Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to HCM Detailed Answer: Generally it is recommended not to take viagra with nitrates since it can cause rapid BP fall. most other antihypertensives can be used safely with viagra but it still doesnt mean that cetain degree of BP fall can happen. You should measure yur bP before you take viagra and it must not be below 110/80. But considering your case, 80/40 is seriously low BP and you should not take that risk anymore. You should try with 25mg next time and measure your BP after it. If this happens again you should consider another antihypertensive or avoid viagra forever. Also, it is possible that your low BP was provocated by some other factors such as emotional stress or dehydration. All in all, be careful,decrease viagra dosage and keep your BP above 110. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards

Brief Answer: hi Detailed Answer: If blood pressure is fine then you shouldnt be concerned. But try to measure your BP 3x a day and see the dynamics of it. If bp is under 140 then medicines may not be necessary at all. just watch for your diet,avoud salty food and regulate body weight .
