I've taken Viagra for years and have always split the 100mg simply by biting them in half (incisors) when I take it. Sure, the cut is a little irregular, but it does the job pretty well 50-50.

Question: It seems to me that Viagra is having less effect than it used to. Of course I'm 65 now and started taking them at 60. Has anyone found Levitra to work better? I tried Cialis, but I don't think it worked as well as V.

<quoted text>If the swiss make their pill cutters like they do their prostitutes then I definitly will invest in your product. By the way, its a known medical fact that you don't need viagra to achieve a cro bar like state. firstly, get rid of you stinky old wives with mothballs between their legs, that would make even me flaccid. Secondly go out and find a nice 18 year old girl with big lips and a tight ass and fake tits, I guarentee she will light your wick.
Really,are you supposed to be funny? How old are you,fourteen?

The same goes for anyone else who has the weird desire to post stupid,immature statements. No one wants to read it.

look around,look at yourself,you're the problem.

I am going to begin an anti-moron crusade on the internet where ever I find it.

The best pill cutter is a single sided razor blade that is used in paint scrapers.

I have done a little research about erectile disfunction and have found that if you have a high cholesterol problem, it can also lead to E.D. Makes sense, since if your arteries are clogged with cholesterol, then it will make blood flow to your private areas difficult. Viagra, Levitra, and the rest work because it helps blood to curculate better. Maybe you should get your cholesterol checked and look into vitamins and nutrients that help increase blood flow. Maybe this will help the problem without the use of E.D. meds. Be sure to check with your doctor first, even before taking some suppliments. Good Luck.
These pills dont work the way you imagine. They directly work on the vessels that supply the blood to the penis - not the general arterial system. The explanation is complicated but if you are interested Google the subject.

splitting cialis works for a while but i noticed it looses most of its potency within 2 months the other half or the pills in package dont work as well and heartburn goes along with it i have to buy fresh ones every 2 months im 55 in good shape but i take zanax for blood pressure which can disrupt sex life even with cialis

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#fyin for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

My pharmacist just said I shouldn't split Cialis because the coating makes it last 36 hrs, and splitting it makes the ingredients go into your blood faster, raising something (other than your tool). He also said the remaining piece loses it's potency while you wait for the next time. I'm not sure I agree, but wanted to hear if anyone else has experience or knowledge on this. They're too expensive NOT to split.
I can verify with Viagra, that the half you leave for later DOES lose it's potency. That's why there's a blue coating to keep it fresh.

Im 60 going out with a 23 yr old. Having a great time. Viagra makes me confident everything will go great. It does. No age limit for sex.

I cut 50 mg Viagra into about ninths. I only need 5-7 mg to make a difference for me. I cut the pill into little pieces and put them into #4 clear capsules from the health food store.

The op really has no idea how pills are priced. When you buy a pill you are paying for the research and that is split equally across all doses. The base chemicals on bills are only a tiny portion of the cost.

Has anyone ordered pills online without a prescription? I've heard a lot of those online sites offering cheap pills are a waste of money. Any thoughts?
