Cialis Side Effects

Cialis, manufactured by Eli Lilly & Co. and Icos Corp. was approved on November 21, 2003 by the FDA. Cialis is used to treat male impotency and Erectile Dysfunction. On July 11, 2005, the FDA approved a label change for the Cialis after three reported cases of Non-Arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy (NAION), a cause of blindness, in users of the medicine. Five million men have been prescribed Cialis worldwide, the company said.

We did it voluntarily because we thought it was important to make health-care practitioners and prescribers aware,''Lilly spokesman Dan Collins said. ``This is not the result of the FDA asking us to look into this.'' The FDA has 4 reports of varying degrees of vision loss, including blindness among Cialis users. The FDA should be in talks with Cialis, said Sidney Wolfe, the director of the consumer advocacy group Public Citizen's Health Research Group, in a telephone interview.
