Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Coversyl 5/1.25 mg is a combination medication. Coversyl is in the ACE family of medications and is not known to interact with viagra or any of the similar medications.

It cannot be used with antihypertensives in the nitrate family but this is because they act along a similiar pathway and the viagra would increase the effects of the nitrates.
There is no reported problems with use of antihypertensives that work along another pathway,, this includes coversyl.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
