Is It Dangerous to Combine Taking of Viagra with Alcohol or Drugs?

Honestly speaking, sexual relationships of people are very often associated with taking alcohol. It’s neither good nor bad, it’s just a fact. There is no sense in delivering lectures and trying to convince people that a sex play under the influence of alcohol is not a very useful matter. In general, most of us are aware of possible risks and consequences. After all, these consequences in most cases are not fatal, at least as far as we are speaking of healthy men and women. But what if a man is taking a drug, which is not compatible with alcohol, such as Viagra? Does the risk of negative outcome increase for him?

As of today, there hadn’t been conducted any special clinical trials dedicated to this issue. So, nowadays there is no proved, convincing information, that simultaneous taking of Viagra and alcohol can result in the fatal outcome or other severe consequences. Nevertheless, it is worth consideration that ethanol is a strong central nervous system depressant. Moreover, alcohol has a negative effect on the erectile function in men. So, what’s the point in taking pills for the erection improving, while simultaneously inhibiting this function with alcohol?

As for narcotic substances, there also haven’t been any special clinical trials. However, there is every reason to believe that this combination is quite dangerous. For example, when Viagra has just appeared in the UK, it was enthusiastically greeted by young people in London, which is considered a “clubbing” center of the country. Young men started taking Viagra right during clubbing parties, combining it with ecstasy. The new cocktail even received the name – Sextasy. In short time a lot of men aged 20-25 applied to hospitals complaining chest ache. Moreover, several cases of real heart seizures were recorded. It is well known that angina is not typical for young people, so there are all the grounds to suggest that the reason for the heart problems was combining Viagra with drugs and alcohol.

Here it’s worth to recall that Sildenafil citrate was initially intended for heart diseases treatment. This drug influences the state of the entire cardiovascular system, stimulating blood circulation and have a vasodilating effect. When taken with alcohol or drugs, which provide an additional load on the heart, Viagra can have a negative health impact. Such a load is harmful even for healthy men, and if you have a problem with the heart, the risk doubles.

Nowadays the list of contraindications of Viagra includes alcohol. The producer is warning that alcohol reduces the effect of Sildenafil and can worsen side effects arising as a result of its taking. Though maybe nothing serious will happen to you if you take a pill of Viagra with a glass of wine, it’s better not to experiment. The consequences of an incorrect treatment are unpredictable. After all, Viagra was created for the improving of life quality rather than for experimenting with health and life.
