At the desperate stage

I'm at the point of being desperate with my ED. Besides having all the health problems against me, high bp, high cholesterol, stress and age (50). I'm willing to try just about anything to get my sex life back. I've taken meds for high bp for 25 years and up until about 2 years ago, never really payed attention to the side effects. Now I see one of the most negative side effects is the meds can cause ED, I have switched meds about four times now and I'm to the point where I'll stop taking them if it would help. My Dr just this week put me on Bystolic for high bp, he said the percentage of ED is extremely low and should help me out. I'm 50 years old and just got married in june and really enjoy a healthy sex life, but the meds causing ED is driving me out of my mind. Even Viagra and Cialis wont work all the time, can anyone help? Will the Bystolic help? Thanks for any help on this matter.

Hi Knite, so you want to be a king, no as they say once a king always a king, once a knite is enough.
Ok so why so long with high bp, are you over weight, drink to much, dont do enough exercise, dont eat enough fruit and veg, smoke to much, eat to much salt, eat to much fast foods and junk foods, these last two are killers to high in salt and sugars, and as youve found out bp drugs are sex kilers, so when you take ED drugs they are fighting against them, so not good, so some how you need to get your bp down a natural way, have you looked at this, relaxation classe's for your stress or yoga, for your high colesterol are you on statins.
Stress is a sex killer and well known for it, you need to find a way to get that down, just how much are why are you so tressed, if its work then deligate, unless your the boss, but then still deligate.
High colestrol is something we are responable for most of the time unless its hereditary, as they say we are what we eat, so do you think this is you, smoking drinking and eating all the wrong things again do you think this is you.
Then if you want a good sex life you must turn yourself around, exercise, get out walking and swimming, quite smoking and drinking, start the relaxation classe's and yoga, listen to soft relaxing music, beleave it or not get a fish tank, and sit and watch them, it has they most calming effect on you.
Good Luck

Hi, thanks for responding. To answer your questions, I have never smoked, am only a light social drinker, not real big on fast food, my wife is an excellent cook. I'm sure I could use a little more exercise, Iused to be a weight lifter so even though the scale would say I'm overweight, I'm really just built like a football player and could lose 30 pounds. The stress part is pretty high, besides alot of family stress I'm a city cop so that adds to it. I've really taken a "life is too short to sweat it" attitude in order to decrease the stress and have just started using the treadmill again. I'm going to give it 110% to get back to the way it used to be, so any and all advise is appreciated.

Hi Knite, many thanks,but the tread mill will be a great way to lose some ponds, but to ease your stress you need relaxation to get your stress down, so yoga would give you that, meditation which is a part of yoga would also help your stress and these are natural ways, if you can get your stress down then your bp should come down as well.
Just a thought at 50 can you get retirement, proberly not a good time but find some work in a less stressful job, at the end, its your life you should be thinking of, then you can get back to having some good sex.
But you still need to get your colestrol down as well, i'll try and find some things that may help, but this is still down to what you eat.
Good Luck

Hi Knite, Look I did have an idea these two might help, its cayenne and good old garlic, the thing is taken these the way I do, may just upset your partner driving around the city in a car, anyway Ive sorted out some info that you will find in a message, so see if this helps.
Good Luck
