a firmer erection. I am 69 years old and have trouble with ED. I discovered this happening by accident, so I have tried it again and it helped. Is there any reason that ibuprofen can help me have a firmer erection? Will it have any side effects if I take 2 tablets everyday? Thank you
NSAIDS like ibuprofen are known to "thin" the blood (they have an anticoagulent effect) so it is possible this is what is occurring when you take ibuprofen. ED drugs like Viagra work to relax muscles to allow more blood to flow into the penis. It probably wont hurt you to take a total of 400mg ibuprofen a day if your liver and kidneys are healthy, but you should ask your Dr about doing it long term.
