Dear Customer: Greetings, this is Dr. Basu, experienced Medical Specialist and former attending physician of Harvard Medical School. I am board-certified with many years of experience. I did review your inquiry and I am hoping to give you at least some high-quality guidance here.

Please give me some time to review your concerns. Please be patient with me as I am on and off the computer so responses can be delayed at times, but I will be glad to help.

Do you have any other medical condition?

Thank you

Do you take any medication?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
simvastin. amlopodine

Ok thanks for replying.

In that case, you may still use viagra.

Viagra can increase your pulse rate.

It also lowers blood pressure --please avoid taking it with amlodipine same time.

You can take viagra about 6 hours after amlodipine dose as needed.
