Common Questions and Answers about Viagra and drinking alcohol

viagra

I'm a white male, 42, non smoking, little alcohol drinking, and I exercise regularly. I'm not overweight. I have high blood pressure (hereditary) which I control with 40 mg Enalapril. Still, it runs around 130/85. I began having issues with ED about 4 years ago. 3 years ago, I began taking viagra. Initially, 25 mg was plenty. During the last few months, I have bumped it up to 50 mg, and in the last few weeks, even 50 mg has little effect. I have tried Cialis too, with a similar story...
my husband has in the last couple of months become sex mad and won,t give me a minutes peace. I am 64 and he will soon be 69 and we have always enjoyed a loving relationship, having sex maybe once or twice a week, but know he wants it at least twice a day and it is getting me down. He can,t explain why he suddenly feels like this but I know he drinks far too much and wonder if this is the reason or if there is a medical cause.
I took one more and waited a while with no results.... I have used alcohol with viagra before and I performed well. Can someone tell what the issue might be...Its puzzling because I don't know why it didn't work. I could not maintain a hard enough erection to penetrate her....
Finally, my husband went to yet another GP and got a prescription for Viagra, and that is where we are at now. Problem is, he won't use the Viagra. He says that he is so scared that it won't work, and then he will have to admit total failure as there will be no-where else to go from here. Can anyone offer me any advice on exercises/activites I can try? Do you think that he is just making excuses and that there is some other reason eg.
So I suggest no alcohol for a week and then take the Viagra (with no alcohol involved) to see if he gets a better erection.
Gave up drinking totally (had already stopped ritalin and prozac) when I found alcohol made my heart race too. Now I get fast heart from monosodium glutamate (chinese food) some skippings and missings. If I exercise my heartrate goes from 80+ at rest to over 160 within 5 minutes (aerobic exercise), yet I am not remotely out of breath, of course I sweat a bit lol. My heartrate then seems to take forever to settle down again afterwards.
I get a tingle or pressure outside the skull as opposed to a headache, I definetely have anxiety, I went through a strange order where I was overstimulated on viagra and had to go to the ER. They check me out and said I was OK. I then had symptoms of hypoglycimia, which I was told later by my doctor is possible from anxiety from all the adrelin that can be produced during a traumatic event.
Admittedly, I have a lot of room to go as I still eat the frequent cheeseburger and french fries. Drugs/alcohol - I've never smoked or taken any drugs at all. Drinking alcohol is a very rare activity that I've only begun to do in the past couple years, infrequently and in moderation. When I drink, it's possible that my erections are harder but I have no solid evidence on that. Exercise - In my youth, I was never very active.
I found that drinking makes the pain stop. Its bad, I know, but 3 glasses of wine and I don't notice anymore... I have been drinking each night so I don't feel it. I use the Cortizone cream during the day. I have a cold washcloth and frozen veggies on my crotch now. The skin outside hurts all around and the vaginal opening stings and its red sometimes and pink sometimes and it does not hurt to pee and my discharge is the same as it always is...
Being on certain medications, having diabetes or other illnesses, having anxiety problems, drinking too much alcohol, lack of sleep are just a few problems that can cause erectile dysfunction. Make an appointment to see your doctor to run some blood tests and check your prostate.
First of all, if you are drinking a lot- stop it. Alcohol will cause vasoconstriction- which means narrowing of the veins and if blood can't flow in, or carry blood well, you will not be able to sustain a hard erection. Alcohol and sex don't compliment each other- unless you are having under a glass and it is not a regular part of your life. Given your situation I'd stop drinking entirely. It also sounds like some of your reaction may be emotional.
When I jog by my local pub and see fat people smoking and drinking to there hearts content ( no pun intended), I tend to agree with her. Life is not always fair. I have various other health problems like bad knees and a bad ankle. Lots of daily pain. I never complain about it, because it pales in comparison to this Chinese water torture they call PVC's.
hi im 30 and take viagra due to depression pills i take it works great
So I'm going to do the small portions thing and see if that helps with them next month. I'm also going to start drinking aloe vera juice nightly, because I've read that its soothing properties help with heartburn. Other than that, I'm going to take magnesium and a multi vit to see if a combination of everything will help. Had anyone had any luck asking the dr. for something to fix the problem--hormone fluxes..?
We did have a really big night drinking the night before and tried to have sex a while after we woke up. Could the alcohol still affect his erection or could he have an STD that would stop him from getting an erection?
i had sex twice and everything was ok, and after the third time the problems began. my partner and i had hard sex and my penis hurt a bit when she was on top of me. i urinated a few minutes after ejaculating and blood came out along with a very big blood clot at the end. i had sexual intercourse about 7 or 8 times before seeing a doctor. the same occurred except for 2 times, in which no blood appeared.
I am just a beginner here myself, but I know that your slightly elevated AST level does not mean that you have Hepatitis C. It can have other causes such as drinking alcohol on a regular basis or some other medical problem.
I don't want to take medications and I doubt that such things as Viagra are available here anyway. .......I'm considering getting drunk to help release the inhibitions, but I read that drinking alcohol can decrease sex .......drive. .......The bedroom that my girl and I sleep in reminds me of my problem, should we rearrange it or move to another .......room? Thanks for your help.
My husband is an alcoholic and for the last year he hasnt been able to maintain an erection... he went to the dr and got viagra and he is thinking that is the cure for him.. My question is shouldnt the dr be investing this further to check for other possible health conditions.. his alcoholism could be the culprit of many conditions. it is sad to say that my husband has been an alcoholic for many years and that has to wear out your body and i think now that things are starting to show up..
Felt like trash for the next couple of years until I found this doctor who told me I had Neurocardiogenic Syncope. He gave me visken, nexium and rivotril. I quit drinking and eating spicy foods at this time. I felt good for a couple of weeks. Went to the hospital several times. Had some tests done. Positive for syncope once. Negative another time. Doctor decided it was all in my head and proceeded to gave me antidepressants... worst thing ever!
If you want a good sex life then give up the drugs, wave goodbye to the smoking and alcohol, get some goodnights sleep, get of all the junk food you eat, start getting healthy and eat healthy, get out and exercise, stop masterbating and sex for a while, then you can regroup and get out there again, Good Luck and boy do you need it most.
Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.
That is actually a common occurence when guys drink, and usually most girls know that-depending on their age and experience with bars and drinking. I also think that you're right about the possibility of your current state of panic and anxiety affecting your next performance and your current condition. I hope that it at least eases you some to know that it is completely normal for guys to loose an erection when they drink, and it does not mean there is something wrong with you.

