What Blood Pressure Medication Doesn’t Cause Erectile Dysfunction?

Question:

Hi my name is Akhtar, which B.P medicine has zero chance of causing erectile dysfunction?

Answer:

Hi Akhtar,


First, you need to know that high blood pressure itself damages the lining of blood vessels and causes arteries to harden and narrow overtime (atherosclerosis), which decreases blood flow to the penis, leading to ED.
On the other hand, high blood pressure medications also can cause erectile dysfunction, interfere with ejaculation, and reduce sexual desire as side effects.
However, some high blood pressure medications are less likely to cause sexual side effects, such as:
• Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors
• Calcium channel blockers
• Angiotensin II receptor blockers
Please ask your doctor about other medication options. It needs a complete assessment of your overall health and your current blood pressure condition to decide which medication would help you control your BP with a less negative impact on your sexual life. Your doctor also may recommend using sildenafil or vardenafil as needed.
I hope this answers your question.
