Use of Viagra During Cardiovascular Diseases

      Comments Off on Use of Viagra During Cardiovascular Diseases

In men suffering from the cardiovascular diseases a risk of the development of the erectiledysfunction is higher than in general population of men because these conditions have the same factors of the risk, and some cardio-vascular remedies may cause erectile dysfunction. This complicates the treatment of the disease because drugs restoring the potency directly affect the blood circulation, and this may cause the load to the work of the cardiac muscle.

Viagra is one of the most popular drugs for the treatment of the male impotence, has a fast and strong action. A mechanism of its pharmacological action consists in the increase of the blood flow into penis as a result of which the man may gain and maintain erection. As a result of the dilation of the blood arteries the inflow of the blood is increased, and so the arterial pressure may be slightly lowered. In case of the chronic arterial hypotension this may cause faint or other symptoms of the excessively low blood pressure.

Moreover, the components of Viagra slightly increase the load to the cardiac muscle which needs to hasten the process of the blood flow. Men with the cardiovascular diseases may be caused tachycardia and pain in the chest. That is why, in most cases the presence of the chronic or acute disorders of the work of the cardiovascular system is a contraindication for the use of the drug.

Aged men older than 60 years belong to the high-risk group. At this age the heart works slower and additional loads may wear out the cardiovascular system. If the man is prohibited heavy physical loads for any reasons, the sexual intercourse may be contraindicated especially while taking Viagra.

Despite of this the conducted clinical studies of Sildenafil, an active component of Viagra from Canada, have proved that the use of this drug causes a considerable increase of the ability to gain and keep erection even during severe types of the heart disorders. The fact is of interest that Sildenafil has improved erection even in case of the inadequate control of glycemia and presence of several chronic complications of diabetes.

In spite of the fact that cardiovascular diseases directly affect the quality of the male erection Viagra may result in the firm improvement of the potency. However, most patients need adjustment of the dose in accordance with their clinical indications and general health condition.

Usually, men with diseases of the cardiovascular system are prescribed the dose of 25 mg. This is a minimal dose which does not bring a considerable increase of the load to the cardiac muscle and causes a gradual improvement of the blood flow and dilation of the arteries.

In case of the good tolerance of the medicine it is allowed to increase the dose up to 50 mg per day. This will cause a fast onset of the therapeutic effect and firmer erection. The increase of the dose must be done under the supervision of the qualified medical specialist who will be able to diagnose your condition while taking the increased dose.

If the man experiences pain in the chest or rapid heartbeat while taking Viagra, the dose should be reduced up to the minimal one. The optimal choice of the daily dose guarantees an effective and safe treatment. So, even the long-term use of Viagra during cardiovascular diseases may not cause serious tension of the cardiac muscle.

It is necessary to remember that it is prohibited to take Viagra with nitrates as wellas poppers. If there are no heart disorders, the combination of these components may cause a sudden reduction of the arterial pressure. This may lead to the lethal outcome. Only following all recommendations for the use and precautions prescribed by the doctor it is possible to achieve good results in the treatment of the erectile dysfunction.
