Well, the Rize 2 that did work for me was found to have a form of sildenafil in them. I have no idea how much, but they would work for 2 days if I took 1/2 capsule and 3 days if I took the whole capsule. The whole capsule would give me a mild headache and some stuffiness for a day. Viapro was about the same. It was not bad enough to detract though. The first 2 times I tried Viagra, I tried 25 mg and it did nothing. The next 2 times I tried Viagra, I tried an entire 50 mg pill and it worked some, but not as well as 1/2 Viapro or Rize 2. A few days ago I tried Viagra 50 mg again and it was fantastic. I was bigger and harder than I had been for 20 years. My wife said that she didn't remember it being like that when we first started dating 29 years ago. Perhaps we just like a bit more roughness than we did back then. It might also be because of the Androgel that I am on. I tried the Viagra the first 4 times before I got on Androgel and now I have been on it for over 2 months.
By the way, I did get stuffiness, but no headache at all with the Viagra.
I still don't understand why the Viapro and Rize 2 last 2 to 3 days and the Viagra only lasts a few hours. It did still have some effect the next day, but not like the 2 "herbal" products. After the Viagra 50 mg worked so well, I again tried 25 mg. It worked some, but didn't make much difference. I really don't need anything, except that I often have trouble going soft during foreplay and oral on my wife and sometimes when changing positions. We have to stop and get "little buddy" ready again. We can live with that (sometimes even fun), but sometimes we just want no concerns, like when she has a bit to drink on a Friday night and is more sexual than normal.
I didn't get any samples of Cialis from my doc because my insurance doesn't cover it. Well, it covers it, but the co-pay is 95% of the retail cost.
I tried yohimbe a few months ago, but all it did was raise my blood pressure. The generic versions of the 3 ED drugs from India are not legal in the US, although people do buy them. I think they are in the UK because of the difference in patent laws. I have no idea about Australia. The generic versions are about 1/5 the price in the US if a person wants to risk it. My insurance covers about 55% of the cost of Viagra, but only for 4 pills a month. Getting the 100 mg ones and splitting them would give me 8 times. I haven't gotten the prescription filled yet, as I still have one 50 mg sample pill left. I want to make sure that it works as well as it did a 2nd time.
I know a lady in the UK who's boyfriend takes VigRX and she says that it works really well for him, with better performance and better orgasms for him, but he is in his 20s and has no problem without it. I have no idea if it would do anything for us though. It is also expensive and is supposed to be taken every day. Doesn't sound like the solution that we are looking for.
I really did like the Viagra the last time. I was patting myself on the back for an hour afterwards.
My wife was pretty happy too, but she said that she liked the results of the Rize 2 and the Viapro better. She said that I was almost too hard with the Viagra. I have seen some past posts where the guys like Viagra the best and their partners like Cialis the best, so I guess my wife is not unusual. Viagra is really an ego booster for us guys. My wife was laughing at me because I was smiling so much.
Keep me posted if you find something new, even if you just see it on the web. I'll do the same.
