I think the majority of us here who use ADC buy the Manly version of the sildenafil citrate 100mg. manufactured by Cooper Pharm., usually sells as a buy one/get one, which brings the price down into the .57 cents range, last time I checked. The Silagra brand sells for around $2.00 a pill, the same sells in the Canadian Northwest Pharmacy for a little over $4.00 a pill. The Manly pill, while cheap, si sometimes reported as being a little stronger than the Viagra brand name. I have used it for the past 3 years, it's cheap, safe, and while not effective for me, the side effects tell me it would be if I were at the point where the pills did work for me. Just one guys opinion, of course. For those who are unsure about
ordering generics from overseas, the Canadian and other countries pharmacies use the same pills, from the same manufacturer and usually from the same Indian wholesalers as ADC uses.
Also, to address the OP, the purpose of the ED pills just after treatment is to improve blood flow into the pelvis, infusing the tissues and such with fresh blood, which aids in the healing of damaged areas and nerve repair being speeded up, probably. The purpose of the pills aren't for promoting intercourse, but as an aid to healing and to help induce those all important healing nocturnal erections. . The usual progression is to use the pills for blood flow and nocturnal erections, progressing to a penis pump in a few weeks if there's no response. The pump will help in the stretching and filling of the penis with blood, to prevent shrinkage and atrophy, and to recover as much length as posible, if possible. The next step, if no success with the pills and pump is the prick. That's the prick of a penile injection needle, of course. The injections are usually painless or very minimal pain, very effective (about
98% of men respond to it). The old saying of making a rope erect is fairly accurate a descript
ion. Several of us began the injections early at the same time as the pump in my case- about
6 weeks post surgery. There's some literature out that says penile injection is the fastest and most effective method of rehabbing the penis after RRP. In any case, unless the guy is fortunate to get normal erections soon after RRP, then the road to erections lead thru the pill, pump, and prick protocol. It may take a few months or a few years, it's work, not pleasure and takes dedication and support from a partner, if one is available. That's just the way it is, I'm afraid. However, if someone is scared of the needle, the good healthy feeling one has mentally and physically with having a nice firm erection after so many months of sickness and recovery usually convinces them to continue. It is really amazing how our attitude about
life changes when we got one tucked in the pants.
