Viagra (sildenafil) says "if u have an erection longer than 4 hrs." is it bad to have erection longer 4hrs if u haven't taken viagra (sildenafil)? As in hours of sex with gf

Four Hour Erection: It is very unusual for a male to have an erection that lasts for over four hours without ejaculation or periods of time when the erection is less firm.

A four hour erection or more is called priapism and can be a very serious situation for a man where the tissues of the penis begin to lose oxygen and to die off. I doubt that sexual activity as you describe is the same thing. ...Read more

How rare is a 4 hour erection from 5mg cialis? I have read what they have to do for this in the ER and don't want experience it!

Avoid ER visit: People' s response to medication is idiopathic (meaning applies only to you). Everyone is different but given your age, and lack of medical reasons for lowered libido, a 5 hour erection is quite possible. Instead of taking that medication, treat the panic attacks with behavior therapy since anxiety medicine can also cause decrease in libido. ...Read more

Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine): Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is a drug that is converted to an amphetamine-like drug in your body. This is a stimulant. It can help people with adhd when prescribed by a doctor. Stimulants tend to cause construction of blood vessels. If the arteries and vein tissue in a man's penis constricts, he will loose his erection. This is temporary and should wear off in a day or two. If it doesn't, you should see your doctor or a urologist.

Oh, ThatMagicFeeling: Yes, it's highly understandable that might occur, unless you are a professional escort getting paid for your duties, in jeopardy of losing your job. At that point I'd suggest you either take a vacation or buy some Viagra (sildenafil). In your case, it's not unreasonable to think that exhaustion would suppress the required juices. Next time try to accept that and not even get started or try alternatives...... ...Read more
