The vascular processes that produce an erection are controlled by the nervous system and certain prescription medications may have the side effect of interfering with necessary nerve signals. Among the possible culprits are a variety of stimulants, sedatives, diuretics, antihistamines, and drugs to treat high blood pressure, cancer, or depression. But never stop a medication unless your doctor tells you to. In addition, alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drugs, such as marijuana, may contribute to the dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction in younger men. With younger men, psychological problems are the likeliest reason for erectile dysfunction. Tension and anxiety may arise from poor communication with the sexual partner or a difference in sexual preferences. The sexual difficulties may also be linked to these factors:

Depression
    Fatigue
    Stress
    Feelings of inadequacy
    Personal sexual fears
    Rejection by parents or peers
    Sexual abuse in childhood

 
 Treatment depends on the cause of the ED. For instance, psychological causes may require:

    commonsense advice to one or both partners
    counselling
    psychotherapy
    relationship counselling.

Personally, I feel that in some cases of psychologically-induced ED, it's worth trying erection-aiding drugs to help the man back into action and boost his confidence. 
The treatments for the type of ED that has a physical origin are listed below.
