over the counter ED help

Postby L&D » Tue May 28, 2013 10:25 am

I am in my mid forties and have noticed a drop in erection quality over the last few years . Sadly my wonderful wife of 23 years has noticed it also . For the last year or so, I have been using a product available from GNC called Vitalikor. This worked very well using only half the recommended dosage,suddenly my erections were VERY firm again, it was as if I was taking cialis or one of the other prescription brands . Recently, I ran out and returned to GNC to purchase more. For whatever reason, it no longer does anything at all. I am guessing a reformulation for whatever reason, because from my old bottle to the new ......night and day. Needless to say, I am very concerned. The prescription meds are very expensive, and my insurance doesn't cover them. These over the counter pills were cheap enough that I really didn't have to worry if I took one and it turned out that I had mis-read DWs mood at the time.Does anyone here know of anything else out there that works ! I am not trying to turn this into a thread for hawking someones product, but this is a marriage bed forum, and this is definitely an issue with me. Thanks you all sooo much in advance for any help or advice !

More than likely (although I haven't looked at that specific product), it did contain the drug that Cialis and Viagra are made from, and the FDA found out and yanked it off the market. A very similar thing happened to a product called Prolatis a few years ago. They "reformulated" it so that it would pass FDA muster, but of course that meant taking out the sudenafil, which was the only ingredient that actually helped erections.

Most of the stuff that is OTC for erections is a pure waste of time, and the side effects can be downright deadly! If you haven't gone to a doctor yet to get checked out for underlying causes of your ED, do that today!!! I speak from experience, as most of my ED was caused by heart problems that almost got me to an early grave at 50!

Barring those problems, though, the best "fix" for ED if you can't afford the prescription drugs (or like me, detested the side effects) is to read this threadand order the Erektor. It works, has zero side effects, and TMB members get a huge discount on it! :D

If the issue is low-T, there are some very low cost alternatives available. If ED drugs are needed, you can order the name brand drugs from reputable Canadian pharmacies for very reasonable prices. You can go even cheaper by ordering Indian made generics. It is not illegal to order these for personal use. Customs won't allow more than a 3 month supply.

Generic cialis and viagra can be purchased through legit Canadian pharmacies. The FDA does allow small purchases to be delivered to the US.

This link will help verify which pharmacies are legit and which ones are scams. Legit pharmacies WILL require a prescription from your doctor.

Ok guys , thank you all for your help ! Looks like a doctor visit is in my future. I consider myself in pretty decent shape, but who knows what can't be seen! I did have a vasectomy years ago, and it was after this procedure that my wife first made a comment about my erection quality. I had my testosterone tested about a year ago and it was around 375 or so,which is the low end of normal I believe. That particular doctor would hear nothing of trying to get me to the high end of normal, or anything else for that matter! I take no meds at this point , and blood pressure is always perfect. I am on the preferred list with my life insurance company. Very frustrated !!!!!!!!!

Get another doctor. My doctor has been very helpful in this area. We are the same age and he understands the issues of Low T and ED. He was the one who actually brought up the LOW T issue and always has me checked.

And that's the problem. The mechanism for erections is fairly simple, but can be substantially influenced by all sorts of conditions that otherwise might not get noticed. They are finding out that erection quality is actually a fairly good barometer of a man's overall health, and can help reveal conditions that might otherwise go undetected!

I did have a vasectomy years ago, and it was after this procedure that my wife first made a comment about my erection quality.


And here's the other side of the coin. Although some guys have no problems after a vasectomy, others do (I'm in that camp as well!). I don't know if certain nerves get cut that shouldn't be or what happens, but there does seem to be growing anecdotal evidence that not all vasectomies are as good as they are made out to be!

I had my testosterone tested about a year ago and it was around 375 or so,which is the low end of normal I believe.

375 is pretty low. Do you have any other symptoms, such as fatigue, weight gain, lack of concentration, or depression-like symptoms? Sometimes a doctor will take it more seriously if other things are manifesting themselves rather than a guy "just" complaining about a drop in libido or erection quality.

Hi Guys;
Just checked out the canadian pharmacies. We are still talking eight bucks a pill (4 pills) Cialis generic. I know that is (I guess) reasonable, but much more than I could pay. Is importing from the indian pharmacies legal for personal use (I am in USA).

Sorry, you need to recheck or maybe check other Canadian pharmacies. I know for sure that generic Cialis and Viagra is typically less than $2/pill. The Indian produced products work fine.

I checked an India site and they said that the tadifil is not for consumption in the US. Do things like this mean that it is illegal to by there? I will check the link you gave.

You cannot purchase generic Cialis or Viagra in the US. However, the FDA DOES allow small amounts to be imported for "personal use" (i.e. Not for resale). One Canadian pharmacy that has a good track record is Quality Prescription Drugs. You must have a US prescription. They do not presently list generics on their website, but they do sell it. You will have to call them for information. Some of the other legit pharmacies do list generics and prices.
