Can Olmetec or Vytorin cause erectile dysfunction?

I have been taking OLMETEC 40 mg and Vytorin (both one time a day) since about 6 months ago and have been experiencing erectile dysfunction since about 3 months. Could one of these medicines or maybe both be the cause for my dificulty in having erections?

Hello, and thanks for your question.

Erectile dysfunction is best treated with the medication Viagra (sildenafil). This is very likely to improve your erection quality and duration. I would talk with a local doctor about prescribing this to you.

My husband takes Vytorin and has for years. Now his total cholesterol is 106 and is bad is 35. His Dr. says don t stop taking the medicine. I have researched and I think Vytorin is dangerous medicine especially when it s not needed anymore. I understand that stopping abruptly isn t a good idea but should I be worried if he does it slowly? Like one ever other day for a couple weeks and then may every 3 days an so on.

Hi Dr Oana, I have had a stale blood (reddish brown) discharge for over ten years - both breasts. I am 47 years old, had cervical cancer at 31; current health issues: angina, coronary artery disease, fibromyalgia, high cholesterol not sufficiently controlled with medication (Lipitor for many years and now on Vytorin). I have just noticed the discharge (left breast) has changed to black from one duct, dark green from 3 others. The R breast is still a normal milky discharge. I have saw a specialist 1 year ago who did no tests but said to come back in 2 years. I have never had a biopsy or sample of the discharge examined - should I request my GP organise a needle biopsy (was sent to have one via ultrasound but they decided at the appointment not to do it for some reason. Kind regards, and thank your for assisting, Caroline Todd
