Hi,K vohra,
Thanks for query

but in reference of Lexi-Comp,full drug information ,the Adverse Reactions Significant was Male sexual dysfunction(erectile dysfunction) (1% to 2%) of the studied population.
before putting the blame of saying amlopress as the reason for ED.

you have to rule out the other causes of erectile dysfunction

but ideally i would say that u can change amlodpine to other anti hypertensives and see.
thank you

Hi,K vohra,
Thanks for query,
Amlopres is calcium channel blocker and has no effect in erection.
Other drug is beta blocker which causes erectile dysfunction.
So I think there is no problem in taking amlopres at.
ok and bye.
