5 mg is low dose: 5mg of Cialis is a relatively low dose and is sometimes used daily as opposed to as needed for erectile dysfunction. There is also 10mg and 20 mg doses. Cialis and all erectile dysfunction drugs work in 20 minutes to 4 hours. However, stimulation must occur for them to work.

High Blood Pressure: Depending on the type of medication you are taking, missing even one dose of a blood pressure medication can cause significant elevations of blood pressure. Headache, fatigue, confusion and overall "bad" feeling are symptoms commonly reported with elevated blood pressures. It is important to take these medications regularly to avoid potentially life-threatening consequences of high blood pressure.

A 92-year-old member asked:
My friends and family noticed that some 90 yo people speak and think better around 4pm. Is that because BP meds wear off and they were low or other?

Bp: Could be bp. Could be other medications. Could be increased attentiveness in the afternoon. Nothing about 90to year old is predictable except they do not need 120/80 BP target...Usually do not tolerate it.

Most likely: Explanation is error in reading diastolic BP as your pulse pressure width sbp-dbp is unusually small...See your physician for an accurate reading & assessment.
