Around 30 million men in the US have erectile dysfunction (ED). ED is defined as the inability of getting or maintaining an erection sufficient enough for sexual intercourse. There are many causes of erectile dysfunction; some of which are factors that are controllable.

If you are struggling with ED, you may want to start by checking your medicine cabinet. There is a wide range of drugs that can affect the nerves, blood circulation, hormone, and other factors that can increase the risk of developing ED.

How Do I Know If My Medication Is The Cause For My ED?

Visits a doctor or specialist to discuss your concerns. A professional will be able to inform you on the best course of action to take regarding drug-induced ED. You should not stop your medication to alleviate your symptoms. It is important to talk to a professional before you increase, reduce, or discontinue any form of medication.

What Happens If My ED Is Caused By Medication?

Your specialist will assess your condition and determine the best plan of action. Your specialist may work in coordination with your primary care physician to determine if there is an alternative to the medication you are currently taking. As noted, do not stop or start taking medication unless instructed by your doctor.
