High & Low Blood Pressure board


I believe all HBP meds. have sexual side effects. All blood pressure medications affect our Adrenalin in some way. The only medications which (have been more researched) and appear to be more neutral, are some of the ARB's, such as COZAAR, DIOVAN, ATACAND and BENICAR and 2 Beta Blockers (BISOPROLOL and BYSTOLIC). From what I've read, the SYSTOLIC (top number of blood pressure) has the strongest relation to men's sexual function. The lower the number the harder to crank up the erector set. Other factors (of course) can also have negative effects such as; High Cholesterol (Low HDL), Diabetes, Alcholol, Smoking, Anxiety etc. If you combine all of these these things (regardless of medication) be prepared to Shutdown your love-life.
