I take 100 mg oral Amiodarone daily to prevent arrhythmia…

Customer Question
I take 100 mg...

I take 100 mg oral Amiodarone daily to prevent arrhythmia attacks. This has not limited my physical activity. However in the past year I have experienced mild forms of ED. Is it safe to take Cialis or other similar treatments while taking Amiodarone?

Doctor's Assistant: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?

I am over 60 but in good physical condition and basically healthy.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

There is no direct interaction between cialis and amiodarone.

hence should be ok for occasional use.

But discuss with your doctor also.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
