    A geriatric medicine specialist says more work needs to be done to prove whether Viagra could aid in the battle against Alzheimer's Disease

    Geriatrician Dr Phill Wood says it does sound a bit too good to be true.

    Wood says while the study is eye catching and credible ... it could be a bit premature to start taking the drug for Alzheimer's Disease.
