Consumption Of Strong Drugs For Men With Stroke?
Ass.wr.wb. Doctor, I had a stroke a few years ago. Until now I regularly take drugs: atorvastatin, amlodipine and thrombo aspirin. My question is, can I take Viagra-like drugs or the like? thank you
Hi Djaka. In general, stroke is a condition that occurs due to problems with blood flow to certain parts of the brain. This is usually marked by weakness in half of the body, slurred speech, asymmetrical corners of the mouth and often a decrease in consciousness. Hypertension, smoking, obesity, diabetes mellitus are the underlying risk factors. Handling of the stroke condition itself is in the form of dealing with the underlying risk factors to prevent recurrent strokes and help the body function as much as possible.
The use of Viagra that you mean is related to your sexual life? Indeed, stroke often creates problems in sexual relations where a person can become anxious, stressed, depressed, and the presence of residual symptoms can affect sexual life itself. Consult your doctor about this to get the underlying cause and appropriate treatment. Consumption of Viagra containing sildenafil cannot be taken carelessly where there are several contraindications such as a history of 3 months after a stroke, the presence of heart disease that follows, the existence of hypertension treatment where amlodipine is one of them, low blood pressure.
Consult your doctor first about this. Maintain a balanced diet, avoid smoking and alcohol, manage stress and talk to your partner about your condition hopefully can help. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
