This answer was rated:

I currently take daily cialis 5 mg for BPH, for last 3 years, recently starting to have difficulty maintaining a erection. I am 66 in excellent physical condition, still have regular nocturnal erections. Usually have sex 2-3 time per week. I cannot figure what's going on.

Can I take an additional 5 mg occasionally to see if thing improve?
