Last month, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it had 38 reports of blindness caused by a a condition called NAION or non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy among users of Viagra. According to Pfizer the producer of Viagra. the drug has gone through exhaustive studies and has not been linked to blindness or any other sight related disorders. I’m sure these findings will evoke a sigh of relief on behalf of the many users of the product.

The FDA had little to say about Pfizer’s statements but indicated that it continues to investigate the numerous reports of hair growing on viagra users palms. They have said that it is unlikely that this is directly linked to the consumption of Viagra, but tied to the personal activities of patients while on the drug.
