User :   Hi,

I am 51. Have diminished the desire to have sex with my wife, though she want's. I love my wife.This has happened over last 4-5 years. Feel lethargic when I go to bed. Presently I stay in Mumbai and go home once in 15 days. I do masturbate 2-3 times a week and get an erection while masturbation, while having sex with my wife I failed to have a complete erection last time aroung 3/4 months back. Please suggest some medicine for improving my sex life. I have slightly high BP and take Seloken XL 25 regularly. Also is it safe to take Revital with such BP.

Doctor :  
SInce you have good erection during masturbation it might not be an organic reason for lack of proper erection
Doctor :  
Lack of regular sex and not in company with your wife are the two probable reason I could think of
Doctor :  
Also SELOKEN can cause Erectile problems
User :   I am in Mumbai for past one year only before that I was with my family and same situation existed.
Doctor :  
as the Beta Blockers ( anti hypertensition ) medcines can cause such side effects
Doctor :  
So these are the three important reason I could see for lack of proper erection in your case
Doctor :  
Do you get proper orgasm during sex?
User :   I used to get it earlier. Not had much sex during last 4/5 years except masturbation. When I have orgasm.
Doctor :   At this age past 50 yrs, one needs constant stimulation from the partner to engage in proper and completed sexual activity
Doctor :  
Since you are staying away from your partner that stimulation is not in your case
Doctor :  
Being close to your wife is one solution]
Doctor :   Do you smoke / take alcohol?
User :   Are there any safe medicines to improve this.
User :   No I am a teetotaller
Doctor :  
If it is an organic cause, definitely shall improve
Doctor :  
since there is psychological reason
Doctor :  
only counselling and couple therapy helps
User :   WE both want to have sex. But when ever I go to bed I feel lethargic and want to avoid sex.
Doctor :  
You both of you can meet a sexologist and avail a couple therapy\
User :   Can Revital be take. It gives me extra enery when taken

Doctor :  
You should not take any medicines or gels since you are hypertensives

Some medicines are unsafe to be taken without Doctor's prescription and physical examination
