The erections are not painful. I take Flowmax for the BHP. I also take Wellbutrin, Pristique, Plavix, Lipitor, Once a month 1 ML of testosterone. I also use a drug that causes erection similar to Caverject or whatever by injection in the penis. I use that 4 to 6 times a month. I have not had an injection in 2 days.

I was wondering about any effects these drugs may have. The erections are not painful.
