Image: Can you suggest any medicine to get proper erection?

Hi doctor,

I am a married guy of 32 years old. For the past two to three years, I am facing problem to get proper erection. I have already consulted a doctor and he asked me to get some tests done such as cholesterol, sugar and BP. We found that the triglyceride value is more than 350 mg/dL. He advised me to take tablet Lipicard 160 and Nano-Leo total sachet twice a day in milk for a week. He also advised me to do regular exercise and decrease the fatty or oily food. After a week, I found some difference in erection. It was better than before, but still I am not getting a triggering effect like I was having in my younger age. I had Sildenafil citrate in the past. Currently, I am taking Duralast 30 mg. In my teenage, erection used to happen even by thought. But, now I am getting it after struggling on bed. With my partner too the duration is very short. Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You are facing both premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. Duralast (Dapoxetine) helps with premature ejaculation, but could worsen the problem of erectile dysfunction.
  • For this, you need to take tablet Forzest (Tadalafil) 20 mg along with Duralast one hour before sexual activity. As the effect of Tadalafil lasts for 48 hours, you need to take it on alternate days only and not daily.
  • Continue taking Lipicard (Fenofibrate) and Nano-Leo (Ginkgo biloba, L-arginine, Yohimbe bark extract and Zinc sulfate) along with Forzest as advised by your physician.
  • Even if Sildenafil did not help you previously, Tadalafil taken along with your other medicines, dietary changes and exercise is likely to be effective.
  • I will also advice you to take D-rise 60k (vitamin D) once a week for four weeks. It helps in testosterone synthesis.

The Probable causes:

1. Hyperlipidemia.
2. Dapoxetine.

Probable diagnosis:

Erectile dysfunction.

Preventive measures:

Exercise and dietary changes.

Hi doctor,

I have already tried Megalis 20 - Tadalafil. But, Tadalafil causes headache and body ache. What to do?

Welcome back to icliniq.com. In that case, you have two options, which are as follows.

  • Your premature ejaculation - PE problem might be secondary to your erectile dysfunction (ED). People with erectile dysfunction rush through sexual activity because they fear that the erection might not last leading to premature ejaculation.
  • In such a case, treatment of premature ejaculation is not needed. So, you can stop taking Duralast for 15 days and observe whether there is any help in erection.
  • If erection improves, then you should stop Duralast and instead apply a layer of local anesthetic like Lignox 2 percent jelly (Lignocaine) over the glans penis 15 minutes before sexual activity. It is effective in PME and does not worsen ED.
  • Secondly, for headache and body ache take Paracetamol 600 mg along with Tadalafil. It will prevent the aches. You can take another tablet next morning also, if needed.
  • Also, try taking 10 mg Megalis instead of 20 mg and see if the headache and body ache is less and bearable.
  • Take tablet Tetrafol plus (Levomefolate calcium, Pyridoxal 5-phosphate and Mecobalamin) one tablet daily at night for a month along with your current medicines. It will help in erection by gradually increasing the blood flow to the penis.
