Viagra (Sildenafil) stopped working!

1 year 4 months ago #2780 by Ininerelds
Hi. I am a little bit worried and I would appreciate some help. I guess I should start off from the very beginning and so I need to say that I have been taking generic viagra for some years now that I have been used to purchase from overseas without a script for them. since the very beginning, it always has been working quite well for me, with good effects and nearly no side effects. there were some hits and also some misses too, however I've had an approximately of 90% success rate with it. however the problem is that in the last half a year or so (maybe 7 months, not sure), I have started to notice that my erectile dysfunction problem is getting worse, or maybe the pills that I used to take (as I said - generic viagra, sildenafil) just stopped from working anymore for me. it is obvious that my wife has noticed that there is something wrong too and that's a big problem for me… I mean, we have been going out for the last 5 years or so and she never found out that I have been using ED aid medications. I've been making sure in all this time that she won't find out and I always hide it, I was able to hide it somehow… I guess the reason is pretty obvious, as any other men who takes these ED pills and isn't telling to their partner - I have been really embarrassed to say it. I guess one of the main reasons for that is that she is much younger than me… I mean… much younger… I am 51 and she is 31… 20 years between us. so well, for the first 3 years of our relationship we have had sex approximately 3 times per week, rarely less or more. but it was amazing. during that time I've been mostly using the aid of 25 mg to maximum 50 mg of the generic viagra, there were even sometimes when I could perform well with no help at all. that's when I was 46 until about 49 or so.

however, then later it changed a lot… I mean, our sex life… it has dropped very much since we have had a baby a couple of years ago. I mean, I do know that this is normal when a baby appears, but I still have a problem because it is like I don't even know how to start sex with her anymore. I do know that she thinks that I am not being attracted to her anymore, however this is surely not like that because I still am! she's 30 years old, of course she is very sexy and super attractive! anyhow, then later she has finally told me something like: hey, why don't you just go and get yourself some Viagra if that's the problem? it is not a big deal and that might help. after all, we both knew that someday you might need it.' to be honest, it was a bit of surprise for me that she was like that, she was very and very nonchalant about it all and this has truly taken off some of the pressure because, of course, I thought that at least now I am not going to need to hide it anymore! and so, I have then went and got myself a prescription for 50 mg of Viagra and I have filled it at a legit pharmacy in local area. the first thing that came into my mind while I was there is, of course… it is pretty damn expensive if comparing it to what I had been paying for the Sildenafil that I used to pay for online, but anyway, I was thinking that since the price is higher then the potency must be higher so my expectations were higher. in fact, I can tell you that I was pretty anxious to see if there was a difference at all or not. as I have said it earlier in my post, I have always been used to take only 50 mg of it and there were sometimes when only 25 mg and even rarer (but still happened), when nothing at all of the generic stuff - and it always worked fine (or at least, again as I said, in 90 % cases). plus to that, I can tell you that the only other time when I have ever taken viagra has been when I was much younger, it was when I have been 37 years old. during those days I never had a problem with my erection, but a girlfriend of mine gave me one 50 mg pill, just for fun, however fun never came because we broke up and I never used it. the pill was just lying around. then I have finally got to dating once again and I have met somebody with whom we've got in bed and that's when I have taken it, I've taken it before our first time and so I can tell you …. I have had the ever best erection of my life. so that's how I have started to use it then…

anyhow, let's come back to the present now and let me explain it… so… the other night we have got a little bit tipsy (especially she… she has got even more than me) and we wanted to fool around… and so, for the first time ever in my life I have told her… 'hey, why wouldn't I try one of those viagras that I have got for such situations?' and she agreed with me. I have taken the viagra that I got from local pharmacy and I have been waiting. as you can understand, I've got nothing at all… I have not got that flushed feeling, I have not got that stuffy nose, I have not got anything that I knew I should get, anything that I have been accustomed to in the past while I have been taking the generic stuff. it is obvious I knew how I need to feel when taking it, but I didn't felt anything and I have not got anything at all. it shocked me completely, I definitely haven't expected anything like this to happen. I have waited for like one hour and I still have not got anything at all. I've started to think… the real stuff does not work? that's really shocking… I was ready to blame the stuff that I have got from the pharmacy and I was thinking that I still have much chances to get the effects from using my ol' pills I was getting online. so I have told her that I have also ordered some of the generic viagra as well when I've got the prescription because I've seen that they are cheaper (but it is obvious that I have done it before getting the prescription for the real stuff) and I have ingested another 50 mg pill of that again which means that I already have taken 100 mg of sildenafil within an hour and guess what? still nothing at all! I had never used that batch of generic in the past so it has been for the very first time. but anyway, I was still getting nothing at all! that night it has been a really bust for me… I was so embarrassed and been feeling so bad… I just could not get it up regardless of I was doing. and again, that’s taking in consideration that I have already having 100 mg of sildenafil in my body. I haven't got any effects at all. still no stuffy nose, no flushed, nothing!!!! I couldn't believe that it happens to me and I was just so so damn depressed, in fact I still am depressed over this even though this has happened 2 weeks ago now and to be honest, I am now intimated and even afraid to try again. I just can't explain it, I just don't know why it happens to me, I only know that it happens and that it makes me feel so so depressed now!

