I had contact today with a scientist who is working on a very interesting study regarding Viagra. We had a long talk and he may be interested in studying us. I would like to get a quick feeling for the following question from Viagra users:

1) did it work for you?*
2) if it works, does it do so reliably on a regular basis?
3) did it increase your side effects in any way (numbness, depression, cognitive or other aspects, within a period of 24 hours)?

* I realize this question has been asked before, but I need more data in particular together with question 3.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Viagra/Cialis worked pretty good for about two years. At the end of two years saw a steep drop off in effectiveness. I have definitely gotten worse, whether that is a result of using Viagra/Cialis or just my body continuing to change and adjust to its new post fin baseline I can't say. Based on the number of other issues I've encountered over that time I tend to think the latter. But who knows, Viagra/Cialis are also inhibiting a enzyme just like fin, so they may have side effects that were hidden by the manufacturers, just like Merck did.

I am mainly interested in Viagra because the scientist is studying Viagra, but feel free to volunteer experience with other PDE5 inhibitors.

Cialis 80-100%.
Viagra 60-90%

Yes but cannot use either on consecutive days as a tolerance is quickly gained.

I would have to say no, the sides i get are the ones on the leaflet, muscle pain, nasal congestion etc.

I took Levitra ....

Did it work for you ?

well it did work somehow but the erection was not as full as before it was like a random post finasteride erection with the difference that I could hold it longer .



2) if it works, does it do so reliably on a regular basis?

well I don't know I just took about 4 pills but was too scared after I read about a possible tolerance. I took these pills not regularly everyday . I took one pill every week

3) did it increase your side effects any way (numbness, depression, cognitive or other aspects, within a period of 24 hours)?

Except headache and the typical increased mucus everything was fine .


But I am too afraid to take these pills again because I have very high blood pressure . I took Levitra the last time in about 2011 .
I'm really afraid that I could harm more veins arterials etc. when I take it again.

I'm very early in this, but thought I would post.

I got a prescription for 5 mg daily cialis. I started by cutting a pill in 4, and took 1 a day for 4 days in a row (but not yesterday). It seemed to help. The problem is that I had been having nocturnal and morning erections for about a month (out of sorghum I believe), but didn't get anything last night (at all), which really scarred me. My dick was much smaller, and really flat. Woke up with zero libido.. like going back in time. I have alot of anxiety so it's certaintly not helping, but I wonder if cialis could have aggravated these symptoms?

Anyways, after reading posts on this forum, I won't be taking this on a regular basis. I will only use it when I need it .. I only "tried" (without success) to have sex once in the last 2 years (was a complete nightmare), but was going to give this another try soon.. it's really freaking me out, and this is why I got the drug.

Hopefully, I will be ok if I take a 5 mg pill in the morning. Otherwise, life will have hit a new low.

Flash update ..

Was with a girl over the week-end. I took 2x 5 mg of cialis, and then about 25 mg of viagra. I was almost a year since I had been with a girl and was scarred to death.

Despite of taking all these pills, I felt nothing in the trousers. Stress must have its share of the blame, but I was astonished that nothing happened.

Back to square one. I think that working on anxiety is probably the way to go. But obviously, easier said than done. Long way to go...
