A 74 year old man took TWO tablets of Viagra, at once. He took it because he wanted to sexually impress during a night of passion with a woman almost 50 years his junior, but things didn’t quite go according to plan
Retired hairdresser Ray Boddington, 74, had picked up the pills from a friend in his local pub after scoring with the 27-year old woman, Mirror has told us. But as he left her apartment after a night of nookie, Ray was taken ill at a bus stop with major heart palpitations and an ambulance had to be called.
As he lay in the back of the ambulance a paramedic treating the father of six told him: ‘It’s coming down” only to then add: ”I’m talking about your blood pressure’’. Tests showed Ray had a high blood pressure reading of 157/88 – a normal reading shouldn’t be above 140/90. His heart was also beating at a high rate of 102 beats per minute – above the regular 60-100 beats.
The pensioner, from Salford, Greater Manchester – a former contestant on The X Factor – was allowed to stay in the vehicle until his heart rate went back to normal. He did not require any hospital treatment over the incident on October 25.
Ray said: “The paramedics told me you shouldn’t take two and I want to pass on that warning that it can make you ill, it can make your blood pressure go sky high or you could have a heart attack.
”It was only two hours after taking the tablets when I began began to feel faint. I could my heart pounding in my chest and the blood rushing from my head. I thought I was having a heart attack and I was going to die.” “Imagine if someone dies because no-one has spoken about the dangers. People shy away from the subject. It took around 24 hours for things to go back to normal.”
“In the ambulance the paramedic said, ‘it’s coming down’, I said ‘it doesn’t feel like it’s coming down’, she said, ‘no, I’m talking about your blood pressure’. Lol. What kind of wahala will sex not cause in this world?
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
