Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

suboxone can cause anxiety which can kill an erection.

you can ask your doctor for a prescription for viagra to use while on suboxone.

that could help.

you can also try to relax more which can help you have a better erection.

if you are having sex too frequently, this can make it hard for you to have an erection

if you are drinking alcohol or not getting enough sleep, this can affect erections.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.

suboxone can cause anxiety which can cause worse erections.

you should talk to your doctor about it

perhaps you can taper off of the suboxone and not have to take it anymore.
