Common Questions and Answers about Cialis and beta blockers

cialis

Avatar_f_tn I know many many take it with no problem, but I have a tendancy to feel my heart race more than usual during sex and at random times, which is why I take the beta blockers, but I'm not having a normal sex life. I know my doctor knows what's best. He even shared with me that he took Cialis and it helped him a lot. SHould I just try one? I thought about cutting a 5mg pill in half but it says on the bottle do not do that. I really want to have sex again. Will the cialis make the heart race?
Avatar_f_tn That the Metoprolol caused your erectile dysfunction is a presumption and I think an incorrect one at that. I know that the text books say that beta blockers cause erectile dysfunction but in practice they very rarely do. The most cause of your erection difficulties is performance anticipation. You are wondering if you are going to be able to get an erection and failure then becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. The way around this is to take intercourse off the menu for a while.
Avatar_n_tn About 20-years ago my doctor put me on beta-blockers (atenelol) for palpitations and accompanying anxiety attacks. I believe it is not supposed to be taken more than a certain period of time. I was on it for probably two years. Thereafter I got so I couldn’t maintain an erection during sex. I tried Viagra when it first became available, but it just caused a burning in my prostate area and a short-lived partial stiffening.
Avatar_f_tn Can't help you with the sex life part, as I'm a female, but I can share my experience switching from a beta blocker to diltiazem. I have been taking beta blockers for 8 years for SVT and afib. I had an episode of afib and was in the hospital is Sept. They took me off the beta blocker and put me on diltiazem. It didn't control my heart rate like the beta blocker. My resting heart rate went from upper 60s to the low 80s.
Avatar_f_tn I switched a couple years ago to Complera for a brief period that gave me severe depression and worse anxiety so had to stop it too and go back to Atripla. Now I am on beta blockers for the tachycardia, Xanax to help sleep, and Cialis because of the effect the beta blockers have on libido. And I still feel lousy. My labs are good but shouldn't I just switch meds could all this be due to the Atripla?
Avatar_f_tn I don't have high blood pressure, just tachycardia and the metoprolol really helps keep that in check. Should I just stay on metoprolol and try the cialis and see how it works or should I try the cardizem?
Avatar_m_tn Amiloride hydrochloride - Midamor Bumetanide - Bumex Ethacrynic acid - Edecrin Furosemide - Lasix Spironolactone - Aldactone Torsemide - Demadex Triamterene - Dyrenium Beta-blockers Beta blockers block the effect of adrenaline on the cardiovascular system, slow the heart rate, and reduce stress on the heart and the arteries.
Avatar_m_tn I have been on medication, some with beta blockers and some without. My doctor had prescribed cialis, which had minimal effects and then viagra 100mg tablets. At times I will have a hard erection while having intercourse but there are times where it will be semi erect and will not get fully erect.
Avatar_f_tn Do they also look for any blockages? I'm only 33. The beta blockers have ruined my sex life, and now I have to take Cialis. But I take 50mg Metoprolol twice a day and I still have symptoms. Shouldn't it have eliminated all the symptoms? My cardiologist mentioned me trying Caridzem but unless it will stop the tachycardia once and for all and let me be active again I don't want to take it.
590669_tn?1224181750 Hi, Peyronie’s disease is characterized by the appearance of fibrous plaques within the soft tissue of the penis and usually appears in me over the age of 40. Treatment with beta-blockers for hypertension has been reported as a probable predisposing factor. If you are also having testicular atrophy, and not just the reduction in size that sometimes occurs with age, you will need to be evaluated to identify the cause of the problem.
Avatar_m_tn I do have a tight foreskin but this has never been an issue. I have used Viagra and Cialis and these do help but would prefer not to use them. The strange thing is that in the morning I get a very solid and hard erection (probably greater now than in my youth) which lasts for some time, someone said was due to morning testosterone levels. Could I be deficient in testosterone levels at other times of the day?
Avatar_m_tn (Source for that is Medscape cross-checked in Micromedex). I'll see what I can find about Propecia and Cialis/Viagra, I just want to get this posted to try to lower your anxiety. Right now, my advice is see the doctor prescribing Trazodone and ask about alternatives. What are you on it for, if you don't mind my asking?
Avatar_m_tn Medications such as blood pressure medications (especially beta-blockers), heart medications (such as digoxin), some peptic ulcer medications, sleeping pills, and antidepressants may also cause erectile dysfunction. Talk to your partner openly about any fears or apprehensions, eat nutritious healthy food,exercise regularly and cut down on smoking or alcohol if you are taking it. If still a problem then please get yourself evaluated for the medical conditions mentioned above. I hope it helps.
Avatar_m_tn so they have taken me off the beta-blockers which has made a big difference, my resting pulse is now as it was before around 55, and training over the weekend I was holding 145-155 easy for an hour, power walking no pain or discomfort (I wanted to go harder but had to reign myself back). I even took my sons football trianing yesterday, so feeling pretty good My weight has now dropped 20kgs, and my Cholestral levels are at 2.
Avatar_m_tn Some had reported relief of these symptoms by taking alpha blockers. Another person had taken small doses of Cialis with alpha blockers and other supplements, and it helped. Others reported some relief from only supplements. I say we experiment with every option before jumping to conclusions. Even if at best these meds and supplements help temporarily, it is still great. To: Scot007 Hey Scot, tell us next time you take 5htp if it was really a coincidence or if that stuff really helped.
Avatar_m_tn If I fell back to sleep within 15 mins or so, I would be right back into REM sleep and dream again, only to be woken up again with erectile pain. Despite some beta blockers prescribed by the Doc to reduce the likelihood of erections, only time has really helped with this. I still get some mild discomfort (but less frequently - perhaps once a night), but its less painful each time.
Avatar_n_tn Their knowledge was limited and knew only what their Cialis, Levitra, and Viagra reps had taught them (a bit bias to say the least). I took the pills and generally had the same problem and began to grow really concerned that a solution may not exist me. Me, being the bulheaded "never take no for an answer" son-of-a-***** that I am, decided to take this a step further and fully explore my medical state.
