Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
Erectile function depends on a combination of psychological, vascular, neurological and hormonal
factors.Any abnormality in any of these areas whether from medication or from disease can result in problems.
Normally if the problem was purely psychological, there would still be morning erections.
ED (erectile dysfunction
) can be associated with anything that affects the (1)blood vessels in the penis such a diabetes
, high cholesterol
, smoking,high blood pressure
(2) nerve supply to the penis
(3) hormonal factors such as abnormal thyroid
levels, low testosterone
(5) medications- some blood pressure medication
, medications for stomach ulcers/gerd, medications for prostatic enlargement
Blood investigations can be done, if thought to be necessary by a doctor, to determine the exact cause. Some of the tests may be for thyroid hormone levelsv(if thought abnormal based on your medical history), other hormones such as testosterone.Checking for diabetes, high cholesterol and analysis of the urine should also be done.
In general the main medications that are used are viagra or cialis or levitra.They are all in the same family.
They cannot be used if you are on any medications in the nitrate family.
Generally persons would start on the lower dose and increase only if there is not a good response.
These medications vary according to when they should be taken and how long they last.
You may want to speak to your doctor for an assessment and to obtain a prescription.
Hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
