Brief Answer:
no, it cannot be used with any nitrates

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Viagra and similar medications (cialis and levitra) CANNOT be used with any nitrate.

This combination is contraindicated (not advised, avoided).

Viagra/cialis/levitra work by causing dilation/enlargement of blood vessels thereby improving blood flow.
Nitrates also work in the same way. It is thought that the combination would cause dangerous decreases or drops in blood pressure

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