Patients who use Viagra may get a fringe benefit, better lung power. A recent study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology says that patients with primary pulmonary hypertension, or PHP, who were also taking Viagra, showed significant improvement on the treadmill.

Normally, Viagra is taken for impotence but in this study, half the patients with PPH were given Viagra, the other half took a sugar pill. Researchers found that after six weeks, the length of endurance on the treadmill increased 44 % among the Viagra patients.
