Another point of view occurs to me.
Sex involves a certain amount of fleshly
thinking, which, while not sin, being married folks, distracts from one's pure concentration on God.
Perhaps God intends us to move away from having sex as we get old, to be able to think on him without distraction?
And thus, it is normal for our bodies to loose sexual abilities or appatites we had when younger.
Going back the other way, though, sex, I am sure, is deliberately intended by God, to greatly enhance intimacy in
marriage, so we might think twice before putting sex on the shelf, seeing we have these little pills.
Regarding some of the nuts and bolts of this thing, checking the Internet, the several
leading brand names in this line of meds, and there are differences between them.
It appears that
Cialis is not affected by a meal or drinks, whereas the other brands Viagra and Levitra are affected by food
and drink between the taking of the pill and sex.
There is much information on the Internet comparing the pros and cons of these brands.
I should have mentioned that some of
us, are already on a suite of "over sixty" meds, so our doctors must take this into account.
I have run into a few comical situations, in procuring these pills.
Being retired US
Military, I get meds free at the local airbase.
They filled my doctor's order for Levitra, and
I was very happy, until I called in a reorder about 60 days later, and was informed I had already been given the 90 day allocation
in my first order - What a bummer!
So, I got my young doctor to fax another prescription to Walmart.
This means I would pay out of pocket.
They don't give these pills away! They are definitely
I soon discovered the price for my pill dose of 5 milligram was the same as their sale
price for 20 milligram.
So, apologetically, I called my doctor back to see if she would rewrite
the prescription for 20 milligrams split into four pieces ( the Air Force gave me a pill splitter.)
did so which saved me significant $.
A year or so later, I just went back to the Air Force pharmacy
with a prescription for Levitra, only to find out they now carry Viagra, but no longer, Levitra.
again I went back to Walmart, for a supply.
But, I soon I will need to diplomatically ask my new
doctor for a Viagra prescription (free at the airbase but limited allocation) to be used when not using the Levitra from
I think it is a good idea for one should check out everything and then approach your
doctor with your proposal.
The doctors are too busy, there are too may aspects, which med,
what dose, will insurance cover, etc. etc.
