Cialis/Taldalafil and, or Viagra/Sildenafil on prescription seems to be a bit of a postcode lottery. And maybe some GPs have there own slant to put into the consideration pot when thinking about wether to issue our not?
I presented the "business case" for my being prescribed the meds in a letter to my GP. He was not anti, just wanted to know from my perspective why I thought it MIGHT help, not necessarily that I could prove that it WOULD help. My surgeon recommend both meds, that helped.
Some thoughts you may wish to consider and explore to support your claim, is that not all meds are appropriate for all men at any given time?
Some men are not affected by Cialis, others can not cope with the side effects. There are so many variables. As a result, results from any general trials are only accurate and relevant for those men involved in those trials. For everyone else it is only a guideline. What a shame if you are one of the minority of men that would benefit, and due to random statistics, yo are denied the chance?
Similarly, some drugs may have little or no effect for some time, but then, and excuse the unscientific terminology, "kick in" later with beneficial affect?
Perhaps related, perhaps not, in surgery cases penile rehab is supposed to be as good as it gets at the 2 year post op point? Some even suggest 1 year is as good as it is going to get. I know that both these timescales are incorrect.
I am not familiar with the post op treatment regimes and their successes, or the average time it should take to recover from other similar surgical procedures. I do not know if for example the variations on recovery and rehab I hear and read about for prostate operations is as varied and diverse for breast cancer operations or lung cancer operations.
Clinical trials are a guideline. Unless you try the meds, no-one, not the GPs, not you, will not know with certainty, if it will work for you. That is what I would emphasise.
If you buy the meds privately, and they have a beneficial effect, that evidence should enhance your business case? But see my note on timing. Are you prepare to buy privately for some time?
Edit to add: Anyone seeking the meds and buying it privately in the meantime might conduct their own clinical trial on themselves? If taking Cialis and your circulation improves, as shown by extended or increased finger and toenail growth for example, that may indicate that your he blood is circulating more efficiently, that might be a fact worth mentioning? Just a thought?
