Viagra and CialisPage 4 of 7    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)

So now I need Pumpkin Seeds...on top of the Almonds, Mango, L-Arginine, Zinc, Yohimbe, Ginsing, Ginkgo, Macca and Horny Goat Weed...have I missed any?


Yes, I heard Kettle Popcorn can do wonders for the libido and it's cheaper than Cialis and Viagra. I hear TMF knows a good place to get lots of the stuff, but it's seasonal......

Sub-lingual DMG ( for more oxygen), folate rich foods along with L arginine for blood flow ( balanced with l lysine) if you are prone to cold sores.
http://www.webmd.com/heart/arginine-heart-benefits-and-side-effects

Ginger root..Great for the mojo ( ginger should not be used in conjunction with blood thinning medications)


Yohimbe can be dangerous.
http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/dangers-yohimbe-extract-10074.html

ED can be a sign of serious blood flow issues elsewhere.
See a Dr.first and rule out cardiovascular/other physical issues.


10 bucks a pill is high for some things, but not sex if you have weighed the risks and under a Drs care.
I would try alternatives first.

Well let's see...
Women give me head aches, lack of a woman gives me a head ache so I guess I'll go with Cialis and try to have some fun with my head ache.

I'm off...time to look for ginger root and Kettle Corn sprinkled with DMG, well just a few more minutes as I need to get out of the tub first.

Ha!
Post pics and make a you tube video too, but put the DMG under your tongue first, silly.

Get good pharmacy information from Canada.

My friends tell me it is remarkably cheaper through Canada---but I have lost contact with the friends who ordered from there.


Therefore, I don't know a name but I would do an internet search for a reliable Canadian company.

Their medications are produced in from India but Canada has high standards and my friends who order through Canada report they have been of a good quality.

These friends order antibiotics, anti hypertensive drugs etc and the Viagra and Cialis.

I once ate two pounds of pumpkin seeds in one week to keep me healthy.
My plumber found several pumpkin vines growing in my sewage system, so I halted that practice.

Speak to a doctor regarding the other drug therapies, of course.
I never did quite understand why the Cialis folks opt to take baths in adjoining tubs in their advertisements.

When Cialis first came out, I thought it was a drug to get women in the mood, and stay in the mood. I figured Viagra was for men and Cialis was for women....How stupid was that! ;) I thought by relaxing in separate baths, the woman's downtown region was getting ready......for what? I have no clue.....go figure. I never really listened to the words in that commercial.....or any prescription drug commercial for that matter as I hate listening to the part about side effects....."you may experience dizziness, heart palpations, loose stools and possibly death...." the announcer said in a rather calm voice.

($10 a pill for Viagara from a friend i know that takes it. Insurance does not cover it. )

In the USA there is no pharmacy selling Viagra for ten dollars... now some insurance will have a copay of $10 but it might be for 4 or less pills. Average price is $32 to $48.00 per PILL and many insurances will not pay for 30 pills. In Canada these drugs cost far less.

If you have insurance their are copay assistance cards. Some manufacturer will give you a couple at no charge to see if it works for you. But it's one per person for lifetime.
Testosterone is sometimes the culprit whether shot or cream compound. Again talk with your doctor.
Maca and Horny Goat Weed is Over the Counter but before taking any supplements definitely talk with your doctor.

I was surprised when a local physician came in and was talking about that men who are addicted to Porn have realissues of hardness and longevity. I definitely would say diet, exercise, a lubricant like Astorglide and a healthy ability to use your imagination to get in a great mindset for foreplay, sex etc... can't hurt. Good luck

Eat clean and exercise for longer erections.
If you aren't getting blood flow you have something interrupting /slowing it down.
These aren't "turn me on" drugs. YOU need stimulation .
Make sure issues aren't in your head.
See what meds you take that could adversely affect "mojo" or erections.

When these medications may not be safe.
MAYO CLINIC

They can be dangerous if you have certain health problems or you're taking particular medications. Erectile dysfunction medications may not be safe if you have
Heart problems, including reduced blood flow (aortic stenosis or left ventricular outflow obstruction), heart pain (angina), abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia) or a recent heart attack
High or low blood pressure that isn't controlled
A history of stroke within the last six months
Eye problems, such as retinitis or if you have a family history of certain eye problems
Severe liver disease, including cirrhosis
Kidney disease that requires dialysis

Never take Viagra, Levitra or Cialis if you take nitrate drugs to treat heart pain (angina). Like Viagra, Levitra and Cialis, nitrate drugs dilate blood vessels. Their combined effects can cause dangerously low blood pressure and loss of consciousness.

