Hi.. wondering if others might know why my order would be "on hold'? They took the money from my account and sent me a receipt. Never asked me about prescription, where I was going to use the medication or anything. I ordered Tadalafil 20 Mg 3+- days ago. I logged onto see the status and is on-hold. Help is appreciated.
First ever PSA test Jan 2010 @ 51 years old. 4.0.
Digital exam in March 2010 showed 1 side hard, other soft.
Biopsy, positive in 3 of 12.
Davinci @ Boston Medical Center, May 17, 2010.
Was suggested prior to it was likely contained.
June 1 advised 3+-4 was really 4+3 per pathology. Pos margins.
Listed on patholgy as PT3, but with extraprostatic extension,
microscopic invasion of the bladder neck, PT3A is perhaps the case.
Catheter removed June 1.. 1 pad/day, doing ok. ED, but not in rush.
Sore as heck down there, but doing much walking with my wife.
To meet with my Uri (1st meeting since) June 17 - 1 mo point, to discuss.
BMC already has me setup to meet with radiology.
Felling a little better each day. Cant tell if my expectancy just went from 10-15 down to 5-7, the information out there appears to be all over the place. I WILL NOT radiate my insides to the point of being a veg for the sake of a few years. QOL is primary to me. Selfish I guess. I pray for all of you as I do for myself, but must remember that i've had a pretty good 50+ years, and know others who have lost their children to disease.. so I dont have the nerve to complain! Update 7/14/2010: When I tried changing this sig a few days after creating it, system was broken. My new rad oncologist are discussing IMRT.. though he says he can see why waiting a bit and watching the PSA on super sensitive basis might make sense. I am leaning towards IMRT.. thinking is my body is pretty strong now, i'm 51, and if I can rid my body of this while trying to minimize the side effects.. I dunno. No really Good answers. When I said I didnt want radiation to the point of being a veg.. I really meant there is a limit as to where I wish to go in order to realize only a small increase in life expectancy.. and not that I am an unreasonable person. I do, after all, have an obligation to my wife and kids.

Bob,
they are not as a general rule able supply the Cialis generic into the US because of restrictions. For legal reasons you have to inform them that you will be consuming the product while out of your country ....... perhaps a technical little white fib would suffice.

Bob, as I recall when I ordered tadalafil from Allday, several days after placing the order I received an email stating what Bill mentioned about not using in the U.S. They also gave you 3 options, I remember only two of them.. 1) switch to the viagra generic, 2) respond that you are planning to use it while out of the country... I replied that I fell into the "2)" option. Shortly after wards I got a confirmation email and a couple weeks later my order in the mail.

Take care,
Jake

Thanks guys for replying...  You both hit it on the head. I explained that I was indeed not going to use it here in the US.. and they got back to me saying order will be shipped. With what i've been through, i'll almost look forward to customs, FBI, Postal and anyone else who wants to come and try and mess up my life any further.. good luck with that.

Thanks Vette, any idea if I should expect an issue with that? This site were on is pretty well known, the "heat" are probably reading this as soon as we write it, do you think they REALLY want to go after people like us?

I hope they wait until I receive and use the drug, and then catch me with a stiffy here on US soil. I might just set THEM up.. put a cuke in my drawers the day I receive the package. One of us will say "This is a stick up". Or something.

I just ordered their generic Viagra called 'Manly' a few weeks ago. It was stuck in 'processing' for almost a week. When I emailed them to enquire about my order, within 24 hours I recieved an email back that stating they already shipped the product but was still waiting for the tracking number before they would change the status. Once I received a tracking number it didn't take long at all.

Customs cleared the package sunday late morning. By the sunday mid-afternoon it was already being shipped to my city. The next day, Monday, it was out for delivery (didn't give me much lead time to get home in time to sign for the package...no worries). Picked up my package this morning at the post office with my tracking number before coming into work.

All in all it took about 2 weeks from the time I ordered to the time it was in my hands...

I have only heard problems with customs when you are ordering more than 200 pills. The package didn't seemed like was opened during customs inspection so unless those dogs are sniffing out for Cialis only, I don't think you will have a problem.

Why is it that you can get sample packs and prescriptions from Doctors for Cialis but ADC has to know that you are not taking it in the USA before shipping it is beyond me.

While I have a great deal of sympathy for those men seeking these drugs at the lowest possible price, I wonder at the overall ethics of using this forum for a discussion for ways one might circumvent U.S. Customs import restrictions on drugs from foreign countries.  Where do we draw the line?

I wouldn't draw the line here. If drugs are priced in the US for ten times the price that they are available overseas, what do they expect? Cut the price, pull the ads off TV, and US sales will skyrocket.

Drug prices are cheaper in Europe, because drugs are required by law to be freely exported among the countries of the European Union, which drives the price down. Why is it that the exact same pills are sold for wildly different prices in Canada, Europe and the US? Why is that legal?

Hi Bob,

Customs would not come to your house, they would simply destroy the item.

