While most people do not experience sexual side effects as a result of taking heart medications, some do experiences changes in sexual desire, sexual performance, or overall energy level after a heart event or procedure or as a result of their medications. Knowing more about how medications may affect you can help you begin discussions about your sexual activity with your partner and your doctor.
Keep in mind that many medications you take are keeping you alive and your heart working as well as it can. Even if these medications may be impacting your sex life, it is important NEVER to stop or change any of your medications without first talking to the doctor who prescribed the medication. Certain medication changes may be fatal.
