Heart medication not a restrictor to sex life assistance

Heart medication that interferes with erectile dysfunction medication can now be supplemented with other classes of heart drugs. Erectile dysfunction, or impotence, can be a sign of heart disease as well as a symptom of other diseases. Nitrates, heart medication that is used for angina causes dilation of the coronary arteries that allows increased blood flow to the heart, however, nitrates combined with erectile dysfunction medications causes serious decrease in blood pressure. Angina sufferers can safely withdraw their nitrate medications, which are purely used for symptoms of heart disease, if they normally use it less than once a month and can walk a certain distance without experiencing chest pain. A study was conducted that found an improved quality of life for men who withdrew from their nitrate medication under physician supervision and began anti-impotence drugs, i.e. Viagra, Levitra, Cialis.
