Bob has a limp today

Won't be long now.

It's being recalled because it actually contains an ingredient that might work. A real drug instead of the usual placebo!

Yeah baby, you think you can handle all 4 inches of this semi-erect, flopping meat cannon? Huh? I'm gonna cram this half-filled water balloon into you so hard, you're gonna beg for more.... aw yeah baby.... lemme just shoehorn this sucker in there....oh yea.... I'm gonna plug you up like a stick of warm butter, baby..... yeaarrrrrrghh!!!!

Livin' large and laughin' easy.

Why would a man with erectile dysfunction want to supplement it? And what would he supplement it with - premature ejaculation?
 
2012-02-28 01:25:00 PM  
If he isn't smiling, does he keep a stiff upper lip? Because I've heard a more obscure slang term for that is to keep a stiff pecker.
 
2012-02-28 01:31:05 PM  
Does he still have a sackful of pride?

Will always smile.

Interesting. An erectile dysfunction med that lowers blood pressure while giving a solid hard-on? Replace Bob with say Fat Albert and their product may work for the benefit.

Erectile dysfunction supplement recalled...fondly.
Yeah, old headline, but it makes me laugh.

Your comment reminded me of something I've wondered about. Blood pressure medications can leave a man unable to get it up and can kill his desire. The current medications have so many side-effects that patient compliance is an issue. Yet these ED medications lower blood pressure and let him get a teenager's throbber of an erection. Why not look at giving these drugs in lower daily doses to help control blood pressure? They appear to be much safer and, if combined with dietary changes and moderate exercise, they could be a welcome alternative to the treatment of hypertension.

TADAlafil



Sorta like onomatopoeia, but not quite.

They actually are not safer and from what ive heard, you build up a tolerance

Google search says Sears is the online retailer of choice in non prescription purchase. 30 tabs for $28.

After seeing Bob's wife I know why he needs drugs to get an erection.

I believe you can say that about most medicines. Its all about the person.

First BP med I took almost killed me, while most people taking it (according to my doctor) never experienced side effects from it. Tried Lisinopril really F-'d me up. Imagine working out, but not able to get your heart rate above 90 even if worked out for hours (kicker is, it isn't a beta blocker as that is a common symptom of those). Then Atenolol, which made me feel like crap most of the time (think of smoking 2 indica joints to the face and trying to function -- same feeling). Benicar, awesome BP drug for me, but very very expensive (100 bux per 30 day with insurance) however the effect died down 4th month in, but by that time I was off of the regiment anyways.

For me, there are issues with (thus far) 85% of the meds I have taken, one of which would have killed me had I not been at the DRs when I began taking it. If the ED drug helps with both that and BP without the side effects hell, I'd side with that.

Well, the original intent was that tadalafil was going to a blood pressure medicine. The erection-inducing properties didn't show up until they were testing on people during drug trials and they redirected it.

The thing is, as an ED drug they can charge a LOT for it, per pill. Once someone can get a prescription for 60 pills a month with a minor co-pay, the profit margin decreases quite a bit. And it's hard to avoid it being distributed that way once that sort of prescription is codified as acceptable.

Enzyte Bob has been pretty stiff since he died in a boating accident a few years ago.

Most BP meds scare the hell out of me. And docs today prescribe them at a drop of a hat without first trying more conservative management approaches. The last time I went to a doc, my BP was 144/88. Now that lower number, the diastolic pressure, is a wee bit high for me, but nothing to worry about for a guy my age. But the doc was all "OMFG! You have high blood pressure and I want to start you on medication." Excuse me? My answer was, of course, "are you out of your farking mind? It isn't going to happen, chief."

I haven't heard of anyone developing a tolerance to them, but I suppose it is possible. I know that Viagra is now used to treat pulmonary hypertension and it is being studied because it seems to increase exercise tolerance in people with heart disease.

there's a 'little man in the boat' joke in there somewhere...

I'm sorry - this is for Grable's daughter:

I've got the biggest erection in the world!

Exercise and stop smoking. That would take care of most cases of ED in men under 40.

Not just possible, it happens somewhat frequently, although I don't have any stats to back that up. After those don't work any longer, the next stop is Trimix injections, which eventually cause scar tissue in the corpus cavernosum. The last choice, but perhaps the most effective treatment is this (keep your knees together):
