Re: Toprol increase
Being a female - no! :-) but I understand it is a common problem. Complain! Your sex life is important, it won't help your stress levels and hence your BP if you are having to cope with problems in that area as well as everything else. There are heap of other meds around with different modes of action that won't have that effect eg some of the newer enzyme (ACE, angiotension) inhibitors. Don't put up with it. This is also a common side effect of the SSRI antidepressants eg Zoloft and Prozac for which there are also better alternatives but doctors seem hesitant to recommend them. Too much power in the hands of the drug comanies and too little in the hands of the patients! Go for it! Best of luck.
