Many men have problems with erections and premature ejaculation at some point in their lives, so don''t worry. Erection and premature ejaculation problems tend to generate incredible amounts of concern, anxiety, shame and sometimes even terror, because your penis is not functioning as it''s supposed to. When these feelings start to come up associated with your sexual problems, it becomes hard to think clearly. It may help you feel better to know that there is almost certainly a solution for your problem, and that many men have experienced these sexual problems at one time or another in their life spans. In the meantime, try to focus on your virtues as a lover and a human being, and remind yourself that you are still a worthwhile man no matter how your penis has been acting.
Causes of inconsistent erections can be physical, psychological, or a combination of the two.
Some possible physiological causes for problems with erections include age, alcohol use, diabetes, kidney disease, neurological disease, lack of sleep, or vascular diseases, such as hypertension, high cholesterol, or atherosclerosis. Other physical causes include hormonal imbalance or side effects of medications.
Psychological causes include stress, anxiety, guilt, depression, low self-esteem, and pressure from a new or " demanding"  partner, or any pressure a man might be placing on himself.
Psychological issues can also compound a physical problem. For example, if issues of blood flow cause inconsistent erections, then anxiety over one''s ability or inability to get erections, or to get erections when a man wants them, creates additional pressure and as a result, fewer erections.
Some lifestyle changes a man can make to help diminish his chances of developing inconsistent erections include:

Not smoking
Smoking can reduce blood flow to the penis.
Maintaining a healthy body weight
Overweight men are more likely to have erection problems.
Exercising regularly
Men with sedentary lifestyles are more likely to experience difficulty with erection.
Seeing your health care provider regularly
Poorly managed or undetected chronic conditions, such as diabetes or high cholesterol, can lead to erection troubles.
Drinking alcohol moderately
Excessive drinking of alcohol restricts blood flow to the penis and affects testosterone production.
Not using illegal drugs
Marijuana, cocaine, and other illicit drugs can damage blood vessels and/or restrict blood flow to the penis.
Managing stress
Stress and anxiety are leading causes of temporary problems with erection.

Given all of this, it''s a smart idea to start with your health care provider. By asking you about your erections, their frequency, the conditions when they are present (i.e., morning erections), and the degree of hardness, as well as by examining you, the provider will be able to identify if the cause is related to blood flow, blood pressure, and/or related physiological causes.As you already told they have prescribed you medication.Know that these medications do not have to be your first step or be relied on as an instant " cure,"  despite what your health care professional may say. Consider what else can affect erections from the list above, and see what other changes you might make.
Hope this helps.
Thanks,Simone