No background diseases like cancer, HIV, STD, diabetes, high blood pressure or something significant else I'm not or was on any medication I have a good diet with vitamin supplements in addition. No smoking and occasional drinking of alcohol. Finally I visited a doctor for that issue 3weeks ago. He asked me for my symptoms, I had to fill out several forms and he made a blood test.

Worrying and stress in general will cause essential tremor (and in general any other tremor, whether it be from drinking a cup of coffee too much and that causing a tremor, or a medical condition causing a tremor) to worsen, I know from firsthand (ha ha) experience, I've had essential tremor as long as I can remember.
And he allowed me to go in with him where his doc told him he has Hep C ( everyone out here has it, so it seems my neighbor is yellow, alcohol and his live in uses drugs) However his doc did not adress hep B. I told my friend to get a copy of his lab results and I posted them on the Hep B community area under Confused Hep B? how bout it nygal, bill, dave portann anybody? we could call but. They wont give that info on the phone and its an hour away. Now I will try and find him a doc.
I've been to my doctor and had blood tests done - all ok, no diabities plus cholesterol and testosterone was fine. I've tried Cialis and Viagra which worked a treat but these are only temporary "fixes". I've also noticed my urine stream isn't quite as powerful as it used to be. Is it worth seeing a urologist? While I suppose its all in my head a small part of me remains convinced there could be a physical cause. Besides a GP, who could see for a checkup?
