Drugs For Erectile Dysfunction Can Cause Blindness
Erectile dysfunction is a condition that affects hundreds of millions of men worldwide. Pharmaceutical companies have capitalized on this market by creating drugs that enable men to get and maintain erections. For some, these drugs, such as Viagra, Levitra and Cialis, are of great help. However, as with all drugs, side-effects are common.
Some of the most cited side-effects are temporary blurry vision, stuffy nose and flushing of the face. However, there is a more serious and permanent side effect that most people are probably not aware of. Although it is quite rare, there have been several reported cases. The side-effect? Blindness.
Dr. Howard Pomeranz, a neuroopthalmologist and associate professor at Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine in New York is breaking the silence. One of his patients went blind, and he is also aware of other similar cases.
A study has concluded that these pharmaceutical drugs (Viagra, Levitra, Cialis, etc.) did significantly increase the risk of blindness within 24 hours, compared to not taking the drugs. You find a link to the study here.
