Sertraline/trazodone And Ed Sexual Dysfunction Issues...

Recommended Posts

I am prescribed both of the meds above. I have some issues going on with ED and dysfunction. I have a PC dr appt coming up but want to be prepared on what to do. Is there an actual c&p exam for these and what is said/done during this. Any help would be great.

What I've heard from others is, the mentioning of using enhancement drugs like viagra, levitra, etc, is saying you don't have the problem when using these drugs, or if you did try them, they didn't work with the ED. Best route is search prior post's by using the search box here on Hadit. Type in something like "ED C&P exams" and/or "ED Questionnaire for ratings". You can also check out different forems here. Other than that, it's all I can do to help. I'm sure others will chime in to help also.

I guess what you are saying here is that drugs the doc prescribed for (SC) depression/ptsd has caused ED secondary to sc depression/ptsd. There is no doubt that many/most antidepressants cause ED.

I think this is just like the rest of the stuff. Basically, you need a Veteran friendly doc who prescribes ED meds such as Viagra, and states that this condition (ED) is seconadary to SC anti depressant meds.

If the doc does this, then you should eventually, upon appeal, of course, get the extra 95 per month for "loss of use" of reproductive organ.

Of course, the VA wants to embarrass the Veteran by denying this and make sure he tells the whole world when his case goes to the CAVC that he has ED. Why does the VA just not make Veterans wear T-shirts whenever they go to the mall that says:

"I have ED due to taking anti depressants from my PTSD".


"I have been denied SC by the VA for Loss of Use of a Reproductive Organ"

....Just to make sure that EVERYONE has read your CAVC/BVA decision, since some may not have.

It is apparently not embarrassing enough to go to your doc to get ED meds....NOoooooooooo...your female doc may not tell EVERYONE. Lets make sure EVERY single person on earth...the entire Regional Office, the BVA, the CAVC staff..and any Vets advocate or attorney that reads about it can say "Gee...I did not know Bob Veteran had ED....I wonder why I saw him at Walmart the other day and he seemed to be pretty happy with his wife....I need to find out what his wife is doing to satisfy HER needs"..

Paxil is famous for producing ED in men and inability to have orgasm in both men and women. All SSRI uptake inhibitors do this even new drugs like wonder pain drug Cymbalta. Clonazepam will do it to you and all narcotics.

Yes. I went through a C&P recently for medication use resulting in ED. The exam is standard male exam, they try to see if there are any other possible causes (physical, etc.) for what you might be experiencing and if they rule out the other possibilities, the medication as a cause should remain. My claim was pretty quick with this issue.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
