Some Florida babies are on the "little blue pill"

The erectile dysfunction drug has a different effect on these infants. Viagra allows more blood to flow into the infants' lungs, and it helps improve breathing in the young patients, doctors say.

They call it a wonder drug for babies born with pulmonary hypertension.

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