Peyronie’s disease treatment
The information contained in this section of the site is intended for US healthcare professionals only. If your healthcare professional HCP diagnoses you with Peyronie's disease, he or she may talk with you about different treatment options. Sometimes, an HCP may advise you to hold off on treatment and wait to see if your curve gets any worse. As you consider treatment options, keep in mind that Peyronie's disease is unlikely to go away on its own and may get worse over time.
Medications for Peyronie's Disease
Peyronie's disease is when you have a curved or bent penis. It is caused by scar tissue forming along the shaft of the penis. This causes painful erections and a bend or curve, usually about halfway along the penis.
Peyronies is also closely associated with erectile dysfunction. There is no known non-surgical cure for PD and surgery can often result in more scarring, shortening or loss of sensation and adequate erectile function. Cases that involve calcification seem to do the worst with non-surgical treatment. Non-surgical therapies include Vitamin E, Potaba, colchicine, tamoxifen, carnitine, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Unfortunately, formal studies have shown no benefit of any of these over placebo.
