Q: Does lisinopril have any effect on male genital organs? Does its prolonged use impair one’s sexual life and have adverse results on the renal system?
A: Lisinopril use may decrease libido and cause erectile dysfunction. Use may also cause your kidneys to fail. These are known side effects but do not occur very often. You should discuss your concerns with your doctor. All drugs have side effects. You and your doctor need to decide if the benefits of a drug outweigh the risks associated with taking it.
