It seems like the little blue pill boosts your performance not only in the bedroom but also in your workplace.

In August, new research tried to explain how Viagra could be effective at your workplace. The study backed by Pfizer found that erectile dysfunction (ED) is associated with work absenteeism and presenteeism and you do not perform well enough due to underlying health problems.

The study, published in The International Journal of Clinical Practice, found that at least 7 percent of men with ED reported work absenteeism and 22 percent of men with ED reported presenteeism.

Researchers found that most American men with ED had work productivity impairments than men who did not have ED, suggesting that ED reduced overall work productivity.

Previous studies have noted that chronic conditions such as allergies, arthritis, or depression could affect your work performance and employers can ultimately benefit from investing in treatments for such conditions.

The new study authors said, “The results of the current study further suggest the need for better management and appropriate treatment, especially among those with ED in the workforce, as the burden may prove to be a significant, under-recognized concern for patients and employers alike.”

Please note that the authors of the new study are affiliated with Pfizer that makes Viagra, one of the blockbuster ED drugs. And the findings of the study are released just when Viagra has been losing its ground and the market is flooded with its cheaper generic versions.

Upjohn, a division of Pfizer that manufactures Viagra, reported a nearly 10 percent drop in sales in the United States earlier this year. Moreover, Pfizer’s Viagra patent had expired, making way for generic medications that contain the same drug sildenafil at a competitive price. The new study suggests Viagra could help consumers who want to perform well at their workplace. However, it still does not appear to have entered the market of the work-related performance enhancers.
