Tuesday May 22, 07:14 AM Viagra might relieve jet-lag: study

The male impotence drug Viagra may be useful for treating jet lag and shift work as well, according to Argentine researchers who gave it to hamsters made to feel like rodent globe-trotters.
The researchers manipulated the schedule of turning lights on and off to induce jet lag in the laboratory animals, they reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Adult male hamsters given Viagra, also called sildenafil, recovered from jet lag up to 50 per cent faster than hamsters that were not given it, the researchers said.
The scientists stopped giving the hamsters the highest dose they had been using in the experiment due to its primary effect.

I refrain from further comment on the ethics of hamsters flying.

If this method of overcoming jetlag becomes popular, I expect we are going to see a huge increase in the number of "Ralph Fiennes" incidents :shock: .
