  • Have had running nose since priapism came about 5 or more years ago and has not gone away completely. My priapism comes back if I stop taking Meds for it . I have had priapism operations about 10 times in 5 or less years. My clozapine I think is my cause for priapism , it is a side effect I found in a drug facts medical book. I trim my nose hair and still have a runny nos, even if I don't trim. Doctor says He can't figure out why I get priapism so many times , He says I should be impotent from it , but I'm not . Is there a cure for a related priapism runny nose? I have not tried any nose Meds yet. Would really like some help or cures I can get . Thank You.......
