If you experience ED and think that it may be a result of medication you are taking, do not stop taking the medication without first consulting your doctor. If the problem persists, your doctor may be able to prescribe a different medication.

Other substances or drugs that can cause or lead to ED include recreational and frequently abused drugs, such as:

Alcohol
Amphetamines
Barbiturates
Cocaine
Marijuana
Methadone
Nicotine
Opiates
Aside from the well-known complications that the use and abuse of these drugs can cause, ED is not often mentioned. However, use of these drugs can cause ED. These drugs not only affect and often times suppress the central nervous system, but can also cause serious damage to the blood vessels, resulting in permanent ED.
