    Impotency can be a result of both high blood pressure medications as well as high blood pressure itself. In your case I would highly recommend trying some natural ways to lower your blood pressure and hopefully get you off the meds as well.

    Here are some herbal supplements that would defiantly be worth looking into: -Hawthorn -CoQ10 -Pomegranate -Garlic

    You should also look into a device called the Zona Plus. My Grandfather was able to use it to lower his blood pressure well into the normal range and he no longer suffers from the side effects of medications.

    In most instances of blood pressure related impotency, it is because arteries have stiffened (atherosclerosis) and since the arteries cannot expand and contract the way they should, it can certainly prevent prolonged blood flow to male sexual organs. All of the herbs I suggested as well as the Zona Plus promote improved artery health.

    Good Luck!

    look into a penis pump for now and work hard on getting your exercise level up, physical condition up and diet completely revised. Try not to \depend on drugs or supplements as much as lifestyle change.

    Erectile dysfunction is a side effect of some BP meds. Whether or not BP meds are causing your symptoms should be discussed with your physician.

    For your Impotency you might try TriMix-gel or you can get shots you give yourself. I know the shots work I am doing them and you will get an erection in about 8 minutes or less and can last for one hour or up to two hours.You have to have a doctor prescription to get this.

    Hi! I apologize for my delayed response- I did not realize you had asked me this question!
    The Zona Plus is a handheld isometric therapy device. We found out about it from a review Harvard did on the device, which was very positive.
    You can buy it online through the manufacturer's website at zona.com but they also sell through SkyMall and Amazon as well as a few others. I would buy it from the manufacturer since they did a good job of standing behind their money back trial.
    Good luck!
