I am writing a report on the effects the PDE5 inhibitor Cialis has on men who suffer from Urinary Tract Infection also known as UTI. I   wanted to post a little about it to get some feedback from the Medindia   community. If anyone has any experience with UTI or has written papers   on it before please share your knowledge.

 

  Based on my research   about several men who were given the phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitor   tadalafil (Cialis) in a multicenter trial  showed relief  in their lower   tract symptoms compared to other men who were just given a placebo.   Four doses of the impotence medication significantly improved scores on   the Prostate Symptom Score.

 

  The standard treatment given to men   (mentioned on MedPage) for treating Urinary Tract Symptoms is alpha 1   adrenergic blocker. For those suffering from both enlarged prostates and   UTI problems a 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor is given but both of these   treatments can cause several side effects such as dizziness and member   dysfunction. A news report on Cialis and UTI on an interesting cialis   information site Edguider mentions that it can help relieve UTI problems   in men that have both urinary tract issues and enlarged prostate.

 

  PDE-5   inhibitors are only approved for Erectile Dysfunction but according to   all my research show allot of promise to also treat UTI, same as Viagra   helps to treat pulmonary hypertension. The question is when will it be   approved so urologists can prescribe it for UTI? Any comments or   suggestions owuld be apreciated.
