Hello abdul majid;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Viagra is sildenafil citrate which was previously used as a antihypertensive used in high BP patients .Due to its side effect of prolonged erection due to dilatation of cavernous sinus it was relaunched for erectile dysfunction.Viagra causes dilatation of blood vessels in our body and even the vessels that supply heart.If you have problem of erectile dysfunction and the doctor prescribes it in the required dosage then you can take it but you should check your BP regularly.Normally it is safe till it causes dilatation of blood vessels of heart and causes few side effects like blurring of vision;giddiness;headache;flushing;tachycardia;syncope;angina;AV block and even MI (myocardial infarction or heart attack in common language).So please use it under guidance of a Physician only it will be better for your health.
Take care.
Thanks
