Hi there,

Viagra can cause drop in BP and dizziness while taking BP medications.

The risk can be minimized by keeping about 12 hour intervals between viagra and other medication dosage.

Occasional use of viagra should be fine.

Please discuss with your doctor also.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
