Response from Dr. Henry

Suggest seeing a urologist for consultation. Other drugs can contribute (ie some antidepressants) so complete review of all meds and health problems recommended). Other Viagra like drugs (like Cialis) can sometimes help when Viagra doesn't. Vacuum or implantable pumps can also help some patients. Often stress can contribute so psychological assessment sometimes beneficial as well. KH
