Assuming you don't already have low blood pressure (who does??) you can always take the full dose of any of the ED meds -- check with your Doc if you have any doubts. I've been using all three for 10 months with nothing much to show. I have mentioned before that most Docs know that nothing is going to happen no matter how much you take in the early months so why waste the money using full doses? Of course since a full dose costs the same as a half dose you should at least ask your doc to go full dose so you can cut them. BUT your insurance might insist paying only for say 15 x 5mg cialis per month. That is what Medco allows for me. I accept them just to stretch my ADC stash. You can always try a full dose once a week or something just to check if it helps. You wouldn't want to be moping along on half dose only to realize more does work -- unlikely, but possible.
And don't forget using All Day Chemist to get plenty of full doses on the cheap.
(also take my advice and don't order from ADC during Thanksgiving-Xmas time! They must get overwhelmed at customs around this time. I have an order that went in on Nov 16 and is still sitting there (NY City). Other times it's in and out in a day or so.
