Talk to your doctor: Aldactone (spironolactone) and concor both could cause ed. Please review this with your doctor to find a better alternative. Do not stop medications by yourself.

Possible Aldactone (spironolactone): Aldactone (spironolactone) has testosterone blocking properties. Consider asking your doctor about a trial discontinuation for a period of time and see if that helps. Eplerenone may be an alternative if it makes a difference.
