No to testosterone with sildenafil for erectile dysfunction
Adding testosterone to sildenafil treatment does not improve erectile function compared with sildenafil alone, say the authors of new research (Annals of Internal Medicine 2012;157:681).
Men aged 40 to 70 years with low erectile function scores and testosterone levels (n=140) were randomly allocated to 14 weeks of treatment with sildenafil plus 10g daily of either a 1 per cent testosterone transdermal gel or placebo gel.
Erectile function scores improved in both groups from baseline, but the level of improvement did not differ between the two groups (P=0.15).
