    as the title says anyone hear take lisinoprol and utilize viagra? 6 months ago at age 57 I had to start taking lisinopril for my high bp. after 6 weeks the doc upped my dosabe to 20mg a day + HCT. my wife and I are not fucking daily, but once/twice a week is nice. I would like it more often and want to hire a maid named Lolita. ha ha!

    as the months go by, my erection qualilty has gone down hill. at first, the wife would just BJ me to full erection, but as time goes along, that is just not getting it done. I am in good shape, not overweight, cholesterol has been checked and is good. I exercise daily. do kegels. utilize a pump, but the erection doesn't last. so I am thinking viagra or similiar. I go back to the doc in 2 weeks, and will ask him about getting a prescip for "woody" pills. TIA

    if i may ask, how much vitamin c and protein do you get on a daily basis. i have read that high bp and diabetes are detrimental for getting and maintaining erections.

    I would get off the HCT, try atenolol. Keep the lisinopril. You will stop pissing so much. Try ciallis for less headaches. I have HBP, but nothing else. So that works for me. (of course I am not a doctor, so check with him/her)

    Viagra is for Rx sales and did nothing for me. Makes sex like stuffing a marshmellow in a piggy bank. Get the idea?

    Im on Lisinopril w/htcz. The htcz portion of that concoction is what is giving you the ED. My doctor has me on Levitra 20mg. Makes me hard as I should be and hell if I cant fuck and fuck and fuck and fuck some more before it wears out.
    Around $17 a pill though and my BlueCross policy wont cover it.

    When I was on lisinopril, my side effects were dry cough, diarrhea, and decreased sex drive, although I had no problem getting hard if I tried. However, impotence is a side effect in 1.0-1.6% of those taking lisinopril (without or with HCTZ) compared to 0.0% on placebo. My doctor and I found better treatment with either metoprolol succinate (Toprol XL) or atenolol (Tenormin). I selected the atenolol because it's on most $4/$10 pharmacy plans.

    I would suggest telling your doctor about the impotence and asking for an alternative Rx like metoprolol or atenolol. FYI, lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor, which works by blocking the enzyme that causes your blood vessels to constrict. Metoprolol and atenolol are beta blockers, which work by reducing heart rate and force of contraction during physical exertion. For a guy like you, who likes to fuck regularly, a beta blocker might be a better option.

    I am on 30 mg of Lisinopril daily. I am 58 yo, and always had problems with erections. My doctor gave me Viagra, which does work, BUT the extreme headaches I get make it not worth it for me. I tried Cialis, and while the headaches are less, and the erections strong, they dont last as long. I chalk it up to aging. Medication does take its toll of the body and its functioning. I am a gay man, and with that said, erections are probably MORE important than if i were str8 and married, since I only have 1 chance to make that good FIRST impression.

    thanks for the input, guys.

    to answer a few questions, I take a mens generic "one a day" vitamin daily, plus I normally drink some fruit juice and eat a banana daily.I think I'm good on gettin my "C". I was tested for diabetes and results were negative.

    I don't eat fast food, or fried food on regular basis. about every 2 weeks or so, we'll go out and I will have fried chicken, or fried fish, usually catfish, or a tenderloin. I watch my salt intake and virtually do not use a salt shaker. there is enough salt in the food we buy already. I use pepper and Mrs Dash for seasoning. I think my diet is pretty good.

    I exercise daily, and ride my bicycle about 40 minutes every day, weather permitting, and for shitty days, I got a stationery bike in the basement.

    I do smoke. BUT I retired and my stress level dropped way down when I did, even when I worked I only smoked about a 1/2 pack a day. I smoke about 4-5 cigs a day on average. many days it is 3 cigs. they are dessert to breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I stopped drinking coffee when I retired, and cut my soda(cola) down to one a day. I do go out with some friends 2-3 nites a week for 4 hours at a time and drink some beer, and smoke more when I do this. Last Sunday, I had one cig, that was after dinner.

    I still on occasion get a morning wood or a "pee-on" and it is quite hard. in fact, that's what I fucked my wife with the last time we had sex. she nudged me one morning about 6am and whispered "you're hard" as she grabbed my cock, got on top and rode me. we have been together for 33 years and she has been thru menopause. she has been a good wife, and when we were younger we would have sex an average of 3 times a day. her sex drive went into high gear once she met and fucked me by her own admission. we have been faithful to each other, even thru severe temptation. I typically have 3-6 offers a year for sex from other ladies even at my age. her sex drive is almost nil at times, but she stills needs a good stiff cock once in awhile, and knows I need pussy. I am not large but not small. I am 7.25" x 6.25". slender, tall, 205 lbs, 6'6". I have never been impotent in my life until now, not one single time.

    "rubber chicken" is a good description. I told her I felt like I was trying to shove rope in hole. and with my girth, I have to maintain a real stiff cock just to get it in.

    I have acquired 2 50mg tabs of Viagra from a friend. we have known each other for a long time(HS) and he told me he started taking Viagra when he dated this nympho who is 20 yrs younger than he is, just to keep up with her. He said he used to take 1/2 but now, about 5 yrs have gone by, he takes the whole thing. so would I be safe to take the whole 50 mg???

