Most people understand that drinking alcohol with certain prescription drugs can be dangerous, causing severe adverse effects – but is it safe to drink alcohol while taking Viagra?

Viagra, also known by its generic name sildenafil citrate, is a prescription medication used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) by increasing blood flow to the penis so a man can achieve and maintain an erection.  It works by relaxing the muscles in the walls of blood vessels, and by stopping the breakdown of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), a chemical messenger in the body which dilates arteries.

Moderate consumption of alcohol while taking Viagra seems to be safe.

For some men, alcohol consumption is one of the factors leading to erectile dysfunction.  Thus, it may be more important to consider reducing alcohol consumption, rather than combining alcohol with Viagra, to determine if alcohol consumption may be affecting your sexual performance.  Excessive alcohol use (both binging and chronic use) has been shown to lower testosterone levels in some men, as well as reduce sperm quality and volume by shrinking the testicles.

It important to note that Viagra does not work by itself – it does not actually cause an erection. A man has to be sexually aroused in order for Viagra to work.  Because alcohol is a depressant, it can negatively affect your mood and/or sexual desire. If this happens Viagra will not work.

So enjoy that glass of wine during your romantic dinner and remember – Viagra works if you’re in the mood.  Too much alcohol can negatively impact your expected results.
