Can bronchitis cause impotence?

Not directly, but

Erectile_dysfunction
If you are not breathing adequately, your body will stay geared for "fight or flight" and not relax so the "feed or breed" (PSNS) can take over. So too much working to breathe will inhibit erection. Optimize lung disease first, then see Urologist if problem persists.

Impotence causes and treatment?

LOTS!!

Stringio
Many many reasons. Ask your doctor about any medications that you currently are taking that could have impotence as a side effect. May need a sleep study that can help to determine the cause as to whether it is physical vs psychological. Blood work to check testosterone levels. So you can see a lot goes into this answer. Please see your physician as it may be treatable.

Does methadone cause impotence?

Yes, it can

Erectile_dysfunction
Hello. Yes, methadone can certainly cause this due to long term opioid use and its effects on your testosterone. You should ask your provider to check a hormone panel if you are experiencing erectile dysfunction with opioid use. I hope this helps!

Fluoxetine
Medications that affect serotonin SSRI, like prozac can reduce sexual interest (libido) and cause delayed orgasm. It is uncommon to cause erectile dysfunction except for just loss of interest. These meds help people feel content which may be the reason they are satisfied with less sex. There are several things that can be done to help. Talk with your prescriber about alternative treatments.
