Erection drugs improve Alzheimer's disease


A new study suggests a potential association between erectile dysfunction (ED) drugs and a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, though it does not establish causality.

The study tracked 269,725 men over five years, finding those prescribed ED medication had an 18% lower risk of Alzheimer's after adjusting for other factors.

While the drugs, originally developed for high blood pressure, show promise in preventing Alzheimer's, further research is needed to confirm these findings and explore the mechanisms behind the association.
