Viagra gives me headaches

Full question:
How can I avoid getting headaches when taking Viagra? Is it ok to take anadin or paracetamol to cure the headache pain?

Response from Dr Fox:
Unfortunately headache is not an unusual side effect when taking Viagra (sildenafil). You could take paracetamol or another simple pain killer, such as ibuprofen or aspirin at the same time as Viagra. Apart from simple pain killers and using the minimum effective dose, there may be little else to try, except perhaps Cialis or Levitra which may produce less headache, although both have a longer duration of action. Spedra is another alternative. Ensure you are also probably hydrated. Other brands of sildenafil (generic Viagra) may also be worth trying.
