Customer Question
My boyfriend takes simvastatin...

My boyfriend takes simvastatin. Someone told me that viagra would be dangerous for him to take. He has such a high sex drive I became concerned and asked him if he took viagra. He said no. I just found half of one on the floor next to my bed.

Doctor's Assistant: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?

Not that I am aware of

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
