I am 45, Peyronie’s for 5 years, stable, curve about 75 degrees. I am able to have sexual intercourse, but I worry about getting worse over time. My urologist suggests I take 2 Pentox a day, Is this OK or should I take 3? I also worry about being on the Pentox for years, if I quit after one year will I experience any worsening? Will using Pentox mess with my Immune system? I suffer from lower than normal testosterone, so I get sick easily. Should vitamin D be taken with Pentox to help in immunity?

Dr. Mulhall answers: Firstly, at 5 years the likelihood of your PD worsening is practically zero unless you re-injure your penis. There is no good evidence that Pentox is of significant benefit, although many experts use it because of some experimental (nonhuman) evidence that it has a beneficial effects on PD cells. In speaking with Dr. Tom Lue who introduced this idea, he uses it now for men with calcified plaques to reduce calcium in the plaque. I have stopped using Pentox except for the latter patients. Pentox is a safe medication and will not have an effect on your immune system. There is no data that vitamin D in combination is of any greater benefit.

Previous How do patients who have curvatures of the penis greater than 30 degrees do when the curvature involves just the distal end of the penis? Can it correct itself without treatment? What about vitamin E? Do we typically see worsening of the disease after a period of 12-18 months?
Next I am 65 and was diagnosed with PD 18 months ago. I have a 50-degree upward curvature and some associated erectile dysfunction, but with Viagra I am still able to be sexually active. I plan to purchase the Fastsize Extender and use it in conjunction with L-arginine in hopes of reducing the degree of curvature. Is there a problem using L-argenine and Viagra together?
