As more young men take the blue pill to enhance their sex life, doctors worry that the casual use of the drug will lead to more health complications.

Concern about the use of the blue pill by younger men emerged after a 28-year-old man from central India who took the drug suffered cardiac arrest while having sex and died. This death underscores concerns about the casual use of the blue pill, particularly by younger men who may have other health conditions that the drug is known to adversely impact. Cardiac arrest, for example, is one of the most common risks posed by the blue pill.

The Blue Pill appeals to younger men

While erectile dysfunction is most common in older men, many blue pill users are younger. In the United States, more than 40% of young men report some degree of erectile dysfunction. The pharmaceutical company, which produces the blue pill, reports that most users of the drug are in their early to mid-40s.

Causes of erectile dysfunction include psychogenic and organic issues, including stress and relationship problems. Certain health conditions, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes, can also impact the ability to achieve an erection. Other factors that contribute to erectile dysfunction are:

  • Anxiety, depression
  • Smoking
  • Excess alcohol consumption
  • Drug use
  • Inactivity
  • Obesity
  • Bodybuilding supplements, including testosterone boosters

Use The Blue Pill Safely

As one of the best-selling products in the world. The blue pill can help younger men who suffer from erectile dysfunction. But the concern doctors raise is that young men will use the drug without consulting with a physician and without determining whether they have other health conditions that may be exasperated by the drug.

For example, the blue pill may not be safe to take for men who suffer from heart-related problems or who take medication for such health problems. While it helps boost erections by constricting blood vessels, heart medications can widen blood vessels. The two taken together can cause a dangerous drop in blood pressure and even death.

Young men who suffer from erectile dysfunction should pursue available treatments for the condition under the supervision of a doctor. They should also ensure they have no other health conditions that could be worsened or complicated by taking the blue pill.
