  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Have been on blood pressure meds for 6-8 mos. minimum w/no problems, so I strongly suspect my erectile dysfunction is NOT due to any of these. However, have noticed since being on Depakote - which has greatly helped with bipolar disorder - I've had moderate to "severe" ED. (I wouldn't use that term, but it's more than moderate.)
