really strange side effect
« on: December 23, 2007, 09:50:47 AM »
tja, how to discribe this one... scince i take my meds i get during the day - mostly - without reason a hard-on and basically the whole night during sleep. so, i know about the phaenomen the men get a hard-on in the night, but mostly 30-50 minutes in the early morning hours during sleep. has something to do with a special kind of sleeping phase... but during the whole night??? i know some of you might say what a lucky guy - but the whole night - nearly every night??
ok, the one or another night it was helpful...  :)

wow what a side effect... the Cialis and other "hard-on " pills warn about one for more than four hours as a very serious problem.....what meds are you taking?...you may want to have a good  DR / compounding Pharmacy be sure you haven't some how created a "super Viagra or Cialis"   
In general the usual meds have the opposite effect.....meanwhile enjoy when you can
remember the good times...honor the past but don't live there

During the first few months of treatment, that is a pretty standard side effect of taking efavirenz (Sustiva / Stocrin) before going to bed .. except that, for some strange reason, not many of us complain about that one ;)

One of the reasons could be that a HIV drugs erase a level of testosteron which has been depleted by a virus.Google on that.
