See Health Conditions that the Viagra(blue pill) manages apart from Erectile Dysfunction

Viagra is a brand-name version of the generic drug sildenafil. It’s a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor. PDE5 is an enzyme that regulates certain chemicals in your blood, but as a result can make it harder for you to get and keep an erection.

Viagra is used to treat erectile dysfunction (E.D). While it helps you temporarily maintain an erection so you can have sex, it doesn’t cure ED. It doesn’t affect sexual desire either. You still need mental or physical stimulation to get an erection

Past studies have suggested Viagra and other PDE5 inhibitors may have benefits for heart failure by decreasing pulmonary artery resistance and providing cardio-protective effects in settings with low blood flow, according to Kociol. “They also improve exercise tolerance in patients with heart failure,” he said.

The following are conditions that Viagra manages:

Prostate cancer

Viagra is used to help treat prostate cancer when used in combination with another cancer drug

Pulmonary hypertension

Viagra is now marketed under the name Revatio for this uncommon but serious disorder of high pressure in the blood vessels leading to the lungs.

Mountain sickness

Viagra can reduce pulmonary artery pressure at high altitude and improve the ability to exercise in low oxygen conditions.

Raynaud’s phenomenon

In affected individuals, exposure to the cold triggers spasm of the small arteries that supply blood to the fingers, toes, or both, which become pale, cold, and painful. Both Viagra and Levitra have been helpful in clinical trials.

Heart disease

Studies suggest Viagra might help patients with congestive heart failure or diastolic dysfunction.
