I have been taking 16mg of Candesartan daily for four years. I never thought to connect my lack of desire these past years to anything other than a pinch of old age, 52. Only other worry I have, and this could be for another forum, loss of some length and girth when aroused. Could be a case of use it or lose it but wonder if any other Candesartan takers have had this issue?
Hi, I have mild cardiovascular disease but am only in my mid-fifties. I am very slim, extremely fit, vegan, with a great HDL and triglycerides profile and fabulous HDL/LDL ratio (so clearly my problem is not dietary) but have high LDL cholesterols for familial/genetic reasons as well as high BP. Doctors have tried me with statins (just 8 weeks' use caused muscle damage and inflammation as well as abnormal liver function tests) and I cannot take ezetimibe (ezetrol) to lower my LDLs as it causes tingling in my extremities and severe depression (suicidal ideation.) I have some pueraria mirifica, bought originally for breast enhancement and daren't use it, in case it makes my atherosclerotic plaques worse, because my GP said I can't take HRT owing to my existing cardiovascular plaques. I've heard that PM improves your lipids profile, though (and in my case could resolve some of the breast and skin looseness problems I'm having post-menopause) and wondered if it might be safe to take in patients with existing atherosclerosis whereas conventional HRT is not. Does anyone in a similar position or know anything about this?
