Viagra safe to use while on blood pressure meds

A new study shows men that are taking blood pressure medications can take Viagra.  There was some concern that Viagra and blood pressure medications would combine for adverse side effects, however, a new study shows Viagra did not interfere and did help men achieve an erection.

The study
The 12-week, study involved 562 men taking two or more blood pressure drugs. The first six weeks of double-blind treatment was followed by an additional six weeks of open-label treatment with Viagra. After six weeks, Viagra significantly improved erections for 71 percent of the men versus 18 percent taking placebo.

“This study showed that Viagra is both well-tolerated and effective when used in conjunction with high blood pressure medications which is good news for men who are often forced to choose between treating their hypertension and staying sexually active,” said Dr. Thomas G. Pickering of the Zena and Michael A. Weiner Cardiovascular Institute, Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.

While there were some side effects including headache, facial flushing, indigestion, dizziness, nasal congestion and abnormal vision, only a small group of men experienced them.

“For many men, loss of erections is often an underlying symptom signaling that there may be another significant health issue such as hypertension,” said Dr. Pickering.

About Viagra
This blockbuster drug hit the market in 1998.  The drug was discovered accidentally.  Pfizer was testing the drug to treat depression and found one of the side effects was an increase in sexual desire and erections in men.  After getting approval from the FDA, Pfizer did a media blitz, advertising the drug on every kind of media available.  The result is Viagra has become a household name.  The drug has helped millions of men battle erection issues and has pulled in billions of dollars for the pharmaceutical company.

Viagra is available through eDrugstore.com, a safe and secure online pharmacy.
