Drugs play an vital role in modern day health.But as much as they have instant health effects they also tend to have a lot of side effects.
Particularly these side effects become very serious when they affect sex. Sex being the primary reason for last mental and physical well being, such drugs that affect sex life almost become slow poisons. Hence it is worthwhile to know about a few set of drugs to avoid in the interest of your lasting sexual and reproductive health.
In this video, Corrina discusses 5 groups of drugs that men should avoid to protect their sexual health. Her primary reference is an article from the National Institute of Health (nih.gov) that lists drugs which may have sexual side effects like impotence and sexual dysfunction. She also discusses that the performance-enhancing drugs like Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra may have adverse effects on sexual health with prolonged use.
The video discusses recreational drugs like cocaine and alcohol, and even some drugs you may not have suspected. According the NIH list, psychiatric drugs and antidepressants such as Prozac, Zoloft and Valium may also cause impotence. Even drugs used to treat diabetes, blood pressure, heartburn and allergies may cause sexual dysfunction.
Impotence can also be caused by poor physical health and other health issues. Nerve blockage in the lower back can cause difficulties with one’s sex life for both men and women, including problems maintaining an erection, etc. The good news is that these and other issues can often be addressed without the use of performance-enhancing ED drugs.
