Need more info: Any one of the number of drugs that you take will have an effect on achieving a firm erection. Taking Cialis with a cardiovascular problem as it appears you have, can also be dangerous. Please consult with your cardiologist before thinking of taking Cialis or any other medication like it that is approved by the FDA. Do not try any OTC drugs either.

If you take viagra (sildenafil) prior to sleep would nocturnal erections induce priapism?

Dr. Moez Khorsandi

Possibly: Viagra (sildenafil) and any agent used treat erectile dysfunction can induce priapism. If viagra (sildenafil) is taken at night, then it is possible that a normal erection could last longer and cause priapism. Who actually develops priapism depends on their risk factors such as age, comorbidities including diabetes and hypertension, and use of other medications. The more comorbidities a man has, the less likely.

Yes: High blood pressure is one of the major risk factors for heart attacks. If you have it, take steps to keep it under control with health diet, regular exercise, weight loss if needed, limited alcohol consumption, avoidance of tobacco and medications if needed. You should also find out what other risk factors for heart attack or stroke you have and address them as well.

It doesn't: Although high blood pressure is a risk factor for coronary heart disease, there is no evidence that there is an acute rise in blood pressure prior to a heart attack.
