Or just stop it

User :   I will surely adopt the life style changes as you advised.
Doctor :   Right approach

Doctor :  
You are very likely to see changes
User :   but is there any thing that you can prescribe/advice right now for me to enjoy sex untll the results are coming naturally?
Doctor :   As it is mostly awary Viagra(Sildenafil) is the treatment of choice

Doctor :  
But should be taken on prescription only
Doctor :  
Get your BP measure before starting it
Doctor :  
And do tell the doctor regarding the medications you are taking
Doctor :  
Also I would suggest a nutritional supplement to boost it
Doctor :  
You can take Supractiv 1 tab daily after breakfast
Doctor :  
It has Selenium and Zinc components which is essential for Sexual health
User :   Ok..please advice on the correct usage / dosage of Viagra and precautions...
User :   supractiv for how many days should I take?
Doctor :   As I said that it should be taken on prescription only
Doctor :

Doctor :  
Supractiv you can continue
Doctor :  
It does not have any side effects
Doctor :  
It is good to continue it
User :   ok
Doctor :  
And also if you are not a diabetic I advise you to take honey
Doctor :  
Around 10 ml/day
User :   Ok Doc
is there any thing which is close to Viagra in terms of composition which I can take?
Doctor :   It is a good and experimented medication

Doctor :  
So, that is the better choice
Doctor :  
But if you quit smoking then nothing would be required
Doctor :  
Thats what I strongly feel
User :   ohh is it doc?
Doctor :   Yes

Doctor :  
Sure on that
Doctor :  
And ofcourse exercise to accelerate the process
Doctor :  
and to decrease stress, if any
User :   what kinda exercise do you suggest Doc?... Stress - yes offcourse it is there...can't help it!
Doctor :   Yes, it is a part of life

Doctor :  
Brisk walking in the morning
Doctor :  
It is quite good, natural and free
User :   I normally sleep for about 5 hours only, But almost sound one. Does that has any thing to do...?
Doctor :   Not directly but ofcourse through stress

Doctor :  
as you are having a good sleep, it is fine
Doctor :  
Try to increase it to 6 hours
Doctor :  
which is the Ideal
Doctor :  
6 hours of sleep means, you will need to be on bed for 7 hours or atleast 6 and half hours
User :   yes.ok
Doctor :   Do you have any other queries?

Doctor :  
Should be taken 30 mins before the act
User :   what are the short term and lon term side effects? how many times in a week can I take?
Doctor :   Headache, facial flushing

Doctor :  
Drop in BP
Doctor :  
Thats why I suggested you to get your BP checked before starting it
User :   ok
User :   Do I still need to consult any Sexologist/Doctor on my condition? Any thing from /to my wife? should I need to discuss this with her?
Doctor :   It is always good if you discuss your problem with your wife first

Doctor :  
and try the measures I suggested along with Supractiv tabs
User :   ok
Doctor :  
and even then if required you may consult a Sexologist
User :   but there are more money making/quaks than the real and gunine ones....

They are not Sexologists
Doctor :  
You can consult a person like a Urologist who is trained in the field

A urologist is more than sufficient
User :   ok

Doctor :  
on Newspapers/TV
User :   No No ..what I meant was...even the qualified Docs, the issue being very sensitive , will try to make it more serious than it is actually....
