Cutting Down on Medications May Be Key to Fighting ED

If you are reading these pages for the first time, Boston Medical Group obviously doesn't know very much about your medical condition. So we are not aware as to what kind of medication you may be taking these days, or for that matter, how much of it you are taking.

What we can relate to you, however, is that if you are taking a lot of medication, it might be something that contributes to erectile dysfunction, and if you cut some of it out, you stand less of a chance of getting ED.

That, at least, is what the findings of a recent study published in the British Journal of Urology International would seem to indicate.

It may not be the most conclusive study anyone has ever conducted, but it did find, in a survey involving over 37,000 men, that the more medications they took, the more likely they were to experience symptoms of erectile dysfunction, to some degree.

Some suggestions that have been made in relation to these findings, and if you are someone who ingests multiple medications, are to perhaps consider those that might be superfluous, such as certain over-the-counter medications. That may be s step toward dealing with those ED symptoms,

Of course, you would hesitate to do anything without consultation with a physician. And when it concerns ED, there is no one better than one of the network of independent physicians working with Boston Medical Group. To get your questions answered, or to set up an appointment, just call 1-888-740-5170.
