New Job for Viagra

It may not be what you think if you see someone picking up Viagra from the pharmacy.

UCLA researchers say Viagra is proving to be very helpful in allowing patients with pulmonary fibrosis, or scarring in the lungs, to get out and exercise.

Many patients with the disease also have pulmonary hypertension, both of which may cause breathing difficulties. That's where Viagra comes in.

The drug that helps control impotence opens the blood vessels, and allows for more blood flow. As a result, study patients taking Viagra improved their walking distance by 20 percent.
