@phillipdobrien, I added your question to the Men's Health group as per @danab's suggestion as well as here in the Heart Health group.

According one article:
"It’s thought that by blocking these receptors, beta-blockers may interfere with the part of your nervous system responsible for causing an erection. However, according to the results reported in one study in the European Heart Journal, ED associated with beta-blocker use was not common."

I might suggest that being amorous and intimate can be many things and do not necessarily need to include intercourse. The demands of caring for a partner with dementia can also be a contributor, not to mention the stress of life during a pandemic. Are you taking any other medications that may be contributing to ED?

I was put on Eliquis (A-Fib) two weeks ago & I have been on a statin for 15 years or so. Just an FYI; since my wife started doing Sudoku 3 plus years ago (4-6 hours/day) her dementia has slowed dramatically. I saw a Mayo study that suggested dementia cannot be reversed after 70 years of age but I believe Sudoku has really changed/extended life here. Thanks again for your reply.
