Medicines that can cause erectile dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction and Your Medications

Sexual dysfunction, which includes problems getting and maintaining an erection, decreased libido, delayed ejaculation, and lack of orgasm, is a common side effect of many prescription and over-the-counter medications. Certain medications can increase your risk of erectile dysfunction by interfering with your nerve impulses or the flow of blood to your penis.

Erectile dysfunction is one of the main reasons why men being treated for conditions such as high blood pressure and depression stop taking their medications.

A Dr. Mike Quick Fact: Between 10% and 25% percent of erectile dysfunction in the U.S. is caused by medications.

Is Your Erectile Dysfunction Caused by Medication?

  • Hormonal medications used to treat prostate cancer, such as Eulexin (flutamide) and Lupron (leuprolide)
  • Propecia (finasteride) used to treat an enlarged prostate (BPH) and certain types of male hair loss

"Most men will seek treatment for an erection that won't go away before it goes on for too long, usually within four to six hours.

In most cases, treatment involves draining the penis with a needle placed in the side of the penis. Medications that act on the blood vessels can also be injected to help shrink blood vessels and, thus, decrease blood flow into the penis. Sickle-cell anemia patients with priapism are usually treated by blood transfusion
