Just got back from Chiang Mai â€“ 2 days of doctor and friend visits. â€“ Plavix out â€“ but they did add another blood pressure reducing med â€“ Cardoxa â€“ â€œdoxazosinâ€ this stuff is a inexpensive mild blood pressure reducing Med. which relaxes the blood vessels and also relaxes the muscles in the prostate gland and bladder. I needed a little boost for the Valsartan to get me to 120 without the Plavix. I started back on 1 baby aspirin for blood clotting and will continue to take the Fish Oil â€“ standard twice a day but substituting Blackmores concentrated every other day at lunch , I hope for better cholesterol control. The doctor also commented that my latest cholesterol reading are probably not accurate â€“ because they show it as â€œidealâ€ which he thought was too good to be true â€“ so Iâ€™ll have those tests run again.
Love this Cardoxa - warnings state â€œinform our doctor immediately if you experience an erection that is painful or that lasts for several hoursâ€ â€“ several hours !!!! damn right Iâ€™ll call him up and thank him. Hopefully wont need the Cialis any more â€“ but weâ€™ll see how that will work out. Not supposed to mix the two. But is I get one that lasts over 15 min you can be assured Iâ€™ll be on the phone calling someone to get their ass over here as soon as possible. â€“ haha - pardon the pun.
Trip was great â€“ flew both ways – had dinner with friends each evening and met a old friend from San Sai â€“ young man but old friend â€“ so back to the old routine now but taking it slowly till I get used to the new meds. Now gottâ€™a see if the hip pain, while walking, is going away â€“ maybe take a couple of days but should be better without the Plavix.