now… I really don't know if this is a sign of things to come… if my once trusty sildenafil is not working anymore then what do I do? what would work??? what should I do now?? I should say that I have ordered some tadacip in order to check if that is going to work any better than sildenafil. another thing that I need to mention (which I think that is important), is that I have been suffering from depression issues as of late because of the work stress that I am overloaded, plus I have also had my testosterone levels tested too and as you can guess - it was pretty low but even so, I can assume that it has been quite low for a long time now and I did not know about it and how low it was, but the pills were still working, I guess because it wasn't as low as it is now. I guess that now, since the testosterone has gotten even lower - the pills can't reach that point when I can get help. in regards to this I should say that I did tried to do something about it - I have gone on a regiment of attempting to build my testosterone back up and I have tried to do so by using some supplements and by working out and as I know that these 2 usually help best when having low test.

anyway, now, as you can understand I have some questions (and if you can, I would appreciate any recommendations/ advices for me and my situation) for you which goes as following: has anyone of you here ever been successful in using sildenafil for some years and then later, all of a sudden, it just stopped from working, completely?! have any of you went through such a situations when there are times when even if you know that it is a good stuff that you have got but it still just don't work for some unknown reason? I am really worried that there is something wrong with me and my health and I am also very concerned about my relationship! this is a big problem regardless of what other might think about it. but I surely do not want to lose my girlfriend and my daughter so please help me! I really need help!

wow… bro… I know what you are talking about because I am currently going through something that is very and very similar to your situation with Tadacip. that's just so strange and so… frustrating… I cannot personally say that I have never had name brand product not work however, I have surely, totally and definitely had generics come up a dud!

I need to ask you… are you familiar with the specifics of Viagra (Sildenafil citrate)? I am pretty sure that you are but I still need to ask you just in case… and if you, by accident, are not, then you surely and immediately should pay attention to them.. like for example it is not to drink too much or to eat too much either (or a having some fatty meal…) because sildenafil works better without alcohol and on an empty stomach! if, by accident, when you were fooling around, you ate a lot and you drink pretty well and then you have taken 100 mg of sildenafil (especially also taking in consideration your low test) then there's no wonder that it didn't worked… you've got to know and to keep in mind that alcohol and/ or food can completely block the absorption of sildenafil (viagra) and it does not matter either it is generic or brand. it is like you take it and the med is flushed out without doing it whatever it must do. I just tell you this because, if by accident, you didn't know it, then maybe this is what happened? and I know it because I have experienced that myself! remember that Cialis on other hand, is not being affected by food intake, however, both levitra and viagra are being greatly affected so keep that in mind.

what I would recommend you is, obviously, not to stress too much about it and not to think too much about it. too much thinking leads to stress which therefore leads to bad performance. do not let it get in your head. everything is alright. try to exercise more, try to eat better and less bad food. try to reduce stress amount (from work and this situation and whichever else situation) as much as possible. then later, right in the day when you intend to do it. try to be calm, try not to get too tipsy, eat light that day and do not eat anything few hours before actual performance, take the sildenafil (in 100 mg) and you could even exercise a few hours before the actual performance as well. and again, very important is to stay calm. just let it happen. pretty sure that by doing all of this it is going to lead you to pretty good results.

and yeah, by the way, of course I don't know you but I do think that you are going to like the Tadacip which is why I recommend you to try it out. works different and anytime you are going to try something new. generally, it works just great, it is amazing. plus to that, I would say that you shouldn't be afraid to even use both of them (but pay attention!!! not both of them at the same time!!!) and just think about it as of another option that you can have in your repertoire. I just recommend you this because this is what I personally like to do, and you do not need to stick to only one or to another. I really hope this is going to be helpful for you, come back with updates if you find something!

