ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION

Erectile Dysfunction (ED), is characterized by the regular or repeated inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual activity. A penile erection is the hydraulic effect of blood entering and being retained within the penis. ED can have severe psychological consequences as it can be tied to masculine self-image and can cause relationship difficulties.

​All medications prescribed for the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction or BPH may lower your blood pressure. Do not take any of these medications if you are also using a nitrate drug for chest pain or heart problems. Taking a nitrate in combination with an erectile dysfunction medication can cause a severe and unsafe drop in blood pressure. Contact your doctor or seek emergency medical attention if your erection is painful or ​lasts longer than 4 hours (priapism). Contact your doctor or seek emergency medical attention if you have sudden vision loss.
