I have earlier enquired on XXXXXXX about my high refractory period. I was asked to try Tadalafil/Sildenafil. I've been using Megalis 10, which works very well. Unfortunately, it also gives me a slight headache. Are there lower dosages available in India, and would those help?

The second problem that I have is that while tadalafil helps me get an erection quite quickly after I've ejaculated, I stilldon't have the sexual desire to go again. I guess it takes me more than 5 hours to want to have sex again. Dr XXXXXXX Sundarakumar recommended that I could try Bupropion, apart from the Tadalafil. Would that help? Would that conflict with my existing medication? I have uploaded some reports here earlier. My testosterone was on the lower side of the range. Would using a testosterone gel help?

Thanks for the query

Having headache after using Tardalafil/Sildenafil is not unusual. If it happens regularly and is significant, it would be a good idea to check for blood pressure then. Because Tardalafil intake increases blood flow to penile blood vessels thereby causing a relative decrease in blood flow to brain thereby causing headache.

The minimum effective dose for Tardalafil is 10 mg/day. To minimize post coital headache: you can consider increase water intake, avoid pillow after intercourse, one can keep lie down with the level of head below lower limbs (this will increase blood flow to brain during that period); may be a good idea to not to use daily rather alternate days.

Not having sexual desire in post coital phase (refractive period) varies from individual to individual, even may be hours

I would recommend to understand well about sexual cycle and its various phases rather than depending too much on medications

Hope I am of some help in addressing your concerns.

For the time being one can refrain away from testosterone
wish you a good sexual life
