Is Viagra or Cialis more effective with mountain sickness than other drugs?

For more than ten years, debates raged in the scientific society about the effectiveness of Viagra in the treatment of mountain sickness and its possible role in intensifying of speed-strength indicators during high-altitude conditions. Korean doctors often prescribe sildenafil to climbers, helping the body to adapt in the highlands.

Perhaps all this “fuss” with Viagra will make you smile, but for people who spend a lot of time in a rarefied atmosphere, it’s not laughable at all.

Viagra and pulmonary hypertension

The deafening success of Viagra in recent years has left another company of Pfizer, Revatio, in the background. Having sildenafil as an active ingredient (although in a more modest dose – 20 mg), this drug is endowed with a very narrow therapeutic specialization: to treat pulmonary hypertension. Expanding the arteries that carry blood to the lungs, Revatio and generics help to normalize pulmonary pressure and relieve the load from heart and bronchial tree.

By the same principle, by the way, Viagra acts, which facilitates blood filling of the cavernous bodies of the penis. What is the relationship between pulmonary hypertension and mountain sickness? The most direct: the fact is that the first is a typical consequence of staying in high mountains. And since sildenafil successfully solves the problem of high blood pressure in the lungs, its usefulness becomes obvious not just for raising morale in front of the love stadium, but also when climbing into the mountains.

Viagra and sports

To date, three studies have been conducted the ability of sildenafil to affect the speed-strength indicators of athletes training in conditions of oxygen deficiency. This component does not provide any significant effect on cardiac function or operability in normoxia conditions, since when the body does not lack oxygen.

The situation changed dramatically when the subjects were placed in conditions of hypoxia (oxygen starvation): sildenafil irrespective of its dose improved the work of the cardiovascular system and enhanced the degree of saturation of the arterial blood with oxygen. Thus, this drug has confirmed its effectiveness and in the absence of wits from the WADA in the near future will begin to be used not just in “bed”, but also in sports. So when you try finding out what works better Viagra or Cialis, you may consume the one that will help also in sport, do not use Cialis and Viagra together.

Viagra and you

You ask: why should I use sildenafil not exclusively for its main purpose?

1. Once

you will have some dizziness and there will be shortness of breath somewhere in La Paz, and Viagra is right in your pocket, now you know about its other remarkable properties.

2. Another additional indication in the instructions for use means that this drug is even more deeply researched, and its safety is once again confirmed in different people and in different conditions.

Today we have to take a lot of medicaments with unproven properly effectiveness and questionable security. But this is definitely not about Cialis vs Viagra. So, be calm: with sildenafil, any mountains will be reached!
