Sexual side effects from taking Neurtion
Mar 14, 2007

What are alternative meds my boyfriend can take for neuropathy in his feet? He has HIV. He can not get hard to have sex.

Response from Dr. Henry

An evaluation of potential contributing factors for impotence should be done by his HIV specialist. Diabetes, neuropathy, low testosterone levels, performance or transmission anxiety, and drug side effects and many other factors can contribute to impotence. Treatment depends on what factors are present and which HIV drugs he is taking. Sometimes hormone replacement or use of Viagra like drugs is used for impotence under supervision by the HIV specialist and/or a urologist/sexual therapist. KH
