Sexual side effects of antihypertensive drugs. Treatment strategies and strictures


Although not all sexual dysfunctions in patients receiving an antihypertensive medication are attributable to the drug, many are. The author advocates accepting a patient's report of such dysfunction without challenge, and assuming, at least initially, that the drug is at fault. He has found that systematic modification of the drug regimen eliminates the side effect or reduces its severity in most cases.
