  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Blood pressure is well controlled (120/80) but feeling faint at times like it is too low. I exercise regularly, but don't seem to lose the 20-30 extra pounds (I weight 225) so my Dr does refuses to reduce the meds until my BMI score is better . Erections are getting slower to build, faster to lose and harder to maintain. Dr. prescribed Cialis but besides costing over $20 a pill and not covered by insurance, it makes my ears ring like crazy.

    The very first thing they ask you to do is to get your weight down to near normal. This has a double benefit: It will lower your blood pressure and it will (or should) help with the ED. There are no guarantees however. EVERY drug has side effects. Some are major, others may be benign. But, combining drugs, as we are often forced to do, introduces yet another round of possible side effects! I try to minimize the total number of drugs I take, currently I'm on Losartan 100 mg, Omeprazole 20 mg, Testosterone injections 400 mg and soon amlodipine besylate ?mg. If Amlodipine doesn't start helping in a month or two, I will insist my doctor switch to an Ace Inhibitor.

    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.

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

    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!
