Just to update my earlier post. I recently reached the point of, basically, total impotence, while taking the diuretic (Hydrochlorothiazide)! That's when I found out that it is notorious for causing this! I stopped taking it about a month ago, and started drinking a big glass of cranberry juice every morning. The results are the same; urinary urgency. BP readings are higher now, but they were high before, too. My doctor is asking me to take amlodipine besylate tablets, instead. Lotensin or Capoten might be better. I've seen some recovery from the diuretic in just one month after I stopped taking it. I'll see how this works out in the next few months. It's NOT a one-size-fits-all deal. Each persons reactions will be different, so we have to look for the one that gives us the best possible outcome. It really helps to have a good doctor who understands that it's a quality of life question, (and mine does) rather than a long life. There's not much point in living 'forever' if you are not enjoying your life. In contrast my wife's view, I simply refuse to give up and chalk it up to old age and live celibate! She could, I won't.

Norvasc is just the brand name for Amlodoipine Besylate. In other words, it's the same stuff. Best to find a different BP med. The diuretic (Hydrochlorothiazide) may have some effect here, too. I only had mild ED before taking this and I'm taking T, too, but it has gotten much worse. Cialis did NOT help the situation, for me. It looks like once you get it, you got it for life! Bummer! I am a MALE, age 73, white and retired. With a wife who doesn't care, one way or the other. But, I do!

I am going back to Norvasc the brand name because AmlodipiineBesylae is not a substitute for Norvasc. I never had erectile problem on Norvasc.
