Had Transient Ischemic Attack - 3 events in a half hour at a moment of likely high blood pressure. Extensive tests - MRI, ultrasounds, etc - show no heart or artery problems. Blood pressure has been borderline high for years. Lately may have been spiking higher. Adverse reaction to ACE (persistent cough). Trying to find BP drug least likely to cause diminished libido and still reduce blood pressure.
I am unable to tolerate many antihypertensive drugs and I have found that the combination of the beta blocker Atenolol and diuretic Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) work well for me. I am not sure what kind of sexual side effects this would give you. Everyone is different though. This sounds like a very good question to ask your healthcare provider.
