I am almost 3 years post-stroke. I get PT and OT twice per week. I still spend most of my day in the wheelchair. My PT says this is what is causing the excruciating hip pain. My hip rotates out externally due to the stroke. I am on the verge of increasing my pain killers to twice/day. Has anyone had a resolution to hip pain through PT? I am beginning to have my doubts.
Business-financed research indicates it could help guys that have had troubling attaining orgasm. “There are lots of guys who have, at most, quite light difficulties attaining an erection but who can’t easily ejaculate.
The trials contained nearly 3,600 males averaging about 55 years old. The men commonly took Tadalafil for 12 months, at different doses.
The enhanced capability to ejaculate and reach orgasm was found despite the harshness of a guy’s erectile dysfunction, as stated by the investigators.
Paduch noted that as much as 18% of males have a normal erection but do not ejaculate, or take quite a while to do this. The difficulty occurs more frequently in older guys, but impacts those of ages.
“We do not understand the reason why this happens. Our study demonstrates Tadalafil 20mg can help!”
He explained that many guys have difficulty achieving and ejaculating climax, but few discuss this. “For decades it was thought that only females had difficulties with climax, but our research demonstrates that orgasmic dysfunction might be just as common among men because it’s among females,” Paduch stated.
“More research becomes necessary, but we are optimistic our findings can result in a treatment for most guys who can’t now attain sexual gratification,” he added.
A number of the investigators involved within the study are workers of the business and others are advisors for Company.
The media reports the patent on Viagra has come to a finish today. This implies that other drug companies are now able to create their own variants of the drug.
Viagra was made to take care of angina and hypertension. Investigators found that it wasn’t especially powerful for either state but due to temporarily raising blood circulation to the dick, that it did lead to sustained erections.
Producers Pfizer have held the exclusive right to advertise the drug (known as a patent) for the last 15 years because it was certified in 1998. Since the patent has expired other pharmaceutical companies have the ability to advertise their particular versions of sildenafil citrate 100mg or 50mg.
Chances are the cost of those unbranded versions (generics) will be lower, and therefore Pfizer will face competition for revenue. They might need to drop their costs in response.
What does this mean when a drug comes off-patent?
A patent is a kind of intellectual property that protects new creations. It provides whoever owns the patent the right to stop others from making, using, importing or selling the innovation without permission.
Medications are managed by patent laws, meaning an unique business has the exclusive right to advertise a drug they’ve found and developed. Before the patent expires other businesses aren’t permitted to create or advertise the exact same medication.
Initially, when pharmaceutical companies find a brand new drug they’re issued with a supplementary protection certificate (SPC).
Regular patents within the EU are valid for up-to 20 years to permit time for the drug to be examined in clinical trials and developed completely.
Still, once the drug is eventually approved and given a license to be offered, the SPC enables an additional period of up to 15 years for the business to advertise the drug alone.
Viagra was certified in 1998 and had a 15year exclusivity period that came to an end a couple of days ago.
This really is a ‘non proprietary’ title, meaning it’s not protected by a patent no company possesses the right to the generic title. Once a patent has expired, other businesses can offer them under this generic title and create their very own variants of the drug.
Generic forms of the drug are generally cheaper since the research and development expenses were less, even though they comprise exactly the same active ingredient as the branded merchandise.
The medications can cost as much as 80% less compared to the medications, and therefore prescribing them can save lots to the NHS of cash.
Two days ago the pharmaceutical company Teva UK issued a news release reporting they had created a variant of generic sildenafil.
Individual information about Viagra (sildenafil)
It’s obtainable in pill form in three different strengths and it is taken one-hour before sex, a maximum of once per day. When there is sexual arousal it works to restore erectile function by boosting blood circulation to the dick.
Who may use it?
Though there are several men for whom the drug might be unsuitable, sildenafil is relatively safe for most men with ed. The little increase in blood pressure might suggest the drug is unsuitable for people that have a history of severe heart or liver disease, since it causes the blood vessels within the entire body to dilate.
Before you begin taking sildenafil you always ought to have an individual risk evaluation from your GP or the physician in control of your own care.
Sildenafil is not acceptable for girls or kids under age 18.
