Viagra and Alcohol Intake

In some dance clubs, young men are mixing Viagra and alcohol or other drugs like Marijuana or Ecstasy, to allow men to have sex while high.  Viagra should never be taken with alcohol, illegal drugs or any other prescription drugs, since this can lower heart rate and blood pressure to dangerously low levels.  This illegal use of Viagra is leading to an increase in sexually transmitted diseases, unintended pregnancies, and performance anxiety.  Performance anxiety occurs when a man believes he needs Viagra to get and or maintain an erection.  He believes that if he doesn’t use it, he can’t perform.  When a person believes this, it can actually occur.
People who drink excessively or use drugs are more likely to experience symptoms of erectile dysfunction, because drugs and alcohol have an effect on the central nervous system.  Young men who began smoking cigarettes as children or in their teens have a higher instance of developing impotence at a young age.  As children engage in these unhealthy activities at a younger age, the likelihood of developing erectile dysfunction at a younger age increases.
