... I don't think this is exactly rocket science. I mean, if you significantly reduce cholesterol, which is required for the manufacture of sex hormones, then it stands to reason that the level of these hormones may also be impacted. As for low libido and ED? Well, one can certainly effect the other. How low of a cholesterol level is too low? Who knows? Everybody is different. I... (21 replies)

... Well, I can see where there might be a basis for statins causing ED. It has to do with hormones. Cholesterol is needed to make sex hormones, and if the cholesterol is lowered too much, it can have a negative impact on the level of these hormones. It makes sense to me. (21 replies)

... "Definitely a side effect" :rolleyes: You make it sound like it's a SIGNIFICANT ONE ..hardly. You'll find ED listed (in the insert) as a side effect for just about EVERY drug out there....standard "Boiler Plate" lingo to cover legal issues.

... I can't provide links on this site but if you search out the generic name of the drug which is "Simvastatin and Impotence" The well respected medical journal BMJ, described how Simvastatin (ZOCOR) caused ED and Fluvastatin (LESCOL) or aspirin does not. Pravachol has been known to increase morning erections in some research studies. In my experience Lipitor at reasonable doses... (27 replies)
