Impotence pill - side effects: what is the risk of blindness or death?

23 million men have used Viagra since 1988, including 900,000 in the UK. Although few serious side effects have been seen, recent reports (2005) suggest a possible risk of blindness from non-arteritic ischaemic optic neuropathy. This is a rare condition in which blood supply is reduced to the optic nerve causing permanent nerve damage, and research workers at the University of Minnesota believe they have detected a cluster of cases of blindness from this cause in men who have taken Viagra.

The US Food and Drug Administration has also identified 50 men with blindness who have taken Viagra, but who also had diabetes and heart disease. However these problems with blindness need to be seen in the context of 23 million users, most of which have experienced significant benefit to their sex lives, and the fact that blindness is a known risk in those with both diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

AIDS: Don't Die of Confusion

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future Health Care, Pharma - Futurist Keynotes

When it seems that every newspaper report on AIDS is saying something different it is hardly surprising that our patients are confused about AIDS. They could be forgiven for coming to the conclusion that HIV is harmless, heterosexual AIDS is a myth, that a cure or vaccine is just around the corner and that promiscuity is safe. (article for Nucleus, Christian Medical Fellowship 1994).
