Think any of these medicines is causing you erectile dysfunction?

For example, the type antihypertensive ACE inhibitors such as Enalapril tend to cause fewer problems in terms of erectile dysfunction than other drugs described SSRI antidepressants. Similarly, Statins for the treatment of high cholesterol are less likely to cause erection problems than Fibrates.
