Yes chronic alcohol consumption can cause high blood pressure as well as erection problem.

Are you taking any medication to control blood pressure?

Expert:  Dr Basu replied 14 days ago.

You should consider alcohol detox first to be free of alcohol.

Please also get your blood pressure treated with medication from a local doctor.

Please follow low sodium diet.

Please include lots of fresh fruits, vegetables in your diet.

Lastly, you can get prescription medication to address erection problem.

Sildenafil 25-50 mg before sexual performance can be tried safely.
