Multiple Sclerosis: Treating Sexual Problems With MedicinesSkip to the navigation
Multiple sclerosis (MS) can cause sexual problems that may be helped by medicine.
Men may have difficulty achieving or sustaining an erection, and women may have problems with lubrication. Both men and women may have a low sex drive. Sildenafil (Viagra) has been reported to improve sexual problems for men and women who have MS.footnote 1
Other medicines that may improve erectile dysfunction include yohimbine and clomipramine. Medicines may be injected into the penis using a small needle. Mechanical devices also can help.
