These drugs don't work for everyone and they only tend to help if diminished blood flow to the penis is the cause of the erection not being sustained.  I would have him worked up by a urologist who specializes in ED - erectile dysfunction to see what might be some of the causes of his situation.  Once they know the cause they can decide on an appropriate treatment.

Most of the time it is Low T or Testosterone. Get him on Testosterone implants or injections and you will have a new man in bed with you or at least think you do. lol I don't know why urologists don't test for Low T or recommend it. It is a natural hormone that men start losing around 30 and keep losing it. He will not need Viagra or a pump. You can e-mail me me the money you saved on Viagra other E.D. drugs. You will be glad to.

Linda - In addition to the suggestions that healthgal offered, please be sure that your husband is following the instructions for administration of the medication. Sometimes the timing of and amount of food eaten before or after the medication is taken, alcohol consumption, and/or length of time since having taken the medication can affect how it works. The other issue to consider is whether the two of you are experiencing any type of marital difficulties that may be affecting how he is feeling sexually. If so, getting some counseling can be useful.

Neither Cialis or viagra work for me.  I have real low-T and am taking injections weekly but still nothing works.  I am diabetic with generally good control of sugar and blood pressure.  Wife and I have a great sexual attraction towards each other, so that's isn't the problem either.  I can satisfy her beyond her limits but she feels very upset with not being able to satisy me.  She keeps telling me that I do not have to do anything for her since she can't for me...what in the world can we do?

I would suggest putting in a call to the Master & Johnson clinic at Washington University in St. Louis.  They will do a work up at the medical and psychological level.  Then they provice therapy.  They are good, even though Dr. Johnson has passed away.
