Just got back from Pharmacy with Cialis - 8 pills=$99
In the past, we've tried Viagra/Cialis - but only samples. Cialis seems to cause less of headache - haven't tried Levitra, but a friend vomits profusely with it, so we've steered clear of asking for that, yet.
This is a little pricy for ongoing use. Medicare - didn't sign up for the drug plan/supplemental BCBS is neglible for most drugs to date.
Any thoughts? We hope to avoid the pump - understand that Medicare does not cover. Hope also to avoid injections. Guess we're just looking for less expensive pill forms.
Post-surgical notes for other drugs:
I will say that the other post-surgical pills were rather inexpensive. A grand total of $30 for:
-pills to reduce bladder spasms
-pills for pain (generic Vicodin)
We bought OTC Gas-X and an Equate vegetable laxative. Those have worked well. Husb. just had first bowel movement this morning and all went well with no pain. Very exciting. So, that took 3 days to happen post-surgery.
