Mike,

RickMD :

You have no need to worry. If you are otherwise healthy enough to take 5 mg of cialis, you can take 10 mg at one dose or, if needed, you can take an additional 5 mg as needed.

RickMD :

There is no concerns of an overdose at this level, all other things being equal.

RickMD :

Does this make sense to you?

Hi Mike,
I was just thinking about you today and wondering how things turned out with the larger dose.
I hope you are doing well.
Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you in the future. Have a good day. :)
