Re: Do medications that cause impotence affect females?
In general, yes.
The warning usually refers to "sexual disfunction". People assume it means the inability for men to get erections but it's more than just that. It also includes the inability to become aroused or the inability to orgasm, both of these things effect women.

The medication that I just started is Altace. It can be used to protect the kidneys in diabetics and for hypertension in anyone. Impotence is one possible side effect. I've only been on it for almost a week. I really don't want to take something that is going to mess with my sex drive or enjoyment. I can take the nausea, scratchy throat, lethargy, etc., but the sex issue can't be overlooked. LOL
