So than, if I drink grapefruit juice with Cialis, then I can take way less, and save a bunch of money?? Awesome! Any idea if this also works with weed and heroin??

Seriously though, that is a pretty important piece of information..thanks for sharing it.

So if I get called to Dwaynes house and I find him unconscious on the kitchen floor with obvious priapism going on and an empty bottle of Cialis next to his head, and an orchard full of half-eaten grapefruit littering the kitchen, can I safely assume that he doesn't have...um...like... a spinal injury?
