From this study (1 year ago):
I took this drug for a brief time in the second grade. Very soon I started having headaches, water retention, etc. I was taken to the hospital and was in there a week recovering from near kidney failure. Starting in my teen years to the present time I have trouble achieving and maintaining a erection, my desire is 1/10th of my friends my age, and even with the use of viagra/cialis I don't have a normal working penis.
