has any one taken L-arginine in combination with ED pills? My ED specialist wants me to take 2 tables of 500mg twice a day. Pleas let me know your experience.

Prior to surgery for a few years I took 1000mg of L-arginine and I am thinking of starting again soon… Lots of information out there on this amino acid and based on what I have read it is good for blood flow and specifically Arginine changes into nitric oxide, which causes blood vessel relaxation (vasodilation-same thing ED drugs do).

Early evidence suggests that arginine may help treat medical conditions that improve with vasodilation, such as chest pain, clogged arteries (called atherosclerosis), coronary artery disease, erectile dysfunction, heart failure, intermittent claudication/peripheral vascular disease, and blood vessel swelling that causes headaches (vascular headaches).

Arginine also triggers the body to make protein and has been studied for wound healing, bodybuilding, enhancement of sperm production (spermatogenesis), and prevention of wasting in people with critical illnesses.

Thanks BD,

I read the literature on the internet but I wanted to discuss with real people who used it.

Thanks

I take 1 pill a day. I don't know if it has helped but figure it can't hurt. I've been having success with the Levitra for some time now. Perhaps I'll start taking more of the L-arginine since it doesn't give me the headache like levitra does.
