From this study (1 week ago):
Having severe erectal dysfunction for the past month
From this study (2 weeks ago):
My doctor had me try 1/2 tab of the Micardis HCT and 2 of the Carvedilol but this only made my BP go too high.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
After having testosterone injections for about 4 months, received no relief from ED. However became short of breath and was later diagnosed with a paralyzed diaphragm. I believe the injections caused this problem.
