starting this thread, so those of us who have gone the generic ED drug(s) route can share their experience. I'll start off. over a year ago, my doc gave me some Viagra. it takes 100mg to work on me, I am a big person. the side effects were terrible. it worked all right, but didn't last, and the next day I felt just plain terrible. I purchased some generic Viagra from an India RX, forgot which one. the brand name was Manly, I ordered the 100mg. I took it a few times, it wasn't as strong, it took 150 mg or 1 1/2 generic pills for an erection. I gave some to a friend who said 50mg of regular brand name Viagra worked for him. he took 100 mg a couple diff times and got nothing. eventually, it didn't work for me either, I took 2 generic pills and then another one, 300mg total. no erection, got blue vision like crazy, and a headache. threw the pills away. then the doc gave me Cialis to try, 20mg does the trick. without getting into all of it, I found Cialis to work 100% better, and the side effects for me were minimal, a little stuffy nose, a little stiffness in back and upper legs but not bad. I can do stretches and make that go away. the $16 a pill is pretty steep. so I tried Forzest, generic cialis, 20 mg from fine-generics.com. 32 for $74. this generic works pretty well most of the time, altho i have taken it at times and nothing, some of the pills are duds. which is no problem really, if I feel it not working, I just take another one. typically, the weekend is more than likely my time to get laid, so I take a pill late Friday pm. if I get 'lucky" friday nite or even not, I take another 20 mg late Saturday morning. this double dose sets me for the next several days. by that I mean, I can get wood on Wednesday. this stuff stays in your body for days, and if my lady touchs and flirts with my meat, I get a nice chub, a little more action and it's stiff. better than hanging there limp and flaccid like before. I don't notice any diff side effects than the real Cialis, the generics dosing I think is inconsistent at times. one drawback to Cialis or generic Cialis, you can't drink much booze. I like to drink, not as much as I did once, but still like a few. so if you got sex in mind, easy on the booze.
