Is it safe to take medications like Cialis or viagra (sildenafil) with a penis implant?

Is it safe to take medications like Cialis or viagra (sildenafil) with a penis implant?

Penile prosthesis: Its not that it's unsafe, but more so that it doesn't make sense. A penile prosthesis completely replaces the erectile chambers. There is very little to be gained by taking pde-5 inhibitors after having a penile prosthesis implanted. If the prosthesis is not creating full erections, see your urologist. There may be a problem with the device.

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

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. I would advise finding a very good doctor expert in men;s health to work this out with you.

Is bulging veins of the penis surgery is considered successful for the treatment of venous leakage for young male, if viagra (sildenafil) &cailis dont' work?

Not usually: There was a lot of interest in this treatment many years ago but results were not up to expectations. The number of patients helped by this type of procedure has been very small in my experience

No: There many drugs we use for the treatment of ed. There is not a better drug but other drugs. The efficacy of the drug will vary from person to person. Options include other pills, injections in the penis or urethra, a vacuum pump, or if all fails, surgery for a penile implant.

Is the ED drug muse better than Cialis and viagra (sildenafil)?

Is the ED drug muse better than Cialis and viagra (sildenafil)?

Maybe: These 2 classes of medications work completely different. Depending on your comorbid conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. One class may work be better than another. There is also variability with these medications from person to person. The only way to know how they will work is to try each class and see how your body reacts.

I'm taking 80mg Telmisartan and 5mg Nebivolol everyday. Is it safe to take Viagra or Cialis?

I'm taking 80mg Telmisartan and 5mg Nebivolol everyday. Is it safe to take Viagra or Cialis?

Here are some...: There has been no specific warning of interaction from these medications, except taking nitrates. But, in reality, I still advise my patients to use PDE-5 inhibitors like Viagra, Cialis for a time window of 6-8 hours from alpha-blockers; likewise, try doing the same for these. This precaution is reasonable & doable. More on ED? To articles in http://www. Formefirst. Com/onSexLife-ED-CareOptions. Html

If you take low dose aspirin which is safer Cialis or viagra (sildenafil)?

If you take low dose aspirin which is safer Cialis or viagra (sildenafil)?

Both are fine: Low dose Aspirin is fine w/any oral pde-5 inhibitor such as cialis, levitra, (vardenafil) staxyn, stendra & viagra. Low dose Aspirin can also be used w/alprostadil although you'd want to be more careful if you inject into your penis.

Here are some...: All what you should do is applying the advice as suggested and see since, in reality, there is no guaranty and the only best guaranty is do not use it. So, use drugs as instructed but still with caution since no doc knows anything for any disease conditions or medications as expected by lawyers and public as portrayed by media. This is life reality.

What to do if I do not know if its gonna work. Should I buy some drugs like viagra (sildenafil) cialis?

My take is. ..: For a prior healthy 33-yr man, ED is unlikely and rarely needs Viagra (sildenafil) / Cilalis. So, if you indeed have problem to achieve, or maintain, or sustain erection to complete coitus, seek pro-evaluation and counseling before taking this kind of pill. But one thing very common and important is sex obsession overruns those men's life leading to panic - later ED. So, don't overdo what body can afford...

Do daily ED drugs (e.G., Cialis 5mg) work as well as single use ED drugs (e.G., viagra (sildenafil) 100mg, Cialis 20mg)?

Maybe: The dose of Cialis for erection is either 20 or 10 mg. The 5mg dose is usually for benign prostatic hypertropy. There is some cross-over at 5mg to help some erectile dysfunction.

Erectile Dysfunction: You could take either one of these medications as long as you are not taking nitrates. The safety profile is essentially the same.

Which drug is more effective for treating erectile dysfunction - viagra, cialis or levitra (vardenafil)?

See remark: All three drugs have same basic ingredient They all work well, each may have few whistles & bells. Cialis stays in our system about 3 days. I tell my patients it is like comparing Plymouth & Dodge...or chevy and Pontiac. For some reason some respond to one more than others..
