Cialis and Cocaine

Drug abuse is on the rise globally. More people are seeking pleasure by using various substances. It is not rare for people to combine multiple legal and illicit drugs. There is a high possibility that many men would be combining street drugs like Cocaine with Cialis.

This article by no means justifies such use and discourages the use of street drugs, as they are well known to cause severe and irreversible harm to health. However, for educational reasons, it provides information about the possible interaction between the commonly used medication for erectile dysfunction (Cialis) and Cocaine.

Many People Are Now Using Cialis for Recreation

To begin with, it would be wrong to say that only men with erectile dysfunction (ED) use Cialis. Those days are long gone, when men with severe ED took such medicines. Nowadays, many men with preserved erectile function use it to prolong sexual act, better satisfy the partner.

Since Cialis is now commonly in use for recreation, for getting more pleasure from sex, it is often used with substances of abuse. Most substances of abuse are known to boost sexual desire, but at the same time, hurt sexual performance.

Many men seek sex after having alcohol or using street drugs. But they are not able to satisfy their partner, as most street drugs prevent hard erection. Thus, many men combine these substances with Cialis. This means that Cialis is now commonly in use for recreation, and not just for treatment (1).

Various Impacts of Cocaine on the Body

Cocaine is one of the most commonly used illegal street drugs. It is a stimulant drug derived from the leaves of the coca plant. Modern street drugs are more potent as they have a higher level of purity. Cocaine may be sniffed, injected, smoked. It is illegally available under many other names.

Street drugs are banned, as they are harmful to health. They are so toxic, because in many cases, they may have other synthetic compounds added to them like fentanyl, amphetamines, and so on. Thus they are very complex.

Cocaine works by increasing dopamine in the brain cells. It causes a feeling of happiness, mental alertness, paranoia. It is also a potent stimulant of sexual desire (2, 3).

Cocaine Is Addictive, Cialis Is Loved

There are two kinds of addictions, psychological and physiological. Psychological dependence is when the body can live without substance, but one seeks that substance for feeling better (like regularly drinking wine in moderate quantities). Physiological addiction is one when the body demands that product, and its absence causes severe painful effects. Cocaine causes both kinds of addiction due to various changes in the brain and the body.

Cialis is not addictive since it does not cause any permanent changes in the brain or the body. However, people love it due to its excellent effect on sexual performance. It does create a kind of psychological dependence. Fortunately, such reliance is not harmful as one uses Cialis only when seeking sex, and the benefits of good sex are many.

Do Cocaine and Cialis Mix Well?

It seems that Cocaine and Cialis mix well, and Cialis does not seem to have any severe adverse reactions with Cocaine. It is essential to understand that such interactions have not been studied in large clinical trials due to ethical reasons.

What is known about Cocaine is that it harms the brain over prolonged use. It changes the way the brain functions by altering the functioning of various neurotransmitters (4). Cocaine is also bad for blood vessels and is known to cause heart problems, increase the risk of stroke (5). What is bad for vascular health is awful for sexual health too. It means that Cocaine might cause ED on prolonged use.

Tadalafil, a substance in Cialis, is now well understood. It is incredibly safe and does not cause severe side effects even on prolonged use. It does not affect the working of the brain, though there are some anecdotal and inconclusive reports of side effects (6).

Cialis may even help counter some of the side effects of Cocaine. Cocaine is a vasoconstrictor, and Cialis is a vasodilator. Thus, Cialis may increase blood flow to the brain and enhance brain function (7). Cialis may also reduce the risk of peripheral vascular diseases related to Cocaine abuse.

What Is the Conclusion?

Needless to say, that one should avoid using Cocaine, as it is harmful and addictive. Nonetheless, if someone combines it with tadalafil/Cialis, such a combination seems to be relatively safe. It is worth noticing that there are no clinical trials to confirm these facts.

There is a need for clinical studies regarding the role of Cialis in reducing brain-related toxicity of Cocaine. It remains to see if it could help by improving the blood flow to the brain. Cialis does not affect the working of various neurotransmitters.

As PDE5 inhibitors were first created to treat heart conditions, Cialis may help lower the risk of heart disease in those abusing Cocaine.

Cialis will undoubtedly help improve sexual performance when used along with Cocaine. Cocaine, in most cases, boosts sexual desire due to its effects on the brain. Cialis does not affect sexual desire, but it improves the quality of erection on sexual arousal.

Though one would not recommend concurrent use of Cialis and Cocaine, due to fears of unknown adverse interactions, they seem to be safe when used together.
