Dr. E’s Health Update: A Low Dose Approach to Treating ED  
No, erectile dysfunction does not “happen to all men.” And it doesn’t have to happen to you.

Hi friends, 

Dr. E here, with another health update for men who experience erectile dysfunction (ED), either occasionally or on a regular basis. Hearing, “It happens to all men” is never soothing when it is happening to you. The good news is that taking a daily 5 mg dose of tadalafil (trade name Cialis®) is a treatment option for men experiencing erectile dysfunction (ED). This daily dosing strategy differs from the on-demand use of higher doses of tadalafil. 

Some of the benefits for men taking 5 mg tadalafil daily include:

Improved Sexual Function:
Daily use of tadalafil can help men achieve and maintain an erection, allowing for improved sexual function and the ability to engage in sexual activity without the need for timing doses.
Consistent Efficacy:
By taking a lower dose of tadalafil daily, men may experience more consistent erectile function, as the medication remains in their system throughout the day.
Unlike on-demand dosing, daily tadalafil can provide increased spontaneity in sexual activity, as the medication is continuously present in the body, eliminating the need to plan for sexual encounters around medication timing.
Treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH):
In addition to treating ED, daily tadalafil can also help manage symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia, a condition that causes enlargement of the prostate gland, leading to difficulties with urination.
Lower Side Effects:
The lower daily dose of tadalafil may be associated with fewer side effects compared to the higher, on-demand doses, making it a more tolerable option for some men.
Improved Quality of Life:
Successful management of ED and BPH symptoms can lead to an improved quality of life for men, enhancing their sexual relationships and overall well-being.

However, it is important to note that tadalafil, like any medication, may also have potential side effects and interactions. Common side effects can include headache, indigestion, muscle aches, and back pain. It’s crucial to consult with a healthcare provider before starting daily tadalafil to ensure it is a safe and appropriate treatment for erectile dysfunction, especially for individuals with underlying health conditions, as certain medications and medical conditions may interact with tadalafil. Always follow the guidance and dosage instructions provided by your healthcare provider.
