My 67 yr old husband has had stents put in his heart 3

Customer Question

My 67 yr old husband has had stents put in his heart 3 times, he is now being told due to scar tissue his heart lining is only pumping at 30% efficiency and that he should have a defibrillator installed... He will soon be getting out of prison after a 7 year sentence and we were married just before he went in, so we would like to have an active sex life. Can he use viagra or something like that from a health/nutrition store safely with his heart issues? Thank you for your advice

Unfortunately viagra and related medications are contraindicated in persons with heart disease because it can cause serious problems. Moreover it interferes with number of medications used to treat heart conditions. So i would recommend not to use it to be on safe side.

Hope this helps.
