Can Beta Nicardia Atenolol with Nifedipine and Simcard cause erectile dysfunction?

I am 68 years old, 1.65 m tall weighing 65 kg. and take daily Beta-Nicardia atenolol 50 mg nifedipine 20 mg for high blood and Simcard 10 mg for high cholesterol. I have difficulty in maintaining an erection. Have read on Internet that Tong Kat Ali is safe as a stimulant to help maintain an erection. Would appreciate to receive your advice whether it is safe to take this stimulant and if there is any adverse reaction with the medicine I am taking. Thank you b

Hi,

Tong Kat Ali is a flowering plant, which is said to be having testosterone like properties, thus resulting its positive effect on male infertility and hence, increases the libido, helps in relieving the symptoms of erectile dysfunction as well as symptoms of ejaculatory disorder. However, these beneficial effects have not been proved by conclusive studies.

Also, no known side effect has been evident by this drug. The drugs which you are already taking, out of these atenolol is definitely known as to be having a negative effect on male sexuality, particularly causing loss of libido & erectile dysfunction.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
