Answer

For impotence, use of a phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor (eg, sildenafil [Viagra]) is becoming popular. Other drugs for erectile dysfunction include yohimbine, papaverine, and alprostadil. Methods to promote coitus and/or ejaculation could also be used; these include implantable penile prostheses or vibrator stimulation.
