Thanks for the quer.

You seem to be a diabetic with a mildly enlarged prostate for which you were given Tamlocept which led to rashes, heaviness chest, erectile problem and no discharge.

Yes, all these can be caused by Tamlocept. Now as you have stopped taking the medicine, it should all come back to normal.

However as you are a diabetic and 66 years old, both of which can also cause similar symptoms, I would suggest you wait for a fortnight and if the problem is unresolved, consult your doctor for a detailed examination and evaluation.

Hope this answers your query. Should you have any additional concerns, I am available to help you further. Please accept this answer if you do not have any further queries.
