Has Cialis Stopped Working for Me?

I took a month+ off of Cialis because it was losing its efficacy for me. Having to take 40-80mg to get any effect (even morning wood).

The good news is, since not taking it, if I take care of myself, I can get a great long lasting erection on my own finally! The bad news, I tried taking Cialis again after 40 or so days off, and 20mg does nothing.

Do I have some sort of permanent tolerance to it? I’m only 35 so while my urologist has mentioned injectables, I don’t want to go anywhere near that for another 30 or more years.

More time off? Is it possible my Cialis has gone bad? It’s probably half a year old (US generics), and probably 3 years old for the Indian brand shit.

Try getting some new stuff, Cialis brand name stuff. Its expensive, but the experiment is worth it. You only have to buy a few. Then try Levitra. Its the ultimate ED drug.

I had REALLY great luck with Indian levitra at first but it burned out very quickly. I could ask for a small script for it.

Cialis has worked amazingly for me for years. Maybe it is the generics.

Update - holding off on this. Cialis is up to nearly $100 for a single 20mg tablet. Yikes.

I’ve never heard levitra is all that great.

I’m taking it you’ve had great luck with it?

It did something extravagant the first handful of times I took it. Similar to the libido boost Cialis gives me, times about 10. Hasn’t happened since.

Wow. Never heard cialis doing this!

I’ve never heard of this either. There is no data saying Cialis boosts libido. My guess is some get a libido boost from it because the reason they have low libido is performance anxiety.

$100 for a single tablet? How are you getting this? There are plenty of sites out there where you can get it much cheaper. Can get 14 6mg tabs for $50 through bluechew. Even that is pretty expensive compared to what most pay. I get a script for 4 20mg pills for $40.

Checkout the GoodRX app for your phone. It has a coupon code for me to get 90x20mg tadalafil for $73 at walmart. $52 at Kroger Pharmacy, but I don’t have one of those near me

Do you bypass insurance? I am wondering if insurance is why I am paying so much. If I submit the prescription without insurance and pay out of pocket I can get that price through goodrx? I am assuming I only get 4 a month and pay $40 is because of insurance.

Yes, you use the discount coupon instead of going through insurance.

Thanks for this info. This is great. According to the app I can get 90 5mg tabs for $14.08. Seems unbelievable.

Yeah it does seem wild. Check the prices for the other sizes. You can subdivide rhe pills, so if 90x10mg is less than double, that might be the way to go, if you can get the script.

I check all my meds with it now vs insurance.

I decided to do a 6 month run with 2.5mg of Cialis. It was very consistent and there were nights when erections were more disruptive to my sleep than fun, but I was benefiting from having extended periods of nocturnal erections so no real complaints. I weaned myself off and went for a month without needing it for any reason. Got back on It for health benefits and when I mentioned it to my brother, he gave me a levitra. The difference is noticeable. No sides, just a seamless state of constant blood flow to your dick.

Levitra combined with cialis is like porn star boners. I used to have a source for liquid levitra but he stopped making it. On “date night” I would add that to my regular cialis and my wife is like “what the hell is that?”

Is that Brand Cialis though?

Oh I normally get 30x20mg for about $20, but it’s generic. I’ve tried 3 different brands with the same results. I haven’t had brand name in years though.

Now that levitra seems to be generic, maybe I’ll give it a shot. I had some Indian levitra, but it completely stopped working.

Oddly enough when I’ve combined the two I’ve had more failed launches than without any meds - really strange. Maybe from the BP drop? Who knows.
