Is ADD Disorder Related To Impotence?
By Antony Virgese
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) can result in impotence. It's associated with low attention spans and hyperactivity. The symptoms are manifested early in childhood and continue in varying degrees into adulthood. Antidepressants and stimulants can control ADD disorder to certain extents. But, in the long run, it can lead to impotence.
ADD also called ADHD is more common among boys than girls. Extreme restlessness, feeding difficulties and constant thirst are the symptoms during childhood. As adults they show poor concentration. They are fearless in taking unwanted risks, have inflexible personality and suffer from constant sleep problems. Treatment during the early years can control ADD disorder to a certain extent. Meeting a good doctor is the appropriate way to begin a treatment. For men who suffer from this disorder, consultation of a medical practitioner is necessary to learn more about erectile dysfunction.
Adderall is an effective drug for treating ADD. Though the drug boosts sex drive initially, after some time the interest
in sex diminishes. Impotence is the biggest casualty for men who have ADD. Studies on animals showed that amphetamines can decrease testosterone levels in the body. The levels of testosterone predict erections in men. A decreasing testosterone level is an alarm signal for men
who are under anti-depressants as it increases the possibility of impotence in them.
Common side effects of Adderall
Nervousness and headache
Dizziness and dryness in mouth
Change in sexual desires
Weakness is associated with ADD. It can spark off impotence leaving men frustrated and unhappy. It also alters the blood flow and decreases the heart beat. A reduced blood flow affects the erection function. Drugs like Adderall can provide relief in treating ADD but in the process, it will impede the normal flow of blood and cause impotence in men.
