Medications that cause poor erections
Dec 23, 2011
Nelson, are there any medications that can cause erectile problems even if a man has normal testosterone?
Response from Mr. Vergel
A number of medications have been reported in the medical literature to cause erectile dysfunction due to decreases in testosterone, increases in estradiol, or both. These include:
Antiandrogens. These include cyproterone, flutamide, and finasteride. Used to treat prostate cancer and some other conditions. Anti-anxiety medications such as diazepam (Valium). Tricyclic antidepressants. These include amitriptyline. Glucocorticoid steroids. Antibiotics. Ulcer medications such as cimetidine (Tagamet). Cancer treatment (chemotherapy). Heart medications such as digitalis and calcium channel blockers. Anabolic steroids when not used with testosterone . Blood pressure medications and others
