be a cause in your case. To prevent having this, try to drink plenty of water before taking this tablet. This helps to prevent having a fall in blood pressure. The other option is to replace it with Tadalafil. It is a long-acting one and it less likely causes side effects.

Thank you doctor,

Please mention the dosage of Tadalafil.

10 mg dose is helpful in maintaining a good erection. Tantex forte has good efficiency. But it should be taken regularly for three months.

Thank you doctor,

I am going to start taking Tadalafil 10 mg.
