Club drugs and Viagra

What are the risks of taking Viagra and illegal drugs?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a real medical condition where you notice issues with maintaining or getting an erection. Over 50% of men over 40 and 70% of men over 70 suffer from some degree of ED. Recently celebrating it's 20 year anniversary, Viagra was approved on 27th March 1998 United States. Viagra has a generic sister called Sildenafil Citrate and is a Phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor (PDE-5 inhibitor). 

Another name for ED is impotence with most men experiencing some form of ED at some point in their life. The chances of suffering from ED do increase with age, but it is not part and parcel of getting older. ED can be due to psychological or physiological reasons. By addressing the underlying issue of ED, it can be cured or tackled. However, ED usually results from a combination of problems. When there is a lack of sufficient blood flow to the penis, this prevents the penis from becoming erect and thus impacts sexual activity from taking place.

Club drugs 

I know with the current state of the world with COVID, it is very unlikely that clubs are open especially in the UK. But club drugs are not just restricted to clubs. Many people use them to increase their experience with music, self-confidence and energy. Club drugs include Ecstasy (MDMA), the ‘date rape drug’ (Rohypnol), Crystal meth or Speed (Methamphetamine), acid (LSD), Special K (Ketamine) and Poppers (amyl nitrates). Mixing alcohol is already frowned upon, mixing drugs is worse. 

These drugs are illegal for various reasons as they can have dangerous and fatal effects on the body and should not be abused. They may be impure, overused or interact with other drugs or alcohol in the system. While each drug specification comes with warmings about possible interactions it may have with other drugs, this does not include illegal substances such as club drugs. As interactions of medications with these illegal substances are unethical and not conducted, the interactions they may have are unknown and sparse. 

There have been increasing worries about mixing ED medications such as Viagra/Sildenafil/Cialis. As some drugs such as ecstasy and methamphetamine’s have an effect on sexual function and arousal, men might take ED medication to counteract these effects. Other meds such as heroin, cocaine, and marijuana can affect sexual abilities, this might prompt the co-usage of ED medications. 

Some men have been found to take Viagra to enable a night of long and heightened sexual experiences. Men believe taking ED medications can elevate their mood, but little do they know that ED medications do not have psychoactive effects, purely physical effects.

Viagra + Poppers

The combination of Viagra with Poppers has been known to result in fatality. Both these medication has vasodilator effects (dilating blood vessels), resulting in a drop in blood pressure. Based on the extent the combination of medications has on blood lowering, it can cause a feeling of light-headedness or fainting. The more serious effects are heart attack if the heart fails to receive sufficient blood flow and oxygen levels. If the same happens for the brain tissue, it can result in a stroke.

Viagra + Ecstasy 

There is less of a solid understanding of the effects Viagra and Ecstasy have on the body. MDMA or ecstasy increases the heart rate, blood pressure and temperature by stimulating the cardiovascular system. Viagra maintains a level of the chemical messenger cGMP in the smooth muscle cells of the penis. This messenger helps relax the muscles in the penis needed for an erection. This helps more blood flow to the penis helping it stiffen. By taking Viagra, it causes an increase in heart rate to maintain blood pressure. The 2 medications essentially exacerbate each other’s effects which could prove dangerous and fatal. 

Priapism 

Priapism is a medical term to describe prolonged painful erections. I’m sure we all know that erections are supposed to be enjoyable, not painful. Usually, erections should go away after the sexual stimulus is removed. However, in priapism, the erection continues for hours after sexual stimulus or occurs without sexual stimulus in the first place and is considered a medical emergency. 

There are 2 types of priapism, and they present with varying symptoms. The two types are ischaemic and non-ischaemic priapism. The way to subdue the painful erection is through aspiration of blood in the penis with a needle and syringe. Without treatment, it can lead to necrosis of the penile tissue and these ED problems in the future.

ED medications are causes of priapism and when mixed with alcohol, marijuana or cocaine, the risk of priapism increases.

Counterfeit Viagra

Beware of fake drugs. Viagra is and has always been a prescription medication and is not available over the counter in pharmacies. There were many fake Viagra counterfeits circulating, available on the black market. These counterfeit medications had a large side effect profile and were a health risk to the users. As a result of this, a non-prescriptive spin-off of Viagra emerged: Viagra Connect. Viagra Connect can be found over the counter in pharmacies without a doctor’s prescription, so you can ensure you are putting clean medication into your body.
