Doctors at All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida are prescribing Viagra to sick infants suffering from lung problems.The drug relaxes the arteries in the lungs and allows better blood flow in young patients.

Since babies can't pop the little blue pill, pharmacists have to crush it and give it to them in a liquid form.

Doctors say Viagra does carry some risk for babies. If the levels are too high it can cause their blood pressure to drop.
