BP Patient. Taking Nebistar 2.5. I Am Having Sexual Problem. Risk Of Being Impotent?
Thanks for your query.
Most of the Antihypertensive medications belonging to the class of the drugs like Nebivolol do have some effect on the sexual desire and the erection.Specially atenolol is known to cause such side effect more when compared to other drugs in the class.
Though rare Nebivolol can be considered the culprit here.There are chances of it being the cause for your low sex drive.
Do get the medications revised from your treating doctor and get yourself placed on a better substitute.
Flupentixol is not known to cause any such effects on the sex performance, hence I do not doubts its efficacy.
Hope I answered your query.
Wish you good health.
Thanks for writing back.
Yes, the urologist is right in saying that mental stress do cause some problems in sexual performance.
I also agree that the dosage is very low to cause such a side effect but it can't be completely denied.You can continue the medications and practice mind relaxation exercises like Yoga and meditation.If you see no improvement then there would be need for the medication to be revised.
No , Nebistar do not have effect on sleep cycle or psychological performance.
It could be your belief about the medication which has led you to sleep with nebistar.
Do practice mind relaxation exercises like yoga and meditation , they do help to over come such stress and mental susceptibility.
There would be no problem in you continuing only on the flupentixol , but do observe your blood pressure readings every week.
Wish you speedy recovery.
