Hello,I am Dr. Aren,I have over 37 years of clinical experience,I will help with your query. Sidenafil/Viagra and betablockers have a mild interaction in which there is a mild lowering of blood pressure,apart from this the drug does not have any serious side effect.Avoiding alcohol and grape fruit juice is recommended.There is no dangerous interaction between the two drugs.

My pressure on the beta blocker and chlorthalidon is 112/77 is that going to be a problem?
Doctor: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 2 months ago

No,that should not be a problem if you take viagra at this blood pressure.Be aware that keeping well hydrated is important.

If the beta blocker lowers pressure and the viagra lowers pressure how does it work?
Doctor: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 2 months ago

The blood pressure is lowered by 5-10mm which does not cause serious issues.
