Is it safe to take medications like cialis or viagra (sildenafil) with a penis implant?

Usually: What kind of prothesis? Malleable or inflatable? Assuming you don't have any other contraindications to a pde inhibitor (cialis, viagra, Levitra (vardenafil) or certain medical conditions) you could take them but usually the prosthetic is put in because of failure to have an effect with medication.

Most of the tissue in the penis that will respond to Viagra is destroyed or damaged by inserting a penile prosthesis. Adding Viagra will only cost you money and add side effects.

Penile prosthesis: Its not that it's unsafe, but more so that it doesn't make sense. A penile prosthesis completely replaces the erectile chambers. There is very little to be gained by taking pde-5 inhibitors after having a penile prosthesis implanted. If the prosthesis is not creating full erections, see your urologist. There may be a problem with the device.
