Viagra and Viread
Feb 8, 2005

I am taking Viread and Viagra. Should i be worried about the side effects of this or what? please write me back. thanks randall

Response from Dr. Conway

There is no specific interaction between these two medications, so you do not need to worry about anything beyond the side effects of the individual drugs. In general terms, Viread is a drug that is very easy to take, and you may get mild gastrointestinal symptoms, if anything. Viagra may cause flushing, and related symptoms, due to vasodilation.

My head or my liver?
