Viagra Saved Baby's Life.

This baby owed its life to viagra. No, not the way you think:

Lewis Goodfellow was born at 24 weeks weighing just 1lb 8oz. One of his lungs had failed and not enough oxygen was able to get into his bloodstream.

Doctors at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary then tried Sildenafil, also known under the trade name of Viagra, and Lewis is now home with his parents.

The drug opened up tiny blood vessels in the baby's lungs.

This drug is used in hospitals all over the world for pulmonary hypertension. I believe it is even in the guidelines. It was originally designed to control blood pressure, but they found in the trials that everyone was getting hard ons. The rest is history.
