Why mixing poppers and viagra is dangerous?

This article does not imply in any way that we condone the use of poppers or any recreational drugs. It is to highlight the dangers of recreational drug use especially when combined with prescription medicines like Viagra.

 

Erectile Dysfunction and Viagra, Cialis and Levitra

Around the world, there are an increasing number of people seeking medical help for erectile dysfunction. This has led to an increase in sales of drugs such as Viagra, Cialis and Levitra which have been improving the lives of many men affected by the condition. However, there is a smaller population that consume drugs like Viagra recreationally, which has raised concerns and is increasing in consumers.

 

 

Viagra has always been coming more popular at “bathhouse” and “house parties. The issue usually arises when consumers start mixing it with other party drugs such as ecstasy, GHB, amphetamine and many more. A more common combination used is Viagra taken with amyl nitrites, which is also known as “poppers”. These days, poppers may consist of assorted alkyl nitrites, mostly isopropyl nitrate and isobutyl nitrate.

 

 

Viagra alone, based on its mechanism of action, can cause the blood pressure to drop. Usually this happens minimally in a young and healthy patient. However, when another blood pressure lowering drug is taken with it, this can cause a further drop in blood pressure. Unfortunately, poppers is one of those drugs and can lead to a deadly drop in blood pressure when consumed with Viagra.

 

 

Viagra and Poppers

Besides that, the combination of Viagra and poppers (or any drug that lowers inhibitions) have been shown to increase the risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease thru a few reasons:

  • Consumers can sustain more and longer sexual encounters. This is why it is common in “Party and Play” which leads to multiple partners.
  • Decreased inhibitions which may potentially lead to risky sexual practices
  • Poppers itself dilates blood vessels in the anal canal and along with decreased pain sensation, which allows a person to participate longer in anal intercourse, will potentially result in more bleeding. This will definitely increase the risk of transmitting HIV and STD.

 

 

Poppers and Health Risk

It is recommended to avoid taking recreational drugs like Viagra and poppers. These are tips you can follow to prevent yourself from getting into medical problems :

1.) Avoid taking Viagra and poppers together. (If consumed less than 24 hours apart it can lead to a significant drop in blood pressure)

2.) Never ingest Poppers. If you have already done so, please present to an Emergency department.

3.) If your nose is stuffed, do not forcefully snort. This can cause ear and sinus problems.

4.) Poppers are highly flammable. Unless you have firemen in your room, keep them away from fire.

5.) Avoid taking Viagra and poppers if you have a heart condition, or any other significant medical conditions.

Like I said earlier poppers can cause disinhibition and impair your judgement so remember CONDOMS, CONDOMS and CONDOMS. Do not forget Lube!
