Atenolol and Impotence
It is impossible for your healthcare provider to know whether you will develop any sexual side effects while taking atenolol. Also, if a person does develop sexual side effects, such as impotence, it is difficult to know whether these problems are caused by another condition or the atenolol itself.
However, you should make sure to talk with your healthcare provider if you are taking atenolol and impotence or other sexual side effects occur. There is treatment that he or she may be able to recommend, such as an erectile dysfunction medication. Depending on how severe your sexual side effects are, he or she may also recommend that you adjust your atenolol dosage or try another medicine.
