I'm 52 and on blood pressure medicine but everything is under control. My Dr. Has prescribed Viagra for me but they are so expensive . May I use herbal remadies like naturaly huge

Greetings Dennis.

I saw the ingredients of the Naturally huge pill on this link;

Not all of these have been scientifically studied for their adverse effects and drug interactions with the blood pressure medications. So ideal thing would be to avoid it. If you want to use it, your should be very cautious to look for any side effect like dizziness, headache, nausea etc. Any symptom would prohibit its use. Your doctor should also know that you are using them instead of Viagra.

 

Apart from the drug interaction issue and safety in the high blood pressure; the other important aspect of these herbal medication is efficacy. The evidences of their effect is anecdotal and there are no scientific double blind randomized controlled studies for their efficacy. So a slight apprehension on this aspect also is a consideration.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Hello Dennis,

Which medicine are you taking for blood pressure?

Dennis,

Here is an authentic link from the Mayoclinic for the various herbs and their effects / adverse effects;

Also read this research study which conclude;

Six electronic databases were searched to identify all relevant systematic reviews (SRs). Their methodological quality was assessed independently by two reviewers using the Oxman score. Four SRs met our inclusion criteria. They evaluated: acupuncture, ginseng, maca and yohimbine.Cautiously positive conclusions were drawn for yohimbine and ginseng as treatment options for ED.
