Add Viagra

Add Viagra to the 'do not drink after using' list. No interaction in the pharma sense, but alcohol can keep some men from climax - and that in turn lead to emergency room visits as per the Viagra warning label. BTW - 4 hours is way too long to wait, as most ER's do not regard the problem as first tier.
