A recent survey of 5,000 men carried out for Upjohn, the maker of Viagra Connect, the over-the-counter version of the drug, showed that 18 per cent of 18-24-year-old men had erection difficulties. This echoes what clinicians are seeing. 

This has worrying implications, as while many of the new generation of teenage and young adult Viagra users are otherwise physically fit males. 

The medication is used as a prop to ensure sexual performance. 

Doctors are now increasingly aware that erectile dysfunction (ED) might be a sign of underlying disease and fear that young men may be self-prescribing Viagra. 

Andrea spoke with Dr Maitiú O Toole, Dr Caroline West  & a listener johnny to share his story.
