    I am 46 and find finding it harder these days to keep up the stamina and getting up the firmness like some men seen to have no problem these days at my age. I have had my annual checkup and no issues and I have tried Androgel and other meds with no help some like Viagra had to many side effects. I have had my levels checked and was down at the time so went on the Androgel . I don't see any change after taking this for some times now. Is there something else I can take and help with the firmness and stamina? I have in the pat taken Horney goat weed that gives you a headache. Thanks for any tips and info on this .

    I take 6 grams of HGW every day and have no adverse side effects. What brand and dosage did you take? I was taking source naturals and now take vitacost.

    I also take source naurals l-Cirtulline 6 grams a day.

    I rank them one, two in effectiveness.

    I have also taken Panax (Korean red Ginseng), Tongkat ali, Muira Puama (liquid and tablet) with little effect.

    I have taken Yohimbe 1000mg and it is the best at producing an erection but the side effects make it not worth taking.

    I don't take anything that boosts testosterone because of a family history of prostate cancer.
