Missed your chance to meet Hillary ... ;-)

Tried such remedies in the past but am wed to Flomax (most cost effective prescription drug)for prostate and potassium citrate for stones. Giving consideration to “Tuna” procedure to get off Flomax as Medicare will pay for it. Sometimes it’s a bitch getting older.
Sorry to hear- I was glad that it seemed to work for me
one day I just went to the store and got every bottle of “male’ vitamins and supplements I could grab- and it definitely made a difference in that department

I also looked online to study what foods boost testosterone and are good for health- i figure it couldnt hurt
Here, a picture of Obama might work even better.
Beer can cure being gun-shy in public restrooms.
