Just a quick update on my first ADC experience.
I placed the order on a Friday (and did not take the default doc --maybe should have -- i put in my real Doc). The order languished for over a week before shipping on Sunday -- no real explanation except 'pending'. But then the package just rocketed thru to NYC .. thru customs in a day and delivered on Friday. That's impressive (have used PlanetDrugsDirect for other stuff and always takes 3+ weeks).
Also on ADC I had placed a second order on Sunday and it went thru in a couple days and is now being delivered -- I suppose that is more typical?
And finally, the 20 mg Levitra while not doing a whole lot at this point (4 weeks post op) did have some effect -- got tons more tries after that one so I am not worried. (Plus the pump works great afterwards).
Does anyone have a comment as to why Docs would prescribe 10mg Levitra as a maintenance dose ( to keep blood flowing) rather than 20 mg (more is better yah?) other than the cost factor (or perhaps lesser side effects)?? Is there any problem using the full dose daily or every other day over a long period of time?
Update: I too have gotten that email requesting a check, money order or bank wire. I guess the second order had not shipped yet - although they had given me a tracking number for it. (or they are just very trusting!).
