    around June 1st my doc switched me to Diovan HCT for my high BP. I was on lisinopril HCT for a year before that. anyway, I have noticed more nocturnal erections and morning wood after about a month. and my libido has increased. I was checking out the new Maxim mag, and got bone hard. hope this lasts.

    Don't blood pressure medications usually cause erection difficulties?

    well, that's what I thought, lisinopril added to my declining ability to get a hard on over a year ago. maybe, it's because I'm getting healthy. recent blood test showed all my numbers improved, not that they were high or bad before. or I wonder if I am reacting paradoxical to this new BP medicine, I know from a hospital stay when they gave me secanol to put me to sleep and I didn't go to sleep that I react diffferently to some meds that the norm.

    and I am horny mentally AND physically. hey, something turns me on and I get a reaction, a chub. last nite, I was at a crowded public event, a gal I know came up to me, and being flirty, she said ,"is that you.....? you look great as ever...tall, all tan, slim and fit(and as she was saying this I chubbed) and her eyes darted to crotch. "damn, you still got it, don't you?' she said.

    side effects of medications vary from person to person. that's why it's important to discuss them with your M.D.

    I was on Lisinopril for a while and felt so horrible from it that I didn't really care if I had ED or not. I'm on Diovan HCT now and it's working a lot better.

    baricza, I agree. lisinopril made me cough, not at first, but I gota bad cold back in Nov last year. got over the cold but never the cough until I stopped taking lisinopril. and the coughing attacks occurred at nite after sleeping for 2-3 hours. I hardly notice I'm taking Diovan. did your doc give you a manufacturer's pamplet, you can get Diovan for $7 a month til April 2011. it was gonna cost me $100 a month after insur for this stuff. and when you say "it's working a lot better" are you referring to your EQ???

    I had never experienced ED before being put on Lisinopril by my physician. I put up with the problem (with the aid of Viagra) for about a year, but finally insisted on discontinuing the Lisinopril and returning to using Avapro about 3 months ago. The ED has ended with the discontinuance of the Lisinopril.

    Overall it's working much better, I used to get in from work and didn't feel like doing anything at all

    the only down side to all of this is my SO is not into sex that much anymore, like hardly at all. I have a feeling I may be having more sex but with just myself. oh well.
