Coronary Artery Disease and Viagra

As male patients get older, the chance of developing coronary disease increases. The incidence of erectile dysfunction or impotence also increases with aging. Recently, a new medication called Viagra has become available to treat erectile dysfunction. Although effective, it should not be used with certain heart medications. Those of us who specialize in heart disease receive many questions regarding Viagra and sometimes questions on other treatment options for impotence from patients who shouldn't take Viagra. I have therefore asked my colleague, Dr. Chipriya B. Dhabuwala, who specializes in impotence and is a professor of urology at Wayne State University, to discuss Viagra as it relates to heart medication and to also discuss other treatment options available for erectile dysfunction.
