Brief Answer:
Discontinue Ava dart, switch from Flomax to Cialis

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for trusting HCM

The erectile dysfunction is due to the medications you are on for prostate enlargement. Both Ava dart and Flomax cause erectile dysfunction.
Please follow up with your treating physician to discontinue Ava dart. It blocks the conversion of testosterone into its active form, contributing to erectile dysfunction.

Flomax also causes erectile dysfunction. You can try switching to Cialis, which is approved by FDA for treatment of erectile dysfunction and prostate enlargement. Cialis helps urne flow by elaxing prostate and bladder sphincter muscles. It also enhances blood flow to penis, thereby treating erectile dysfunction.

Hope this answers your questions
Please let me know if you need further clarification
