    Hi

    Before being diagnosed last year with Type 2 i had no problems regarding Erectile Dysfunction but since diagnosis i have not been able to get an erection despite being put on Levitra and sidenfall. I am convinced it is the Metformin but the doctor says not. Has anyone else had issues with these tablets? I am 40 in a long term relationship and really starting to get fed up aboput this. Any advice would be greatl;y appreciated. Apologies to any ladies reading this but it appears its one of the big downsides od Type 2.
