Hi,

Thanks for requesting me. The only absolute warning for Viagra is not to take it with any nitrate-containing drugs including heart medications such as nitroglycerin and recreational drugs such as amyl nitrate ("poppers"). The only possible problem I can imagine with pain killers is a drop in blood pressure, but it is not a warning in the literature. Here is the full prescribing information.
