Brief Answer:
Coreg -CR may be the culprit

Detailed Answer:
Good day,

Noted your concern. Most blood pressure medications has some amount of side effect in the form of reduced erection. But no any association with ejaculation.

Coreg-CR ( Carvedilol) has more issues in this regard compared to Lisinopril.

If you have no heart issues, and if you are able to climb 2 flights of stairs with out issues, then you may use Viagra or Cialis after consulting your doctor. You must also check with your doctor about changing Coreg-CR
