sexual impotence help
May 10, 2003

dear doctor, I have impotence sex disfuction. viagra does not work, only side effects. I'm on HAART. is there other treatment? my cd4 are 250, cbc normal. what you recomend? thanks.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Impotence can be caused by a wide variety of potential conditions. There are physiological and psychological causes. Viagra is a treatment for erectile dysfunction. This may not be your problem. Perhaps you have low testosterone levels or a psychological problem. Ask your HIV specialist for a referral to a urologist (physician who specializes in this area). That should be your next step. Yes, there are a variety of treatments available for impotence, but in order to know which treatment to prescribe, you first must diagnose the cause of the problem.

Hope that helps.
