Hi. I wanted to ask a question about Viagra and high blood

Customer Question

Hi. I wanted to ask a question about Viagra and high blood pressure. I wondered whether Viagra is a potential risk for someone with high blood pressure full stop, or whether it's mixing Viagra with medication for high blood pressure that's a potential issue or whether it's the potential increased physical activity during sex that might be a risk for someone with high blood pressure, as I'm unclear on this. Thanks very much.
