    Hey guys this is kinda weird question but here goes. I suffer from PTSD and besides nightmares, flashbacks and nightsweats, one of the symptoms is erectile disfunction. So at times I use Cialis before sex. Frequently, the next day I get a headache, but whats weird is my wife complains of the same thing. Has anybody else had this happen?

    No.....not at all. My husband was diabetic and occasionally used ED meds. He never complained of headaches afterward. I never had any symptoms either.

    Well, I'm not a medical professional, by any means, but I deal with medications and stuff of all kinds on a daily (almost hourly) basis. Feel free to consider/discredit accordingly. (I'm just an igna'ant co'ntry boy after all!)

    My advice/thoughts:
    You might want to be sure to check with a pharmacist or other medical professional about drug interactions. It could be something like that. Also, since Cialis has effect on blood pressure/circulation/etc, that might be contributing to a headache the next day (your body readjusting to return to its "regular" cardiovascular state).

    Further (and semi-off topic):
    You've mentioned being on anabolic steroids as well. Steroids of any kind are already risky enough when put to long-term use - especially damaging to cardio health and therefore sexual health (tend to contribute to ED and other sexual dysfunction). I'd consider - if you do not need these anabolics for a legitimate medical condition to knock that shit off. You can be fit, healthy, and "ripped" at any age if you know how to diet and exercise and have the dedication (you've mentioned 2+ hours at the gym; that'd do it!) - no chemical assistance needed. (My father being a prime example. Dude is 53, but his build/musculature is that of a man of my age - 24.)

    there is no way she is ingesting the drug via you. this makes no sense. try cutting your dose in half and see if this helps. also i switched to levitra and no longer had headaches. worth a try

    Birth control pills and antidepressants can be excreted through your urine. It can be possible that the cialis is excreting through his semen or it could be just coincidence.

    Yea. But urine is a natural part of the excrement process and it doesn't mean it's still able to be absorbed after that semen is not part of the same process

    Semen is still excreted from the body that has the medication. It is not that farfetched.

    Maybe it's a 'preventive strike' headache? Since cialis lasts 36 hours (seems closer to 48 when I take it) the headache is getting ready for another round with the old 'not tonight I have a heasdache' excuse! :rolleyes:

    With this logic I could drink the piss of someone who has been drinking all night and get drunk. The body Motabalizes it and really all your getting that could be considered a drug is the processed motabilites, not an oraly or absorbable drug.