The herb Damiana and others dilate blood vessels


Sildenafil (Viagra), vardenafil (Levitra or Staxyn) and tadalafil (Cialis) are all medications that reverse erectile dysfunction by increasing nitric oxide, a chemical naturally produced by your body. Nitric oxide opens and relaxes blood vessels in the penis, helping you get and keep an erection.

NOTE:
These erectile dysfunction medications don't increase your sex drive and only cause erections when you are sexually stimulated.

Rotor rooter your arteries by lifestyle and food. It can be done.
If a woman doesn't make you "salute" when around her at all, but you still can get an erection, maybe you should find one that will pitch the tent for you.

Natural things can help such as DMG for oxygen enrichment in the blood, damiana for blood flow but if you are on certain meds. I wouldn't do anything without an expert/Dr/Nutritionist that will work with your Dr in finding whats best for you.

You just may need to leave off bread and sugar, skip a med that you dont really need to live and change your diet.

Andrew Weil
Commonly called male impotence, ED is the inability to achieve or maintain penile erections sufficient for intercourse. ED often has a psychological component, and counseling with a psychotherapist or sex therapist often resolves the problem. ED can also be a symptom of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, both of which can impair blood supply to the penis. In addition, many medications, including those prescribed for high blood pressure and mental health conditions, can interfere with sexual functioning. Tobacco, cocaine, stimulants and alcohol may also play a role.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Bear in mind that some of the problems leading to erectile dysfunction may lend themselves to the following non-drug (and cost-free) solutions:

Stop smoking. Nicotine can reduce genital blood flow and impair potency.
Check your meds. ED and sexual dysfunction are unfortunate side effects of many drugs. Consult with your pharmacist or doctor regarding substituting alternate medication without these effects.
Limit alcohol consumption. Alcohol’s depressive effects can have a negative impact on sexual functioning.
Shape up. ED is often linked with restricted blood flow to the penis. Keep your heart and arteries in good condition by maintaining a healthy weight, and following a diet high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Avoid saturated fats and trans fats. Regular aerobic exercise can both improve blood flow to the genitals and reduce the stress that can contribute to ED.
Deal with anxiety, depression and stress. These feelings may undermine desire and potency. Practice a daily stress-reduction technique such as breath work, meditation or yoga. Talk with your partner openly and honestly about your needs – and their needs – to help ease relationship tensions and avoid resentment and misunderstandings.
Don’t worry about your age. Sexual activity needn’t end because of age – that’s a myth you can discard.

Saw palmetto combined with pygium, ginkgo, oat straw, l arginine are other things you can try.

A man over 50 about 6 years ago was the absolute longest lasting" Olympian of erections" (if they have the big E Olympics) I have ever come across.
He was fit and took zero medications ( RX).

He did take cayenne, salmon oil and vit E for heart health and ate a low sugar/ flour diet.
Lots of veggies and spicy foods, beans and eggs.
I never met a 20/30/40/45 year old that could maintain like that.AMAZING.

WOULD NEVER have believed it in a million years if I hadn't had a relationship with him.

Its possible with an optimal diet that test levels would not decline too much,sometimes older guys go right into their seventies if lean.But we are made to be replaced.You wouldn't actually know if he was getting assistance.Cabergoline is gaining some attention,research continues.

My father had his prostate removed at about age 75 (not cancerous) and they told him he probably wouldn't be able to have an erection after the surgery. In a moment of Too Much Information, my Dad told me that everything works fine and he had sexual relations with my mother until a year or so before she died..because she was ill, not him.

So yes, a healthy lifestyle, good diet and excercise plus a good attitude...yup, you can have a satisfying sexual relationship into your 80's without the help of the blue pill. Go Dad.

As an RN I advise you to skip the really bad advice from one poster about diet, supplements, ETs. She is an instant expert on everything. Ignore!!! Next issue, she will again pull out her googling bag of baloney and toss in a personal story. Ignore!

Everyone is unique because of a wide range of issues...including family history, medical history, etc. Your doctor is not a robot who does not look at this first before everything else. Don't compare your situation to Internet stories.

Re cost. Always ask the doctor to prescribe your Viagra in 100 mg. (not 25mg or 50mg). This will cut cost a lot. A $3 tablet cutter at the pharmacy will pay for itself cutting one pill. Often the prescribed dose is 25mg, sometimes 50, rarely 100.

Always ask for 100mg! Much less expensive. Just tell the doctor you are cutting the pills into smaller doses. He will be completely aware of this practice.

