What Medications Enterfear With Getting And Erection
What are good medicines to manage my impotence while being on Viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride). My problem is not with anorgasm but having and maintaining an erection.
Would switch med. : I really don't like medicating the side effect of another medication. My first thought would be to see if that issue goes away with a different med, other than Viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride). If it doesn't, of if you just really think Viibryd (vilazodone hydrochloride) works well for you, you'd have to take the Viagra-type meds to help with your erection. ...Read more

I'm currently taking Buspar (buspirone) and Vistaril for GAD, neither of which are working very well. What other medications can I ask my doctor to try?
Anxiety: Generalized Anxiety Disorder is a condition which is responsive to a combination of medication and psychotherapy techniques.

Medications are useful, like propranolol, mood stabilizers, benzodiazepines. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Are the side effects of viagra (sildenafil) worth the pain and suffering just to keep an erection? I don't know what else to do other than take erection pills.
Look for cause first: To assess if one's erections have weakened, he should visit a primary doctor, who can check for possible causes: stress, depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, low testosterone, artery disease, high cholesterol, etc... Causes found can be treated to help make erections stronger, firmer, longer lasting. A urologist can be helpful.

What is the cause and treatment for erectile dysfunction? My husband taking too much time for erection and some times not achieving erection at all.
Take him to his doc: Since you are 21yo, i'm going to assume that he is about your age. In that case, it is less likely for erectile dysfunction to be due to medical condition such as diabetes, high cholesterol, etc. More common in this age group, stress eg work, relationship (how are you two getting along?), family, money, tobacco, excess alcohol are issues. If none of these, then go see family doc for evaluation. ...Read more

No supplements: There isn't a lot of evidence for agents other than prescription medicine. We used to recommend coenzyme q10, but more evidence has not shown benefit. Exercise is definitely beneficial, particularly vigorous exercise, so she should do that, but ultimately nothing works as well as the parkinson medications. ...Read more

What is the safest anti anxiety medication with the least amount of side effects? (I have tried exercise, cbt, counselling etc so do not suggest these
Need both approaches: SSRi's with the fewest drug interactions, which would be probably Zoloft (sertraline) and Celexa; not addictive and few side effects too. Everyone responds differently, an individual approach is needed. Non-drug treatments for anxiety are important to continue also, as medication do not cure anxiety and are less effective if not getting good sleep, proper nutrition, insight into your anxiety and exercise. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I would like to get off my ADD medication, what are some other options besides medication to help with lack of focus and motivation?
Environmental mods &: self rewards. Focus is better for everyone if distractions in the enviroment can be removed, so location, background noise, etc. all have a big impact on focus. Break down tasks into small goals, set time limits, and then reward self when goal is met, i.e., make 5 calls in 20 minutes and take 5 for a quick break. Make lists and check off when complete.

Can horny goat weed and HGH or any treatment for low testosterone maybe help me with my erection problems?
I wouldn't try it: Herbs and various suppliments unfortunately have not been tested. That means, the fda has not certified these substances to be safe and effective. Some believe that if something is natural, it has to be safe. This is erronious as many plants in nature are harmful. I would try and see a doctor called an endocrinologist for the testosterone or a urologist for ed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
