Hello and thank you so much for this query. I am Dr. Ditah and feel honored to address your health worries today. I am so sorry to hear about your weight concerns and the recent loss of erections.

If the only thing that has changed in your recent habits is this drug, then I will suggest that you stop and observe a little. If it gets resolved, then it is probably an undesirable effect from this drug but if it should persist, then we may need to look for some other possible causes.

Inability to get erections caused by a disease is often progressive. It is rarely an abrupt cessation like you just reported. The only exception to this is a spinal injury that instantly destroys the nerves that supply the penis. In this case, there should be other signs and symptoms related to defecation and urination that you have not reported.

The most common cause of abrupt inability to get an erection is psychological. I will like you to review this aspect of your life. Look for stressors, difficulties in your relationship or any other recent experiences that might have make you to have a negative view towards sex. If there are any, this could be the most likely complication. Please, try to address them.

I will like to say a few words about you interest in loosing weight. I generally discourage drugs as a means to loose weight. We don't take drugs to put on weight. We gain weight by eating more than we actually need. To loose weight, we need to also take in less than we spend. When you resort to taking pills to address your weight problems, it offers a temporary solution and never a long lasting one unless you plan to stay on drugs for the rest of your life. I will rather suggest that you look into your lifestyle and take control of those factors that make you to take in more than you need or prevent you from using as much as possible. This is the best way to ensure long term victory. Meeting and discussing with a dietitian may be very helpful in this.

I hope this provides useful information and helps you in making well informed choices. If you have more question related to the above query, I am more than happy to address them. Once more, thank you so much for using our services.
I wish you a rapid recovery from this loss of erections.

Thank you so much for this follow up questions and more precision.

Please, unless there are really pressing needs to cut down on your weight, I will not advice you to continue this medication for a 6-7kg excess weight. Please stop and use other measures like diet control, increased physical exercise, and reduced alcohol intake if you do drink.

If you should choose not to stop, then you may want to observe over a few days and see what the state of these erections is. If they are getting worse, then stopping is the best way forward. If they get better, then you may want to continue.

Having an early morning erection means there is actually no organic cause and it is more of a psychological problem. The same fear of loosing erections will make it even more difficult to voluntarily initiate any. Please, reassure yourself and regain your confidence to get this right again.

I hope this helps you. It is a transient problem from all I have gotten from you. It will resolve sooner than you may imagine. i really wish you could stop the drugs and continue the weight loss battle with the above measures i have suggested. if you should have any further worries, please feel free let me address them.
wish you good health.
