Hi,

Yes. Atenolol decreases libido. It's better that you start alternative medicine. It is best to use tablet Cilnidipine (10mg) with Telmisartan (40mg) combination for your age.

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

Regards,
Dr. Diwashish Biswas, Internal Medicine Specialist
