Yes if taken with...: Viagra (sildenafil) was initially studied as a blood pressure lowering drug. Unfortunately, it was not found to be very successful at treating hypertension. However, when taken with nitrates eg nitroglycerin, amyl nitrates, etc, it can dramatically lower one's blood pressure to the point of passing out. Check out http://www.drugs.com/viagra.html.
