Customer Question

I am a 55 year old man. I believe in good health. Not on any medications and have
no serious illness. I am not overweight and
I train 3-4 times a week. But, i notice my erection is not as full as in my youth. A friend
suggested i try something he uses and gave
me a cialis tablet. The effect was immediate
lasting.I did not notice any side effects, only
the one I was looking for. I am wanting to know what is the correct dosage and order
a months supply. I have sex approximately
5 to 7 times a month.

Hi--before I discuss Cialis with you, are you not planning to see your doctor about getting the medication?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Is that a question or suggestion.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
Well, the reason I asked is that we don't provide prescriptions here. I can discuss dosage and possible side effects and contraindications with you but for a licensed US physician to prescribe this medication to an unseen patient would be putting that license in jeopardy.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Understand! So, yes I would consult a physician.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
OK--so did you want to know about dosage and possible contraindications for Cialis?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes, thank you.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 4 years ago.
OK--just to make certain here--have you had a recent physical check up with a doctor and blood work just to make sure you don't have any medical conditions?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No, I guess I will make an appointment this week. You know, I may not
have a problem.....I am just not 22 years old anymore. It was not like an

overnight issue. Just noticed it was not the same. It is not like I fail to get

an erection. It is just not as strong.

OK First off, do you understand that there can be medical conditions that cause ED beyond the simple "getting older" part?
