Took my first dose of Cialis


#16

I have been taking viagra for a while with good results. The thing is its no good to be on that the rest of your life and its not fixing the problem.


#17

You are right. My hope is now that maybe finding the right dosage and staying on it long enough can give my nerves a chance to calm down. I am still slowly having movements forward. So I am still hesitant to do anything surgical or even get a block for the matter.

How often do you take it? And how much?


#18

I take half of the lowest dose 12.5mg but viagra mg are different to cialis dosage as viagra is short lasting and cialis is long. I only do 1 per week when lifes unbearable between tramadol, targin, and other meds.


#19

Haven’t tried the others you have mentioned. I can manage with out the Cialis but now I have tried it. It has made things better. For everyone here these are probably all looked at as diagnostic but that being said if surgery is out this is better than nothing I guess…


#20

So taking ever other day has beneficial. I still yet to take a full dose in a single day. It has calmed my epy pain. Although achy and I still can’t be very active as in walking to long or jumping say or running. It is quiet the difference.

It has allowed me to feel the pain in the cut sites seems to be the main pain issues. When it hurts particularly it tends to make everything hurt worst.

I would suggest to anyone thinking about it to use this at least as one more diagnostic tool in the box to help you determine where the pain is coming from.

Thanks! Good to hear it’s helpful.

For everyone’s benefit, Dr. Parekatill definitely believes in the pain reduction power of Cialis to the point that he’s having a local pharmacy mix generic tadalafil with oxytocin (muscle relaxant). It costs $125/month, but that’s less than brand-name Cialis, so I ordered and just received a month’s supply. My pain levels have been pretty low, even non-existent this week, so I’m hesitant to add something new to the mix. I am still taking 50mg Elavil per day and might wean off that first and then introduce the Cialis.


#22

So your pain is non-existant? That’s great.

I have been taking a little Gabapentin the last few days and have ordered some of the compounded mix with Cialis and Oxytocin.

The thing that intrigued me was the Oxytocin. I had read a while back that oxytocin is an important hormone for bonding and relationship building so I am hopeful that will help.

Since my gut problems really took off I have felt off, which kind of reinforces to me the importance of gut health for regulation of well being. It will be interesting for me to see how that makes me feel.


#23

I wouldn’t say non-existentbut it has helped dial it back a bit. The chord pain still is as high as it still gets.

But worth a shot I think. It may work more for others depending on your issues.


#24

I am getting this “special mixture” as well. I’ll see how it goes. The key for me right now is preventing inflammatory processes as I heal post-reversal (7 weeks ago)


#25

This is all very exciting, this new mixture, really really hope it helps ! I’ll be watching for results.


#26

So I will say after taking a dose everyday for this past week my epy pain has died down. BUT another thing has come into play. I am no longer employed and no longer have a 40 min drive to work and 40 min drive back anymore. Let alone a 10min walk X 2 everyday. SO that may have something to do with it as well.

I think the meds are helping but still not the end result I was looking for. I wanted it to let me be more active but that doesn’t seem to the case.

I am curious though if TRUE cialis would work better if it has some better bonding agent when taken.


#27

I wanted to report after 5 days of taking the cialis/oxytocin compounded medicine prescribed in Dr. P’s clinic.

It has helped me. I don’t know how sustainable it is but my pain levels are down quite a bit.

I am worried the efficacy will wear out so I may cut back on weekends when I’m not in a chair.

A day without out pain is a good day.


#28

It surely works but i want to know why? I am thinking blood flow to region but why does more blood flow take pain away?


#29

@Loz Hypoxia…


#30

The more blood flow the more oxygen to the tissues. The pelvic pain specialist at Cleveland recommends 30 min hot baths nightly to increase blood flow to the pelvis basically this pill is doing it for you.

Hi Mike
Please give an update about cialis/oxytocin compounded medicine.
I’m curious


#32

It seemed to help a lot at first. I usually take a half a dose a morning. I am definitely going to keep filling this. It’s kind of pricey but I feel like it’s worth it. I have not used it to bone my wife yet. I took one morning and we found ourselves alone in our house one afternoon (no kids which is rare) so I suggested we go up and sure enough I was able to produce a bat with little effort lol but she had to go pick up a kid so I didn’t get to put it to work.
It does not make me pain free 100% but it helps quite a bit so it’s nice to have in the arsenal for when I need to break glass. I only take it in the morning. I don’t want a raging hardon to keep me up when I hit REM sleep and I suspect this stuff will do that.


#33

I’ve taken this too. It’s been a good medicine.


#34

So. I have been taking it ever other day it does help some. But not enough to stop looking for a better solution.
It has helped my epy pain a bit. But my surgical site still aches and seem to be the bigger of the two problems now. Because if I lay wrong during the night I pay for it that day.

I still find some relief from getting off time to time. Any one think maybe the chords because we have less sex and they are weakened from the procedure, that atrophy starts to set in?

Hi Mike.
You mentioned in a previous post that you struggled with neurological issues (brain fog, dizziness etc). Did cialis / ozytocin also help with this?
