BP meds & ED: First of all, high bp, especially high systolic bp, is not good for your erectile function. If you are older, this is especially so. Diuretics such as hydrochlorothiazide and spironolatone as well as beta-blockers such as atenolol can cause erection problems. There are some BP meds that may help you with erectile function, including arbs such as losartan and Alpha blockers such as doxazosin.

Try our other forum.: You have posted on our public, information-only forum. In the US, try premium forum HealthTap PRIME, where doctors see you via smartphone, tablet, or laptop. They sometimes can help obtain one-time med refills. You can also send images during a consultation. One can also call her past pharmacy because refills are usually not cancelled when insurance stops, but patients pay the drug's cash price.
