Erectile dysfunction and loss of libido are becoming more prevalent. I am simply compiling a list of anything I find that could possibly cause erectile dysfunction or loss of libido from case studies, personal experiences and side effect list from manufacturers and FDA. If you have anything to add, please let me know and I will add it to the list. Perhaps you can find something that you weren’t aware of that could be contributing to your ED. Of course there are always physiological and psychological factors but what else can cause it?  There are prescription drugs, over the counter drugs, street drugs, chemicals, mental stress, physical stress and food to name a few.

So far I have found lots, no wonder it is such a big problem:
