Taking some medicines can affect your blood flow, which can lead to ED. However, the patient should never stop taking the medicine without the permission of his doctor, even though they are known to cause impotence.
Examples of drugs that can cause impotence:
Alpha-adrenergic blockers, including tamsulosin (Flomax)
Beta-blockers such as carvedilol (Corega) and metoprolol (Lopressor)
Cancer chemotherapy – medicines such as cimetidine (Tagamet)
Central nervous system depressants such as alprazolam (Xanax), diazepam (Valium) and codeine (found in various branded medicines)
Stimulating central nervous system, such as cocaine or amphetamines
Diuretics such as furosemide (lasix) and spironolactone (Aldactone)
Synthetic hormones such as leuprolide (ELIGARD)
Conditions that affect the heart and its ability to properly pump blood can cause impotence. Without sufficient blood flow to the penis, one can not achieve an erection.
Atherosclerosis, a condition that causes the blood vessels to remain clogged, can be a major, lasting way to ensure impotence. High cholesterol and high blood pressure (hypertension) are also associated with an increased risk of impotence.
So when you use the drugs mentioned above, you should have the main effects of these drugs. And under the doctor’s advice, use some anti impotence drugs, such as kamagra oral jelly or viagra.
