I have ED and my doctor thinks it’s because of my meds. I also smoke. Has anyone battled and overcome ED? I’ve tried Levitra and Viagra to no avail. Next to try is cialis. After that maybe the penis injections. Then implant surgery.

Penis injections? My genitalia just tried to crawl back into my body reading those two words. I haven't had such problems, yet. I've heard that pelvic floor exercises can help though. Kegels. You might have already tried those. I'm hopefully not sounding immature, must be a crappy thing to experience and I hope that you get a good erection sometime soon. Which sounds like a fucking weird thing to say.

If the Cialis doesn't help, you could ask your doc about maybe adding some Wellbutrin?.....Wellbutrin (bupropion) is sometimes prescribed by pdocs for people who are having sexual problems due to other meds......SSRIs like Prozac can cause sexual issues in some people.

Don't panic. Injectable treatments for ED are not nearly as horrid as one would imagine. For reasons I will not attempt to relate, I experienced the application of one of these, something simple enough to do oneself. A quite thin needle is inserted practically painlessly into the corpus cavernosum (refer to google or a copy of Gray's Anatomy if you should happen to have one upon your person) and a small amount of the substance, usually alprostadil (Caverject) or a combination therapy referred to as Trimix is injected, again, painlessly. In approximately 5-15 minutes, the medication begins to take effect pretty much whether you're aroused or not, unlike Viagra, which only assists you when you're feelin' frisky.

I do hope you can avoid implants - I've met a couple of men who have had to have them, and they do not recommend it.

Isn't there an ED suppository that is inserted in the urethra and delivers a medication(s) ? Not sure which one(s).

Yes, it's called alprostadil (brand name Muse), and is available as a urethral suppository...

However, it is fairly expensive, at least here in the U.S........I checked around, and it is available in Australia.

that also sounds like it could be highly unpleasant... not sure it actually is... but it sounds uncomfortable

How long has it been ongoing, and have you recently changed meds? 

 

I had this for maybe 6 months when I started risperdal. Which ultimately didn't matter with my single status. 

 

It actually led me via google to crazymeds. Although I didn't follow the advice. 

 

It resolved itself with a sudden, unexpected, unexplained random public boner. Which is always awkward. Then progressed through occasionally taking interest in bewbies etc, and eventually back to my normal low grade libido. Which would probably disappoint most people. But is just how I roll.

Full disclosure, I am not male, but I've known someone who tried to get implants and they did not heal well.  I would seriously avoid this if there is literally any other option.  He was left with some serious scars and erections for him are now painful and there is no sign of that being treatable for him.

My husband had problems with ED on Pristiq but he was given a small dose of Wellbutrin on top of it and it seriously helped him.
