Re: Erectile dysfunction?

When i first started Ritalin i started to notice some ED problems was taking 100mg per day. I switch to adderall and was taking 100mg of this stuff as well.

With the ED i took levitra when i was on Ritalin. Boy sex was great. I'm sure i could have poll voted with my hard-on.
Me and my dr agreed to switch to Adderall 100mg. Sex sucked if i wasn't touched just right. I could take viagra & cialis together and i be lucky if i'm hard for 20 min or pre ejaculation.

I stop taking Adderall and notice heartburn also went away. I get can a boner without any ED meds. yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

I'm wondering if there are any long term affects from stimulant drugs.

Re: Erectile dysfunction?

I was diagnosed with ADD in 1994 and began with Ritalin. I progressed to spansules, Adderall capsules and now finally to Vyvanse. I didn't begin to experience ED until 2003 or 2004. Then in 2007 I began taking Viagra and then Cialis.

I really appreciate this thread because no physician including urologists has ever linked ED with add stimulants. Plus all I have ever read until this thread linked ED to cardiovascular disease. That is right. I have been worrying that I have cardiovascular disease which is causing ED. Now in a week or so I'll stop taking Vyvanse for a few days and see if my erections return.

With this thread info I am relieved.

I have not experienced any problems taking Vyvanse and Cialis concurrently.

By the way I am 65 years old.

I get Cialis outside the us. 20 mg is about $2.50 each.

If it turns out there is a link I would still take Vyvanse and Cialis. Amphetamines have changed my life for the better.

Re: Erectile dysfunction?

You posted this along time ago, just wondering, still on Straterra? Everything ok? I am in week 4 and now at 80 mg. Have all the side effects mentioned but I was encouraged by your report on symptoms abating. My dry mouth seems to be going away so I am hopeful the urination and ED problems abate as well.

Re: Erectile dysfunction?

I was stuck on clompiprimine for a loooong time, so sexual function shot to pieces. Evil drug. But I've had a positive way out.

I recommend Tadacip (tadalifil, but licenced generic, not random illegal generic) rather than Viagra. The side effects are fewer, and the duration is about 24-36 hours. It makes it much more user friendly. It's also more affordable, yet still a legally supervised medication with a properly protected brand name. Made in India, yes - but under supervisory licence, not in a backstreet in Bombay.

Re: Erectile dysfunction?

I had a problem with ED the first week or so on Vyvanse but now it's almost the exact opposite my libdo is that of a 16 year old. I'm almost 30 and live right next door to a major university so yeah that probally doesn't help either.

Re: Erectile dysfunction?

For me, it went the opposite way... I had the tensile strength of an iron spike when I first start taking meds at 29yrs old... I've switched a couple of times, but never had issues until a few years ago. I tak Vyvanse now, but have a problem with keeping a full erection. It's not exactly 100%, but it's not flacid either. But I also can't get too involved with intercourse because my blood pressure will drop out and I can't keep it.

I've been considering the Cialis route but haven't taken much time to look into how Vyvanse works with the ED drugs.

You mentioned you started meds at 29, how old are you now?
If you're around that age, you definitely shouldn't be having ED issues.

I'd have both testosterone and estrogen (E2) tested

Re: Erectile dysfunction?

Common when you're taking stimulants of any kind. I've been prescribed a low dose of cialis as soon as I mentioned to my psychiatrist the erectile side effects of the adderall. It worked great in the background, and I don't even really have to take it all the time, but on days when the adderall seems to be rocking through my system, the Cialis at least lets me get it up quick, and stay hard.

Anyone else mix cialis with adderall, or have any experience with generic ED drugs?

Re: Erectile dysfunction?

Taking Zoloft or Celexa does it for me. The SSRI's kill libido and erections

Re: Erectile dysfunction?

I had this problem with Adderall XR. I took it in the morning and went over to my girlfriends house to have sex before work and I couldn't get it up. That was downright terrible. I asked my doc to get off Adderall XR and he put me on Strattera 80mg and no. Not doing that anymore. That stuff is rotting my brain.
The first couple times taking Adderall it made my erections and staying power more intense and the sex was actually better! But I think that was later in the day. For me it seemed to be a intermittent problem and not a consistant one. I dropped the meds out of pride so I never saw what the long term effects were

Woohoo! Thank you for this update! I am titrating up to 40mg on Strattera (currently taking 25mg every other day) and this is the sideeffect that has been most disturbing for me. See, the Stratt works for my ADHD very well, but I've been agonizing over the trade-off. But if it's just a matter of time, then all is well!
