Mixing Viagra (a trade name of the drug sildenafil) with cocaine is not uncommon – especially among clubbers, those experimenting sexually and gay men.

Viagra is often also mixed with other stimulant and ‘party’ drugs such as amphetamine and ecstasy in a combination known as ‘sextasy’.

Mixing Viagra, which is a prescription drug intended to help with erectile dysfunction by increasing blood flow to the penis, with cocaine or other drugs increases the risk of dangerous side effects.

Dangers of mixing viagra and cocaine

Mixing cocaine and viagra can cause heart problems, stroke or a persistent and painful erection (lasting more than four hours) that can lead to long term damage.

Viagra should not be taken by mixed with nitrates – often included in medicines for chest pains and which may be mixed into cocaine by dealers. The combination of nitrates and Viagra can cause a dangerous drop in blood pressure.

There have been reports the combination of drugs can trigger what is known as ‘serotonin syndrome,’ a reaction of too much serotonin building up in the body, which can cause confusion, disorientation, hallucinations and tremors.

Viagra is not advised for people with certain conditions.


Myths around taking viagra recreationally

Viagra does not automatically cause erections and it does not increase sexual desire.

Rather, Viagra promotes the flow of blood into the penis during sexual stimulation to enable an erection.

As a result, someone who does not have trouble getting an erection is unlikely to benefit from Viagra apart from emotionally. Taking it may lead to increased confidence or feeling risque and therefore lead to better sex, for example.
