A word of warning for men who use the erectile dysfunction medications Viagra, Cialis and Levitra is that you should be aware that you should not mix these drugs with grapefruits or its juice. The interaction between PDE-5 Inhibitors and grapefruit is pretty minimal but nevertheless in order to get the full effect of the medicine you should stay clear of it.
In fact many medications are contraindicated with a grapefruit juice such as cholesterol lowering medicines, blood pressure medicines, antidepressants, HIV drugs and many others. If you are taking any medication is probably advisable that you stay well away from grapefruit juice just to be safe. You should also be aware that other fruits that are similar to grapefruits such as tangelos, Seville oranges and limes are also said to interact with these medications in the same way that grapefruits do. Normal oranges, lemons and other citrus fruits do not interact with the erectile dysfunction drugs Viagra, Cialis and Levitra and therefore are safe to eat with the drugs.
You should also be careful about eating and drinking too much when you take erectile dysfunction drugs. Research has noted that the drugs are much more ineffective if you consume too much alcohol and if you eat large amounts of fatty foods. At Ukmedix News we advise men that Viagra, Cialis and Levitra should not be used as party or lifestyle drugs but only as serious medications to treat the serious condition of erectile dysfunction. People who use Viagra, Cialis and Levitra irresponsibly are putting their health in danger.
