    If your mediation is stable, and you feel normal, then why not? However, what is the cause of your sexual dysfunction?

    addisons1, Since you have addisons your testosterone is probably low. Has it been checked? Mine is very low & I'm female. I am using just a bit of gel replacement. I think men treat it more aggressively if it is a problem.

    Hi Wanda and Orion,
    First thank you for your reples. I don't know the cause of my ed, but it has been a problem always. I've never talked to anyone about it until now. I am 28 and it seems it is getting more severe since the addison condition that was discovered last year.
    I haven't checked my testosterone levels, i've never considered that. My concern about Viagra was that addisonians have low blood pressure, so i was not sure if Viagra could have any negative impact on this.
    Thank you again.
    N

    I think you better have all your hormones checked including, testosterone, LH, FSH, thyroid, DHEA, prolactin and growth hormone. You need to find the reason for your ED which could well be related to any or all of the hormones I listed. Further, your Addison's could be related to other more serious conditions such as pituitary problems. It's time to get tot he bottom of these problems before it progresses further.

    Hi Oreon,
    My endocrinologist does routinly check few of the hormones you listed esspecially tyroid one. I agree maybe it's time to check them all and try to find the real cause.
    Thank you for your interest and help.
