That's what they get for never listening to their wives. All those years when they had good hearing, they were glued to the TV and nothing else mattered. The gutters never got cleaned out. The closet doors falling off the hinges never got fixed. But, there was TV.
Thank you

They used to say that too much sex made you blind, but now they say it can make you deaf! I'm confused.

One thing is for sure, however, sex can make you very happy.

I don't leave my sex life to chance, and I buy my Kamagra (generic Viagra) from www.KamagraFast.co.uk because they post from London, and not the Far East.

Keep using Pharmacutical horse-crap and make your doctor and pharmacutical Industry rich. That is the reason they want forced medicine. They can only kill and injure so many before the public notice.

I can recommend a reputable pharmacy. I've tried both original brand and generic Viagra. There is no difference in effectiveness as far as I can tell between the brand and Generic versions. The real difference is price, no comparison. And this suppliers seem honest and reliable. On the site http://www.trustedbestpills.info I've just placed my 3rd order. Viagra from this site is indeed good for male erection problem treatment.

Psychotropic drugs induced weight gain: a review of the literature concerning epidemiological data, mechanisms and management]

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16389718

Abstract
Weight gain is associated with the use of many psychotropic medications, including antidepressants, mood stabilizers, antipsychotic drugs, and may have serious long term consequences: it can increase health risks, specifically from overweight (BMI = 25-29.9 kg/m2) to obesity (BMI > or =30 kg/m2), according to Body Mass Index (BMI), and the morbidity associated therewith in a substantial part of patients (hypertension, coronary heart desease, ischemic stroke, impaired glucose tolerance, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, respiratory problems, osteoarthritis, cancer); according to patients, psychosocial consequences such as a sense of demoralization, physical discomfort and being the target of substantial social stigma are so intolerable that they may discontinue the treatment even if it is effective. The paper reviews actual epidemiological data concerning drug induced weight gain and associated health problems in psychiatric patients : there is a high risk of overweight, obesity, impaired glucose tolerance, diabetes mellitus, premature death, in patients with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder; and the effects of specific drugs on body weight:

WMC Exclusive: The Mystery Suspect in the U.S.“Obesity Epidemic” by Paula Caplan

http://www.womensmediacenter.com/ex/032708.ht...

snip:

As a clinician, I have heard from countless patients that upon telling their doctors about weight gain after starting psychiatric drugs, they hear back a simple mathematical formula: The more you eat, and the less you exercise, the more weight you gain. Even the little that is known about how the drugs may radically alter weight-gain and hunger mechanisms is too frequently omitted from the picture. Women, who tend more than men to be socialized to blame themselves for every problem, are particularly susceptible to feeling deeply ashamed about weight gain. It can be devastating for a patient who is suffering from anxiety or depression in the first place.

Precisely because of the silences about this topic, there is no way of calculating how much drugs marketed as antidepressants, antipsychotics, and tranquilizers are adding to people’s weight. The total number of antidepressant purchases alone skyrocketed from 88 million in 1997 to 161 million in 2004, and the number of people who reported making such purchases increased from 15 million to nearly 25 million.

As alarming as it is for adults—whose central nervous systems are mature—to suffer weight gain and associated health problems through inadequately tested psychiatric drugs, the problem is worse for children and adolescents. There are exceedingly few long-term studies that could tell us the possible effects of these drugs on those whose central nervous systems have a long way to go to reach maturity. The lack of information is especially worrying in light of the huge increases in prescriptions for these age groups of not only antidepressants and stimulants but even of drugs prescribed as mood stabilizers and anti-psychotics.

The ballooning, unchecked power of pharmaceutical companies over the past two decades in the United States—born partly of the legalization of direct-to-consumer drug advertising, a phenomenon that many people from Canada and other countries find shocking—is, of course, a major contributor to this set of problems. So is woefully inadequate government oversight. U.S. residents—too many of them struggling to deal with the effects of overwork, poverty, violence, and alienation—may easily be persuaded that drugs will provide quick, effective fixes, the only remedy their time and incomes will afford.

Research has shown that a woman walking into a therapist’s or family practitioner’s office is more likely than a man with exactly the same emotional problems or concerns to be diagnosed as mentally ill. With that diagnosis, people often learn to attribute all their problems, including eating more, to mental illness. This makes it especially troubling that in an article last May in the American Journal of Psychiatry, two doctors proposed that obesity be classified as a mental illness. One likely consequence of that would be another massive increase in the prescribing of psychotropic drugs, resulting, no doubt, in another upsurge in obesity statistics.

As a beginning step, anyone who considers taking a psychiatric drug should be able to make that decision one that is fully informed. This means that government, the media, and certainly physicians must be energetic in educating themselves and the public and insisting that pharmaceutical companies disclose the extent of weight gain their drugs cause.

Human Spirit, you wouldn't happen to be a Scientologist would you? I realize they are pretty anti-psychiatry because many of their members were taking psychotropics,getting better mentally,and leaving the church. A lot of the bad rap these drugs have recieved is from people like this,as they pose a threat to their revenue base.
