The answer

Most patients who are taking tablets for high blood pressure (hypertension) can also take Viagra for erectile dysfunction safely. There are some medications that are not safe though, so you must check with your own doctor first. Your doctor can check that all your medications are safe, check your blood pressure is well controlled and advise you on the safest starting dose of the new tablet.
