Hello psharris,

I checked the list of possible side effects and ED is not listed, and it has not been reported as a possible side effect.

Not the med, but diabetes can cause it.

No, however, doctors often prescribe blood pressure and cholestorol med to go with metformin to help assist other organs that are stressed from the pancreas issues... these meds like synvostatin and lisinopril can both cause ed symptoms.
