as you can see all the pills that treat this condition in men work via the same mechanism. While I can understand you not wanting to have to give yourself an injection in the penis every time I think, given your history of diabetes and a heart attack, that you should ask your cardiologist before using cialis or any medicine like it. She would be the best person to give you advice on this topic.

Does this make sense to you?
