Lots of guys are proud of having a big male member, and other men with less-impressive packages may feel insecure about the size of their equipment. Yet in the bedroom, male organ size gives way in importance to male organ health and to male organ function; clearly, a healthy, if small, manhood that functions well and is handled with skill is preferable to a flabby monster that can’t get the job done. Of course, men with members of all sizes – and shapes and ages, etc. – may experience male organ function issues, either regularly or intermittently, and for a variety of reasons. If this happens to a guy, he may want to carefully read the labels on any medications he is currently taking; some can have an impact on male organ function.
Is it all medications?
First, it’s important to realize that not all medications are associated with male organ function issues. And even when medications used to treat a particular problem do have such an association, it’s rare that ALL medications used to treat that problem will have that association. And finally, even if certain medications do list male organ function issues as a possible side effect, that doesn’t mean that every man who takes that medication is going to experience male organ function issues. Every person metabolizes medication in a slightly different way or at a slightly different rate, and side effects are also often affected – positively and negatively – by things like diet, exercise, obesity, alcohol intake, etc.
Some more likely
That being said, there are medications for certain conditions that may be more likely to be associated with male organ function than others. Again, however, that doesn’t mean that every man who takes medications for these conditions is going to experience issues with their member.
Among the medications more likely to cause male organ function issues are some (not necessarily all) medications that are used to treat high blood pressure, antidepressants, antihistamines, muscle relaxants, chemotherapy medications, antiarrythmics, medications for treating Parkinson’s disease, sleeping medications, medications for treating ulcers, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications.
If a man is using medications that he suspects may be causing tumescence issues (whether the medication falls into one of these categories or not), he should bring this to the attention of his doctor and discuss whether an alternative medication might be a better option.
Not just tumescence function
Although tumescence issues are the male organ function problem most often associated with mediations, there can be other problems as well. For example, some studies indicate that certain mediations may bring about a degree of manhood shrinkage, something that most men wish to avoid. Medications most often thought to possibly cause manhood shrinkage include antidepressants and antipsychotics, medications used for attention deficit and/or hyperactivity disorders, and medications for enlarged prostates.
Again, male organ shrinkage is not necessarily related to all medications used to treat these issues, and not every man who does use medications associated with male member shrinkage will experience this complication. And as mentioned above, discussing with a doctor whether a medication may be causing manhood shrinkage and what alternatives may be available is key.
Medications are only one potential source of male organ function issues. In general, a healthier member is less likely to experience problems, so men are well advised to apply daily a superior male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). The most appropriate crèmes will contain a range of vitamins, including A, B5, C, D, and E. Applying these vitamins topically through a crème directly to the manhood allows them more direct access to the organ. The best crèmes will also include L-arginine, an amino acid that helps in the process by which male organ blood vessels are enabled to expand when blood flow increases.
