Q & A: Testosterone Therapy Combined with ED Treatment
Adding testosterone replacement therapy to sildenafil (Viagra) treatment does not appear to make substantial difference for men suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED), American and Swiss researchers have found.
Their study, published last month the Annals of Internal Medicine, involved 140 men. All of the participants had both ED and low testosterone. All of the men were given sildenafil. Half of them also had testosterone therapy; the other half took a placebo.
The men's erectile function was reassessed after 14 weeks. Some of the men who had taken testosterone saw some slight improvement, but overall, the researchers concluded that adding testosterone therapy to sildenafil was "not superior" to using sildenafil and placebo in the treatment of ED.
