Q: Can it take Calais after a stroke

Doctor

A:   Cialis is a medication which contains phosphodiestarase5 inhibitor is used for erectile dysfunction. The main contraindications for this medication is the concommitant use of nitrate medication as it can lead to dangerous lowering on blood pressure. Stroke per se is not a contraindication and thus it can be used after a stroke. However I would still advice you to talk to your physician and go through your entire medical history before taking this medication. I hope this helps.
