Hi hello ; Sildenafil helps me a lot I have pah . that said if you experience a negative side effects to any medication stop taking it tell your doctor for sure . Say you will not take it because it doesn't agree with your body. Stand up for yourself ! My mom took stuff I think "lipitor" ended up giving her myasthenia gravis and she died from it (one of those rare side effects people) You've got to watch out it's okay to be a guinea pig, but don't let MD push you around. So yeah medicine makes you feel better it's working well - if it makes you worse it's working wrong. It's that's that simple I wish you well 🐞

Clara Bell, your doctor is there to help you. She would not want you to take a medicine that did more harm than good. You are probably very susceptible to drugs and maybe she can decrease the dose. Call her. Hugs and prayers.
