That is a great question and one that is best answered by your primary care doctor
or a doctor specializing in the urogenital system such as a urologist
. In general, erectile dysfunction can sometimes be a short term issue that is very common in men for a short period of time. When this becomes a chronic issue, there is usually something more concerning underlying it such as vascular disease which is one of the first signs of erectile dysfunction or depression
or anxiety. All of these issues need further medical work up and so it is very important that you are evaluated by your primary care doctor as soon as possible so that they can perform the appropriate workup and then diagnose what the issue is and what the correct treatment options are. All these issues can be treated or managed medically and so it is important that they are diagnosed and treated appropriately in a timely manner. With regards to the medications you have been prescribed, you may take them as they have been prescribed but these will only treat the symptoms you are having but will not treat the underlying issues which should be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible.
