    Cialis & Raynaud's Disease

    Raynaud's Disease, a rheumatological disorder, is the sudden constriction of blood vessels in the extremities, particularly in the hands, causing sharp pain, blanching, loss of sensation, and - in extreme cases - tissue destruction. More often seen in northern climates, and more prevalent in men, it is a disorder that is managed, not cured. Studies suggest that Cialis (Tadalafil) is an effective adjuctive therapy for managing Raynaud's.


    • Patients having four or more Raynaud's attacks per week despite being on vasodilators were randomized to receive either placebo or tadalafil (20 mg) on alternate days as add-on therapy to their current vasodilators for 6 weeks.

    Primary endpoints were improvement in the daily frequency and duration of Raynaud's episodes. Secondary outcome measures were healing of existing and appearance of new digital ulcers. Results.

    • Twenty-four of 25 recruited patients completed the study. All the patients were receiving calcium channel blockers and in addition 18 were receiving other vasodilators.
    • During tadalafil therapy significant improvement in mean daily frequency, mean daily duration of RP and mean daily RCS were observed as compared with baseline and placebo.
    • All the 24 digital lesions healed during tadalafil therapy as compared with 3/13 during the placebo treatment (P < 0.0001).
    • No serious adverse event was observed.


    Conclusion.
    Tadalafil as add-on therapy improves symptoms of RP, heals and prevents new DUs and improves QoL in patients with resistant secondary RP.

    Anecdotally, having dealt with Raynaud's for some time, I do notice a definite improvement since adding daily Cialis to my regimen over two years ago.

    The only negative side effct I have experienced from low dose Cialis (Tadalafil) 5mgx2 in 24hrs is pretty bad sinus congestion. It is nice to know it helps your circulation in other areas beside the penis.
