Question: Help!!!

I am a 40 year old male with hypertension and diabetes. recently I have been having problems keeping an erection and maintaining an hard erection. This has never happened before, It just started when I turned 40. Is there anything I can take that will not interfere with my meds to correct this problem? Also, is there any kind of herbs or over the counter pills I can take to help me lose weight without interfering with my meds? Thanks!!

Have you voiced your concerns with your doctor? Your doctor should know best how your body might react to any medication.

User avatar Hi!

Before trying out new modes of treatment, we need to know if cessation of any your current medicines can bring about any remedy to your problem. Sometimes, other pathologies from your existing diseases can bring about erectile dysfunction. If that is the case, an examination and workup by your doctor would need to be done before resorting to other therapies.

Hope this helps.
