Comment from: Confused User, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: July 29

I have tried Viagra and Levitra for erectile dysfunction, I am 60. Sometimes I need to take 2 to 4 pills for the pills to work. I think that the pills are old. They can be strong once in a while, but basically, they are fairly weak. My pharmacist says the pills have a shelf life of 1 year, but I think that these may be old when I got them. I don't know. Levitra is a lot cheaper than Viagra, and I think somewhat better, regarding reliability to work for me.

I used Kamagra oral jelly 100 mg which got rid of my erectile dysfunction problems.
