Research Survey from Peyronie’s Disease Institute – Confidential
This survey is a very important project of PDI and it should be important to you, too. The purpose of these survey questions is to search for possible contributing or predisposing factors, or related conditions that might prove useful in advancing the understanding natural Peyronie’s disease treatment. Your responses will be useful in developing a profile associated or dependent conditions that might be related to PD in some way that has yet to be determined, thus helping to change the way we go about Peyronie’s treatment.
Our intention is to collect information from as many men with PD as possible, compare their answers, and develop clinical profiles to explore for indicators in the disease process. In so doing we hope to find a common trend or similarity that might help us to understand PD better. Filling out this survey could be a good way to help others and to help yourself. Please take a few moments to answer the Peyronie’s disease questions listed below. We really appreciate your help by providing us with this information. Please choose one answer for the multiple choice questions. For all the other questions, please answer by clicking on either “Yes” or “No”. “You are being asked for your email address so that PDI can communicate with you if additional information is needed concerning a particular answer you have given. This will only be done if this information is important in a developing statistical pattern of answers.” Again, thanks for the benefit of your information and time.

I’m experiencing Peyronie’s disease from a prescription called Metoprol. I was prescribed this medication in August 2018, after I had a pacemaker implanted for bradycardia and never informed of the possibility of Peyronie’s disease. Here it is over a year later and I am just now experiencing Peyronie’s disease. I am currently waiting to see a urologist. In the mean time I have some questions: 1. Do I have a legal case for medical malpractice since I was never informed of the possibility of Peyronie’s disease? 2. Will my Peyronie’s disease go away if I stop taking my medication Metoprol? I have since stopped taking Metoprol. But my penis is still curved and there is a slight lump. Thanks
Sorry to hear about your side effect of Peyronie’s disease from Metoprolol.
Metoprolol is in the beta-blocker class of drugs. It is used in cases where blood flow through arteries and veins must be maintained. Metoprolol is commonly used to treat chest pain and high blood pressure in cases where heart failure is an issue. In spite of many side effects, it is still used because it is effective for many cardiovascular problems. One of these side effects is Peyronie’s disease.
The attitude commonly expressed by a cardiologist in regard to Metoprolol resulting in Peyronie’s disease is interesting. They will say, “I am interested in saving your life. If Metoprolol causes you to develop Peyronie’s disease, at least you are alive. Some cases of PD are not that bad, so what is the big deal? If you get a bad case of Peyronie’s disease you can always have an operation to fix it. Be grateful you are alive.” Side effects are not typically a concern of the MD, if they think there is a reasonable trade-off; getting a small problem to avoid a large problem. Of course, with Peyronie’s disease a man will always evaluate the seriousness of the condition in a way that is much different than an MD who does not have to live with a bent penis. The MD says, “You got PD? A little snip-snip here and there, what’s the big deal?” The big deal is, of course, more side effects and unintended consequences of PD surgery that often can have bad results.
Better to first try PDI natural treatment to see if you can avoid surgery and more drugs. The PDI treatment concept is designed to support and encourage natural recovery from PD. We have developed a treatment protocol that supports, promotes and strengthens the ability to heal Peyronie’s disease so that perhaps a man can heal his PD just like the 50% of men whose PD goes away by spontaneous recovery. Since 2002 our records show we get 8-10 reports of marked to moderate success over Peyronie’s disease when the PDI treatment is done correctly, for every one report of failure.
I suggest you talk to an attorney if you think you were given bad medical advice and treatment.
Your Peyronie’s disease will not go away on its own just because you stop taking Metoprolol. You now have to do something to help yourself heal the problem. Be careful about using extreme measures that can make it worse. Be conservative. Good luck to you. TRH