Fill you prescription in multiple boxes of 4. Two boxes, total of 8 (100 mg)pills...$100. Cut into 32 doses...about $3 a dose. One box of 25mg at $40...$10 a dose.

Always ask about what you can do to reduce cost when your doctor writes out any prescription.

It's costing me $25 per 50mg pill, which I cut in half. I needed a prescription, then a few years later found out I had an enlarged prostrate. After I got that taken care of, I no longer needed the pill but kept the prescription, because I can go for HOURS when I take it.

Was that TMI? :o/

Why is it costing you $25 a pill? I'm looking at my screen and our hospital pharmacy has 4 100mg tablets for less that $50. There is a chance you are getting a box of 4 50mg at an independent pharmacy for $50. Walmart is usually less expensive than our dispensary so I'd guess $45 for 4 100mg.....that's 16 doses 'on average'.

OMG, you do the same. An "expert" on everything. Pep has some valid points about health, diet, excercise and trying to stay away from big pharma. Why not try a few things before we throw the heavy drugs at a "problem". She's not telling diabetics to toss their insulin or things like that for crying out loud. Geez. And you know what, some doctors know jack shit about stuff, they don't care, they have no time, they need to fill a billing quota and it's far easier to throw drugs at a person than to dig in and find out what the issue is. And before you go all ballistic, yes, the vast majority of doctors are good folks, well trained, caring, etc.

You wound me to the quick. RN ? So what?
Have you helped more people than I have?
Money wasted on a supposed education if you really believe lifestyle, stress and diet do not affect ED or any health/age related matter.
As far as personal stories. I cant count how many you have come up with * stories* in the years on here about your younger lovers..Please.Way to often and way TMI


Stop being a hypocrite. How many time you have * preached* about lifestyle and diet in the forums over the years ?




Older fit people have usually led a healthy lifestyle...usually because they were more responsible, intelligent and well educated. Looks and other desirable traits usually go more hand in hand in older people than they do for the average 25 year old.. Female airheads and male bubbas can be great looking at 25 but at 55 crappy diet, smoking, lack of exercise has turned many into out-of-shape wrinkled chubbies who have joint issues or can't run a half mile.[/quote
OH FAWK^^^^^^Theres one now and not to long ago either.
Change your mind already?

Listen to your doctor rather than the wisdom of Peppermint Petunia .

Next medical issue she will be armed with more concoctions, herbs, eye of newt and, of course, a personal story. It's amazing how every ailment known to man has impacted her life. More cures than Granny Clampett.

Shall we start listing her 'expertise'. Cardiology, rheumatology, infectious diseases, various hormonal systems, ...cures for arthritis, the cold, impotency, endoctrinal ailments, hypertension....

Love the last one. Perimenopause...'don't drink before sex'. WTF. Where do you come up with this stuff?

Next patient! PP will have her cure and story.

^^^ And you're smarter? We've read your posts too. You come across as a huge know it all.

My G.P. is stupid, in my opinion. The only reason why I stay with her is because I sued her partner for mis-reading my xrays and I won. So if I fart the wrong way my G.P. sends me to a specialist. I book my physicals for August when she is on vacation and she has a replacement in as he does a more thorough exam that my G.P. has ever done.

The are a gazillion excellent nurses and doctors out there and there are many that should be selling shoes at Walmart. There are also some excellent naturopaths and some very knowledgable folks that have studied natural healing. I have an Metis friend that is a healer, I ask him questions and he has more knowledge than any nurse I've met. Traditional healing has been going on for eons, it's not all witchraft and hocus pocus.

Don't drink before sex - pretty sure she meant alchohol. Not a bad idea if you're having issues with dryness or libido.

What has the world come to when a "young guy" can't log onto the POF forums and get some sound proper advice on ED from the female posters here. Instead we get conflicting stories/diagnosis and cat fights...chopping pills...never, go big or dont go at all.

Totally respect your profession.

Nothing is more traumatizing to a mid life male entering the dating scene then the shocking realization that he ain't 25 anymore and meeting Christie Brinkley ain't gonna happen any time soon either.

Best to be prepared!

Craigslist is inexpensive. 30 100mg pills for $150.

It does suck having secret rendevous with strangers wearing sunglasses and a ballcap to get these things, but it's not like you're buying heroin and they come in sealed containers.

Never know when that moment might strike and have wasted a few with unrealistic expectations and bad planning, lol.

Cut em in half or else you'll have a kickstand all night, and the ladies will know something is up...

Luckily none of the sellers considered me attractive.
