Symptom Checker

Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Treatment of Impotence

So far, you've indicated that you

  • do not have heart disease

  • do not take nitroglycerin or other nitrate medications

  • do not take any alpha blocker medications

  • do not have poorly controlled high blood pressure.

  • do not take three or more medications to control your high blood pressure.

Congratulations! You should be able to try a PDE5 drug such as Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis. These drugs are very popular because they are effective, easy to use, and cause few side effects.

Since all PDE5 drugs are by prescription only, you will need to contact a health care provider to try one of these drugs. Your health care provider will probably want to perform a medical evaluation before prescribing any treatment for impotence.
