Patient :I am on Ramipril, Bisoprolol and aspirin, to help heart muscle recover after heart attack. Since taking these pills i have nearly completely lost libido, i am only 23 so this sucks! Can you help??
Thanks for the query to ATD for opinion,
As you have already suffered a heart attack at the age of 23, so you have to continue these drugs for maintenance of adequate blood flow and recovery of heart's ejection fraction and prevention of future such episode. Ramipril and bisoprolol do have a known side effect of decreasing libido, but it can't be stopped at present as decided by your physician.
So this would have to be continued. The side effect can be reduced only by decreasing the dosage, but it is not recommended to do so without the consent of your cardiologist.
I hope I have answered your query in detail,
Wishing you good health,
