Avoid Confusion and Learn about Finasteride Dosage

People who are used to taking branded finasteride normally know just the brand name of the drug.  However, when it comes down to buying their generic counterparts, they usually get confused because there are two drugs that are only differentiated by their finasteride dosage.  Normally, if you buy branded treatment medications for benign prostatic hyperplasia, you buy Proscar.  On the other hand, if you are treating male pattern baldness, you buy Propecia.  The problem arises when you buy their generic counterparts as both are named finasteride with their difference only in the finasteride dosage.

The truth is both of the finasteride dosage for treating benign prostatic hyperplasia and male pattern baldness are made using the same ingredients with the only difference found in their finasteride dosage.  But since regular dosing of these drugs, particularly in branded form can become very costly.  This leads most users to switch to generic medications so that they are able to get the most treatment out of their money.  In order not to get confused, you need to remember that the higher finasteride dosage, finasteride 5mg, is the derivative of Proscar and is meant for treating benign prostatic hyperplasia.  The lower finasteride dosage, finasteride 1mg, is the derivative of Propecia and is meant for treating male pattern baldness.

Is Vardenafil hcl 20mg the Right Medication For You?

Often time we experience the ailments and conditions that hinder us from doing our normal activities, or from being happy. For men, erectile dysfunction can be their greatest threat as it can take away their romantic life, their health, their self-esteem, and eventually, their happiness. Looking into the market, you may find a lot of pills for ED treatment today. Among the most popular are Viagra, Cialis, Tadalafil, Avanafil, and Levitra. Although each of them shares the same goal – that is, to cause men to maintain normal erection during sexual activities, these medicines may have different effects and activation period. Considering this, you may now ask yourself – which medication is the right one?

For most doctors around the world, Vardenafil hcl 20mg is the popular drug being recommended for men with ED. Vardenafil hcl 20mg is known to effectively inhibit certain enzymes that triggers the failure of erection. Normally, substances called nitric oxide are being released into the blood stream during sexual excitement so that smooth muscles can be relaxed and contracted, thus allowing sufficient blood flow and accumulation towards the male organ. This activity enables the penis to maintain erection as long as the excitement is there. When the activities are distracted, it causes the overall failure of the system which eventually leads to ED. So how can Vardenafil hcl 20mg help conquer this? Vardenafil hcl 20mg can treat you by preventing this from occurring in the first place. But the question is – is Vardenafil hcl 20mg the right treatment for you? Continue reading “Is Vardenafil hcl 20mg the Right Medication For You?” »

Facts, Fiction and Theory

This morning I was sitting at the computer, probably playing Spider Solitaire. My mind was wandering through various subjects and I suddenly noticed that I was running a scenario in my head. I’ve been told and I have also read that creating scenarios is a bad thing. While I definitely agree that running them in order to try to rigidly script some upcoming event (or scaring the bejeebers out of myself) is not healthy, I’ve always run them.

Being the kind of person I am, I decided a couple of years ago to find a way to use them in a healthy manner, rather than trying to delete them from my thinking, at least for now. I may yet change my mind somewhere down the road and decide that either they aren’t healthy in any way, or that I don’t need them anymore for whatever reason, but at the moment I have a use for them still.

This morning’s scenario was actually a daydream as much as anything, I wasn’t really paying attention to it, so the following isn’t as specific as it might be — at least not until something happened in it. The scenario had me sitting in the vice-principal’s office of a (fictional TV show) high school, talking with the VP about some problem he had with a student for whom I was responsible, perhaps as a guardian. He wanted to know what had happened and I proceeded to tell him.

His next comment within the daydream is what really got me thinking. I don’t remember the exact phrasing; it was a variation of, “That’s not possible. It couldn’t have happened that way because it’s contrary to how the world works.” In the scenario, I blinked in astonishment and started sputtering. Then I shut my mouth because I have learned that when someone is bound to “that’s not possible,” they often refuse to look outside of it. They are so caught up in their view of how the world works, that they cannot or will not look at any evidence or facts that do not support their ideas. Continue reading “Facts, Fiction and Theory” »

Primate Power! The Curious Kung Fu of the Monkey

Animal mimicry has traditionally played a significant role in many kung fu styles. The tiger, crane, mantis and eagle have given the inspiration to fighting theory for centuries. And few styles are as unusual as Tai Sing Mun — Monkey style kung fu. Read on for more insight into the ferocious and unorthodox fighting methods of the monkey!

The Making of the Monkey

The history of today’s monkey style kung fu has its roots in the Northern provinces of China during the 16th century. Popular legend says that the founder of monkey style was a man named Kou Sze, a good fighter with a hot temper. Kou Sze was the head of an armed escort service. During the execution of his services, he helped three young men escape army conscription, injuring several guards in the process. He was immediately arrested and imprisoned for eight years. Supposedly, the prison that held Kou Sze had two sets of gates. The first was guarded by a group of domesticated monkeys. The second gate by human prison guards working for the state. To successfully escape from the prison, one would have to make it past the monkeys first — then the official prison guards. But the guards led an uneventful professional life, as the vicious monkeys would often maim the potential runaways quite badly. Kou Sze would observe the actions of these unusual guards with great interest, observing both their combative interactions with each other — as well as the monkey’s vicious attacks on would-be prison escapees. When Kou Sze had paid his debt to society, he began developing a kung fu style patterned after the ways of the monkey. And so began the study of Tai Sing kung fu. Continue reading “Primate Power!