If you’re taking medications which contain nitrates because the blend could cause a possibly dangerous decline in your blood pressure don’t take sildenafil.
nausea (feeling ill)
vomiting (being ill)
Sildenafil is connected with a rather little, rare threat of heart problems like angina, heart attack or heart rhythm issues. That occurs more frequently in individuals with existing cardiovascular diseases, and that’s why guys with cardiovascular disease should be evaluated before being appointed sildenafil.
Can I get sildenafil about the NHS?
Sildenafil can be prescribed by your GP provided that it’s safe to do so. Nevertheless, in certain cases you might require to pay the complete price of the drugs.

I have not had to take Lovenox or heparin but I know of people on another list that have done this though their pregnancy and had perfect babies. I belong to other Yahoo groups that would have some information for you. I am in Factor V Leiden and thrombosis groups. Also, on the list they discussed a Yahoo group specifically for pregnant or wanting to be pregnant people with clotting disorders. The focus is the clotting disorders like Factor V Leiden, Protein C and S deficiencies and more though anyone is welcome. Search the Yahoo groups with some of the phrases above. If you can’t find them I will find out their exact names.
Lovenox does not cross the placenta and that is the drug of choice for clotters that are pregnant. Otherwise you would be on Coumadin. However, Lovenox is by injection into your abdomen usually the lower abdominal area. I heard it makes you bruise and it hurts with the injections. Very pricey also. If you want a baby I guess you need to go that way.
Thank you for the info, I appreciate it. I had an electrocardiogram, it was normal, they checked the arteries along my neck with an ultrasound, I also had two MRIs. All my tests came back normal. It was really weird, I was on birth control 8 years, and then the stroke finally happened. I never had a stroke before that. I did switch from the pill to the patch though and again, my cholesterol could have been better. I’m not sure what a PFO is. Thank you again.
Stephanie- Lovenox is a low molecular version of heparin and it is effective in dealing with clots, it is injected into the fatty layer of skin the same way diabetics inject insulin. A. P.F.O. is a defect of an opening on the back of the heart that is supposed to close shortly before or after being born. An EKG won’t always signal the presence of a P.F.O. the abbreviation stands for Patent(open) Foramen Ovale this is an extra opening to allow maximum blood flow between mother and baby during pregnancy and either a bibble study or Transesgheal Endoscopy is needed to diagnose the presence of a P.F.O. in an adult. Many Clinics(especially those connected with a Medical School) have High Risk Pregnancy Clinics that could probably guide you through any family planning concerns. Kate

Have a look at the information on Homocysteine-the birth control pill is a folic acid inhibitor and also check out whether you have a PFO-Did you have a TEE? In younger people it often 2 things that cause TIA or stroke-clotting problem and something else.
I am new to this group and have a few questions. I’ll try to keep this as short as possible: I am in my mid twenties, had a TIA (mini-stroke) last year. I’ve turned into a lab rat for the past year, had every blood test known to man. The doctor’s have concluded that they have absolutely no idea what caused my stroke other than that I was on birth control at the time and my cholesterol was a little high. To be safe, I was taken off of birth control, put on a baby aspirin a day and have sense remained stroke free. Now, I would like to start planning a family, the doctor advises against it due to risk of another stroke, however, if I insist on children, the doctor’s suggestion is to put me on a medicine called lovenox (injected heparin I think). Has anyone had any experience with blood clots and pregancy or lovenox? Any feedback or experience you could provide me would be greatly appreciated. I’m at a total loss and do not yet want to give up the chance at motherhood.
My husband had a stroke of the eye last night.The name for it is Central Retinal Artery Occlusion.Because a blood clot in the artery behind the eye ,he had a sudden,painless,complete loss of vision in one eyeThe damage can not be reversed .I am in shock yet. We are to go see the doctor today ,We were in the emer.room most of the night.
Thanks for listening Nancy
I was extremely depressed (‘anger turned inward’ resulting in a person being ‘frozen’the first full year after my stroke and though I never had suicidal ideation I did say, many times, “It would have been better if I had just died”, to which my wonderful Peggy wuold say, “Now hush.”
She has worked as a nurse in several large assisted homes with elderly retirees and has heard various ones ask, many times, “Why doesn’t God
just take me home?” It is extremely frustrating to not be able to do much of what we previously could do, usually “do easily”.
