Viagra To Help The Heart

Don't raise your eyebrows if the guy next to you in line at the pharmacy is picking up Viagra, it could be for his heart.

Viagra has been heavily promoted as a drug to treat Erectile Dysfunction, but now, a study in the Journal Circulation says it can also help patients with heart failure. That's really good news because the report says until now, patients who have a failing right ventricle in their heart don't have many treatment options. But the study says Viagra has proven to strengthen the right ventricle and increase the amount of blood it can pump out.
