recommendations for using Viagra in patients with heart disease

A new report will give recommendations for using Viagra in patients with heart disease. It'll comefrom the American College of Cardiology...and the American Heart Assoc.

They will caution physicians about giving Viagra to patients with angina...congestive heart failurewith low blood pressure...and patients on multiple drugs for hypertension.

These patients are especially at risk for a serious drop in blood pressure...or a heart attack afterusing Viagra. They recommend letting 24 hours elapse before using nitrates to treat Viagra patients who get chest pain orhave a heart attack. This time allows enough of the drug to be eliminated by the body.