FYI, places like Rite-aide sell qty=30 of Cialis daily 5mg for approx $120 if you have no ins coverage for the drug

But 5mg Cialis is very weak, you may find that 50mg of Viagra for recovery or 20mg Cialis every other day works out better for you

Initially its best to get samples of all 3 from your Dr and see which causes you the least side effect, then which sparks some erection. Each works differently, some are extremely particular ( in absorption) on the food you eat
Stats:
Age: 52, PSA (2008)=1.9
Biopsy on 01/09/09, Gleason Score = 3+3
One (1) out of twelve (12) cores was positive, plus external nodule found
Surgery (Da Vinci, robotic prostatectomy): 4/7/09
Post Op Path 3+3
Removed Catheter: 04/19/09
100% bladder control - Pad free 7/09
PSA 7/09 undetectable, <0.01 - 3 months post-op
PSA 1/10 undetectable, <0.01 - 9 months post-op
Trimix provides 100% erectile function

Mr Gimpy:

If they destroy them, I get to try another 20-30-40 times getting them through before it comes close to what it will cost me otherwise.

If they charge me, and I plead guilty, then they will be required by law to give them to me free of charge. In which case you will pay for them, and Kongo too.

Ahh the irony. How selfish of me.. I want to live AND be normal too. I almost feel guilty.

Bob,

I don't blame any of you or the other guys needing the drugs to buy it that way, outside the mainstream. There's no legit reason the drugs should be refused to be paid by our insurance groups. It's not like its for some run down drunk that can't get it up, and wants it just for recreational purposes, for post PC men, with ED, the meds are critical in their recoveries, and the insurance firms should be able to plainly see that. Big difference.

But if I needed them, my only hesitency, would be buying outside the standard loop of the FDA, just kind of run on the paranoid side when it comes to meds. When I buy something at Walgreens, CVS, Wal-Mart, etc, I don't sit around worrying about impurities in the drugs, or if what is on the label is different from what is in the bottle. But that's just me.

The only good thing to report, is that in the past 10 years, so many meds have become generic, and the cost of everyday prescription meds for many people have dropped so much in price, down to the free to 10 dollar range. I have been on Ambien for more than 10 years, I can remember paying even with insurance at one point, $160 USD a month for it way back then, now, its just a $10 drug. I figured the other night, that all the drugs I need right now, including pain meds, etc, are costing me just barely more than a dollar a day.

For all those in need, I wish something could be done about the ED meds. It's extortion right now, the prices. I feel for anyone that has to pay the price or circumnavigate the system to buy them. But you got to do what you got to do.

Bob,
I don't think it is against any law as such. I believe it has more to do with Eli Lilly having some sort of residual patent over Cialis in the US. Why this is not applicable in other countries and why Viagra and Levitra do not fall under the same umbrella I have no idea. I doubt you are about to have your house stormed. I too found that position re the ethics, offensive as well.

Folks. As i've made my way along this journey that started out of nowhere only this past March... I found that I was on the edge of my seat over every single solitary bit of information. Each bit of news becoming more complicated and scary than the last.. for us and our loved ones. Then we learn more about this disease, most of us. With that knowledge comes power, but also responsibility. Choices. Bad choices. There are no easy answers, in fact there are no absolute CORRECT answers. I left my first uro because he didn't want to give me ANY advice. There came a point in time where I told myself, and my wife "I will not be married to this disease, I can only die once, and I will not die a thousand deaths based on the next appointment, the next psa result, etc" That is just foolish to me. I'm going to die, if I die from prostate cancer, it wont be because I didn't try not to. But I REFUSE to live the life I DO have while living in horreow of evey medical report. I have been liberated to a certain degree. I am no longer intimidated by doctors, by other people's opinions, or by muy own mortality. If an authority of my government can look me in the eye and tell me I am wrong for wanting to be a complete person, good luck. Come and get me. That is about the VERY LAST thing that I am worried about. I have a wife and kids to love. The rest of this is bullcrap. And to ANYONE who thinks I give a crap about a drug company after my goverment bailed out the banks that cost me my 401k and my health insurance so that I cant afford to pay for the ransom they want for the drugs that can cure part of me... your barking up the wrong moral tree.. this guy has better things to worry about. And plenty of them.

I pray for all of you as I do for myself, but must remember that i've had a pretty good 50+ years, and know others who have lost their children to disease.. so I dont have the nerve to complain! Update 7/14/2010: When I tried changing this sig a few days after creating it, system was broken. My new rad oncologist are discussing IMRT.. though he says he can see why waiting a bit and watching the PSA on super sensitive basis might make sense. I am leaning towards IMRT.. thinking is my body is pretty strong now, i'm 51, and if I can rid my body of this while trying to minimize the side effects.. I dunno. No really Good answers. When I said I didnt want radiation to the point of being a veg.. I really meant there is a limit as to where I wish to go in order to realize only a small increase in life expectancy.. and not that I am an unreasonable person. I do, after all, have an obligation to my wife and kids.
