Avatar n tn In conclusion the occurrence of erectile dysfunction on beta-blockers is low, much lower than commonly thought. The results of the present study suggest that both patient’s and doctor’s expectations on the risk of experiencing erectile dysfunction may influence the occurrence of this bothersome side-effect.
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 f tn I have some erectile dysfunction due to having to be on beta blockers. I've been prescribed Cialis 5mg once a day, but haven't gotten up the courage to take one yet. Kind of afraid to be honest. 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.
Avatar f tn I'm 33, slim, in decent health, not overweight at all, for about the past year or so, I've been experiencing some erectile dysfunction. Not entirely, but basically what happens is I can get an erection if I'm turned on or if it's been a while since I last ejaculated, but I have trouble maintaining the erection during sex. I notice that it might start out fine but then about half way in I'll get somewhat soft or even totally soft then get hard, and back again.
Avatar f tn I used the term benign because I've had numerous echos and ekg's and chest x-rays and they all said my heart is structurally normal. I've just been prone to bouts of tachycardia as long as I can recall, since my late 20s. I'd like to wean off Metoprolol because it does affect my sex drive and being still young that's a concern for me. But is there a good alternative for it that could control the tachycardia bouts without the erectile dysfunction?

Avatar m tn Only one real issue with the drugs, which is erectile dysfunction, really weird, but apprantly normal... mind you it's been getting better this last few days off the metoprolol... so I suppose time will tell. Onwards and upwards I say...!!! I'm looking forward to holding my wieght, eating healthy... and thanking my lucky stars !
Avatar n tn Doctor initially suggested Concor ( Bisoprolol ) but my Father who happens to be a surgeon ( urologist ) refused it due to many side effects and erectile dysfunction symptoms. I'm on Nebilet ( 5mg/day ) that doctor said that it should be very effective but it's doing literally nothing. Also my blood pressure goes up to 160/100 when I stand up to take it at the check-up room.
Avatar n tn Today I panicked and called the paramedics who came and did a 12 lead and they said normal sinus with one ectopic and so I didn't go back to the ER. I had a normal echo 3 years ago. I already don't eat caffeine or sugar. Please reassure or sympathize with me. I'm going insane and have no idea what's causing this out of the blue. Why would they suddenly increase for no reason whatsoever?
