Cialis may help reduce UTI symptoms

An enlarged prostate is usually associated with problematic urinary problems for men, but a drug used for another issue may be able to help. New research funded by Eli Lilly shows a daily dose of the drug Cialis helped men ease lower urinary tract symptoms including increased urination frequency.

Currently, the drug is only approved for treating erectile dysfunction. But, with about 50 percent of men over 50 suffering from some version of this problem, the study suggests a large potential market for erectile dysfunction drugs.

The results of the study will appear in the October edition of the Journal of Urology.
