No, I'm really not kidding, from The Australian:
Viagra could perk up jet-lagged travellers | Health | The Australian
The male impotence drug Viagra may also be useful for treating jet lag and shift work, 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 today 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.
 

Trying to access your favourite Australian websites when overseas only to discover they have been geo-blocked? Concerned about your internet privacy especially when using unsecured wifi? NordVPN will solve both these common problems.
