Question: Adderall and erection quality
This is probably one for the supplements board. But I’m still a n00b. Anyways..
What supplement can I take with adderall to improve my erection quality? Should I do hormone testing to see if my testosterone is out of whack? Does anyone have any experience with this?
I have been taking adderall almost everyday for about a year and (until about a few months ago) have been able to keep doing PE exercises. I would take a 20mg xr capsule in the morning and was still able to do exercises and get an erection etc. I even saw some growth. Sometimes I would travel to visit a lady friend not take it, have sex, and perform well without much anxiety. Last semester I stopped doing exercises because I didn’t want my dick to be worn out before making the sex. The reason being that I had a new lady friend who was actually at my college. The problem was that when we would hook up I would still be speeding on 20mg of adderall. I couldn’t *not* take it because I needed it to study and for class. I also believed that I should be able to get an erection and perform anyways (I have had sex on adderall and it is actually rather amazing). But alas nothing would happen. There are a myriad of related psychological reasons why I couldn’t get it up for this particular girl. They are, at least, indicated by the fact that even when I would not take it I would still not be able to get an erection.
The stress of this particular relationship also got to me. I have having heart palpitations and left arm numbness. I was also suffering from paranoia and insomnia. All of which completely freaked me out and resulted in my stopping adderall completely but the symptoms persisted. I went to a doctor. Turned out my heart was fine (very healthy even). The symptoms went away after the doctor dispelled them. I later asked about a temporary viagra prescription but my neurologist and family practitioner were both incredibly reluctant to write a scrip for me. They said I was healthy and young and should not have sexual health problems (lovely). They also talked about the possibility of seeing a urologist and testing my testosterone levels. In the end I decided to have my prescription lowered and switched to IR.
The IRs work all right. There is less bite to them and my rational is that I will be long off them by the time I get around to having sex in the evening. But the relationship has since ended and the semester is over so I didn’t get to test my theory.
I am more or less normal now but my eq is utter crap. I can’t get it up at all, for anything. If I do I last for a few seconds. Masturbation is straight up not pleasurable. Sex seems out of the question. Finally doing PE is just impossible: it is impractical because I can’t stay erect.
I have always had a ton of anxiety about sex and, to date, I have only performed adequately for one girl. But with this particular girl I had to go through absolute psychological hell to get over my inhibitions so I could have sex with her. So.. I can’t seem to separate what is physiological and psychological. I am depressed as all hell because I feel impotent. I don’t want to pursue lady friends because I don’t want to have to confront the issue of my dysfunctional penis. Finally, the hormone testing seems expensive, time consuming, and embarrassing (my parents would have to know why I am doing all this testing if they are going to pay for it).
Does anyone have any experience with this?
