Customer Question
Nurse, I have been off...
Nurse, I have been off of amitriptyline for 2 weeks, but continue to not get an erection or reach ejaculation. I had only been on the med for 4 weeks for sleep. I had a great intimate life prior to taking this med and now I'm kinda freaking out that the effects are permanent. Is this going to get better?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

The effect of amitriptyline is temporary.

You should get back your erection in 3-4 months from now on.

The effect of amitriptyline is nerve related not blood flow related.

That is why this is not a long term problem.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
