That could be (though unsure) that it could be the metadate constricting the blood vessels, there by not allowing full blood flow to the penis.

Welcome to the joys of stimulant medication dude! Seriously though, Andy nailed it though.

Give it time to see if the problem goes away. Otherwise the issue can be remedied with viagra, levitra, or cialis.

or stopping the metadate. Sad that we live in a country where we fix side effects of a pill with another pill.

Besides peripheral vasoconstriction, stress/depression could easily be causing this. Look at your lifestyle.

Well once you try one of the ED meds there is no going back! Power beyond belief.

Some noradrenic drugs can effect noradrenic receptors in the prostate causing
ED and/or urinary hesitancy.

Tamsulosin as an effective treatment for reboxetine-associated urinary hesitancy.
Demyttenaere K, Huygens R, Van Buggenhout R.

Department of Psychiatry and Institute for Familial and Sexological Sciences, University Hospital Gasthuisberg, Leuven, Belgium.

Reboxetine, the only selective noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor, is an effective and well tolerated antidepressant. Although reboxetine has no anticholinergic effects, urinary hesitancy/retention is occasionally observed in male patients. A peripheral noradrenergic mechanism of action has been suggested as being responsible for this side-effect. To test this hypothesis, the alpha1A-receptor antagonist, tamsulosin, was administered to six male patients who developed urinary hesitancy in association with reboxetine treatment. The evolution of the severity of the urinary hesitancy was assessed using the American Urological Association (AUA) symptom index and a (dis)satisfaction item score. Tamsulosin (0.4 mg/day) rapidly ameliorated symptoms in all patients. After 1 week of tamsulosin treatment, total AUA symptom index score and the (dis)satisfaction item score had decreased significantly (P = 0.04 and P = 0.007, respectively). Furthermore, tamsulosin was well tolerated in all patients. These results suggest that tamsulosin is an effective treatment for reboxetine-associated urinary hesitancy.

This thread is bumming me out, because I had this problem with Adderall, and I just got on Metadate and I was hoping that I wouldn't have this issue ( my wife as well lol) with Metadate... Perhaps I'll be lucky and not have the same anecdote to report back..

I have found a non prescription solution to the problem discussed in this post.

I'm not sure if linking to another post is allowed in these forums, but look under the Vyvanse section for a similar post.

I listed out the supplements to take in that post.

If you still have questions, feel free to send me a private message.

Hope it helps!
