ED after Heart Attack

whatsnext7 posted:
I had a heart attach 3 months ago.
My doctor has put me on an additonal blood pressure medication as well as doubling the dose of the one I was on.
Right after my heart attach I had no problem having an erection but now can maybe only get semi erect.I understand many beta blockers can cause ED
My question is should I ask to have my medications changed or is there other ways to be able to have erections again. If it's the medication and they are changed how long does it take to reverse the disfunction and be able to have erertions normally again

You can discuss changing medications with your physician...or they might consider prescribing an ED medication.

If it's the medication and it's changed to one without these side effects you should see a reversal of this issue fairly quickly.

Yes, yes, yes. Corgard (Nadalol) is a culprit.
