The use of multiple medications is associated with increased severity of erectile dysfunction, according to a Kaiser Permanente study published online in the British Journal of Urology International. This study surveyed 37, 712 ethnically diverse men from Southern California and found that men taking various medications are likely to have more severe ED. This was part of the California Men's Health Study, a multiethnic cohort of men ages 46 to 69 who are members of Kaiser Permanente in California. Information about medication use between 2002 and 2003 was obtained from pharmacy records. This study looked at men who were taking more than three medications. Survey responses about ED were used to quantify its presence and severity. Of the men included in this study, 29 percent reported moderate or severe ED.
The more medications a man is on, the higher is his risk of developing erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, researchers from Kaiser Permanente reported in the British Journal of Urology International. Not only is the risk of ED (erectile dysfunction) greater, but also the condition's severity. Lead author, Diana C. LondoĆ o, MD., said that she and her team found that ED severity was more likely to be higher among the study participants on the most drugs. Their survey, part of the California Men's Health Study, included 37, 712 adult males aged from 46 to 69. They were from a wide range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds. LondoĆ o and team gathered data on medication usage from pharmacy records between 2002 and 2003. They concentrated on adult male patients who were on over three medications.

A study published on bmj.com shows that male bowel cancer patients have a high probability of suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) after their treatment yet in spite of this, the majority of patients does not receive sufficient information about the condition. Approximately 38, 000 people in the UK are diagnosed with bowel cancer each year, with half of these patients surviving longer than five years after treatment. According to the study these numbers are set to increase. Lead author, professor Sue Wilson at the University of Birmingham and her team commented that men are more likely to develop bowel cancer and that many will experience ED following treatment. Researchers conducted a series of in-depth interviews with 28 patients who had been treated for bowel cancer in the West Midlands.
Tadalafil ( Cialis ) has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for the treatment of BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) signs and symptoms - a condition in which the prostate gland enlarges. It has also been approved for the treatment of simultaneous BPH and ED ( erectile dysfunction ). Since 2003, the medication has been on the market legally in the USA for ED treatment. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also called benign prostatic hypertrophy (really a misnomer), benign enlargement of the prostate (BEP), or adenofibromyomatous hyperplasia, are all terms which refer to an increase in the size of the prostate gland. Signs and symptoms can include difficulty in starting urination, a weakened urine flow which causes stopping and starting, strain when passing urine, urinating too frequently, waking up in the night often to urinate (Nocturia), sudden urges to urinate which can result in incontinence if a toilet is not found immediately, inability to fully empty the bladder during urination, and sometimes blood in urine.
