As a sexologist I cannot comment on these none FDA approved substances for treatment of sexual dysfunctions.
Loss of erection due to performance anxiety is a very common experience amongst men. Any degree of anxiety runs contrary to the process of sexual arousal.
So managing performance anxiety can involve focusing on reducing the anxiety response and it helps during masturbation to utilise a range of fantasies to work on improving associations of having an erection along with the mental images.
Then having a sexual partner who is supportive and reassuring helps too.
In severe cases we may prescribe one of the PDE 5 meds (viagra, levitra, cialus) for a brief period as "confidence boosters".
The point being there is no medication specifically for the anxiety element of your difficulty, but well for the erectile element.
That said if the anxiety is really severe, no amount of these medications will help.
Then seeing a sex therapist would be advised.
