Brief Answer:
Do Not use now...

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

Caverta(sildenafil citrate) should be used very carefully in patients of cardiovascular diseases like Blood pressure, Angina(chest pain), MI(previous heart attack) and patients who are on pills like anti-hypertensives and Nitrates like you.

Why caution is required means- It decreases the blood pressure suddenly and precipitates the heart problems .
As you already have the B.P and increased heart rate,I suggest you not to take that pill now.

If you are forced to use,you better consult a cardiologist and use under care of him.

Hope i have cleared your doubt, if you have any further questions let me know.

Brief Answer:
ED is purely psychosocial cause at this age...

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back,

Many of the scientific studies has proved that cause of ED(erectile dysfunction) is 70% due to Psycho-social causes like:

1.Excessive office hours
2.Mental stress
3.Improper sleep
4.Lack of interest on the partner
5.Lack of excercise
6.Poor dietary habbits.

All i can say is, you should sort out the possible cause, out of above mentioned list.
change your life style accordingly. It surely works with out pills...!
