My elder brother is having high BP too. I have heard from my elder brother that his doctor told that certain medicines that are given to control blood pressure do result in loss of libido.

sex and high bp are two different things, it is not that a person with high Bp should not have sex. there is a point to be noted that the bp medicines reduces the libido

it is both the hypertension and the drug used to control is causing this problem. you consult your doc to know what are the ways to increase libido.

Hello, my name is Dianne. I have suffered from hypertension for over 6 years. Several medications did not work. My right kidney was removed in November of last year. My bp came down. I am now on only 200 mg of labatalol 2 times daily. I has been increasing. About two weeks ago I experienced and was treated for bronchitis with Z-pack then started Cipro three days ago. However, I am extremely out of breathe now and have muscle pain from my upper neck to my lower back. It feels as though I am bruised to the point I cant even wear a bra. I have tightness in my chest just to the left side. I also feel very tired and have been unable to work because of this and have gained 6 pounds in just a weeks time. Could this possibly be from my kidney. The last test showed 74% function of the remaining kidney. That was in January, It took two er visits with the chest pain for them to say it was bronchitis.
