 Pulmonary Hypertension can be Eased by Viagra
Paul Coates, a rugby player, says his life was normalized by Viagra. No, It is not his sexual life, but something very different. Paul has idiopathic pulmonary hypertension.

This is a condition that restricts blood flow in the lungs raising the pressure in that area. One of the first symptoms of Idiopathic Pulmonary Hypertension is blue lips caused by lack of oxygen in the blood.

Viagra has always been touted to help ease the condition. Just as it increases blood flow to the erectile tissue in the penis, Viagra also increases blood flow in the arteries of the lung.

The drug has helped Mr Coates carry on with his life. Paul got married recently and paid tribute to his condition by painting his lips blue.
