Patient : My husband began taking Diovan. Appx 6 weeks later, for the first time in our 7 years of sexual activity. He was having difficulty getting erect and or staying erect. After about a week of the dysfunction, the only thing I could think of that changed. Was his new medication. He went to his doctor who has now switched his medication to Tekturna. It has been 2 weeks... And he is still having difficulty. If it is the "Diovan" how long will it take to completely be out of his system and we can go back to our happy sex life?
