Avatar f tn It is probable not a bad thing for you to be a little scared, loss of erection should be the least of your concerns because if you continue using heroine and methadone, your sexual drive will eventually diminish and you will stop warring about it. I hope you will find some better purpose in life and some better meaning. Life is precious and given to you make a difference in the world, to do good for the people around you, to leave a lasting, positive and permanent impression.

Avatar m tn Constipation Drowsiness Skin Rash Sweating Water retention Flushing Changes in sex drive or erectile dysfunction Dizziness (especially in the beginning of treatment and especially as a person in methadone maintenance treatment rises from a lying position) Dry mouth I've seen so many friends on methadone that are drowsy all the time, maybe it's the dosage, but the fact is there is a chance of these side effects.
Avatar f tn I wasnt a codeine user, but the past 12 years have been prescription methadone and suboxone. My sex drive is WAY low, and I like you narla only did it cause I felt that it was my role. Im 35 days off the sub, and my desire is still in the pits. How long after opiate discontinuation does that desire return? Fortunatelly my guy understands, but its causing tension I can tell. Being only 28, this is a huge concern of mine.
Avatar f tn The underlying cause of your erectile dysfunction has to be ascertained.Reversing the condition means treating the underlying cause directly. Here are some underlying causes of erectile dysfunction: Source:

Avatar f tn In such cases, prescribing FDA-approved erectile dysfunction medications could be appropriate There has been far less research regarding opiate-induced endocrine deficiencies in women than in men. Hypothetically, androgen treatment would relieve clinical symptoms and reduce risks of osteoporosis in affected women. In younger women, oral contraceptive pills (OCPs) might have benefit; particularly an OCP with a relatively androgenic progestin component.

Avatar n tn Various articles have described erectile dysfunction and low libido as a result of HCV, interferon tx, and/or liver damage. The biggest factor seems to be the HCV itself, and several controlled studies have been done looking at variables like liver damage, viral load, interferon history, etc. It seems that about 35% to 40% of men with HCV have regular erectile issues, regardless of the other factors. Duration of infection may also be a factor, and has only been studied in small groups.

Avatar n tn My medical history is that up until 2 years ago I was a drug user and for the past 5 years I've been prescribed methadone which I've come off in the past few weeks. I was also told by my Doctor that I could have an irritated bowel which the methadone can cause. I've been to the Doctor numerous times and have been prescribed anti-biotics, amitriptyiline, ibuprofen and have been tested for STI's as well as Cystitis.
Avatar f tn As far as side effects, sweating, vomiting, clamor, and erectile dysfunction are pretty prevalent. Don't need to be with a guy with a drug habit yet alone a limp ****!
Avatar n tn Inguinal Hernia could lead to varicocele formation which can then lead to testicular dysfunction/failture and hormonal abnormalities also. This is something that should be looked into and fixed. An ultrasound can evaluate this and a simple out-patient procedure can be done to repair this. Testicular veins have no 'connections' with the penis so fixing this will only further improve testicular function. Increased testicular size should be investigated.
Avatar n tn I have discussed this with my doctor and he maintains that my number (257) is normal and that no hrt is necessary. I was hoping to find a study or a medical reference or a medical chart that listed normal testosterone levels by age so that I could go back to him with that and convince him to treat me. Any suggestions?
