Brief Answer:
Viagra may be taken with Ramipril

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Viagra may be taken safely with Ramipril. The only thing is you need to get your Blood Pressure checked. If it is more then 110/80 mmHg then Viagra may be taken.

If you have low BP less then 110/80 then avoid taking Viagra with Ramipril. Though it is proved by studies that Viagra don't have much effect on blood pressure still it is not advised for low blood pressure people to take it.

In your place it is unlikely that you get Viagra over the counter. So I suggest you to consult your doctor and get prescription along with dosage details.

Hope I have answered your query. If any further queries are there I would love to help.

Regards
Dr.Deepika Patil

My husband is suffering from Dengue since 15 September. His platelet count on Sunday (15 Sep) was 1.84 Lacs and it yesterday it hovered around 1.60 Lacs but today it dipped to 77 thousand.
I know there are no medicines as such for Dengue, for fever however he is prescribed Dolo (paracetamol)/Nice (if fever doesn't come down by taking Dolo) and Allegra 120 mg for rashes and sore throat. But his throat has developed white patches and throat is aching so Doctor prescribed Augmentin. Please suggest
- Should an antibiotic such as Augmentic should be taken in Dengue?
- Till what level of platelet count he should remain at home (without being hospitalized).
- Should his BP be monitored regularly as during Dengue internal weakness and bleeding may lead to low BP which can cause organ damage? I am saying this based on my knowledge, please correct if this is wrongly assumed.
- When should we hope him to start recovering as he is already in his 5th day of disease.

One of my cousins died last year because of dengue hemorrhagic fever and we are very worried for him. Please help.
