Cialis safe with Blood Thinners?

Ask The Doctor > Questions & Answers > Cialis safe with Blood Thinners?

Patient: Is it safe to take ED medications like Cialis or Viagra while taking Blood Thinners such as Arixtra, Lovonox, or Cumudin?

Doctor: There has been no significant evidence of interaction between these drugs. Research indicates that ED medications do not affect the changes in blood and the prothrombin time brought about by the blood thinners. So it may be safe to be on both medications at one time, but it is always recommended to consult your family doctor before taking any medications while on blood thinners.There has been no significant evidence of interaction between these drugs.
