If you take viagra (sildenafil) prior to sleep would nocturnal erections induce priapism?

If you take viagra (sildenafil) prior to sleep would nocturnal erections induce priapism?

Possibly: Viagra (sildenafil) and any agent used treat erectile dysfunction can induce priapism. If viagra (sildenafil) is taken at night, then it is possible that a normal erection could last longer and cause priapism. Who actually develops priapism depends on their risk factors such as age, comorbidities including diabetes and hypertension, and use of other medications. The more comorbidities a man has, the less likely. ...Read more

PRIAPISM: It is a potential side effect but I have only seen it with patients with pooly controlled sickle cell anemia or elicit drug use. It is safe and effective. If this is not reassuring enough use a small dose first (25 mg) as a trial. The trials before it was fda approved used several times the eventual recomended dose to determine safety. ...Read more

Will a low dose of viagra (sildenafil) (25;50mg) definitely cause priapism in young healthy male?

Priapism and Viagra (sildenafil): No, rarely. Young men that I treat sometimes use viagra (sildenafil) for longer sexual play and for more vigorous sexual activity. Some men use these medications to maintain erections when they use condoms. Thus, preventing pregnancy and other exposure to some sexually transmitted infections.

I have suffered a priapism tow months ago, I do have partial erection at night is it possible that I recover without installing prosthesis implant?

Any event that leads to significant scarring, such as prolonged priapism and related to sickle cell disease may make it more difficult to have normal erections. However that does not mean you will need a prosthesis. Consult a urologist. ...Read more

Can cycling cause erectile dysfunction? I feel numbness. Will cycling damage nerves? Is is curable? I get erection if I take 25 mg Viagra (sildenafil).
