    My 48 year old hubby uses Viagra recreationally more than out of necessity although he doesn't get as stiff as he used to. It definitely works! He gets hard like he did in his 20's.

    I would go talk to your doctor to get a proper prescription. Internet drugs could be filled with who knows what. Better safe than sorry!

    i'm 57 and started having 'issues' about 10 years ago, some medical related. any good PCP should be able to ask proper questions and may want to do some routine testing before writing the 'scrip. my preference is for cialis since it lasts longer and allows us more spontaneity. i'd definitely recomend going to a doctor and not looking to the grey market.

    I'm 67 and started using these pills long ago, more as sexual vitamins at first, but I know they help to keep me hard for very long encounters (2 to 3 hours), and to have subsequent boners for 2nd and 3rd orgasms. I first started cutting them in half due to the cost (about $10 each on line), and they worked fine. Now I have insurance and don't need to - prescription cost is around $3 each.

    viagra has side effects and if you having a minor issue, try a herbal supplement first. The ones on TV are made of lots of plant extracts. The TV commercials are BS and their claim but the fact is that the ingredients have been used for 1000s on years. They are all pretty much the same ingredients. I think Endurnz has free samples and Extenze has some promo deal if I remember right.

    i think i may speak for most men in saying that we'll risk the side effects in exchange for a good woody!!!
    i have rarely experience a lingering backache after taking either viagra or cialis.

    Viagra will stay in your system for 4-6...or more hours (it depends on your metabolism and dose). Basically an erection involves relaxation of smooth muscle. Smooth muscle relaxes and blood flows into your penis causing it to become hard. I won't bore you with the whole biochemical pathway but I'll simplify it a little. An erection starts with arousal which stimulates release of nitric oxide. Once nitric oxide is present (in small amounts) it stimulates a biochemical cascade which ends in relaxation of smooth muscle. That cascade will continue so long as arousal is present and the appropriate signalling molecules are still around. Now to "shut down"/regulate that cascade you body uses an enzyme PDE5 to break down a key signaling molecule near the end of the cascade. As PDE5 breaks down those signalling molecules your smooth muscle will contract and terminate your erection. This is a necessary natural measure....you don't want permanent vasodilation in your penis or anywhere else. Viagra or other similar drugs (Cialis) block/inhibit PDE5 so the cascade doesn't get "shut off" as quickly. The signaling molecules hang around longer and you get a more prolonged/harder erection.

    Viagra is easy to get but it is expensive. Exercise, eating a proper diet, and other things you can do for yourself are free and treat the root of the problem. Having said that a lot of men use Viagra safely and enjoy a better sex life because of it. All the erectile meds of that type work in a similar way, but Viagra is the oldest of those meds so you need to take larger doses and it will have a shorter half life that the other newer meds. You might have to try several different meds to figure out which one works best for you.

    The problem with herbal supplements is they may or may not work. For example L arginine is a precursor molecule for nitric oxide. Most people manufacture enough L arginine or get it in their food, so for the large majority of people taking L arginine supplements is a complete waste of time. There are some ginseng products that have some credibility as being able to front load nitric oxide (top of the erection cascade) but even then they may do nothing for you. Commercial herbal products are nothing more than combination of things that may or may not help you and at worst can damage your organs (liver, kidneys etc). I personally think they are a waste of money, but believe what you want.

    Generic Viagra: Breakthrough performance.
    Viagra is the medication that helps such men to rock the bedroom with their hard erections. Viagra works on the problem effortlessly because it has been derived from the most popular blue pill Viagra. Both are analogous in chemical composition. Hence there is no difference in the working potential of Viagra drug. Men with erection inabilities have reported excellent performance after taking Viagra pills. This drug is helping mankind since 1998 after getting FDA approval. This makes it a safe and sound drug to be used by all men suffering from impotence.

    Well I've tried them all and found that bang for bucks and with the least (but not none) side effects is Cialis.
    Anyone wanting further details can pm me as I do not wish to provide gratuitous advice as some folks on here are known to be averse to this very topic.

    Your having Difficulty in erection and it maybe because of your age, Im still hoping that it is not severe ED. Before Taking Any Male Enhancement Products read some MALE ENHANCEMENT REVIEW or Guide for you to be more knowledgeable about the drug that you are planning to take and of course maintain Healthy life style and Good Psychological Status is a MUST for good focus:)

    I posted earlier in this thread , and will say now, several months later...that I haven't noticed any side effects to the herbal that I've been taking. and it really does seem to give me just a little spike in sexual " energy" and erection intensity. I don't have erectile problems, but I am 48,.....I don't take them all the time, but I will take em for two or three weeks and then stop for two or three weeks...and when I'm taking them , slutty always notices. I'm juuuuust a little harder....the fact that she notices without me telling her tells me that they must do something....so if your not full on ED, it may be something worth trying...the product that I have used was called " steel libido" and it's available at the "vitamin shoppe" can't hurt to try....just read the label first....

    one other thing i have decided to mention...adding some fast acting niacin also helps me! and with mrsbikers help often that's enough! taking 500-1000 units of niacin on top of a cialis 20 gets me going like i'm a young guy again!
