On the potency in men affects many substances. Research in this area is devoted to a huge number of publications. We’re in answering this question, briefly describing the negative effects of those substances, almost everyone has heard, but many of us have even contacted.
It is about common medicines and so-called psychotropic substances – ie Substances that have an impact on the psyche. First of all, it is alcohol, nicotine and drugs. Alcohol. In small doses stimulates the central nervous system, as is known – “Alcohol in small doses is safe in any quantity. In this regard, alcohol abuse is a major risk factor in the development of erectile dysfunction.
The main reason for violations of the quality of erections on a background of alcohol is a violation of liver function and as a consequence – of the metabolism of male hormones that affect normal sexual function. Among other things intoxicated blunted tactile sensitivity, and as a result of problems with ejaculation until its complete absence.
In addition, as established, nicotine causes atherosclerosis – a dangerous disease, which leads to increased brittleness and blockage of blood vessels. Most suffer from atherosclerosis of the heart and blood vessels of the brain and as a result of man may be a myocardial infarction or stroke, which in themselves make normal sexual activity impossible. But often there is narrowing or complete occlusion of blood vessels of the penis, in which case the patient develops persistent impotence. Of drugs – now this is the main health problem for industrialized countries. The problem lies in the fact that the number of drugs used is very large and describe the impact of each of them is possible, therefore tell you about the impact of some of them. The peculiarity of the impact of drugs on the potency of that directly on the mechanisms of erection, they do not work. Their impact is developed with regular admission to the background of the development of complications of drug abuse. A common mechanism in the occurrence of impotence while taking drugs, is the development of depression, which occurs, when a break in taking of drugs at a time, when a person has already formed drug addiction.
Most doctors faced with non-injecting drug use (i.e. drugs that enter the body not as a result of injection and by inhalation, receiving through the mouth or smoking). In this group, occupy a principal place of Marijuana (hashish), cocaine, amphetamines, LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide). This medication causes a toxic polyneuropathy – a dangerous disease of the nervous system, in which both would die nerve fibers of the human body. This, in addition to other dangerous disorders, leads to disruption of erections due to violation of the innervation of the penis.
For injecting drug users (heroin, morphine, etc.) is also characterized by the development of toxic polyneuropathy, but apart from it there is a risk of specific complications associated with the huge risk of infection, which expose themselves addicts. The most frequent infection, which each injection drug user at risk “catch” AIDS is not as many people think (although this, of course, the most dangerous infections) and viral hepatitis. As a result of viral hepatitis develop very severe liver problems, which lead to impotence. Pharmaceuticals. Of course, the development of erectile dysfunction is a very rare side effect of medication, and usually erectile dysfunction taking place after the abolition of such drugs, but nevertheless aware of the drugs that may cause such a complication should be.
The most common erectile dysfunction occur after administration of neuroleptics – drugs , used in the practice of psychiatrists. Chronic administration of these drugs can cause changes in the motor centers of the brain and lead to the development of parkinsonism – the status of this Parkinson’s disease, which leads to erectile dysfunction. And yet another category of drugs – drugs for the treatment of stomach ulcers from the group of blockers of histamine H2 receptors. Those who take these drugs immediately understand what was going on – first of all “cimetidine”. This antiulcer tool that Propafenone leads to a change in the exchange of male hormones in the body and as a result – to impotence.
So the male ulcer – beware! If you help this drug, it is best to use the more modern of its analogs, such as “Zantac (Generic: Ranitidine 150/300mg)” (“Ranisan”) or “Pepcid (brand names- Famocid)” who are deprived of this serious shortcoming of his predecessor.
