Re: erection problems

you may need to tell your doctor. There are other medications he can try besides the beta blocker for which this is a known and common side effect.

Re: erection problems

I'm not familiar with tporol in particular but many beta blockers can cause sexual side effects I believe. Best to ask the doc and read the info that came with your Rx.

Re: erection problems

a common side effect of most anti-hypertensives is erectile dysfunctioning problems. Certainly it's time to check with the doctor about alternative medications or trying the Viagra/Cialis/LEvitra route. However, remember that you cannot take those medications if you are also take nitrate medications.

Re: erection problems

Definitely tell your doctor. Beta blockers are known to cause erection problems in many men. I have talen a beta for years.....and unless there is any other difficulty, you should be able either to reduce the dosage, or use Viagra or Cialis as necessary. But tell your doctor--he may even expect to hear from you on this matter, bud--but know that it can be fixed! Best of luck.
