Honey, Look What I've Got
This is a very common scene in my office. A man, about 65, comes to the office — let’s call him George — and during our conversation he is asked about sexual function. He says that his erections are no longer the way they used to be, and they don’t last as long anymore. When asked when the last time they had had sexual intercourse: "Oh, maybe 6 months ago. The Mrs. is not that interested."
I asked if he would like to try some PDE-5 inhibitors (Viagra, Levitra, Cialis). So he is given some samples, a prescription, and he goes home.
I see him six months later, and I asked how the sexual activity is going on at home. He says he tried the pill once, and he hasn’t filled the prescription.
Did it not work? Was it too expensive? Were there terrible side effects?
Let’s wait for his wife’s (Harriet) view on the subject.
