Men's Health Overview

Testosterone is the primary sex hormone and anabolic steroid in males.[3] In humans, testosterone plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as testes and prostate, as well as promoting secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle and bone mass, and the growth of body hair.[4] In addition, testosterone in both sexes is involved in health and well-being, including moods, behaviour, and in the prevention of osteoporosis.&am...

Weight gain from Finasteride ?

have been on finasteride for about 2 years now, and seems to me , i have developed increased abdominal flab,no boobs(yet)!, but definately feel an increase around waist and below,literature available , says weight gain is not a side effect, but seems to me , that it might be , have picked up about 7 to 8 lbs. would be interested in others experiences along this line , thx ## I can confirm from personal experience that both finasteride and saw palmetto caused rapid weight gain in the lower abdomen. I've tested this out and found that it takes a few weeks after stopping for my metabolism to pick up again. My theory is that a hormonal imbalance is created when taking drugs with DHT blocking properties. ## I started taking Finastride 4 months ago and since then I have put on 10 pounds. ...

E20 yellow (ochre) oval pill

This is a pill, girl pinkie nail size. Imprint is E 20 or (E20). It is golden/yellow/ochre in colour. Flat top and bottom. Not fully rounded. Solid pressed pill not a capsule. ## i want to know purpose of this pill ## Got this pill as a freebee in the mail...want to know the purpose of it. I don't think this sort of marketing is appropriate and the legality of it is questionable. ## It is likely a generic Cialis (Tadalafil) produced by an Indian pharmaceutical. A PDE-5 inhibitor, Tadalafil is a male erectile dysfunction medication. Did it look like this? ## i want to know is the pill e20 and what is it's purpose ## are they legit ? ## Might be a Cialis Generic from a non US country. Look up combitic global caplet PVT. LTD tadalafil. ## Yes they are legitimate.

blue diamond shaped pill 100 on both sides

This is a big diamond shaped pill with 100 on both sides ## Hi Carol, Based on my research, the blue diamond shaped pill you have with 100 on both sides, is said to be identified as a generic form of foreign Viagra (sildenafil); used to treat ED. Someone in another thread had also mentioned that it was sold under the brand name Kamagra, and is claimed to have been manufactured & shipped out of India. Do you know if this was ordered online by chance? ## I found a blue diamond shaped pill says 100 on both sides could this be a generic viagra? ## I have found the same blue diamond shape 100 imprinted on BOTH sides??? Viagra usually has nothing on the other side or the manufacturer's logo/name....ive done more then enough research and this is the closest i've came to finding out...

Cialis and mood swings irritability

I'd just like to know if anybody else has any experience of seeming to be more irritable and emotional during the time that they are getting the effects from Cialis? ## These are not normal side effects of the medication and I haven't read posts from many other people experiencing such a problem. Medications can affect everyone differently, so it may be caused by the Cialis/Tadalafil, or it could be caused by something else entirely. Have you contacted your doctor to discuss the problem, yet? ## My husband takes Cialis and has experienced SEVERE mood swings when he is on it. He is also having chest pains. I have asked him to discontinue for one month to see. ## My husband, too, becomes very moody and irritable when he is on Cialis. Consequently he only takes it spasmodically. ##...

blue pill diamond shaped with word ultra

I found this blue diamond shape with the word "Ultra" on one side, I would like to know what's this pill for. ## Hi Katie, From what I could gather, a blue diamond shaped pill with "Ultra" on one side, is reported to be a Mexican version of generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate). This medication is used for treating ED. Rumors suggest that this particular pill is allegedly being sold in Mexico at various cruise ports...Although there's no real way to verify this outside of going to Mexico, these two threads linked below seem to be the only leads I can find that mention this pill: 1).

pill from mexico looks like viagra

It's a blue pill that looks like Viagra. Says ULTRA on one side and is blank on the other. Package said 100 mg sildenafil. Can anyone verify its contents? ## Unfortunately, being from Mexico, I cannot verify the contents of this tablet. However, I can tell you that Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, runny nose, and priapism. Is there anything else I can help with? ## It is not Viagra. My wife uses it 3 times a day to stop pain in her stomach lining. It works great and no side effects

End of bottle effectiveness?

OK. Kind of a weird question but has anyone noticed their androgel losing effectiveness toward the end of the bottle? I know I'm not imagining things. I'll start to feel droopy and my muscles hurt. I'll mention it to my wife and the first thing she'll ask is - are you at the bottom of the bottle again - and sure enough I am. Was really hurting this week - switched to a full bottle and feel better already. Thoughts? Your experience? ## Hello, Tooslowjoe! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you've had. Liquids, gels and ointments do tend to degrade much faster than other forms of medications, but I'm not finding any other reports of this issue. I know they usually say that shaking it or anything isn't necessary, but perhaps from now on try gently ...

Combining 10 and 20mg Caverject

My doctor said to increase dosage from 20mg to 25 and then in small increments if necessary. He has prescribed both 10 and 20 mg packets. Do I use the same syringe and fluid to mix both vials or use separate syringes and fluids which would result it having to have two injections, 20 from the first and then half of the 10 mg syringe to give 25 mg? ## Same problem. What I did since 40 mcg is not available th EU, is use two vials of powder and one ampule of benzile water supplied. Mix the ampule with one vial of powder then transfer to the other vial of powder to get 40mcg then withdraw 30mcg (. 75 ml)
