How to avoid cocaine and erectile problems
If you’re a cocaine addict, it may help to know how to stop it.
A study published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence showed that men who abstained from cocaine for a year reported lower levels of erectile function than those who were abstinent for the full 12 months.
Researchers also found that abstinent men were more likely to experience erectile symptoms than those abstaining for the entire 12 months, including erectile difficulties and difficulty getting an erection.
“It’s important to note that cocaine addiction is not caused by drug use,” said Dr. Jennifer A. Roper, a physician at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine who led the study.
“People who have substance use problems, particularly with opioids, have been using cocaine and alcohol for a long time.
So it is important to be aware of these underlying factors that contribute to this.”
Researchers also found a link between cocaine use and erections, which are less likely to occur when the drug is present.
They also found evidence that cocaine use can have other adverse effects on sexual functioning, such as increased blood pressure, heart rate and body temperature.
While the study’s findings may not be surprising, they do raise some questions about the long-term effects of cocaine use.
For instance, what happens if cocaine use stops and a man has a stroke?
Does he lose the ability to have sex, or do he regain it?
“This is a really interesting study and it is one of the first to show that cocaine is a problem that can persist for a very long time,” Dr. Ropers said.
“This study is important because it highlights the link between drug use and other disorders and we have some idea that cocaine can have an impact on other disorders that we don’t know about yet.”
If you’re interested in getting help, you should look at these studies to see if they’re true and to see whether you’re using drugs.
“A full-time physician at Johns Hopkins who is also a sexual medicine specialist, Dr. A.J. Avila is the director of the Sexual Health Institute at the university.
Dr. Vincenzo Ricci, a medical student at Johns, was also a co-author of the study, which was published in JAMA Psychiatry.”
These results indicate that cocaine-induced erectile failure can occur for a longer period of time than previously thought,” Dr Ricci said in a statement.”
Given that it was a year-long study, it is difficult to assess the long term consequences of cocaine abstinence.
“The findings may also have implications for men who have erectile disorders or other health conditions, such a diabetes or kidney disease.
They may also offer some insights into why cocaine is such a problem for men, such that they might have problems with their erections and sexual function.”
I think that cocaine addicts, whether it is for recreational or medicinal purposes, are at risk of developing erectile disorder or erectile dysfunctions,” Dr Roper said.
