Doctor insights on:
Is there any contraindication about using both l-arginine based creams/gels and viagra (sildenafil) (100mg) together?
Likely OK for you: L-arginine taken by mouth ; likely if cream is absorbed into skin will liberate some nitrous oxide which will increase blood flow to the penis. Ur already taking quite a high dose of viagra (sildenafil) for a young man. My suggestion would be to try l-arginine by itself first. L-argenine will produce nitrous oxide whereas viagra (sildenafil) will block breakdown of nitrous oxide. Also suggest check with your DVT dr.
Is there any contraindication about using both l-arginine based creams/gels and xarelto/rivaroxaban (anticoagulant)?
No: As far as i know, there is no known contraindication, and I have searched for it and found none.
Arginine: ....Is something your body normally makes, but you can be deficient if you don't have enough of the building blocks. Symptoms of deficiency include poor wound healing, hair loss, skin rash, constipation, and fatty liver. There is some evidence it may be useful for claudication (pain in your legs with exercise due to poor circulation). It's used for lots of other things, but without good evidence.
Wouldn't recommend: Protein supplementation is not the greatest idea in teens. It really is much better for them to get their nutrition through food intake. These supplements are not well regulated and one can never be sure you are taking what they say. Also, protein supplements are stressful to developing kidneys. If you teen is wrestler ,body builder it is best to get the protein with meats, eggs, dairy, nuts.
Depends: For congestive heart failure: doses range from 6-20 grams per day, as three divided doses. For chest pain (angina pectoris): 3-6 grams three times per day for up to one month. For preventing the loss of the effectiveness of Nitroglycerin (angina pectoris): 700 mg four times daily. For organic erectile dysfunction (ed): 5g taking lower doses might not be effective.See 1 more doctor answer
unlikely: Assuming that the source of the l-arginines that you are considering are reliable, then this is a basic Amino Acid which should be the same whatever the source. There is always a risk with unregulated products like this that you are getting less than the label says, or some hopefully benign adulterant to save money for the manufacturer.
Yes: Of course. Ginseng is a general tonic that can raise testosterone levels and enhance male sexual function. L-arginine is an amino acid with many benefits including raising nitric oxide levels, thus dilating blood vessels and enhancing erections, sometimes called Nature's Viagra. These are often combined (along with other ingredients) in supplements for male health. They can work synergistically.
Unknown: At this time there insufficient evidence to show a positive relationship between L arginine supplementation and improvements in athletic performance / strength. It is found naturally in the food you eat (meats). At this time, I'd save your money over using it as a supplement
Not so easy or Simpl: You can not be doctoring her without knowing much of anything about human body and how it functions. Who told you that arginine can be helpful to her to increase her height?. Let her seek help from a proper doctor and you stay out of such medical matters.
Is arginine safe to take? My brother-in-law has been encouraged to take "nitric factor" in the form of arginine, is this safe longterm?
Arginine: Like many supplements there aren't really any studies looking at longterm outcomes (5, 10, 15yrs). It's probably safe, but will it boost athletic performance in a meaningful way? Maybe, maybe not. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22251130.
