Long QT Syndrome: Can I take medication?

People with Long QT syndrome or other causes of a long QT interval are predisposed to getting certain types of dangerous arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythm).

They should not take medications that will lengthen the QT interval further, which would further increase their risk for dangerous arrhythmias.

Levitra is one of these medications that should not be taken by people with a lengthened QT.

However, Viagra, Cialis, and sildenafil can be taken by patients with a long QT interval provided that they are stable and have not had any recent arrhythmias.
