Increased Viagra Use By Youth At The Coast Raises Health Concerns.

Est: 2 Minutes Read

There has been rising health concerns in the Coastal region following reports that youth aged 23 years and below are increasingly visiting pharmacies to buy Viagra over the counter.

According to sources, the demand for the pill is on the increase amongst young men and women with chemists registering high sales between Wednesdays and Saturdays.

“Our sales spike from Wednesday till Saturdays. Some of the clients are tourists, who buy them here cheaply and resell in their countries. Many others get them for use here in Kenya.

“Women from Nairobi buy the most Viagra, although averagely, men make most buys, especially in the areas of Diani,” stated a chemist attendant identified as Doreen.

A single pill is said to cost between Ksh 100 and Ksh 1ooo in the chemists though the price varies with the type.

Reports have further indicated that most of the clients who frequent chemists to buy the pill are women although it is not yet established whether they use the pills themselves.

According to Healthline Viagra is a powerful drug that increases blood flow to the penis to ensure a sustained erection. It has serious side effects if used without the prescription of a qualified health expert.

Headache, flushing, upset stomach, abnormal vision, stuffy nose, back pain, muscle pain, nausea, rashes are examples of the drug’s side effects.

This comes few days after the Kenya Film and Classification Board (KFCB) in collaboration with the Directorate OF Criminal Investigation (DCI) opened an investigation into increased cases of bestiality at the coast.

KFCB boss Ezekiel Mutua claimed that some of the tourists come in intending to record youth engaging in sexual activities with animals.

Psychiatrist Dr.Edwin Muinga, however, blames the recent surge in internet use as well as the change of Lifestyle.

The doctor warns that those using the pill yet have underlying conditions such as heart conditions, Kidney problems, psychiatric issues, and high blood sugar are posing serious health risks since the drug should only be used after a prescription.
