Is there any harm to take Viagra 50 mg for Erectile Dysfunction ?

I am 38 years old and diabetic and hypertensive patient from last four years. For management of these diseases I am taking Nebistar SA containing nebivolol 5 mg, S-amlodipine 2.5 mg and EXERMET GZ 560 containing Metformin Hydrochloride extended-release500 mg and Gliclazide modified release 60 mg. From last six months I am also feeling the problem of erectile dysfunction (ED) and for management of ED I am taking Viagra 50 mg 1 hr before sex. Viagra is working well and I am not facing any problem (I have already tried 4 times). Is there any harm to take above drugs. Is any of the above drug is nitrate drug which is not permissible with Viagra. .

Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Erectile dysfunction is a common problem suffered by diabetic patients so you will face this problem as the nerve get weakened due to diabetes.You can take Viagra with advice from your doctor .As far as the other medicines are concerned they are not nitrates but they are anti hypertensive so they cause dilatation of blood vessels so you should use Viagra with caution and strictly under doctors advice.
Thanks

Recently, I ve developed a new relationship with a woman which started off slowly in which she was comfortable lying down with me, kissing and snuggling but not allowing it to get sexually intimate. This went on for a couple of days, during which I experienced several uncomfortable instances of blue balls (for lack of a better term). Later on, our relationship, eventually became intimate, but since those early days of sexual frustration my body has been experiencing what I can only describe as erectile dysfunction. I become aroused immediately but often sometime through the duration of foreplay I lose part of my erection, or often only achieve about 50% hardness, still able to climax, but nearly always making it difficult to penetrate. I ve never had this problem before. I almost feel like it s my body punishing me for crying wolf , so to speak: to many false alarms. Or that I ve damaged myself by sustaining arousal for long durations without resolutions. Is there anything I can do to get my ED functional again without taking viagra, cialis or any other medication?
