Viagra and Gastrointestinal Issues

infographic-viagra-thumb

Viagra has been the leading pharmaceutical medication for treating erectile dysfunction (ED) since it first hit the market in 1998. The “little blue pill” has generated billions in revenue for pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Pharmaceuticals. It has been featured in Time and Newsweek magazines and discussed on Larry King Live. Pfizer hired former U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Bob Dole to serve as spokesperson for the drug.

Viagra is well known, not only as the first medication for treating ED, but also for some of its more alarming and potentially life threatening side effects, such as cardiac incidents, which began surfacing not long after its release to the public. WebMD reports that 522 people died while taking Viagra within the first year it was on the market.

Unfortunately, this drug has many other side effects in addition to the ones in the headlines, including uncomfortable gastrointestinal ailments. Many men taking Viagra for erectile dysfunction will suffer gastrointestinal consequences, including nausea, indigestion, and diarrhea.

At Farah & Farah, we represent people who have been injured by dangerous drugs, and we are currently investigating Viagra injury cases nationwide. We believe that drugs should not be brought to the market until they have been extensively and completely tested, and that corporate profits should never come before personal safety. Our Viagra attorneys have been representing injury victims for more than three decades, and we are skilled and dedicated advocates for our clients.

What Are Possible Viagra Gastrointestinal Side Effects?

All pharmaceutical drugs have some side effects, but the list of common, infrequent, and rare side effects for Viagra on WebMD is exceptionally long. Gastrointestinal issues are listed by the company itself as third among the most common side effects of this drug. Gastrointestinal side effects listed on WebMD include:

  • Nausea
  • Indigestion
  • Diarrhea
  • Burning stomach
  • Stomach cramps
  • Vomiting

As stated on Healthline, erectile dysfunction medications such as Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra can cause gastrointestinal problems, the most common of which are indigestion and diarrhea. Patients who take Viagra for erectile dysfunction may have to take additional over-the-counter medications and adjust their diets to deal with the gastrointestinal side effects of this drug. An article on Livestrong entitled “How to Reduce Side Effects of Viagra” suggests that patients take over-the-counter meds for heartburn and indigestion at the same time they take their Viagra.
