I was diagnose with clogged arteries over a year ago. I even had a stent put in because one of my arteries was ecluded. I still had stable angina every time I did some for of cardio activity or is I ate something with sodium. I started using Nitroglycerin patches and even have the pills just in case my angina episode occurs.
I had a date and I read online that you can't take viagra and any nitrates cause it can drop your blood pressure really low. So I stopped using my nitroglycerin for about 48 hours so I can take the Viagra. I noticed that I wasn't having chest pains a few hours after I took the viagra. Then I didn't have angina for over a day. Once I felt a little chest pain, I took another viagra and no angina. I've been taken viagra for over 2 weeks and no angina. I even have been doing cardio with no chest pain whatsoever. I told my cardiologist this, but she says that it was not good and I should stop immediately and start using the nitrates again. But she didn't give me a good reason to stop. I have no angina whatsoever. I was wondering has anyone else tried this? If so, have you found any pros or cons? I can't find anything and I've read that viagra was originally to prevent angina. I want to keep taking the viagra but I don't want to damage the heart either, Help please. Thanks
