Tadalafil and surgery

Experts say that Tadalafil should not be taken before surgery because it contains nitric oxide, it dilates the blood vessels and relaxes muscles and can increase the chance a dangerously low blood pressure in patient can interact with drugs that needs to be administered during the treatment such as anesthesia according to American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA).

The combination of nitric oxide in Tadalafil and anesthesia medication can mitigate the effect of the drugs that are use for low blood pressure during surgery and can produce different long and short term consequences such aspoor circulation and kidney or heart failure.

  • It is not recommended to use Tadalafil or its analogs full 24 hours before surgery.
  • Patients should never feel embarrassed to tell the health care specialist that is administering Tadalafil. The anesthesia professionals need to know all the medication that patient is using in order to prepare an anesthesia plan and to keep the patient safe. Health care specialists honor the provider-patient code and will keep sensitive information safe.
  • For avoiding any complication during and after the surgery it is recommended to inform the doctor about the current use of Tadalafil, tell your anesthesia specialist about all the medication currently in use, including dietary supplements and herbal supplements.
  • If it is safe to take Tadalafil after surgery and how long patient should wait till be able to use Tadalafil after surgery is a question which can answer only the doctor because there are too many factors that can modify the answer.
