Taking 1mg of Tenex (Guanfacine) every night made me somewhat hypersexual. However, taking 2mg several days ago made me impotent. Can someone please explain how alpha-2 agonists cause impotence?

Taking 1mg of Tenex (Guanfacine) every night made me somewhat hypersexual. However, taking 2mg several days ago made me impotent. Can someone please explain how alpha-2 agonists cause impotence?

Alpha 1&2 receptors: Try one and one half.

It seems that alpha 2 blockade is used in impotence to increase nitric oxide, but it seems you need both alpha 1 and 2 blockade to block vasoconstriction, since alpha 2 also block the release of norepinephrine and that will increase with alpha blockers.
