Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am 51 years being treated for coronary ectasia and hypertension. I am taking the following medicines now. Tablet Clopilet 75 mg, Warf 2.5 mg and Nebicard H. Can I take Viagra for erectile dysfunction?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The drug Viagra (Sildenafil) can cause potential side effects alone and certainly in combination with the above drugs.

It can cause hypertension and even the heart attack also. So it is not safe in the asked context.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
