Impotence appears to be a common side effect of many blood pressure drugs, including spironolactone. Impotence that is caused by spironolactone is most likely due to the drug's effects on male hormones (the diuretic may decrease male hormone levels or block androgen receptors). If you are taking spironolactone and impotence becomes a problem, talk to your healthcare provider so he/she can recommend treatment.
