Herbal or Prescription for ED?

Recovering from robotic prostate surgery. Nerves believed to be in tact. Curious if anyone has any experience with an herbal ED supplement such as Zenerx? Concerned about side effects of Viagra, etc. Thank you for any responses!

Re: Herbal or Prescription for ED?

Unfortunately, the idea that herbs are safer than drugs just isn't true. Viagra has one active ingredient, and its side effects are well established. Zenerex has 17 active ingredients, some of which have not been tested for safety in humans. I don't think anyone has any idea what mixing all of them could do to a person.

By the way, I did a search for that product, and I was impressed with the technical skills of the manufacturer: I couldn't find a single piece of information that wasn't written by them, except by searching the keyword "spam." Their marketers have written all their own reviews and successfully buried dissenters. Now, why would a company selling a quality product have to do that?

I do know that one of those 17 herbs was the original source for Viagra, that it contains a very similar chemical with the same effect on the body. So, you can have your Viagra purified and delivered at a known dose, or take an unpredictable dose mixed with all sorts of other chemicals.

Re: Herbal or Prescription for ED?

If you don't like the side effects of Viagra, try Levitra or Cialis. Soon you'll be able to try the newly approved one called Stendra. Many doctors advocate beginning daily dosing (5 mg for Cialis, 20 mg for Viagra or Levitra) 5 nights a week and the full dose once or twice a week at first, beginning as soon as the catheter is out. If that doesn't give you nighttime erections, start using a pump, which your urologist can prescribe.Your penile cells have to get oxygenated to avoid atrophy, and these first weeks seem to be critical.
