Viagra for your Valentine

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- Hallmark cards, red roses and chocolates aren't the only things in demand as we head toward Valentine's Day next Monday.  How about some Viagra?

A new study shows the demand for erectile dysfunction drugs increases the week before Valentine's Day.

Last year, 1.34 million Viagra pills were prescribed the week of February 5th.

Overall, the week before Valentine's Day is among the top weeks of the year for demand for all male enhancing drugs.  With patients requesting a total of almost three-million doses, that's 100-thousand more doses than in an average week.

One doctor says the formula is simple.  Valentine's Day is the one day in the 365-day calendar where interest in intimacy and romance is memorialized for both men and women.
