Viagra was in its first conception ment to fight Pulmonary Hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs) It had a side effect that we are all to familiar with. The childrens hospital I work at is an investigational center for using viagra on children with Pulm, Hypertension. In climbers it cause the pulmonary vascular bed to dilate thus helping increase flow and improve oxygenation.

Rogain the hir drug initally investigated as a blood pressure medication. Kind of serindepity eh?
