hi guys . im doing a case study and research for work on the use of Viagra and or other phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors within the diving community . as these are Vasodiolators and mess with the blood perfusion and travel throught the body and the cells . etc etc etc

does any body on here have any info ? experience (can tell me through pm all private messages will be confidential ) do people use these as percribed medication or as part of the er hemm social realm

im looking for as many replies as possible and a good auld discussion .

does it effect you decompression ? or do you even think of it
does it effect your accent ? or feeling on accent ?

have you been bent after the use of said vasodiolaters ?

thanx in advance .

so who wants to kick it off ?

Why don't you just asked straight question like if I take these are a regular basis to help my normal functions to work more efficiently
would it affect me diving at any time.

apparently they are bringing our viagra eye drops....they make you look well 'ard

I once got one stuck in my throat, I had a stiff neck for ages...


Viagra is a trade name and an expensive option, sildenafil, cialis ect are marketed as generic viagra at much more affordable prices......so I am told ;)

I have dropped these on occasion, well, you know, why not, so I guess that puts me in the 'social' bracket and have been diving the day after with no noticeable effects.


Go on..you know you are curious ;)

When I was reading around high BP I saw an interesting article about erectile dysfunction in middle age men being linked to heart disease and clogged arteries, recommendation was that anyone seeing there doctor about 'problems' should get at least a BP check up. Think you'd have a hard time working out where Heart Disease/BP issues end and issues with vasodilators begin unless you could find a group who took vasodilators and definitely didn't have BP/Heart Disease issues. Good luck.

Do you mean ascent or accent? If viagra has an affect on ones vocal chords... well, I'd suggest not putting things other than a breathy thing in your mouth while diving... but to each his or her own.

that final double-entendre was completely unintended

cialis is not generic viagra. Viagra=sildenafil, cialis=tadalafil

leaflets and SPC (summary of product characteristics) here What's New - electronic Medicines Compendium (eMC)

Please don't buy this stuff off sites on the net. Some of the stuff has the wrong active, no active, too much/little active, dangerous excipients etc. I've seen the results of some of the raids the MHRA have done, and it is positively scary. Be careful out there and don't get hurt. Please. There are a few registered pharmacies online who will provide the genuine product after an online 'consultation', but to be honest even if they are legal, I'd recommend a real face-to-face consultation with your doctor if you think you are affected by these issues.

The fake/counterfeit issue is something I really do know about (unlike most of the crap I post on here) as it is part of my job, so pleeeaaasssseee be careful out there.

I don't know about viagra but I've found an orange injected with amyl nitrate affects my diving next day. If nothing else, long car journeys are particularly uncomfortable and my neck seal rubs where the belt has been.
