Just ask your PCP and say you need help. That is all I did and she gave Viagra at 4 pills a month!

My PCP told me that viagra was not on the VA formulary, but I was given levitra. Less complications with high blood pressure meds. I got my PCP to write a script for cialis. I was going to get filled on the outside out of pocket; but it was way too expensive almost $250 for ten pills. I refilled my levitra and called it a day lol

Here are some other alternatives and options regarding these meds:

If you have private insurance, visit a non-VA cardiologist and ask for samples of ED meds. They may give you several brands to try.

Get a pill-splitter (the VA can provide them) and take half or fourth instead of a whole pill. Be sure your doc knows you are doing this and also be sure you start taking initially lower doses because these meds can cause headaches or cardiovascular side effects.

If you get scripts filled outside the VA:

- Ask the doc to write for a higher dose and use the pill splitter to break them in half or quarters

- Ask the pharmacist to fill for only the number of pills allowed by the insurance company - or whatever you can afford

Additionally, the $95 or so bucks you can get from being SC for SMC-K are helpful when buying ED meds outside the VA.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
