Re: How long on Oral ED Drugs?...

Am 64 and have been using pills since radiation treatment for prostate cancer at 55 initially for rehab and then due to some ED. Have gone from Viagra to Cialis 20 MG and am now on Cialis 5 mg but sometimes take multiple doses. Divorced and not dating, so erections don't have to be as firm as for in...

Re: Taking Cialis Daily vs As-Needed

Have taken cialis 5 mg daily use for about 4 or 5 years. Since prostate cancer radiation ten years ago, I had been on Viagra and Cialis 20 mg for which insurance covered 8 pills a month. I switched to the 5 mg daily use because of worsening problems with being able to empty my bladder. Took it and t...

Re: Simvastatin

I would also like to hear feedback about simvastatin (generic zocor). Been on lower dose of 10mg for almost 10 years. Used to be the only one I took at night so forgot it a lot. I assumed erectile problems were entirely from prostate cancer radiation. Now wondering if statins also contributing to pr...

Re: About to take the plunge

Bill, Good luck with the surgery later this month. It sounds like you have gone through alot. Sorry to hear that your local urologist is unwilling to continue to work with you if you go to a center of excellence for the implant. I have been very lucky that my local urologist never voiced a single ob...

Re: How to open and apply MUSE

I never refilled my first prescription. I had great difficulty with the applicator, seeing the muse on the tip, and seeing if the muse was off after trying to slide the applicator up my urethra. The only way I knew I had gotten it in was a burning area on the underside near the tip. I was using it t...

Re: Clomid

This is interesting information. Will insurance cover clomid for low T. I had prostate cancer 8 years ago with no recurrence. Are docs more comfortable prescribing clomid than T given the prostate cancer concerns. Thanks.

Re: Supplements that increase PDE5 effectiveness?

I've been told by a doctor that grapefruit juice enhanced cialis, but I haven't tried it. The same doctor suggested letting the pill dissolve under the tongue instead of swallowing it.

questions RE pumps

My doctor has convinced me to buy a pump for penile rehab. I was hoping some of you guys might have answers to some questions: 1) I'm assuming my health plan won't cover it, but can it atleast be purchased from a "Flexible Spending Account" or "Health Savings Account". The IRS do...

Re: 20 Years Suffering Silently with PE

Down, I am assuming you have already tried the sprays and products in the drugstores in the area where condoms are displayed. If so and they haven't worked, you should definitely see a urologist. There has been a lot of work done using SSRI anti-depressants to slow down ejaculation. The urologist wo...

Re: Cowpers Gland

Hi. I'd be interested to hear if you figure out why that came back to life after 2 years, for example did you change your diet? I had brachytherapy 6+ years ago, and the radiation is inserted through and past the bulb of the penis and the area of those glands. I never discussed it with the urologist...
