    hello,you have to ascertain the cause of the low libido first before thinking of the solution to this.causes can be due to smoking,alcoholism,diabetes,drugs etc.what other complaints do you have?do you normally have an erection?

    I don't smoke, I don't drink, no diabetes but I'm hypertensive and I use Moduretic, nifedipine

    alright.moduretic contains amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide.the later can cause erectile dysfunction,low libido,ejculatory problems etc.for how long have you been on it and when did the problems you are experiencing start?when were you diagnosed to be hypertensive and by who?who prescribed you drugs?

    I have been using the drugs 6 months ago after being told by a doctor in my workplace that I'm hypertensive, it's not self medication and since then I have controlled my bp

    alright good.can you see the doctor and ask him for another option asides the moduretic?there are many other antihypertensives you can choose from.note that all drugs have side effects, some people may come down with side effects while others may not.some have used moduretic without side effects,it just means you have to change it in your own case.if your libido improves,then we can say the drug most likely caused the problem. if it's the cause,your libido will become normal after the drug is stopped.

    but you can still prescribe some drugs for me to improve my sex life while doing that, my wife is complaining already, save my marriage
    Dr. Femi O answered:

    no,it doesnt work like that.we don't prescribe sex enhancing drugs because of their potential side effects.we have had people who died from it due to elevated blood pressure, now you are hypertensive, that makes it worse.
