Hello, Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

You are a coronary artery disease [CAD] patient, with h/o myocardial infarction [heart attack], with raised blood pressure, & raised lipid/cholesterol levels-- as suggested by your medication list. You should stop smoking also as it causes vasoconstriction, which may be a factor in sexual weakness.
Viagra [Sildenafil] is a good drug, but it may have drug interactions with medicines which you are already taking. IInd, you should get a cardiac check up thoroughly, before you take Viagra [Sildenafil]. Moreover its a prescription medicine, so take as advised by your cardiologist [ie. dose & frequency]. Wish you best of health.
