Has anyone heard anything about viagra as a trial drug for Alzheimer’s? My mom’s MD mentioned this and recommend chatting with her neurologist.

Viagra may reduce levels of oxidative stress.  Whether this is enough to slow down the progession of Alzheimer's disease will be determined once a trial is completed.

I did hear about this, and it can be true because Viagra has a strong influence over the human body and the processes inside it.

Viagra may not be helpful in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease after all:

Results from the National Institutes of Health’s Drug Repurposing for Effective Alzheimer’s Medicines (DREAM) study show that sildenafil (Viagra) and tadalafil (Cialis) may not be suitable candidates for treating dementia. These findings are contrary to similar, previously reported research from another group. In this new study, NIH researchers and collaborators used data from Medicare beneficiaries and determined the medications sildenafil and tadalafil do not reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. The study was funded by the NIH National Institute on Aging (NIA) and results published in Brain CommunicationsIdentifying existing drugs that may also be repurposed for dementia could potentially get treatments to those in need faster than the traditional drug discovery process.,reported%

I read about Viagra and how it can affect patients with various diseases. I even wanted to [buy viagra online for my Mom, but then found the information that Medicare beneficiaries determined that sildenafil and tadalafil don't reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Though I haven't discussed it with a doctor yet.
