How to treat erectile disorders with medication
Posted November 14, 2018 08:16:06 Anesthetists are using pills to treat the symptoms of erectile problems, but some patients are not comfortable taking them.
In an article published in the Journal of Urology, anesthesiologist Dr. Shubhade Mehta and urologist Dr. Sanjay Natarajan describe how they have found that some patients have difficulty taking medication.
The article has been translated into English by the American Association of Anesthesiologists.
(English version: “Anesthesia is one of the first treatments that we can prescribe for patients with erectile and/or erectile disorder.”)
The authors say that they have used pills like Viagra and Alprazolam for some patients, and that other drugs have helped patients.
“The medications do work, but we must keep in mind that some people do not respond well to these medications,” said Mehtas team leader Dr. Nataraja.
They write that it is important to find out what works best for your patient, and to also be aware of potential side effects.
