    Cialis and Pre-workout

    Quick question for everyone. After reading about the general benefits of Cialis for a number of different things I obtained some which I intend to use as a pre-workout pump enhancer.

    My question is what supplements canít be used with Cialis? Iíve heard supplements that increase NO production could be dangerous, why is that? Below is a list of my own ďhome brewĒ pre-workout that I want to get some thoughts on if itís safe to use with Cialis or if I need to take something out of the mix:
    - creatine
    - beta alanine
    - citrulline malate
    - acetyl tyrosine
    - l arginine
    - agmatine
    - carnitine
    - caffeine

    Was thinking of having 5-10mg an hour or so before workout, but want to know if I need to change anything else up to suit.

    The citrulline and arginine could be problematic as they also will act as vasodilators which could cause a drop in BP to unsafe levels.

    Iíve taken the citrulline, arginine and agmatine our of todayís mix so Iíll use 5mg Cialis and see how it goes.

    Iíve heard levitra is good but Iím in Aus and have just found out I have access to Cialis so Iíll give it a go and keep an eye out for levitra.

    5-10mg of CIALIS prior or training is an effective dose for a nice pump,,BPH and ED.

    As long as you don't already have an issue with low BP you'll be fine.

    the caffeine is a Vasal restrictor , whereas everything else is a Vasal dialator . There may be some 'off set' in blood pressure with the caffeine in there .

    the arginine is more then likely a waste . 90% of people cannot absorb a standard doses of arginine and uptake it into the blood stream for nitric oxide , because of a digestive enzyme Arganase (so the L arginine is destroyed in digestion).

    Citruline is the better choice as it can be absorbed and then converted to arginine in the blood stream AFTER digestion has taken place, and thus be used for nitric oxide

    Wait, this is really a thing? Considering how much Cialis and Levitra cost this seems insane.

    Most people use ugl cialis or generic pharmaceutical grade from india. Its a lot cheaper than branded CIALIS. You will often find it by the drug name taladafil or vardenafil

    Cialis is a great supplement period! 5mg every day, 1 hour before the gym. Wish I'd known sooner. Pharma is expensive unless you have good insurance, some of the research Chen brands are pretty good too.

    Yeah in Aus I’ve found a place where I can get 50x 20mg tabs for $100, so it’s pretty cost effective. Seems to be working well, does noticeably increase sex drive/function and it’s almost got to the point where the hard ons are a bit annoying sometimes, like when you wake up in the middle of the night to go to the toilet, I feel like I have to wait half an hour for the damn thing to do down! Haha there’s worse problems to have I guess

    Take 5 mg of it before a workout and you see why people take it as a pre-workout.

    Interesting question....

    There are many wise replies in this thread, though I didn't read everything.

    I think you'd be alright. 5mg of cialis is a low-dose for most people in my experience. Just listen to your body and keep the doses of all supplements & cialis low, espescially at first.

    Sometimes you have to play guinea pig pig yourself and roll the dice!
