Please give me detailed instructions for making my own sildenafil at home.?

Please give me detailed instructions for making my own sildenafil at home.?

Not a D.I.Y. project: Making prescription medications is not a do-it-yourself project. However, there are many other aspects of "sex life" that are indeed d.I.Y. Activities, such as going on walks, watching movies together, taking vacations together, planting a garden together, just talking, etc., etc....

Can I still use sildenafil when I am using nifedipine?

Can I still use sildenafil when I am using nifedipine?

Yes: Nifedipine is used to lower blood pressure (among other uses). It is not considered a nitrate like Nitroglycerin which is used for chest pain (angina). Use of nitrates means you shouldn't use sildenafil & its pde5 competitors because combination can lower your blood pressure dramatically & kill you. Be careful of otc natural organic options to viagra as they are often contaminated w/viagra.

Hi, I am suffering from early cumming, I cannot have sex longer than 3 minutes. I used lidocain spray and sildenafil tablet before, but they weren't good.

See answer: Premature ejaculation (pe) is a common sexual complaint affecting as many as 1 out of 3 men at some time. Both psychological and biological factors play a role in pe. Treatment options: psychological counseling; behavioral modification sex therapy (squeeze technique); and medications: topical anesthetic creams (promescent) and a class of antidepressants (ssris) which inhibit or delay ejaculation.

Are alprostadil and sildenafil effective in all types of erectile impotence?

Are alprostadil and sildenafil effective in all types of erectile impotence?

No: These medications can improve blood flow and/or retention in the penis to help erection. If impotence is related to nerve damage or lack of testosterone they would not be likely to help.

Can you tell me how safe is using sildenafil citrate and how effective it is?

Here are some. ..: Largely, sildenafil is safe and effective especially at the early stage of ED. But, for a man of 34 without ED-causing conditions such as DM, drugs, spinal cord injury, etc., I would advise to work on practicing low-risk healthy lifestyle without overindulgence / obsession - sex included and not engage in sex more than 2 times weekly first before taking sildenafil. If still in doubt, see Doc.

How dangerous is using sildenafil citrate and how effective it is?

How dangerous is using sildenafil citrate and how effective it is?

Here is...: Sildenafil (viagra) is effective for ed with high safety profile; but no drug is 100% free of side effect. Its effectiveness is dictated by the degree of erectile functional loss from the accumulating effects of vessel/nerve-related changes by aging ; diseases, drugs, etc. Drug is able to boost up the function to cover the functional loss to a degree, but undesirable aging effect continue to pile.

Is there any side effect of sidnefil on long term use?

Is there any side effect of sidnefil on long term use?

I have seen no RXN!: Headache and flushing, and occasional dizziness. No significant long term adverse effects. Obviously many men who use the drug have vascular risk factors, some of which can permanently effect the optic nerve, but these reactions are quite rare!

Hello, My husband has taken sildenafil 50 mg tablets (just one tablet) last week and he feels hot inside. What can he do to reduce tablet effect?

Here are some. ..: What is his age & medical background? If like yours and reasonably healthy, try taking part in sex only once every 2-4 days and after a good mental & physical rest / recovery while his stomach is at least half way empty; so doing, he may not need Viagra (sildenafil). If he wants it under internal or external pressure to feed fantasy, try 15-25 mg. If still, has side effect, stop it, and seek pro-counseling...

I have oral surgery for impacted wisdom tooth tomorrow. Is it safe to take viagra (sildenafil) today? Heard mmight interact with anesthesia

Yes: Most wisdom teeth extractions are done under local anesthesia with a sedative, not full general anesthesia. Talk to your provider and confirm the procedure. If it is general anesthesia you will need to tell your anesthesiologist so that they can take precautions. However, at 39 years old it is not likely that you need viagra (sildenafil) for erectile dysfunction.

My wife does not have much of a sex drive at 61. What can she do will sildenafil help?

My wife does not have much of a sex drive at 61. What can she do will sildenafil help?

It's unlikely: That a med for erectile dysfunction will help her libido. Is she more tired than usual, not sleeping well at night or having pain with intercourse? Fatigue is the major anti aphrodisiac.

Taking viagra (sildenafil) is safe?

Not everyone: Doesn't help females. Only helps males w/erectile dysfunction. Don't take if you have cardiac disease, etc. Don't take with certain other medication such as Alpha blockers (given for high blood pressure and/or prostate problems). Check w/your doctor. There are some side effects as well.

Which is the latest sildenafil drug?

Viagra (sildenafil): Viagra is the only brand of sildenafil which is not yet available as a generic. Sildenafil is a pde-5 inhibitor. All pde-5 inhibitors are only available in the states as brands, not generics. Compare cialis, levitra, (vardenafil) staxyn & stendra to viagra. What's best for you may not be best for someone else but as a class, they all have the same benefit & side effect profile. And none can be taken w/nitrates.

How effective is viagra (sildenafil)?

Effective at what?: Sildenafil is generic form of branded Viagra (sildenafil) & Revatio. Former is indicated for use in erectile dysfunction for which it is very useful. Latter is indicated for use in pulmonary hypertension. Of course, inadequate dosing won't be effective but too much isn't good either.