    I hate getting older. oh, it's better than the alternative, but life was so much easier when younger. getting a massive boner at will or on a whim, making love was something I took for granted, especially once I met the right lady and you dig the shit out of each other, and you can't seem to get enough of each other. maybe someday they will invent a pill that just turns the clock back.

    I take 40 mg of Lisinopril and 25 mg of Metoprolol twice a day. Luckily, all the plumbing works fine.......My main side effect is feeling like I'm going to pass out every time I stand up. We switched my Lisinopril from the morning to taking it right before bed to minimize the "lightheadedness" that it gives me.

    "about 5 yrs have gone by, he takes the whole thing. so would I be safe to take the whole 50 mg???"

    I even cut them in quarters and take about 25mg - give that a shot first time around and you can just slip another 25mg dose if it doesn't work well.

    Can't seem to let go of this discussion. I'm 72, my wife died in June, 08 after 50 years of a good marriage. Good to the extent of our health problems etc. The wife had a bi-polar illness before her death, for 39 years. Our life was continual Rx trips, psych visits and in-patient hosp stays. Her Rx regimen was quite intense and sexually problematic. She almost was "orgasmic-less" due to the meds, for short intervals.

    Then I had my meds, that contributed to my rubber dick and the related ED that was a pain in the butt on a good day. Sometimes I wanted to tell her no Poke 'em, smoke 'em. Of course, that was off limits.

    The result of meds and their intervention is a hell of a lot worse than many believe or expect. I take anti-anxiety meds, which may contribute to my ED, which I can do without. I'd give almost anything for a powerful ejaculation and orgasmic "explosion"...

    After 1 1/2 years of a rubber pecker, you get frantic for some kind of sexual release, that would cause something nearing an earthquake. Not trying to spread doom and gloom, but would like some suggestions. Remedies or just the dirty truth.

    Any advise, except trading my dick in for a refurbished one!

    Even If it were possible I don't think I would trade my cock in for a refurbished one.

    Injection therapy, which may be the answer for a few on this thread. The basic injection is single-mix Caverject, which is EXTREMELY effective. If that didn't work, then there's bi-mix, tri-mix and quad-mix, which can be prescribed by urologists. Caverject in Australia is prescribed by general practitioners. I have minor spinal column nerve damage, and I have been using Caverject for many years with great effect. It takes about 5 to 15 minutes to work, and stays hard for about an hour or so. My wife likes it, because we can go two rounds on the one injection.

    Do not worry about self injecting, as the syringe goes into the base of the penis where there are very few nerves and little sensation. Self-injection is generally less painful that having someone (like a doctor) administer an injection, because you can stop and change the site if you nick a blood vessel and get a stab of pain. Injection is done slowly and steadily.

    I also have secondary diabetes from the illness that gave me the nerve damage, so I inject myself with insulin 5 times a day. I don't have any sympathy for anyone who sacrifices their sex lives on the basis of being squeamish about self-injecting. So go to your doctor, get a prescription for Caverject along with instructions on how to inject, and then buy some and use it.

    well, I went to the doc yesterday, Bp is lower, I fasted because they usually want blood for tests right after the apptmnt, and I did not take my meds either. shit, no one tells you what to do, and I have been relatively healthy most of my life, how do I know what I am supposed to do, not do?. so I was supposed to take my meds so they could get my real BP on meds. so I'm to check bp at home and when I run out of pills, about 1 month, call in with my bp results. they are probably going to bump the HCT to 20 from 12.5, he said. I also told the doc, for the first time in my life, my cock, does not stand up. He said that's not the medicine doing that, and I said, well, I never had this problem before I started taking this stuff. so they gave me 4 50mg Viagra to try, and then call and they will give me a prescriptionf for 50 or 100mg. the two Viagra my friend gave me were generic Viagra, 100mg each. I believe they came from the India company, alldaychemist. I cut one in 1/2 with a razor blade, took that half, and got a tingling in my balls in about 15 minutes, not knowing what to expect or how long it takes to kick in, I waited too long, and then took the other 1/2 half about an hour later. got nothing out of it. I was quite discouraged. I took it all alone, the wife was gone. I just planned on rubbin' one out. the second pill I took( a couple days later) after I told the wife about the first experience, she was in downer mood, and only agreed to jack me it I got a boner. well, we ate, and a little while later I took the pill, no ball tingling, no nothing, but after about a 45 minutes, I got a chub, so she started playing with my cock and I got rock hard, and promptly blew my load. and went back to a large flaccid state. she continued to massage and stroke me for another 1/2 hour and it was apparent I wasn't getting hard again. the wife wasn't very romantic and not very positive. the funny part was the next night I was out on my own, having a few beers with the guys, and started talking to this gal, she started flirting with me and I could almost feel myself going full hard. I think part of problem is physical, and part of it is mental, because my wife is so negative. she actually thought if I took Viagra I would be totally hard for 1-2 hours no matter if I came once or 4 times. I knew that would not happen. anyway, the next time, I am gonna take a 50 mg authentic Viagra on an empty stomach. I did get the "blue" light thing, and headache from the 1st two times, and also got an upset stomach later on the second occasion.
