Hi all.  I've started taking daily tadalafil a couple days ago.  This is the third time I've tried and every time I get lower back pain, so ended up stopping.

For anyone else that gets this, is it just temporary?  Should I carry on and grit my teeth for a week or two, or if you do get this side effect does it tend to be remain until you stop?

When I first started using Cialis I also had back pain that eventually went away with continued use. Everyone is different. Maybe try a lower dosage and see if that helps.

Thanks.  Maybe I'll cut them in half for a couple of weeks, then gradually increase.

I cut them in half for 2.5 mg dose and no longer have any back pain, hopefully if it was doing any good at 5 mg, it will also help at 2.5 mg.
62YO, hourglass indent/hinging at base 30deg bend up 3cmx2cm hard plaque at dorsal base. No Erectile Dysfunction. 3 rounds Xiaflex decreased plaque/indent/hinge/bend. 1 year later, penis went from 7.5 to 5.5 in, but only 15 degree bend and no hinging.
