Erection Problems


Q: Hi im a 21 year old man and I have been having erection problems for awhile now. When I was 17 I found a prescription of my dads viagra medication in his room and had become hooked at an early age. This created a dependence on any drug that could make me achieve an erection. I have tried not using any medications-over the counter medications and it was a miserable experience. So psychologically I need them or else I embarrass myself. Im not sure if taking these medications at such a young age may have damaged me or what but I dont even know where to start if I see a doctor. In the past year Ive suffered from slight anxiety issues which Im sure has contributed but not taking a pill that makes me achieve an erection fuels my anxiety even more. Im not quite what type of doctor Id see. So doctor please help, what in the world do I do?
