Yes Erection problem and Impotence may happen after long term medication of Aten(Tenolol). You better change it after consulting a physician,Check for Blood Sugar if you have Diabetes Mellitus which may also cause the same . Regarding Headache, first you need to control BP to a satisfactory level 140-130 systolic and 90-80 diastolic. If it persists have Eye Check up for any refractive error.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thaanks for calling H.C.M.F.
You are aged 34 years, got hypertension. You have got head ache, and erectile dysfunction.
Head ache could be due to hypertension or the aten 50 itself.
Erectyle dysfunction could be due to anxiety of your nature or may be due to the anxiety due to hypertension. As it is purely a psychological problem the reason must be either of these only. If it is from the begening that is before diagnosis of the hypertension the reason might be some thing else.
I advise you to consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment.
Wish you a complete recovery.
Best regards.
