MAN, i went thru those 30 tablets like nothing, WHEW, they were great. I could really use the other 60. I have to say your pills are one of the better generic viagras I have expereienced so far on my comeback trail. do you offer the the much quicker and more flavorful melt tabs. if you do, I would like to possibly upgrade on the remaining 60 (if they have not been shipped yet) It all depends on the price difference, just let me know. maybe we can work something out. - glenn
