Q: I’ve been on both Lisinopril and Hydrochlorothiazide for about a year now. I’ve noticed that I can not maintain an erection because of the medications, is there anything I could change to have a better sex life again?
A: You need to talk to your doctor. The blood pressure medicines you take don’t
usually cause problems with having sex. Your doctor may find another cause for
your sexual problems such as diabetes. Also, your doctor may feel a prescription
medicine to help you maintain an erection is appropriate.
