User avatar Hello,
First I would recommend you discuss it with your prescribing physician. He/she might be able to switch you to a medication that has fewer sexual side effects, yet still lowers the blood pressure. If not, they could advise you about the feasibility of Viagra (or Levitra or Cialis).

Best wishes.
