Imagine having to explain this to projectlead: "well it does shit for the disease we designed it for but we have some really good hard solid numbers on the side effect"

It just pumps more blood to your veins. I've heard a story that a baby with blocked veins was saved because of it. Didn't confirm.
Viagra is used in a lot of weird cases. I had a dog that got some bad cirulation problems due to a malformation of an artery. She got treated with Viagra to help her blood flow better so she could get operated after. Feel really werid to give a boner pill to a dog.
the big bucks never stoped rolling...
Also, Viagra has no effect on people without erectile dysfunction. It doesn't induce an erection. It helps maintain it.
Their conditions did actually improve. Viagra is still used to treat things outside of erectile dysfunction.
Nice. Although, it does work, and is still used, for pulmonary hypertension.
