Erection problem: I see asmanex as your asthma medication and methylprednisone. Methylprednisone is usually temporary and if that's the reason for erection dysfunction, then it should restore soon after it's discontinued. Asmanex doesn't list erectile dysfunction as a side effect. If there is any other medication you are on, let us know.

Fatigue is often the cause for erectile dysfunction. Uncontrolled asthma likely causes fatigue. I have not heard of methyprednisolone causing ED. More likely, you were prescribed this medication because your asthma got worse and it would take days for the asthma to become under control .
