I take Cialis and it stays in your system for 36 hours does that mean I cannot drink alcohol for 36 hours...?

Cialis & alcohol: The ban on alcohol with use of cialis-like drugs is not absolute. Excessive alcohol is contraindicated for 36 hours, but excessive alcohol is always contraindicated.

If your liver function tests are normal then you can safely take Cialis on a regular basis. ...Read more

Is it possible to take Cialis or sildenafil after drinking some glasses of alcohol???

Here are some ...: Some glasses? How many? Generally speaking, 1-2 glasses of wine may be okay for most healthy men, not for marginal ones, still remember a wide variation in alcohol tolerance. So, using alcohol gingerly with PDE-5 inhibitors - preferably not, is good advice. But for 24-yr man, the need for PDE-5 inhibitor is almost none & most of its use is to serve personal fantasy within realm of sex obsession. ...Read more
