There were 38 reports of blindness among Viagra users (Six patients had vision loss within 24 hours after use of Viagra), four among Cialis users and one among Levitra users. Eli Lilly & Co. (NYSE: LLY) and ICOS Corp. (NASDAQ: ICOS), the makers of Cialis, have already added a warning about possible vision loss to the drug’s label. The FDA has said it is in discussions with Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) the maker of Viagra, and the makers of Levitra, Bayer AG (NYSE: BAY), GlaxoSmithKline PLC (NYSE: GSK) and Schering Plough CP (NYSE: SGP) about warnings on those drugs’ labels.
