  1. Could an underlying illness be causing my erectile dysfunction or making it worse?
  2. Could any of my medications be causing my ED or making it worse?
  3. If so, can I safely change my medications or their doses?
  4. How might the use of tobacco or alcohol contribute to ED?
  5. Could stress or other psychological problems be contributing to my erection difficulties?
  6. Should I see a counselor, a sex therapist, or a psychiatrist?
  7. Could a drug like Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn, Stendra, or Viagra work for me? If not, could another drug be an option for me?

  9. How much improvement can I expect?
  10. What nonmedication treatments (such as implants, vacuum devices, or surgery) are available? What are the pros and cons of these treatments?
