Discussions that mention furosemide

sandy,

The medical jargon is that the ACE inhibitors and the ARB (angiotensin receptor blockers) are not deleterious to a man's potency. Also that IF you take a diuretic, Lasix (furosemide) causes only 25% of the problems that thiazide does.

That's what the books say anyway.
Personally, I think that ANY hypertensive has the potential of causing impotence.

The only serious problems with sildenafil, tadalafil and vardenafil will come with coadministration of nitrates/nitrites...that combo can KILL. With an alpha-blocker and other antihypertensives you might see some postural hypotension...dizziness when standing up fast...but nothing too serious.

WORST drugs for erectability are the beta-blockers.

Try an ACE inhibitor and see how your react. (Maybe you won't cough your head off!)
