Cialis for Treatment of Urinary Problems

Cialis is a medication commonly used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men.  It has also been shown to help with symptoms of enlarged prostate (BPH) in men with mild-to-moderate symptoms.

shutterstock_61928983Cialis 5 mg daily is certainly a beneficial medication for men with mild to moderate symptoms of BPH.  Cialis 5 mg can be taken every morning or every evening.  Studies show that Cialis does not affect the dynamics of urine flow but appears to affect sensation.  The exact mechanism of its effect on the urinary tract is not well understood.  Unlike medications such as Proscar and Avodart, Cialis does not shrink the prostate and does not decrease the rate of growth of the prostate gland. 

Over time, most men taking Cialis for BPH will experience worsening of urinary symptoms at which point other medications or minimally invasive surgical treatment options will need to be considered.

Men who have mild symptoms are usually very satisfied with Cialis daily as it also helps with getting and keeping erections.  Some men experience side effects of Cialis daily.  For them, other options for treatment of BPH include Urolift and Flomax.

For men with mild to moderate symptoms of enlarged prostate and ED (erectile dysfunction), Cialis is an attractive option of one pill addressing two problems.

What If Cialis 5 mg Daily Does Not Help Well with Symptoms of Enlarged Prostate?

For men with moderate to severe symptoms of BPH, medications such as Flomax, Rapaflo, Avodart, and Proscar are more appropriate as they are more effective.  Other effective options for the treatment of enlarged prostate symptoms without causing sexual side effects are Urolift for BPH and REZUM procedure.  Read Urolift reviews and testimonials.  For men with large prostate especially with a large median lobe of the prostate or with urinary retention due to enlarged prostate, prostate enucleation offers a very effective treatment option.
