We both enjoy sex and in here absence I used to masturbate 2-3 times. Now nearly a month passed sometimes after I get aroused and fully erect . I feel that i can't keep an erection firm enough and sometimes its normal. Recently a month back I heard about Ranbaxy Caverta. I purchased caverta 100Mg with out any doctors advice and had it three days consequently and had sex. It was wonderful and enjoyed a lot.

Erectile dysfunction

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query

Erectile dysfunction is common in middle aged males especially if they are diabetic. Here are my following suggestions

1. You can take tab Caverta however 100mg is a very high dose. I recommend that you start with a smaller dose like 25 mg after completely getting evaluated by a doctor.
2. common side effects are headaches, diarrhea, dyspepsia.
3. I also suggest you to exercise daily, stop tobacco and most importantly eat a health diet
4 . Yoga and meditation is something I recommend to all my patients, it not only helps with erectile dysfunction but also brings down blood pressure

I hope I was of help, please get back to me for any information you need

Using Caverta once a month will not cause long term side effects.
It is a prescription drug, since you are a diabetic and a hypertensive I strongly suggest you get an echo and an ECG done before using this drug.

Brief Answer:
Can take Caverta

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for getting back with details

I shall answer your questions in points so that I dont miss anything

1. It is excellent to know that you have got your full body check up dont recently, if nothing is wrong then please go ahead and use Caverta. It is the only drug that can be used for erectile dysfunction which works so beautifully. The other alternatives are tadalafil and vardenafil. But please continue with Caverta. For general well being your doctor has already prescribed renerve plus, continue taking that. I also recommend that you take cap becosules. Please get your Vit D levels checked, most indians are deficient in it and require replacement.

2. Renerve plus is a multivitamin, usually given in long standing diabetics for protection of the nerves. It usually started when patients complain of tingling sensation of the toes

3. There is no long term side effects if it is used once a month. It is a safe drug which will get eliminated from your system soon. It will not harm your erection later in life. Many of my patients use it and have a very nice sex life. Please dont use it more than twice a week.

I hope I answered your questions well and to your expectations

I ve had Fibromyalgia for about 25 years now and am doing so bad it s scary. I ve changed my diet over the years and eat really well, vegetarian, no nightshades, all organics, well balanced. I meditate and do Yoga and started pool therapy but I become a wreck, even when I take it easy. My mind is going. Memory loss and confusion and balance is awful. About 4 years ago I had a fall and got Complex Regional Pain Syndrome to go with it. My chronic sinusitis has become unbearable with roaring in my ears and insane sinusitis. At 58, I m getting scared my mind days are numbered. Sincerely, R. Jane Gagner
