Dr-Trace :

Hi I am Dr. Trace and I am going to attempt to answer your question.

Dr-Trace :

I need to ask a personal question.

Dr-Trace :

Did you take viagra or any other sexual enhancement product before having sex?

Dr-Trace :

These meds can sometimes cause problems with blood pressure and affect vision.

Dr-Trace :

Please get back to me and let me know.

Dr-Trace :

If you do not take these meds, one other thought could be orthostatic hypotension, or a drop in blood pressure upon standing or after sex.

Dr-Trace :

I would recommend a visit to your primary doc to tell the symptoms and have your BP checked both reclining and standing. If he or she finds nothing, an eye exam may help.

Dr-Trace :

I hope this answers your question.

Dr-Trace :

no viagra etc.

asthma medication

JACUSTOMER-jj388xb9- :

.5 g lorazapam

Dr-Trace :

This could be a case of orthostatic hypotension. I would recommend a full physical with vitals at your primary care doc, with a BP check both reclining and standing.
