Priapism=not good


Prolonged erection that is unrelated to stimulation and is unrelieved by ejaculation =priapism which is painful and is considered an emergency. If not treated, which can lead to tissue death and thus injury to the penis and functional recovery may be in jeopardy. So if this is troubling u, call doc ASAP. Good luck

How can I avoid prolonged erections?

Love wisely & well


At your age, most men get frequent erections, though not so often as during the teens and twenties. Normal sexual activity with a partner or by yourself. If someone has made you feel guilty or concerned about this natural phenomenon or the thoughts that go with them, then talk to someone with common sense who's not trying to manipulate you through fear. And love responsibly.

No


Nature limits this. In fact, there is some evidence that extreme efforts to avoid ejaculation are harmful to the prostate both in the short and long runs, as well as making life -- which is already hard enough -- much more difficult. Learn about your body, and use your sexuality responsibly and wisely.

Generally an erection lasting over 4 hours is considered prolonged. If it is due to ED medications, it should resolve spontaneously, but consultation with a urologist is suggested.

Trazadone!


This is a definite side effect of this drug. However, male hormones, and ED drugs will do it too.

Don't worry


I'm glad you have somebody special. This happens to many men from time to time, especially after prolonged arousal. Nobody really understands why, but it's not something to worry about unless you have other symptoms / signs over at least two weeks.

Nocturnal erections (on waking with full bladder) more uncomfortable and prolonged since prescribed Doxazosin. Any risk of priapism here?

Answered by:

small risk


Alpha blockers such as doxazosin have improved erections in some men. The risk of priapism is very small with such treatment.

If you take Viagra prior to sleep would nocturnal erections induce priapism?

Possibly


Viagra and any agent used treat erectile dysfunction can induce priapism. If Viagra is taken at night, then it is possible that a normal erection could last longer and cause priapism. Who actually develops priapism depends on their risk factors such as age, comorbidities including diabetes and hypertension, and use of other medications. The more comorbidities a man has, the less likely.

Recently had problems getting erection. Dr gave me a few Viagra. Afraid to take because of risk of priapism. Thoughts?

PRIAPISM


IT IS A POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECT BUT I HAVE ONLY SEEN IT WITH PATIENTS WITH POOLY CONTROLLED SICKLE CELL ANEMIA OR ELICIT DRUG USE. IT IS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE. IF THIS IS NOT REASSURING ENOUGH USE A SMALL DOSE FIRST(25 MG) AS A TRIAL. THE TRIALS BEFORE IT WAS FDA APPROVED USED SEVERAL TIMES THE EVENTUAL RECOMENDED DOSE TO DETERMINE SAFETY.
