I am in a urban urology practice, and I often get young men in for ED evaluations. As soon as I walk in and
see that they are obviously taking muscle building products, I can tell them what the problem is, and they
stop the drinks, potions, and pills, and within a month or two they are back tp normal and thank me.

These comments show how uniformed MD's are about supplements, this Dr. thinks that all supplements
contain Steroids???? Why do doctors continue to comment on things they know nothing about? The majority of
MD's are nothing more that sales agents for big pharma! Go to your doctor and ask him or her how to
actually CURE a problem instead of treating the symptoms and they are lost!

The main ingredient of nitric oxide supplements is the amino acid arginine. It is thought to stimulate the
production and/or inhibit the reaction to NO in the body. The supplement in no way actually contains NO, nor
do they contain "steroids". One thing to watch for would be a hypersensitive response to ED meds.
You may experience the listed side effects, and possibly to a greater degree. Since the higher levels or
arginine would clear your system within a few hours you should be safe if not taking them together or within
2-4 hours or each other. Best case would be arginine supplemt in morning ot afternoon and hold off on the ED
meds until later in the evening. You may also want to be careful the next day if taking arginine.

In the last comment on the second line it should say "and/or increase the response to NO in the
Not sure what I was thinking while typing that line.

Seriously? I cannot believe that some doctors think that every supplement is a steroid.
First of steroids mess with your testosterone levels, NO boosters do not! Amino Acids are usually naturally
occurring in many foods so the idea that Arginine, a non essential amino acide that can be found in foods, is
considered a steroid just goes to show you how some of these doctors wasted 12 years in med school for
nothing. Use your common sense. If an NO Booster or any other vasodilator has the potential to increase your
blood flow, simply do not take it in conjunction with any ED meds! Simple! Cycle off your NO booster or even
Horny Goat Weed for 1-2 days and then use your ED meds.
