I have just checked my medical records on the EMIS Patient Access App, and there is a letter there - which I have yet to receive by post - ostensibly from my GP practice, but in reality from some bureaucrat somewhere within my NHS Trust, stating that my daily 5mg Cialis/Tadafil prescription is being changed to an occasional Sildenafil/Viagra tablet on financial grounds.
Tadalafil will still be available on private prescription at around sixty quid a month.
I wonder if that bureaucrat is aware that Cialis went off patent last November, and there are at least four other pharma firms making generic Tadalafil as well as the original inventors Eli Lily, and that the costs of the generic versions of Viagra and Cialis are similar? The urology nurse I saw yesterday at our billion pound super hospital knew nothing about the new policy, or even that Cialis was “off licence”.
Unfortunately I am allergic to Viagra, and the genuine Viagra I bought from the pharmacy at Wal-Mart in Acapulco years ago, and the night of rampant sex I had planned, going loco down in Acapulco, ended up with me in bed with a headache.
It could be worse, my 70 year old mate in America went to the doctor seeking a bit of erectile augmentation, and the doctor asked: “How many Viagra do you want?”
”Give me six month’s worth, let’s say 100”. The doctor was well impressed. They cost him a fortune then.
Unfortunately he took the first one and suffered nausea and headache and had 99 left!
I‘ll see how it pans out when I have a consultation with the GP next week for my penis pump. Does James Dyson make a cordless one? If I ever do have another erection I will want to run round the house with it, masturbating furiously, not being connected by a cable to a plug socket!😉
