    If anyone here is using Levitra, I have some questions for you. You may answer them here, or drop me a PM.

    A couple years ago, my husband started taking half of a 10 mg pill before we were to have sex. He had been having issues with erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.

    As it is now, he takes half a pill about 10 - 20 minutes before we have sex. He does not take them every day. He can get an erection, but it tends to wax & wane during the course of foreplay. Sometimes, some manual or oral assistance is needed for his erection to be firm enough for penetration.

    He still has issues with premature ejaculation, and is unable to get another erection for quite some time, if at all.

    My question is, is this normal? I see on the advertisements for e.d. drugs that the erections last for quite a while. He has talked to his doctor, and was given another script to take to increase the duration of his intercourse before orgasm, but he won't fill it, as it's an anti- depressant, and he fears them.

    Another question is, do most men take the pills daily or just before intercourse?

    Have him take 1 whole pill 45-60 minutes before sex.Viagra works best for me.I don't use them all the time,just once a week or so.I have trouble getting off sometimes when I take them.Alot of times I have to mastabate to finish(my lovers love that).Let me know how it works out.Never take the pills daily

    ED oral medications still require sexual stimulation to be effective, so the waxing and waning of erection you are seeing is understandable. After orgasm, it is natural for the erection to go away, and any advertising to the contrary is misleading. ED oral medications should not affect premature ejaculation, unless the PE is related to the man worrying if his erection will last long enough. In this instance, the oral med may give him the confidence to thrust for longer, as long as he can unlearn previous bad behaviour.

    Levitra is effective after food or alcohol, whereas Viagra isn't. My personal favourite is Cialis, as it has a very long half-life, and if you have sex regularly it builds up in a persons system to the point where the next Cialis tablet is merely amplifying the remnants of the previous tablet and possibly the tablet before that. You need to take Cialis about three times a week (sex three times a week). I usually take Cialis about half-an-hour before sex, although it is at its best around two-hours before sex.

    Cialis is less powerful on an individual dose than either Viagra or Levitra, so it takes a few weeks before it becomes fully effective. The other advantage of Cialis is that once it is built up in a man's system, he can have sex without taking a tablet immediately prior.
