Some families of high blood pressure drugs rarely cause ED as a side effect. They are:
Calcium channel blockers
ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme) inhibitors — such as captopril (Capoten), benazepril (Lotensin), and lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril) widen blood vessels and increase blood flow.
Erectile dysfunction is rarely a side effect, occurring in less than 1% of patients. There are also drugs known as calcium channel blockers, such as amlodipine (Norvasc), diltiazem (Cardizem, Tiazac), or verapamil (Calan, Verelan).
As a group, they rarely cause erectile dysfunction. In general, alpha-blockers do not often cause ED either. In one study, a small number of men actually had a 100% improvement in their erectile dysfunction after 2 years on the alpha-blocker doxazosin (Cardura).
Drugs known as ARBs (angiotensin II receptor blockers, like losartan (Cozaar) are not only unlikely to cause erection problems, but they may improve sexual function in men with high blood pressure.
A study published in the American Journal of the Medical Sciences looked at the drug Cozaar, an ARB.
At first, just 7% of men and women in the study said they felt sexually satisfied overall.
After 12 weeks of Cozaar, about 58% said they were sexually satisfied. The percentage of men who reported having ED dropped from 75% to 12%.
