Can i take nitratine that's in a supplement d pol and still use viagra (sildenafil) or cialis?

Can i take nitratine that's in a supplement d pol and still use viagra (sildenafil) or cialis?

Best to avoid D-pol: Nitratine (sodium nitrate) is marketed as a supplement to increase blood flow (via its metabolite, nitric oxide) during exercise, allowing for longer workouts & faster muscle development. However, to my knowledge, there's no medical proof that it works. If it does work through nitric oxide, then PDE5 inhibitors like Viagra (sildenafil) could bottom out your BP, theoretically, which is not safe. Best not to use ...Read more

I want to take pill to make my penis harder, what kind of pills please , Cialis ? Viagra (sildenafil) ? I am 28 years old, i can be hard but not to much

Erections: A man of your young age should not just take a pill for this situation. It is vital that we figure out why you are having this problem. Most erection issues are not about the penis, but about your thoughts, feelings, worry and self esteem.
