Beware club drugs and Viagra

couple dancing in night clubClub drugs include Ecstasy (MDMA), the ‘date rape drug’ (Rohypnol), Crystal meth or Speed (Methamphetamine), acid (LSD), Special K (Ketamine) and Poppers (amyl nitrates). Increasingly the dangers of these drugs are escalated by taking more than one at the same time.

Typically taken at raves, parties, and clubs, these drugs are used to enhance or distort sensations and perceptions, to feel euphoric, and experience greater enjoyment. They are perceived to increase self-confidence and physical energy.

Of course these drugs are illegal for a reason. They have adverse effects and can be dangerous, even fatal. Problems arise from toxicity due to excessive dose, from interactions, and due to impurities. Illegal drugs are not monitored for quality. Read in full

History of sildenafil as Viagra

Sildenafil citrate was created in 1989 by British scientists Albert Wood and Peter Dunn as a possible treatment for hypertension and angina; conditions associated with coronary heart disease. In 1991 Dr. Nicholas Terrett, now often referred to as the father of Viagra, was named in the British patent for the drug as a heart medication. And though Pfizer’s early trials of the drug in the 1990s did not prove its efficacy as a heart medication, patients who took part in the clinical trials reported increased erections after taking sildenafil. Separate studies provided more information on the biochemical process that causes erections, which helped scientists understand how sildenafil could enhance the effects of sexual stimulation and open up blood vessels in the penis. Sildenafil was then studied in men with erectile dysfunction, and in 1998 it was approved by the FDA specifically for treatment of ED. Read in full
