A study found that as the number of medications men took increased, so did the prevalence of ED, the authors reported - across all age groups:

Medications taken: 0 to 2. Number of participants 16,126.
Proportion with moderate ED - 15.9%

Medications taken: 3 to 5. Number of participants 10,046.
Proportion with moderate ED - 19.7%

Medications taken: 6 to 9. Number of participants 6,870.
Proportion with moderate ED - 25.5%

Medications taken: 10 or more. Number of participants 4,670.
Proportion with moderate ED - 30.9%

The following drugs are most commonly linked to ED:

Antihypertensive drugs, such as thiazides, beta blockers, and clonidine.

Psychogenic drugs, such as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), tricyclic antidepressants, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, and lithium

57% of the men in the survey were on more than three different drugs. The older the participants, the more likely they were to be on over three medications.

Percentage of men on more than three medications according to age:

50 to 59 years - 53%
60 to 70 years - 66%
