I would like to see if it would be o.k. to take viagra or not
From this study (4 years ago):
I was taking the amount that the bottle said I could. The maximum daily amount for joint pain. The doctor suggested I use Ibuprofen. I was using beyond the two weeks recommended on the bottle since my joint problem is chronic. After a few weeks I noticed It would give me impotence for a couple days after taking only one tablet. Then when I took tylenol for the joint pain
instead the tylenol reacted in the same way. Also , now, if I take antihistamines such as those in cold medecines I get the same problem. Now, I stick to natural relief of cough and cold symptoms.
