Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 48 years old married, male living with wife and one school-going child. My height is 5'64" and weighs almost 176.37 Ibs. My main problem is that I am not able to sustain my erection or suffering from erection difficulties for a long time. I can sustain it only when I take Tadalafil type of tablets before. But, at present, I am having high BP and taking Amlopres AT tablet daily in the morning and after this medication, my BP level is 130/80 on average. Besides, I am having high TSH 6.98 when measured one month back and taking medication (Thyrox). Otherwise, I am also having enlarged prostate but till date, no major complications have arisen. Though the doctor has prescribed Tamsulosin type of medicine, I have not started yet. Also suffering a bit anxiety, however, I am not taking any other medicine except those mentioned above. Can I take Tadalafil after having such problems mentioned above to overcome the erection difficulties? Will it clash with the medicines I am taking already?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, you can take Tadalafil or Sildenafil tablets for erection. It may bring blood pressure slightly less. Otherwise, it is safe. If TSH level is slightly high, how is the sugar level? Also, learn to relax as anxiety also causes erectile dysfunction.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Thanks for your prompt prescription. Sugar level is normal. What is your prescription for the safe use of Tadalafil?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Take it on the need basis only when you require it.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
