Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Can i take cialis and atripla
I can not get a strong erection or even maintain the erection for any length of time and my doctor has given me a priscribtion for Cialis and I want to make sure is should be using this with the once a day Atripla and it it will have any side effects if I take both drugs
- Can enoxaparin be cause of impotence
I was active in sex relationship and performing sufficiently well. Because of a plane trip I was given one injection of Enoxaparin (Clexane' 40mg) for thrombosis prevention. I noticed a lack of libido and impotence . After one month I was given the second injection for the return trip. For the first week I noticed a return of sex desires and good erection. After the second week I experience again lack of libido and full impotence which still persisting after 6 weeks from the return fight.
- How many days in a row can you safely take imitrex?
I have SUNCT Syndrome attacks daily for 2-6 weeks, then they go into remission for 5-16 mos. During the attacks I take nasal Imitrex as a rescue. No more than 40mg/day, but how many days in a row can I take it? It's the only thing that helps and a 15 minute attack is way better than a 6 hour attack.
- How long after stopping crestor did the vertigo stop?
Took Crestor (5 mg every other day as a beginning dose) for two months when symptoms began. Doctor thought it was an inner ear infection and sent me to an ENT doc. He ordered a brain scan which was OK. Vertigo was never mentioned by any of my doctors as a potential cause of the vertigo and other symptoms. I have stopped Crestor.
- Reoccurring ovarian remnants? is there another answer? (1 answer)
Besides depot Lupron, has anyone has relief from recurring cysts and endometriosis from ovarian remnant syndrome? I have had 7 surgeries trying to remove these elusive remnants. Needless to say I am not excited to do more surgery and no doctor wants to either. In the past depot Lupron has had more side effects than I can handle-including depression.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

- Imitrex and vasomotor rhinitis
I have vasomotor rhinitis that triggers migraines. I am sinsitive to smells and the air feels so thin that it triggers a migraine every time. So when i get a migraine of course i take my imitrex. So i got to thinking, if imitrex is a vaso constrictor then it should work on my vasomotor rhinitis, which means that my sinuses are dilated. So now when i feel my vasomotor rhinitis acting up, i have gone ahead and taken my imitrex and it has actually prevented a migraine. I now use my imitrex as treatment for my masomotor rhinitis. Lucky for me it may be once a month that i have to treat it.

- Blood in semen 3 times after taking viagra
On three separate occasions, after using Viagra, I had large amounts of blood in my semen. This condition slowed down but each time produced blood in ejaculate for a period of 3 months EACH TIME. I went to a doctor each time, was tested for everything, ultrasounds , prostate, infection, all came back normal. PSA low etc. Each incident I took a Viagra and during sex I ejaculated semen. I waited a month, masturbated and everything was fine,, had sex and there was red blood in my precum. Finally after 3 months it stopped. The second time it occurred I was concerned and went back to the doctor to be told I was fine. The third time, it was directly related to Viagra. I can take Cialis without a problem. No one seems to say it is the Viagra,,, except my body
