I think the difference between special sauce and mystery sauce is knowing where it came from! LOL

Right on time....kiss

This is a safe drug. In the broadest context, there are no safe drugs. But this comes as close as they can.

The issue of ED drugs effects on the eyes has long been known. Pilots can't take Viagra within so many hours of a flight. ED drugs effect color vision.

Hell, remember all that shit from the 70's. A little Viagra is minor league compared to that stuff.

Terry, I belive most men take Viagra for one of several reasons.

-Normal virility but it's like a rabbit's foot in the pocket. -Really have ED. -Have a false expectation of how long "normal" intercourse lasts. -Want to play more than one time a night. The classic: "When the day is done and you want to run on." mantra.

There are several ways to achieve the last goal. -Don't come with every partner. -Do the strange last..not first. -Don't play the day before. -Consider using a Latex/silicone cock ring.

BBC Article

Viagra linked to blindness risk Anti-impotence drug Viagra increases the risk of blindness, doctors believe.

Researchers at the University of Minnesota Medical School in the US identified seven men who developed vision problems after taking Viagra.

The team, writing in the Journal of Neuro-ophthalmology,said it brought the total number of reported cases to 14.

But Pfizer, the makers of the drug which has been used by more than 20m men since its launch in 1998, said the cases were a coincidence.

The seven men, aged between 50 and 69 years old, had all suffered from a swelling of the optic nerve within 36 hours of taking Viagra for erectile dysfunction.

Pfizer takes these reports very seriously, as we do anything concerning the safety of patients Pfizer spokeswoman

Six experienced vision loss within 24 hours, although only one had problems with both eyes.

The condition, known as nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), causes a rapid reduction of vision and can, in the most serious cases, lead to blindness.

Report co-author Dr Howard Pomeranz said the drug had long been linked to sight problems.

"For years, we have known some men who take Viagra will experience temporary colour changes in their vision and see things as blue or green.

"NAION is a much more serious condition because it can lead to permanent vision loss."

But a Pfizer spokeswoman said: "Pfizer takes these reports very seriously, as we do anything concerning the safety of patients.

"However, there have been no reports of NAION in the 103 controlled clinical trials of Viagra."

She said she believed the cases were just a coincidence, but said the company would continue monitoring reports. Story from BBC NEWS:

Rueters article, part two

NO EVIDENCE OF LINK

Viagra's label currently lists the most common side effects as headache, facial flushing and upset stomach, and says less common events are bluish or blurred visions and sensitivity to light that may occur for a short time.

"There is no evidence showing that NAION occurred more frequently in men taking Viagra than men of similar age and health who did not take Viagra," Pfizer said in a statement.

Dr. Michael Berelowitz, Pfizer's vice president for worldwide medical, said in an interview he did not think the FDA would require a "black box" warning - the strongest for prescription drugs - about the NAION reports.

Pfizer contacted the FDA about the blindness cases in March, after a study in the Journal of Neuro-Ophthalmology reported seven NAION cases in Viagra users, Berelowitz said. The study said the cases occurred within 36 hours after the men took Viagra.

All of the patients had high blood pressure, diabetes or elevated cholesterol - conditions that raise the risk of NAION, the study said. All developed some degree of blurred vision or vision loss in one eye, while one patient had the problem in both eyes.

"It's quite hard to see causality" between the vision loss and Viagra use, Pfizer's Berelowitz said.

The FDA said patients should contact a doctor if they have questions about the drugs or the condition.

Eli Lilly changed the Cialis label earlier this week to note the reports of NAION, company spokeswoman Kindra Strupp said. Five million men have taken the drug, she said.

GlaxoSmithKline officials could not immediately be reached for comment. The FDA will talk with GlaxoSmithKline about the Levitra label, Cruzan said.

FDA critic Sidney Wolfe said the agency should mandate a black-box warning for all three impotence pills, even though the blindness problem appears rare.

"The trade-off between blindness and something that could remedied by some psychological counseling is a really bad trade-off," said Wolfe, director of Public Citizen's Health Research Group.
