In reply to Klonopin causing Ed or as, posted by Sebastian Howard on April 25, 2020, at 3:12:03

> Ive been prescribed klonopin at 1 mg a day (though I only take it when needed) and have noticed problems with getting or keeping an erection. Now to clarify I can still get up and masturbate and such so its not full on Ed but Im 24 and I dont just get erections without trying or wake up with a hard on or have wet dreams or anything. I actually have to like play with myself and focus on like sexual things and such to be able to masturbate. Is this normal and Im just too worried about (with regards to medication in general) or should I try to changing to something else for my anxiety stemming from ocd? Ive heard on an older board talking about this, about Xanax xr or something like that but person never replied as to the effectiveness of it.

Yes, benzodiazepines can cause erectile dysfunction. If you have a harder time getting hard (pun not intended) relative to what you did before starting the drug, it is likely a side-effect. That said, it is normal to have to fantasise about sexual stuff to get an erection.

What symptoms are you intending to treat with the drug?
