If I have Erectile Dysfunction (ED), I’ll be on pills forever.

Myth

As we have pointed out, Erectile Dysfunction (ED) can have an abundance of possible causes. Even if a man starts on medication to provide quick relief from the issue, it does not mean he will need them the rest of his life. Weight loss, smoking cessation, exercise, control of diabetes or hypertension, reduction of cholesterol, and even the cessation of alcohol consumption can have a significant effect.

With the advent of Viagra and other safe, effective treatments patients could be given a treatment that relieved them of a burden that seemed impossible to lift before. However, the medications should never be an alternative to taking care of the underlying cause of Erectile Dysfunction (ED).

The two best days for many patients with Erectile Dysfunction (ED) are the day they are given the treatment they need, and the day they no longer need it.
