Viagra To Help With Jet Lag?

Wed May 23, 2007 1:49 am

This article discusses recent studies on rats/mice to see if small doses of the well know drug Viagra can help with jet lag. In the tests, the doses are reduced so one doesn't get a inappropiate woodie but something in the way the drug works may help with sleep/wake cycles.

This was on here yesterday, but for some unknown reason I can't find it today? Had some great posts associated with the thread also, did the Viagra police get it or what?

It's not that the jet lag is relieved, its just that I suddenly that isn't what I'm paying attention to!

It was a study made by the Universidad de Quilmes in Argentina.
Apparently, some components of the "Viagra", help to keep the circadian rhythm "normal".
So, it may help on jet-lag and insomnia.

Would they relabel it and sell it in the nauseous section for the public?

I just hope that I don't need to use the lavatories and I'm stuck in the window seat and the dude in the middle or the aisle took Viagra!  Sad
