Hell, I might even *buy* some! Those must be some happy mousies yes indeedy! It's great to stay up late, isn't it??

I wonder what their recommended frequency is?

I wonder if (OMG) vascular issues have anything to do with it????

Thought this might make the guys happy! But, being a woman I am tempted to try it too.

Interesting! here's an earlier discussion on this. Viagra increases blood flow to the brain.

I posted a few months ago because I have been taken Cialis for a while (same effect than Viagra) and noticed improvements in my balance and face pain the days after I had taken a pill.
Moreover, these pills really had a stricking effect on my anatomy :-)

One has yet to be careful using such pills that can be dangerous for the heart...

Before I had my first phlebotomy, I basically had no libido for years.
On the day I had my first blood draw, I had a rather unique experieince
(documented in the phlebotomy anyone thread).

I turned into a raving nymphomaniac!
My husband was of course right behind me
from that stage on :lol:

It wore off slowly over a couple of weeks, but happened again
after the next phleb.
Unfortunately after a couple of blood draws, I went back to
having a normal healthy libido.

It was an experieince I will never forget!
If I could bottle that feeling I would be a billionaire.
I take no drugs or vitamins, it was all from the thinning of my blood.

Not sure if this study (2005) has been linked here, but here it is:

Sildenafil Citrate (Viagra) Increases Brain Blood Flow in MS Patients and Could Treat Cognitive Impairment Associated With the Disease

"MS patients have reduced cerebral flow as part of the onset of the disease. This starts at a very early stage of the disease," Dr. Manson said. "We took secondary progressive patients and we gave them 1 dose of Viagra. We found that it acutely increased their cerebral blood flow, which means that the neurons are getting more oxygen. It is quite dangerous to have a low cerebral blood flow."
...
Results show that after treatment with sildenafil the MS patients achieved a 33% +/= 29% increase in grey matter perfusion (P = .03) and a 22% +/= 14% increase in white matter perfusion (P = .01), and that neither diabetic subjects nor healthy controls had a significant change in perfusion.

Are Viagra and Cialis the only two available for this? One is for women and one for men, right? How does one get a prescription for it? Tell your doctor that you can't have an or**sm anymore, possibly due to your MS? Would they likely tell you that if it is related to your MS then your neuro needs to prescribe it for you? I'd like to give it a try, for both problems. :D I use Zestra regularly, which is just a topical gel which works like Ben Gay for your private parts! 8O

A joke that can be appreciated by even the most hardened of CCSVI skeptics and believers alike... :lol:

Yes they are both for men. Cialis is longer lasting than Viagra.
