Side Effects
it did a good job lowering my b.p.

Additional Thoughts
i have been taking vasotech for years and for years i have been experiencing losing my erection during the sex acts and i never thought until now that it just might be the vasotech. my dr. says maybe, but blows my concern off as if its not important. an enjoyable sex life is very important, my dr. seems to think its better to have lower b.p. than enjoyable sex.....whats the point in lowering your b.p. to live longer, if you cant enjoy the life you live? does anybody else experience E.D. on this drug, or am i just overeacting?
