How do you ask your doctor for viagra?

I don't see my doctor until middle of july.


Guys with high blood pressure probably have poor circulation to the penis. I heard viagra improves this. Anyways, I have poor circulation to the penis I guess and when Im with my girlfriend and I want it to grow up...but it doesn't....

Re: How do you ask your doctor for viagra?

In general, it is best to tell your Dr. what your symptoms are & let them come up with the solution. The Doctor's show on X-M radio just discussed this problem. The Cardio Docs said that a patient coming in with erection problems needs to have a evaluation for cardiac problems before using Viagra. I got the feeling that Viagra could be dangerous if you have a cardiac issue. Fam

Re: How do you ask your doctor for viagra?

Viagra should be your last resort dear, because once you use it you will get no erections without it anymore. I think you should try supplements first, Magnesium - Ginko - Genseng (but it might increase your blood pressure) and other supplements.

Also note that your problem might be a side effect from your high BP medication, I'm only 27 and have tried most of the medications myself. Many of them caused impotence, now I'm no Ditiazem which I can say it has no side effects on me at all. I love it !!!
What medication you are on?

Your doctor will probably want to exam you and run some blood tests.
Try your best to avoid the Erectile dysfunction drugs. They may create other problems with vision, heart rate and dependency. If all else fails, well OK.
Your problem probably stems from a medication you are currently taking. Most men before taking medications for HBP had no problems with sexual functioning. Regardless of whether they were aware or not of their blood pressure levels, continued to function normally. Once you become a patient and are prescribed medications, between the worry of your condition and the medications you are being prescribed, your libido and sexual function begins to deteriorate. The drugs which did not give me problems with sexual function were: Valsartan (Diovan), Toprol XL and currently Bystolic (Nebivolol). When first starting the medications, till your body adjusts you may have some issues with function. This will improve. All blood pressure medications and classes have the potential to cause sexual problems. Some worse than others.

Statin drugs for cholesterol lowering also cause ED. Didn't know if you were taking them also.
