Husband has new prescription for Viagra!

My husband has just gotten a prescription for Viagra! We are in our early 50s and he has a newspaper route as well as a "real" job. He is tired/sleepy all the time.... We are planning a weekend trip to celebrate our anniversary later this month....... Any thoughts/suggestions?

What's a Viagra? Is it like a Vega?

Don't let him take a pill now. That way, you'll know there will be better things to come on your anniversary.........

Jhammock,

Suspect you're not really looking for "suggestions" on what to do on your weekend...you're looking to find out if the darned stuff works, right?

You do realize none of the Viagra users on the list are gonna 'fess up?

Wishing you both a wonderful anniversary trip...and make sure you get enough sleep, he he he....

That's TMI, especially after 6 posts. What will you be like once you're comfortable here?

I have taken it twice. Judging by my experience, I would advise you take along a broad-minded girlfriend, because you may not be able to handle all that hubby can dish out.

I didn't tell my partner that I had taken it; all she said afterward was ˇJesus!

I took it once more. The main thing I noticed was I you almost have to decide."OK, it's time to give her a rest". Otherwise I think you could go forever. Not that I mind that of course... After I while I actually thought "I wonder if she has any cute friends nearby"? I felt kind of disappointed like you feel when you have a great bed of hot coals in the grill and you are all out of meat to cook.

Jhammock, after reading your posts I have to ask:

What, precisely, is your question about early retirement?

I'm beginning to think it was a mistake to make this post. I have not gotten the response that I was expecting. I assure all of you that I was not trying to make this appear as lewd or off color. I was just trying to get some information because I really don't know a lot about this medication, plus the fact that my husband is overweight and is a heart patient. I guess I should ask someone how to withdraw this whole thread.

Well most of us are not doctors, so one would think your DH cleared that part with whoever gave him the medicine.

Anyway, there is a lot of info in this thread. Reponses to this drug and motivations for using it vary. As they always say on the internet, YMMV.

Don't forget, you introduced the thread with the information that you and hubby were going away for a love weekend. If love is lewd, I'm a frog.

Ha

With all respect, your original post really doesn't sound like a request for information about a medication. It sounds like an enthusiastic announcement about your upcoming anniversary celebration with your husband and his new friend Viagra. Not sure what response you expected. I read a lot of legitimate questions about medicines and this sure didn't sound like one.

Well, no big deal. Enjoy the weekend and I suggest you have your husband address any lingering concerns about its safety with his personal physician before use, because viagra and heart problems can in some cases be a bad combination.
