hi,
welcome to healthcaremagic forum
women canot take viagra,this is exclusivly for men actualy in erectile dysfunction
but don't worry female viagra is already launched 'alura'.Alura is a cream that can be applied externally. It has LArginine, an amino acid that assists in the relaxation of muscle and Methol that creates a pleasurable, warm tingle. This sensitises the area and enhances the entire experience for women.but it is not yet available in open market so consult a gynecologist/sexologist about its availability.any way these are all realy mean to menopausal women

Viagra is very effective and fast acting -- it typically boosts blood flow within 30 minutes to several hours -- but some people prefer non-drug alternatives. Is there an alternative to Viagra, something more natural like an herb or supplement? And are any of these safe? Not every man requires the magic touch of Viagra; sometimes all one needs is a healthy diet, exercise and a little of Mother Nature s touch. Several interesting supplements have recently come to light and may provide benefits within days to weeks. Ginkgo Biloba: An herb that is commonly taken as a memory booster may provide benefits. It presumably acts by enhancing blood flow and seems relatively free of side effects. In a study conducted at the University of California, ginkgo reversed sexual problems in 84% of men who were taking antidepressant drugs such as Prozac. The ones who might benefit from it are men on Prozac or other antidepressants. The suggested dose is 80 mg three times a day, standardized to contain 24% flavone glycosides and 6% terpene lactones. Arginine: An amino acid that also enhances blood flow. In a study of 50 men at Tel Aviv University, 31% of those with impotence improved after six weeks of taking arginine. The ones who might benefit from it are men who have circulatory disorders that may be contributing to sexual problems. The suggested dose is 1 gram three times a day; sold as L-arginine. As with Viagra, you should avoid arginine if you are taking the heart medication nitroglycerin because the combination may cause a dangerous drop in blood pressure. For the same reason, you should probably not take arginine with Viagra. DHEA: This supplement may also provide benefits for men who have low levels of this hormone. DHEA helps our bodies make estrogen and testosterone, and a recent trial at the University of Vienna found it helped men with impotence. The suggested dose is 5 mg each morning for men. Yohimbe: Some studies have shown that this herb may correct impotence. However, this herb can cause a

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?

get viagra or something along those lines.. and i was just wondering if i could

go to my doctors and if they could prescribe it to me for him to use? obviously

his problem effects me a lot aswell.
