Medication for hypertension does have side-effects which may take time to get used to and others which may need careful monitoring (electrolyte disturbances). It is unlikely that your husband's decreased libido and erectile dysfunction would be as a result of the medication however I would discuss this with his GP to be sure. Erectile dysfunction may occur because of a number of reasons whih may be physiological but may also be due to psychological causes. The loss of his father so recently from an illness which he now has been diagnosed as having can cause a lot of anxiety. Please discuss this with your family practioner.
