In the evening bedtime i am taking lipitor 20mg, beta blocker 25mg,ezedoc 10mg. Also I take fish oil capsule and garlic pearl capsule twice a day. I do yoga in the morning and go for regular walk in the evening.
I am keeping good health and all my parameters are good for the last five years. KFT and LFT tests are normal.

Hi XXXXXXX ,

Thanks for your query.

Viagra (Sildenafil) is contraindicated in your case as you are regularly taking Tab.IMDUR 30mg.

The above combination can cause serious side-effects like Hypotension which can be fatal.

You can take Viagra if your cardiac condition is better and the tab. IMDUR can be
withheld for few days without any complications.So consult your treating doctor and follow his advice

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.

Regards.

Hi Again ,

A break of 48 hours from Imdur is needed before taking Viagra in minimum dose, but the complications cannot be excluded even in the minimum dosage.

Hope this helps you.

Wish you good health.
