I'm assuming by "medications" you mean prescriptions meds like Viagra, Cialis, etc. If that's true, then you would have gone to a doctor for it. So I would suggest going back to that same doctor and telling them the meds didn't work. There are SO many things that can cause ED, and some of them can be serious health problems: hardening of the arteries, diabetes, high blood pressure, other medications, the list goes on.
So if the meds and such aren't working, it's time to investigate the root cause. I'd make an appointment with the doctor you saw before (or with your primary care doc if you haven't been to a doctor about this yet) and discuss other options, tests that could be run, etc. From there, your primary care doc may very well refer you to a urologist.
I was just going to say this!
If ED medications, real medications like Cialis, Viagra etc don't help, he needs
to see a doctor. He could be suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, peripheral neuropathy or a host of other health problems.
ED is a sign that a LOT is going on in his body and it needs to be checked out. If he has tried real ED meds under a doctor's care (NOT gotten them from websites, many of them are nothing more than reformed aspirin, he needs to see a doctor and get them from a real pharmacy) and he's still having problems, he NEEDS to see a urologist that specializes in Erectile Dysfunction, as well as have a complete physical.
I hope he's OK. Let us know.
