10mg daily cialis
« on: April 28, 2020, 08:39:57 PM »

Is 10mg of cialis a day a good dose? Maybe too much? I'll be combining it with L-citrulline and pentox as well. Other than that I'm on TRT and will try abstaining too. Not sure any of this is gonna help my penile issues, but I think it can't hurt.

Generally 2.5 or 5 mg daily is sufficient for daily improving erections when needed, but If still erection issues try 10mg.  If it’s only to help remodel plaque to healthy tissue The lower doses should be fine.  If your Erectile Dysfunction cannot be treated have you considered an implant?

I can still get erect. My problem is that my penis is still inflammed and gets more deformed/shrunken over time for years now. I hope the cialis can help me get out of active phase. Seems like I've beem worsening forever. Don't think there's many guys with the same kind of progression as me. Guess I have a pretty agressive case. Only spoke to a few guys that progress like me so far.

10mg isnt the daily dose.  its 5mg ... has a 17 hour 1/2 life in the body, so it builds to a level that works on a daily basis, probably equivalent to about 7.5 mg or so at any one time.  10mg would double that, unnecessary  side effects and also you dont want to build a tolerance to the higher dose, because where are you going from there if you need to increase ...

Yes, 2.5-5ng is the daily dose.  If that is still inadequate for an erection an MD would likely increase the dose.  Prob no signif side effects as one can take 20mg.  Also, there’s no evidence one builds a tolerance to pde5i...what’s more likely that w time ones Erectile Dysfunction worsens.

I'm sorry but this is bad advice. For something with a half-life of 17 hours, 10mg daily can give a lot more side effects than 20mg occasionally. It's toxicology 101.

In the past I've taken 10mg daily for several months with no side effects.

However, 10mg a day is generally considered high for a daily dose. 5mg and less is considered standard in the UK. Pentox and L-Citruline will increase the effects of the Cialis, however your body will start to down regulate the L-Citruline after a short time due balancing out the amount of Nitrous Oxide in your system.

Can you elaborate on the downregulation of the citrulline?

My understanding is that the body normally makes it's own l-argine from normal food intake, which it then converts to nitrous oxide for use in regulation of the vascular system.

If the body is ingesting large amounts of l-argine over a prolonged period then it stops making it's own, I assume as a preventative measure against too much nitrous oxide.

I experienced this over the course of approx I month of taking 3g l-arginine a day. Initially there were benefits but then it trailed off and I noticed no difference.

What you are saying now is correct. What you were saying before isn't. And that's exactly why it's best to take citrulline than arginine.

I take l-citrulline too instead of arginine. I thought l-carnitine gets turned into argigine inside the body way more effectively than arginine is absorbed by the body. I could be wrong though. So far it hasn't fixed me at all, but I guess it cant hurt so I'll keep taking it.
