Viagra Has Unwanted Side-Effects
For one, Viagra does have some side-effects that make it potentially unsafe. Viagra reduces blood pressure. For some patients, this may be beneficial, but for other patients, long-term use can depress the function of the heart and increase the risk of heart attack. There are a variety of cases in which patients have died during or after sexual activity, which has been linked to their use of ED Treatments.
Viagra is explicitly designed to meet a specific set of needs concerning the sexual function and does so by manipulating the way that the cardiovascular system functions. As a result, this affects the role of the Cardiovascular system in potentially unusual ways.
Side-Effects of Viagra
You should be aware of the dangers of Viagra before even considering the treatment. Researchers in California performed an extensive study of health issues that occurred to patients that were taking Viagra with prescriptions. This study analyzed nearly 1500 patients that experienced Viagra side-effects. Of these patients, over 500 died as a result.
Because Viagra alters the function of the cardiovascular system, most of the deaths are the result of these physiological changes in the heart. Most of the patients that died from Viagra experienced issues in the same way. They took fifty milligrams of Viagra and began to experience complications after four to five hours of receiving their dose. These deaths were not older patients. Well over half of the patients that died were under sixty-five and also showed no signs of heart risk before their health event.
Other drugs with similar properties also lead to these issues. Patients that take nitrates for heart issues, angina, and chest pain also have an increased risk of life-threatening cardiovascular consequences. Because Viagra works by encouraging the body to release nitric acid, it can lead to the same issues. Amyl nitrate is often abused because it rapidly causes vasodilation, in a manner not unlike Viagra. It causes blood pressure to drop quickly and also gives a rush of lightheadedness. As such, there is plenty of evidence that Viagra is a problematic medication for many patients.
