Viagra and Cialis are usually administered on demand, that is, a person takes a pill when he plans to have sex in near time. Sometimes, people need to take these tabs every day. Is it ok? Are there any health risks?
Everyday Use of Viagra
Theoretically, one can use Viagra on an everyday basis. However, in practice such cases are not very frequent as not everyone (especially after 40, when prevalence of ED begins to rise) has sex every day. Moreover, some reported occasions of blindness which may be associated with prolonged administration of sildenafil may play a role of a preventive factor despite the fact that direct link between its use and hearing impairment hasn’t been established. Moreover, sildenafil is an active component of Revatio drug. Doctors prescribe it for treating pulmonary arterial hypertension, and patients need to take it every day. So we can conclude that “blue diamond” with the same sildenafil in composition is safe when taking on an ongoing basis.

At the same time, the medication doesn’t cause tolerance worsening. According to the study by James G McMurray et al. (Medical Affiliated Research Center, Pfizer Inc. etc., 2007), most of participants who had used the medication for a long time responded affirmatively when the surveyors asked them about successfulness of erectile dysfunction treatment. This means that durable administration of Viagra doesn’t cause loss of tolerability, it maintains the same effectiveness.
Conclusion: Viagra can be taken every day, that would be ok for your health. However, if you practice daily using (especially in high dosages), it is recommended to consult a healthcare professional.
Administration of Cialis on Daily Basis
Well, it depends. There are two recommended modes of taking Cialis. The first one is taking it on demand (as needed). Considering the fact, that tadalafil acts up to 1.5 days (36 hours), its administering on an everyday basis may be associated with increased risk of side effects as the substance just doesn’t have time to leave the body in full. Two pills are stacked, and the concentration of tadalafil in the blood remarkably increases, causing semi-overdose condition.
The second mode is daily treatment. A male can take low doses of Cialis (2.5 or 5 mg) every day, preferably at the same time, say 12 am. Such treatment can last long. It features the great advantage: there is no need for a patient to plan sex at all, he can have it anytime, as the active substance remains in the body on a permanent basis. This regime can bring more romanticism in a couple’s relationship.

Interestingly, Cialis in minimal doses can treat benign prostate hyperplasia (prostate adenoma, BPH in short). Moreover, according to Konstantinos Hatzimouratidis (Hellenic Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, 2014), this is the only pharmaceutical product that can successfully treat both BPH and ED, because traditionally used medications for reducing urinary tract symptoms, including α-adrenergic antagonists and 5α-reductase inhibitors, are associated with sexual adverse events and may worse impotence.
Conclusion: Cialis in low dosages (2.5 mg or 5 mg) can be used daily, this has been officially allowed. If you take higher dosages (10 mg or 20 mg), time interval between doses should desirably be 36 hours.
Both Viagra and Cialis can be taken every day. But you can do that only if there is a real need. Plus, in case of Cialis you need to use the lowest dosage.
