Can older men around 80 take Caverta 100 mg. will it help them the proper erections and is it safe.

@Guest

Hi, Older men around 80 or more can certainly take PDE5 inhibitor like Sildenafil. It is advisable to get examined by a qualified doctor, who could be a Sexologist or your MBBS Family Physician. Sildenafil [Brand name Caverta] cannot be taken if you are taking any medicines containing nitrates. Example: Sorbitrate is a medicine typically given for patients who have had angina. When on nitrates ingestion of sildenafil can lead to fatal drop in blood pressure. Doctor may like to check your Renal function tests, Liver function tests and also recommend a Stress test for assessing your Cardiac function. The point I make is age is not in itself contraindication. A smaller dose (example 50 mg) may be more appropriate. Please consult a qualified doctor before you take any prescription medicine. Best wishes, Happiness doctor, Ashok Koparday
