How does it cause ED?
Both the psychological factors and medications associated with depression may cause ED. Although psychological reasons only account for approximately 10% of all ED cases, behaviors associated with depression such as inactivity, lack of exercise, and poor eating habits may contribute to ED issues.
Antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs have been known to cause ED because of how they affect nerves and blood circulation. Examples of some medications are Prozac, Zoloft, Sinequan, Ativan, Serax, and Dilantin.
It is important to check with your doctor to find a balance between treating your depression issues and ED.
