Revisions to Erectile Dysfunction drug labels have recently been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to include sudden memory loss as a side effect in users. Label changes are made necessary when multiple users have reported the same symptoms after taking the drug.
The condition, “transient global amnesia,” is temporary memory loss commonly seen in neurological conditions caused by head injury or epilepsy.
The International Journal of Impotence Research recently published a story of a 46-year-old man who was “brought to the emergency room because he had couldn’t remember any events since waking up in the morning or the night before, including sexual intercourse after taking a popular erectile dysfunction drug. His memory gradually improved and tests for cardiovascular and brain problems came back normal.” The German neurologists who wrote the story said there had been 35 reports of amnesia in ED drug users between 1998 and 2001.
Some other side effects of Erectile Dysfunction drugs include: drop in blood pressure or loss of vision and hearing capacity.
