Wednesday, June 24, 2020 – Majority of Kenyan men are addicted to sex enhancing drugs according to a survey.
The survey conducted by Dr. Peter Ongwae, a Pharmacist, indicates that there is a sharp increase in the number of sex enhancing drugs (SEDs) being sold in the country.
“Within a period of five years, the number of registered sex enhancing drugs (SEDs) increased by over 500 per cent,” Ongwae observed.
Some of these SEDs are outselling popular painkillers like Panadol which is a serious concern given serious underlying health problems that come with abusing these SEDs.
From the report, 55 per cent of the study participants were aged between 30 and 49.
The report further indicated that over 80% of Kenyan men above 40 years of age suffer from some form of sexual dysfunction hence reliance on sex enhancing drugs.
According to a recent study on side effects of Viagra, which is the widely used sex enhancing drug, it has been implicated in at least 1,824 deaths mostly from heart attacks.
In addition, Viagra has been found to have caused or significantly contributed to at least 2,500 nonfatal heart attacks and other potentially serious heart problems, and more than 25,000 other potentially serious side effects, among them: mini-strokes, vision loss, and hearing loss.
