Erectile Dysfunction: You've made a smart decision to wrap it up & use a condom when having sex. However, your erectile dysfunction may be due to loss of sensitivity from that specific brand of condoms. Try using a different brand that's thinner or (claims to be) more sensitive. Of course, your ED may also be due to performance anxiety. BTW, if you haven't already received yours, ask your FamilyDoc about HPV vaccine. ...Read more

What are good medicines to manage my impotence while being on Viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride). My problem is not with anorgasm but having and maintaining an erection.

What are good medicines to manage my impotence while being on Viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride). My problem is not with anorgasm but having and maintaining an erection.

Would switch med.: I really don't like medicating the side effect of another medication. My first thought would be to see if that issue goes away with a different med, other than Viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride). If it doesn't, of if you just really think Viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) works well for you, you'd have to take the Viagra-type meds to help with your erection. ...Read more

Are there any other options then avodart hate the side effects had every bad symptom from inability maintain an erection, decrease in sex drive, problem ejaculating. Was taking for slow urine flow rate. I stopped taking is there any over-the-counter

Finasteride: Finasteride is an alternative to avodart (dutasteride). Unfortunately, it has a very similar side effect protocol to Avodart (dutasteride) as it has the same mechanism of action.

Alpha blockers like tamsulosin, sildosin or alfuzosin are very good at improving a patient's force of stream. However, they too can cause a decrease in your ejaculate. They should not however interfere with your sex drive. They would really provide your best chance for symptomatic relief.

I would also speak to your urologist about the possiblity of surgical intervention. However this too will likely wipe out your ejaculate.

As for alternative products, there have been two randomized control trials looking at saw palmetto published in the nejm that have shown that it does not work. As for other products, I do not know of any hard data showing that they work. ...Read more

I have problems achieving and maintaining an erection. What should I do? Do I have ed?

It's possible: You're a bit young for ed. Make sure you exercise regularly and drink plenty of water (8-10 glasses a day). If you're heavy, weight loss improves sexual function in most. Also if you drink alcohol, I suggest you stop drinking since it negatively affects sex. If you've done all and no improvement see a doctor for evaluation and hormone testing. ...Read more
