My urologist's office says the maximum dosage one should take for Viagra is 150 mg and for Cialis 20 mg.

I assume that is based on averages, yet I'm a bit bigger than the average guy (6'5", 256#). I have an email in to the urologist on this, but doesn't it make sense that a bigger guy could use a little bit more; e.g., 175 or 200 mg of Viagra, for example?

You could try it (higher doses) however, be braced for the increased side effects.

Have you considered trying L-Arginine for a while to see if it makes a difference in your response? Takes about 2 weeks to see a difference as far as we could tell. It's a precursor to NO and has few contraindications (renal dysfunction is a no-no for example). Paul has had very good success in the last year+ with VasoFlow twice a day and prn Viagra or Levitra. Just a thought for ya..

Hi Swimom -

I have been taking L-arginine for the last 4 weeks (in addition to pentoxifylline and 10 mg Cialis per day, and also a Chinese herbal remedy). I am seeing some improved response, though still not sufficient for intercourse. Not sure if it's the meds or if it is just healing.

Is VasoFlow a VED or is it a oral drug?

Hey Strictly,
 
San VasoFlow (brand) is a multi enzyme formula containing LArginine. It is by far the best quality LA we've found. Costly yet effective.
 
As for which is working? Ha! Well, all or maybe one. My guess, subjective as it is, is all in combination are having a synergistic effect. Hang in there. Paul is a good example of what an outcome may be using a multimodality approach. Gotta go....
