Hi - I am confused about my medication. I have Diltiazem, Cardizem and Amlodipine in my cupboard but am I taking too much medication? I can t remember if my doctor told me to replace the latest one I have been given (Amlodipine). I think Darizem and Diltiazem might be the same thing but with different names?? Are you able to help me please. Trish

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?

My boyfriend has problems gaining and keeping an erection during sex, this is

because of a huge amount of stress, and i believe drug taking. He's too

embarressed to go to the doctors and talk to them about it and see if he could

get viagra or something along those lines.. and i was just wondering if i could

go to my doctors and if they could prescribe it to me for him to use? obviously

his problem effects me a lot aswell.
