The little blue triangular shaped pill

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Not sure if this has been covered but anyways .............

    I have seen advertised in the News of the World where you can buy these blue triangular pills (so many for a couple of quid) I take it from the advertiseing that these are substitues for `Viagra`. Well I also take it that these pills do something to the blood in some way (making the old chap come to life) and perking up the labido somewhat. (Getting to the question now) My question is can these be taken whilst I am already taking blood pressure medication?

    Comments / answers ? :twisted: :roll:
     
  2. So you can’t get wood and you have asked for medical advice on a public web site. I am not a Dr and recently failed my first aid ITD for trying to get the CPR doll to nosh me off but I would guess yes but they must be forced down the japs eye.
     
  3. I would strongly advise talking to your doctor and ensure you get correct advice. It would depend on the particular drug and dosage that you have been prescribed to control your hypertension. I've no idea what kind of drug interaction there might be, but I am sure you need to get good quality advice.

    On the other hand.... ...a soldier who cannot stand to attention when required to do so - what is the world coming to.
     
  4. Don't take them until you've checked with the doctor.

    I assume you are already fairly hypertensive, middle aged and consequently at a greater risk of stroke (cerebrovascular accident) and heart attack as it is. These little blue pills may contraindicate with your current medication, plus you don't want to risk increasing your BP any further. Ask your doc who'll know your history.
     
  5. You can get these same pills down the local sex shop - see the list in the News of the World advert for your nearest. If he sells you some crap ones then you can just grass him to trading standards so go on, give em a whirl Mr Softie!!
     
  6. Many thanks to you all - think Ill give it a miss for the time being.....
     
  7. Just in case there are some gentleman who would like to take viagra or athe little blue pills read this information

    (SOURCE VIAGRA.COM)

    VIAGRA is only for men with ED. VIAGRA is not approved for newborns, children, or women. Do not let anyone else take your VIAGRA. VIAGRA must be used only when prescribed by a healthcare professional.

    Before you start treatment with VIAGRA, be sure to ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for sexual activity. If you're a man who uses nitrate drugs, like nitroglycerin, you should never take VIAGRA. The combination of VIAGRA and nitrates can make your blood pressure suddenly drop to an unsafe level. You could get dizzy, faint, or even have a heart attack or stroke. Nitrates are found in many prescription medicines that are used to treat angina (chest pain due to heart disease). These include:

    Nitroglycerin (sprays, ointments, skin patches or pastes, and tablets that are swallowed or dissolved in the mouth)
    Isosorbide mononitrate and isosorbide dinitrate (tablets that are swallowed, chewed, or dissolved in the mouth)
    Nitrates are also found in recreational drugs such as amyl nitrate or nitrite ("poppers"). If you are not sure if any of your medicines contain nitrates, or if you do not understand what nitrates are, ask your doctor or pharmacist
     
  8. This is a British Army site, so Army abbreviations are part of it. But medical ones make a nonsense of the above. What I'm getting to is that (if anyone is interested in the above) E D means "erectile dysfunction".
     
  9. Oh lookee - back to its roots

    Cut and paste
    Cut and paste
    Cut and paste
    Cut and paste

    But what does it actually KNOW?

    FCUK ALL!!!!
     
  10. I thought she was being helpful. Quoted source, not walting, no comments or opinions.
     
  11. NO!!!!

    Viagra and heart medication are a contra indication!

    For instance taking Viagra whilst on prescribed nitrolingual could result in a very, very sore heart! resulting in.... you guessed it - death!
     
  12. A guy i know in the TA was back from Iraq and thought he would take 2 tablets at once " to show the wife what she'd missed". He had a stroke.
     

  13. Fcuk off you cnut. Thats twice now. Mods, please move any inflammatory posting to the ARRSE Hole. Thats what its there for.
     
  14. How can a 36 year old virgin possibly think she’s fit to give sexual advice?
     
  15. As a user of these tablets I may be able to to elighten some.

    Taking quite a bit of medication for high blood pressure (beta blockers- which can make you impotent) as well a having had a quadruple by-pass and having diabetes, I have no problem in taking them.

    However, if you suffer from angina and take spray medication it is stronly advised not to use it.

    I have had no side effects and the old man has a good day out.

    The tablets come in various dosages 25mg 50mg and 100mg, being a crafty git I get the 100mg and cut them in half (you are only allowed 4 per month on prescription - if you are diabetic).

    All taken under doctors advice.