Thately, I wanted to say that I am really thankful for your encouraging words. I just hope very and very much that what was going on that night has been more mental than physical… the fact that I was worried that it wouldn't work, and it didn't. but the problem is that I guess I am now even more worried. but I just want to say that I find it incredible how much stress is taking a toll on you both mentally and physically. now I just don't know if the stress has affected my libido or if my low testosterone is affecting my mood that it is causing me to be stressed and not being able to get it up. or as you said, maybe a combination of both?! in fact, I should say that I never believed it to be true (I'm talking about stress) until I have hit my 40s. but then later, it became real to me, unfortunately. I can say that I have been in a real mental mess as of late because of the job insecurity and job dissatisfaction and to be honest, I am finding it really really hard to relax, calm down and be in the moment and I think that therefore, the need for alcohol each time when I am thinking about sex. yes, that night I drank alcohol, however I should say that alcohol has never really affected the efficacy of that generic viagra that I was getting for me. or at least, I couldn't notice it to be affected. as I have mentioned it earlier, I did have taken the 'real stuff' from the local pharmacy with prescription and it has done absolutely nothing, I mean 0 effects whatsoever. I am thinking that this is what kind of scared me out and maybe what made me have such a performance (0 performance…). whichever the case I can tell you that generic has been pretty much always worked for me. I am not sure, maybe I just got lucky throughout the years in my orders?! I mean… I could see and doubtlessly understand if getting some duds from overseas, that's often happening to lots of people, however, when the real viagra from a real pharmacy simply did not work then that was the time when I have got pretty much surprised that it didn't because I expected it to work AT LEAST the same but even better! but I do know that the problem is all in me because I do know that I am very attracted to my girlfriend as I have a really really great and super sexy girlfriend… or in fact, I should call her my fiance because we are now engaged (that's why I called her my wife in my first post). now we are having a very beautiful 2 years old girl together and we both love her more than anything! since I see that it all started to become a problem I have went back to the gym working out! I am currently eating a testosterone boosting diet… went online and read about it so I know that it is steak, eggs, bacon, salmon, greens as well as using pomegranate supplement that it is believed that they are also increasing the testosterone as well! with all my diet and working out that I really try hard, I am going to have my testosterone checked once again in a few weeks in order to check it out if all of this is help and my testosterone goes up or it is not. I really hope a lot that it does help and I would have better results but I also hope (as a plan B or something) that if it won't - my doctor would give me something that would boost my testosterone.

and now… a for the viagra thing.. I am just going to keep my meals light and a few hours before using it. this really what seems to make it work the best (and what I suggest to other people to do when using it). it is just the fact that there are sometimes when you don't really know how the night is going to end up. is this a night of intimacy or not? you don't always know, this just kind of happens from time to time. really hope this all is going to work up.

just look, it is quite simple… the next time when you're going to do it just try to chill out. definitely do not eat any large meal and if you want to drink then so be it, but for the drug to better work don't have more than one drink! taking in consideration that you started to boost your testosterone, going to gym etc. etc. and doing what I just told you, I can nearly guarantee that you are going to be back to normal in no time. don't be worried, you're going to get through this and I am sure about that. I think, it was most likely just a stress and a big fat meal issues. plus on the top of it all a few more drink than it should. removing them all would make you fine again.

but I'm quite sure that the big meal thing is a big issue and as an example I can tell you that for me, the first thing in the morning that I do when we want sexy time, is to take 25 mg, as you can understand I take it on an empty stomach and only the 25 mg is enough for me to do the trick and achieve desirable results. however, if we want it at night before sleeping and if I have a big dinner or something like that then it is taking 50 to maybe even 100 mg in order to get the exact same effect as 25 mg on an empty stomach. as you can see - the difference between taking it on an empty stomach and full stomach is huge. plus to that, I also think that stress factor plays an huge role here either. I hope this is going to help you and get you the desired results!

oh yeah man, I do agree with other man who posted here. everything is going to be fine, just make sure that you do it all fine. as for what happened, just don't let it shake you, everything's gonna be alright. I do know what you talk about… I also got a really beautiful and sexy wife but I am having a lot of job stress and I do know that this is why there are sometimes when it simply just does not work right and not as it should. even though I still find her super attractive - it just doesn't goes up. that's the stress. but besides this, I can also guarantee that if you are going to eat right (a good diet) and not eat before taking it plus you are going to eat less and being less stressful then you are going to be super performing man. such things does happen, I guess every man knows this and went through this, you shouldn't be scared and worried as it makes it even worse. I can assume that you already know it. so I wish you good luck. just come back and let us know what you've done and how it worked out

yeah, the same here. I perfectly understand what you talk about but you said that you've had drinks before that. well, you would be surprised how much it affects you and the drug itself. trust me, when drunk nothing works and that's even with a hydrolic lift, however when I am sober (like I don't drink at all or just one beer), the tadalafil is working extremely well and I'm hard as a rock! then later I have realized that this is kind of a choice between fu**ing and drinking and I've made my choice. it pretty much seems you've got to make your choice too now.
