Cialis Or Viagra No Longer Effective?

My husband has had a lifelong problem with erectile dysfunction and is unable to ejaculate. He was prescribed Cialis soon after we were married so that he could maintain an erection long enough for us to have sex.

However, in the last few months the Cialis has been less and less effective, and now it doesn't seem to work at all. Does anyone know if it is possible for his body to become accustomed to the drug to the point that it is no longer effective? Would an alternative drug help?

Answer

All of the drugs used to treat erectile dysfunction come in different dosages, so it's possible that a higher dose of Cialis could be used safely to give your husband the response you are both seeking.   He should not change his dosage without consulting his doctor, however.   Other things that could have altered the efficacy of the Cialis include any changes in his general health, stress, new medications, changes in his alcohol consumption, or that he is taking the drug differently than he did when it was working. The doctor who prescribed the Cialis initially will be the best source of advice on what to do about this issue.
