I recently asked my doctor for a Viagra prescription and he responded that he would rather not as very new research was showing previously unknown side effects. He claimed that an increasing number of men were experiences temporary and, in some cases, permanent blindness and that these conditions have been linked directly to the ingesting of Viagra. He didn't refuse just said he would rather not. I didn't push. Does anybody around here know anything about this?????

Okay, the FDA recently added new labeling to all three PDE5 Inhibitors...regarding the blindness issue. Yes blindness has occured in some patients taking Viagra, Levitra & Cialas, but if you look at all the data and the co-morbities of these patients, you would quickly see that they were not your average run of the mill men. Most, but not all of these patients had underlying anatomic or vascualr risk factors for development of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) including, but not limited to diabetes, hypertension, CAD and a few other things.

With that being said, look on the website for each of the three ED drugs and you can find their current package inserts and it can give you some idea of this.

Don't want to confuse you, just give you a place where you can get information directly from the drugs website.

RE: What did you say?

 

OK, just for you Jack.

 

One of my favorite moments in porn doesn't involve any performers at all. The standard FBI warnings and disclaimers (don't show this to minors) etc., ended with "While it is not true that masturbation makes you go blind, we recommend you stop when you feel you need glasses."

 

(It's a Jeff Stryker video, of all the damn things. Who knew he had a sense of humor?)

The link has not been proven (or disproven). These forms of visual loss are fairly common, and Viagra use in "vasculopaths" is very common. The fact that the sun comes up every morning after the rooster crows doesn't necessarily mean that the sun comes up because the rooter crows. At this point, it's just an association. But if patients are concerned, I do advise them that penile pumps, injections, or intra-urethral suppositories are alternatives.

Although I would hasten to add that PI lawyers have made billions if not trillions asserting otherwise, many cerebral palsy cases, breast implant cases, and the like being good examples.
