Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
I've been troubled recently by a lessening of sexual desire and impotence /erectile dysfunction. I began taking singuliar about 2 months ago for allergy sinusitis. It has been effective for that. I would like to know if my problem is likely a combination of the drugs I am taking, or age related and something I should consult a doctor about.
