Can I take viagra (sildenafil) with propranolol?

Maybe. Sildenafil is a potent vasoactive chemical that causes dilation of blood vessels throughout the body, including the penis. When used in combination with other medications that affect blood pressure, viagra (sildenafil) can contribute to an unsafe sudden drop. The best thing to do is check with your doctor and maybe try the medication in a controlled setting (doctor's office) to make sure it's safe.
