Fit 65 yo male on Coumadin (warfarin) & atenolol. Developed waking ED even with self stim. Nightly I have multiple erections why? Would ED drugs help?
Psychogenic, Usually: Couple of possibilities. The most likely is stress or other psychogenic cause - the nighttime erections eliminate obstructive anatomic problems.

Even in psychogenic cases of ed, marked improvement in studies. ...Read more
