Can You Take Cialis If You Take Ramipril

Answer

courters,

Thanks for your question. Cialis is a popular medication used in the treatment of ED (erectile dysfunction) and works by dilating blood vessels, especially in the pelvis.

All ED medication should not be used in patients taking nitrates which are also potent vessel dilators, as well as alpha blocker medications.

Though it is considered safe to use Cialis with ramipril (an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor), be aware that there still could be an additive effect in lowering your pressure.

You should discuss this with your physician prescribing the medications. In addition to the medication issue, also discuss your general health and whether sexual activity is safe in your situation.

Best wishes.
