Taking 5 mg/day of isosorbide monotrite. Does its long term usage deplete or has affect on nitric oxide in arteries. Any tapering off needed.?

Are there any affects on your penis by taking nitric oxide pills?

Not indicated: Nitric oxide is a gaseous free radical (also known as endothelium-derived growth factor) that acts as a vasodilator in the human body. Although it is involved biologically in vasodilatation leading to penile erection, its clinical use does not include a pill form, but is limited to its application as a gas in the treatment of pulmonary hypertension in the newborn.
