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.
