BackgroundImpaired erectile function in men is a component of the dysmetabolic syndrome of high blood pressure as well as a sequela of antihypertensive therapy. This prospective interventional study in men with uncontrolled hypertension (blood pressure ≥140/90 mm Hg) used a survey instrument to assay sexual dysfunction before and after therapy with losartan. MethodsWe evaluated the influence of a 12-week therapy with losartan in 82 hypertensive subjects with (n = 82) and without (n = 82) a… Expand
Effect of the angiotensin II antagonist valsartan on sexual function in hypertensive men
TLDR
The results of the open study suggest that the ARB valsartan improves sexual function in hypertensive males. Expand
Effect of antihypertensive treatment with valsartan or atenolol on sexual activity and plasma testosterone in hypertensive men
TLDR
It is suggested that atenolol induces a worsening of sexual activity and a reduction of testosterone, whereas valsartan does not worsenSexual activity and does not change testosterone levels. Expand
Losartan improves erectile dysfunction in diabetic patients: a clinical trial
TLDR
Losartan seems to be effective and well-tolerated in diabetic ED patients, especially for mild to moderate ones, and the combination therapy of losartan and tadalafil appeared to be more effective than monotherapy. Expand
Factors affecting the increased prevalence of erectile dysfunction in Greek hypertensive compared with normotensive subjects.
TLDR
The prevalence of erectile dysfunction is higher in patients with essential hypertension compared with normotensive subjects of similar demographic characteristics, whereas duration and severity of hypertension as well as antihypertension drugs affect erectile function of hypertensive patients. Expand
Effect of valsartan and atenolol on sexual behavior in hypertensive postmenopausal women.
TLDR
It is suggested that in postmenopausal, sexually active hypertensive women, valsartan treatment improved sexual function at least in some respects, whereas atenolol worsened it. Expand
Impact of anti-hypertensive therapy in the sexual health of men and women: an analysis from the SPRINT trial.
TLDR
Findings may help reassuring patients about the sexual safety of intensive anti-HT therapy, therefore, potentially improving adherence to intensive therapy strategy. Expand
Evaluation and Management of Erectile Dysfunction in the Hypertensive Patient
TLDR
It is found that the clinician should opt to use an angiotensin-receptor blocker followed by an angiotsin-converting enzyme inhibitor or calcium channel blocker for the treatment of hypertension in patients with erectile dysfunction. Expand
Combined Antihypertensive Therapy and Sexual Dysfunction: Terra Incognita
TLDR
High blood pressure and antihypertensive therapy seem to be associated with erectile dysfunction, and several lines of evidence point towards a direct impact of high blood pressure on erectile function through structural and functional alterations in the penile vasculature. Expand
Erectile dysfunction in the cardiac patient: how common and should we treat?
TLDR
ED is extremely common in men with chronic coronary artery disease (affecting approximately 75%) yet most cardiologists do not ask about it, and there is mixed information on whether treating the risk factors will treat the ED. Expand
Effect of irbesartan on erectile function in patients with hypertension and metabolic syndrome
TLDR
Treatment with irbesartan alone, as well as in combination with hydrochlorothiazide is associated with an improvement of sexual desire, frequency of sexual contacts and erectile function in hypertensive patients with the metabolic syndrome, suggesting a beneficial role of angiotensin receptor antagonists in the treatment of metabolic syndrome and ED.

Sexual sequelae of antihypertensive drugs: Treatment effects on self-report and physiological measures in middle-aged male hypertensives
TLDR
Results indicated a lack of consistent drug effects on measures of sexual response, although more frequent sexual and nonsexual side effects were observed with methyldopa and propranolol, and did not support the hypothesis that sexually dysfunctional males are at greater risk for adverse sexual sequelae when treated with centrally active agents or diuretics.

TLDR

TLDR
It seems probable that use of certain classes of blood pressure-lowering agents, notably non-cardioselective beta blockers such as propranolol, thiazide diuretics such as chlorthalidone and centrally-acting adrenergic agonists, is associated with an increased risk of sexual dysfunction. Expand
