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?

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. The other is suppression by atenolol; night erections occur as the drug wears off. Either way, it's likely that a pde5 drug like viagra (sildenafil) or (much better in my opinion) Cialis will help. Even in psychogenic cases of ed, marked improvement in studies. ...Read more

My mother was on atenolol 12.5 once a day, but is now on metroprolol 50 mg. Twice a day. She now feels extreme fatigue. Why is this drug so different?

Big difference: That's a big step up in dosage of the class of drug known as beta blockers. 12.5 mg of Atenolol would likely be equivalent to 12.5mg of Metoprolol twice a day. Beta blockers as a rule can cause fatigue or lack of energy, and it's dose dependent meaning the more you take the greater the chances you will feel these side effects. ...Read more
