I started with Tricor due to high triglycerides. Two years later (some 8 years ago now) my doctor switched me to Trilipix. I didn't have a cholesterol problem, just high triglycerides though my HDL is a bit lower than normal (a genetic trait). After using trilipix for a year I noticed a big drop in libido in general. During the next year the ED started making itself known. For the past 6 years I have not been able to get and/or maintain an erection even with Viagra. My testosterone levels were way below minimum normal levels so I started injecting one CC of depo-testosterone (200mg/ml) once a week. This has helped but not solved the problem. I noticed that a few times when I had not taken my trilipix that the next day I would experience a partial erection (about half way up, so to speak). That is what led me to looking up any connection between the trilipix and ED. I may try not taking the trilipix for 30 days to see what, if any, effect it may have.
