Brief Answer:
NO.....not recommended

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

From the list of medications you have given, its clear that you were having cardiovascular problem.
I strictly say "NO" to use Sildenafil with those medications. As it may cause vasodilatation and hypotension along with above mentioned medications which may precipitate chest pain that may lead to serious consequences.

So I wont recommend it to any one of the patient who comes to my clinic with the same scenario.

Hello,
Welcome back,

There are various newer modalities available for treating ED apart from Sildenafil, I am giving a brief out lines. But the exact therapy should be decided by a urologist.

1. intra urethral therapy by drug in the form of suppository or pellets
2.Vaccum constricting devices
3. Direct inj. of drugs into penis.
