What should I know about storage and disposal of Cialis?

Keep Cialis in the container it came in, tightly closed, and out of reach of children. Store it at room temperature and away from excess heat and moisture (not in the bathroom).

Unneeded medications should be disposed of in special ways to ensure that pets, children, and other people cannot consume them. However, you should not flush this medication down the toilet. Instead, the best way to dispose of your medication is through a medicine take-back program. Talk to your pharmacist or contact your local garbage/recycling department to learn about take-back programs in your community. See the FDA’s Safe Disposal of Medicines website (http://goo.gl/c4Rm4p) for more information if you do not have access to a take-back program.

It is important to keep all medication out of sight and reach of children as many containers (such as weekly pill minders and those for eye drops, creams, patches, and inhalers) are not child-resistant and young children can open them easily. To protect young children from poisoning, always lock safety caps and immediately place the medication in a safe location – one that is up and away and out of their sight and reach. http://www.upandaway.org

If this worries you, talk to your doctor or pharmacist about other options

Risk of heart attack or stroke

  • Risk factors: Existing heart condition | Recent heart attack or stroke in past 6 months | High or low blood pressure

It’s not recommended for men to take Cialis (tadalafil) if they’ve had a heart attack, stroke, or symptoms of heart failure in the past 6 months, abnormal blood pressure, or if they have chest pain. The safety of Cialis (tadalafil) has not been studied in these situations. Talk to your doctor if you have any of these health conditions.

Low blood pressure

  • Risk factors: Taking alpha blockers | Taking medications for high blood pressure or chest pain (angina) | Drinking alcohol

If you’re taking alpha blockers or medications for high blood pressure with Cialis (tadalafil), your blood pressure may drop too low. Make sure to check your blood pressure regularly if you’re taking these other medications. Be very careful getting up from a sitting or lying down position since this can make you feel dizzy and more likely to fall. Drinking alcohol can also cause low blood pressure. Avoid or lower your alcohol consumption when taking Cialis (tadalafil). You should never take Cialis (tadalafil) when taking nitrate medication for chest pain (angina) because it can cause your blood pressure to suddenly drop to unsafe levels.

Prolonged erection

  • Risk factors: Peyronie’s disease | Cavernosal fibrosis | Sickle cell anemia

There have been reports of men having an erection lasting more than 4 hours while on Cialis (tadalafil). This is rare but if it’s not treated in time, it can cause permanent damage to your penis, including permanent impotence. Get medical help immediately if this happens.

Vision changes

If you suddenly notice changes in your vision in one or both eyes, go to the emergency room or call your doctor immediately. Although this is rare, Cialis (tadalafil) can cause permanent eye damage.

Hearing loss

There have been reports of men having permanent hearing loss while taking Cialis (tadalafil). This may happen along with ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and dizziness. Go to the emergency room or call your doctor immediately if you notice changes in your hearing in one or both ears.

Interactions with other medications

  • Risk factors: Age 65 years or older | Liver disease | Kidney disease | Taking medications such as nitrates, anti-hypertensives, alpha blockers, ketoconazole, or ritonavir

You may experience more side effects while taking Cialis (tadalafil) if you are also taking medications called nitrates for chest pain, blood pressure medications, certain medications for HIV, are elderly, or have liver or kidney disease. Talk to your doctor before starting Cialis (tadalafil) if any of these apply to you.
