It seems to impact men more than women.

HBP meds CAN impact your sex life and libido. YOu need to talk with a Pharmacist about your meds.....why wait?

MY NEW saying: (borrowed from Delila)

"If you want to do something, you'll find a way, if you don't, you'll find an excuse."

I think that my meds have had a major impact on my sex life when the dose was higher. I noticed it and after research I on the medication Low libido was listed as a possible side effect.

My doctor lowered the dosage but the low dosage didn't help my blood pressure. So we changed meds. It took at least 4 changes to finally come up with the right med and dosage.

I find that exercising helps increase my libido

I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way!

Thankfully, it's not a problem but then again, I haven't been on the meds for that long (just 3 years). I wonder if down the road it has impacted anyone...
