I am taking 10 mg of Cialis daily, and it is costing me a small fortune. Any suggestions on getting it generically? I believe it still can't be bought through alldaychemist.com (I do get generic Viagra and Levitra from alldaychemist.com)

any reason you have to use Cialis? could you not just use one of the other drugs for recovery and therapy?

Just wondering,

Yes. The UCLA Urology ED specialist has me on daily Cialis, pentoxifylline and L-arginine. For peyronie's.

StriclyInc,

Many Peyronie's specialists will choose Levitra or Viagra over Cialis.

Paul's specialist lets the man make his own choice ...another example.

My head is full of all sorts of useful AND usless trivia :>)

Well, I went to the ED specialist again today, and he said he doesn't care which of the 3 (Cialis, Levitra or Viagra) I take. When I asked him a few months ago, he said Cialis only. Oh well. Tomorrow I will switch to Viagra.

On the down side, he said that I am unlikely to get any better recovery of erections at this point (17 months and a few days post prostatectomy). According to him (Dr. Jacob Rajfer, UCLA), it is rare for men to improve after 18 months. darn.

StrictlyInc,
Hi!
Don't get discouraged, I am 64 yrs old and 26 months post lap and I am now seeing a difference. Viagra wasn't doing much for me so I tried the Tri-Mix, that worked but I also ached. Then just over a year ago or so I tried Bi-mix and it worked with no ache. I started with 1/2 cc and have cut back to about 1/10 cc over the last 4 months. Now at 1/10 cc per erection, that's just over $1.00 per erection. Now my ED doctor wants me back on Viagra 50mg with/with out sex twice a week and then 100mg 2 hours before sex once a week. I am still using the bi-mix as well.
Thanks for the alldaychemist.com Information, I just checked it out. WoW....great prices, I will order from them from now on!
You can get Cialis generic from canadianmedsworld.com but their prices aren't nearly as goos as alldaychemist.com.

How many times have you used alldaychemist.com. Have you ever had any problems with them?

Thanks,
Kirk

Correction, in my last post here I said I used tri-mix, It was caverject that I tried, not Tri-mix.
I also tried MUSE which is a Intraurethral suppository, I had the ache with that too.

Answering Kirk's question, I just re-ordered the viagra equivalent from alldaychemist. It arrived via registered mail (which i didn't request) about two weeks later. No problems. As to ED recovery time, I just checked in with my dr who also says that "as a general rule" whatever recovery you're going to get has probably occurred by 18 months. Others on this forum, like Kirk, report continued improvement beyond 18 months. I remember one guy wrote in that he continued to improve even after 2+ years. We both need to stay hopeful!

Well, we'll see. I have some hope, though to be honest, it is diminishing.

As for alldaychemist.com - I have ordered from them once, and they were easy to deal with.
