Why would anyone
want to mix Viagra and Ecstasy?
Why is it
dangerous to combine Viagra and Ecstasy?
Secondly, there is a horrific potential side effect of this combination: priapism. Priapism is an erection that won't go down over an extended period of time. Though at first this might sound like a benefit, a priapism can be extremely painful and can cause permanent sexual dysfunction. Simply put, your penis can become so damaged that you can no longer get an erection.
Thirdly, Ecstasy has been proved to have dangerous effects on the heart. Ecstasy causes high blood pressure and dehydration; Viagra only worsens these effects. Ecstasy alone can be deadly, and mixing it with Viagra makes it even more dangerous.
I thought Viagra was a safe drug to use?
Viagra is safe. If used as directed. It's not safe, however, to mix Viagra, or any drug, with other drugs without first consulting with your doctor or pharmacist.
