Is using Viagra a mortal sin?

I would think that using viagra would be sinful. I have never heard the churches position on the subject.

Viagra is medication prescribed to treat a physical dysfunction. Used as such it is not immoral. But, as with any drug, excessive use or abuse is immoral. “The *use of drugs * inflicts very grave damage on human health and life. Their use, except on strictly therapeutic grounds, is a grave offense” (Catechism, 2291).
