Blue-hoo a stiff issue in the bedroom

Viagra has been a godsend for many older – and younger – men whose passion is strong but the flesh weak.

Most can take Viagra for erectile dysfunction without a problem. But a new report has found some may experience an odd side effect – changes in eyesight, including blue-tinted vision, that can last for several weeks.

The report, published in the journal Frontiers in Neurology, describes the cases of 17 men who visited a hospital in Turkey with vision problems that persisted for more than 24 hours after they’d taken sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra.

The problems reported included blurred vision, sensitivity to light, impaired eyesight and changes to colour perception, including “intensely blue-coloured vision”, a side effect known as cyanopsia. Those with cyanopsia also reported “red-green colour blindness” in which red and green hues appeared to be brownish, the report said. None of the patients had a history of eye disease or colour blindness.

While it’s known that sildenafil can cause temporary vision changes, including blurred vision and cyanopsia, these side effects typically disappear within three to five hours. Persistent vision changes, such as those described in this report, are rarer. Fortunately, the vision problems for all the men described in this report went away after 21 days.

Last year, researchers in Massachusetts reported the case of a man who suffered vision loss, including “doughnut-shaped” spots in his vision, which lasted for at least two months after he’d consumed an entire bottle of liquid sildenafil.

Because it’s unclear who will experience side effects, health professionals say men should start on lower doses of the drug and use the drug only under prescription.

“Although these drugs, when used under the control of physicians and at the recommended doses, provide very important sexual and mental support, uncontrolled and inappropriate doses should not be used or repeated,” said study author Dr Cüneyt Karaarslan.

I thought it was old age getting to me !!! 

Viagra and any other erectile disfunction meds can lower your blood pressure in some cases, they may also cause flushing and headaches, there are a variety of other possible side affects that may occur, the Doctor prescribing has an obligation to pursue all avenues before putting some one on these tablets as there may be other reasons behind the problem. Before anybody takes these meds they should be aware of any side affects, follow the recommended dosage and do not overdose.

Like all wonderfull items which make our lives that much better there is often a trade off, the Birth pill was the same, when they came out it appeared a wonderfull thing for woman to be able to control there birth control, unfortunately not all dosages were the same for evrybody and a lot of woman experienced a variety of quite bad side affects, some life threatening, luckily eventually more varieties came on the market to suit a variety of needs.

Erectile dysfunction is not going away and the need for more research for this problem needs to be ongoing and better options adopted, the same with the birth pill, we should be constantly looking for safer options.

How very good to have input from someone who really has some professional knowledge and takes the trouble to share it. Thank you!

As a Paramedic of some years one other problem with some one taking the Viagra type meds is that with the use of GTN spray for Chest pain it can drop the blood pressure because it is a vaso dialator which acts on the heart vesels to allow more oxygen supply, very effective for Angina and other heart problems, therefore when you consider Viagra and co dialate the blood vessels in the Penis to produce an erection there is also a trade of with some other effects through the body, in other words other vessels may be mildly affected which may increase with a GTN spray.
