Americans are drowning in prescription drugs. Between the ages of 50
and 64, the average American takes 19 prescription drugs, according to
industry data.  Even the young, in the peak physical condition of their
lives, are taking medications: between the ages of 19 and 25, the
average American takes 5.2 medications per year. Over age 65? That
number jumps to 27.3 medications per year on average. For men with
erectile dysfunction, this avalanche of drugs brings with it a vexing
problem --- some of these prescription drugs actually make erectile
dysfunction worse.  Which prescription medications cause erectile
dysfunction? Are there natural remedies that may cause fewer side
effects on your erections?

Allergy Medications Can Cause Erectile Dysfunction

These allergy medications can cause erectile dysfunction or make
erectile dysfunction worse:

  • Cimetidine (brand names include Tagamet, Cemetin and others)

  • Dimenhydrinate (Dramamine)

  • Diphenhydramine (Benadryl)

  • Hydroxyzine (Vistaril)

  • Meclizine (Antivert)

  • Nizatidine (Axid)

  • Promethazine

  • Ranitidine (Zantac)  

These drugs are antihistamines. But did you know that certain foods
actually also lower histamine naturally?

Vitamin C can lower histamine levels in your blood by approximately
38%, according to a 1992 study from Arizona State University. If
you're waiting to see a commercial advertising Vitamin C's
antihistamine effects, don't hold your breath. There's far too much
money at stake in the pharmaceuticals now marketed to tackle seasonal
allergies. The first drug on the list, Tagamet, actually was the first drug
in the world to reach $1 billion in annual sales.

Blood Pressure Medications Worsen Erectile Dysfunction

Of the three main types of blood pressure medications ---thiazides,
beta blockers and alpha blockers ---thiazides are most often the cause
of erectile dysfunction. Beta Blockers have been known t cause erectile
dysfunction and alpha blockers are rarely the cause of erectile

Here is a list of thiazides, which are diuretics:

  • chlorothiazide

  • chlorthalidone (Hygroton)

  • indapamide (Lozol)

  • hydrochlorothiazide (Hydrodiuril)

  • methyclothiazide (Enduron)

  • metolazone

If you are on blood pressure medications, by all means stay on the
meds your doctor has prescribed. But, you may also want to start a
discussion with your doctor of certain natural approached to lowering
your blood pressure.

One of the most effective ways to lower blood pressure is to lower the
amount of salt in your diet while at the same time raising the amount of
potassium rich foods in your diet.  

White table salt is easy enough to spot. But hidden sources of salt in
your diet include so-called "healthy" foods such as lox, certain canned
vegetables, ketchup, potato chips and other snacks, all forms of
processed meats (cold cuts, sausages, cured meats, canned meats such
as Vienna sausages and canned tuna, hot dogs, and most forms of fast
food, including hamburgers, fried chicken, fish patties and chicken
patties), salted nuts, commercial breaded products and butter.

In general, try to prepare as many of your meals as possible in order to
know for certain how much salt is in them. Avoid take out orders
(pizza, Chinese take out, and so on) except as occasional treats.  

As for raising the amount of potassium rich foods, you should add in
servings of spinach, beans, lentils. Bananas lake a delicious after dinner
treat and they are rich in potassium.

Painkillers Can Cause Erectile Dysfunction

When you're in pain, you will take any medication prescribed to make it
go away. Unfortunately, the following pain killers also can introduce
erectile dysfunction to your life or make it worse if you already have ED.

Fentanyl (Innovar, Abstral, Durogesic, Fentora and other brand names)
Hydromorphone (Dilaudid)
Meperidine (Demerol)
Oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percodan and others)

Certain kinds of pain cannot be remedied by natural remedies. But
scientists have found that red peppers, rich in capsaicin, are natural
pain relievers.
