    Switching from Cialis to Viagra


    I have used cialis for a year and built up a tolerance. Would a switch to viagra be beneificial or did my body just build up a tolerance to PDE5 inhibitors in general?

    Has anyone had a similar experience?

    I have been on Cialis from the day it came out first I was on 20 mgs every 3 days then when the 5 mgs tabs came out I was put on them everyday. I have no problems with my wood as long as I keep my E2 levels in the sweet spot and I am 68 yrs old.

    I have a lot on my plate been on TRT over 32 yrs had Heart Bypass Sugery been on a lot of pain meds found out this lower the effect of AI meds to lower E2 levels.

    This is a copy of a file I made about using Arimidex to keep levels good.
    ============================== ============================== ================
    How To Take Arimdex and not go down on your Estradiol to Low.

    What I found is if you go to low taking arimidex, it's the length of time your to low, if your too low say for 8 weeks it can take your body a longer time to make more Estradiol. Bottom line is to know how not to go to low. Keep a log on your dose and how you feel men going to low can't get it up taking Viagra. I went to low when I first tried Arimidex and did not know about going to low or how one feels to low, so I was low a good 8 weeks. I did not know I was low until my next labs.

    The best gage I have found to control your Estradiol levels is to gage your night time and morning wood. At good levels or what I call the sweet spot you get your night time and morning wood back so strong it will wake you up and you can hang a coat on it.

    Most men do good taking .25 mgs or 1/4 of a 1mg. pill, I use a pill cutter to cut the small pill in half then I stand it on the cut end and use a single edge razor to cut this in half. A good way to take arimidex is by how high your levels are. I tested over 90 pg/ml so we tried doing .5 mgs every other day after 8 weeks my next set of labs showed it did not move below 90, test said >90. So we did .5 mgs. every day in about 2 weeks I got some strong night time and morning wood back after not having them for many yrs.

    I kept doing this dose and in 8 weeks my next set of labs said <20 back in the day labs were like this they did not have to good labs we have today they could not read lower the 20. My Dr. told me this looks to low to stop taking the Arimidex. The one thing I noticed was my wood stopped and stopping the Arimidex my wood came back in about 7 weeks my next test at 8 weeks was 24 pg/ml. So we went back on the Arimidex but the Dr. told me to take .5 mgs every 3 days I was on this dose not a week and lost wood. This is when I figured out going to low you lose wood. And the longer your too low the longer it takes to get levels back up.

    I stopped the arimidex right away and got my wood back in 4 days. I then after playing with the dose for a time found the best dose is .25mgs every 2 to 3 days.

    So lets say your labs are less the 50 pg/ml if your take .5 mgs you can go down so dam fast your miss the sweet spot of your wood and go to low. It's best with lower levels 50 and under to do less Arimidex .25mgs every 2 days if later your lose wood when it comes back go to every 3 days.

    I have found estradiol is the hardest hormone to control, it goes up or down from month to month some times I need .25mgs every 2 days other times I need .25mgs everyday most of the time I do well on every 3 days.

    So between wood and labs I do great and so do most of the men I have told this to. I keep a log on how much I am taking and how I feel. Doing this and reading back in my log I was able to tell when I was going to high or to low my Dr. lets me dose my arimidex by how I feel.

    Over the yrs. I have posted this story until I am blue in the face.

    It's hard to say there is a lot to this how old are you are you over weight on a lot of Testosterone the more you need the higher E2 can become. But I feel better to have good T levels and take an AI to keep E2 in check. If your less then 50 pg/ml on labs it might only take a week. I was above the top of the range over 90 so it took .5 mgs every other day for about 8 weeks just to get into the range then I did .5 mgs every day and in about 2 weeks I got my Rem Sleep Wood back this means your in the sweet spot.

    Need to look for other factors that may explain your underlying pathology
