I am 66 years old. I am diabetic since last 25 years. Diabetese is

under control with one shot of 10 units of insulin per day. Similarly

have mild BP for that I take 10 mg of amlodopine per day. I observed

that whenever I take a 50 mg sildenafil tablet for ED my sytolic BP

which usually remains in the range of 140-155 mm comes down to

normal level of 120-130 mm. My diastolic BP remains around 70.

Is there anyone with similar experience? Is it possible to take

sildenafil on regular basis-say once in three days-to keep BP near

normal along with amlodopine tablets?
