How Viagra Connect works

Erectile dysfunction is a common ailment that is likely to affect men at some point in their lives.

It’s important to know how and where to gain access to treatment, as well as how these treatments work. With this knowledge you’re much more well equipped to make an informed and safe decision on their suitability for your situation.

How Viagra Connect works

The active ingredient in Viagra Connect is 50mg of Sildenafil. This belongs to a group of medicines known as phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE 5) inhibitors.

Sildenafil works by relaxing the blood vessels in the penis and helping to make the body more responsive to sexual stimulation. This helps to increase blood flow to the penis when sexually stimulated, which in turn helps with achieving and maintaining an erection.

You should keep in mind that Sildenafil doesn’t increase sex drive, but simply makes achieving and maintaining erections easier. If you find yourself struggling with other sexual health issues, such as premature ejaculation or a suddenly decreased or non-existent sex drive, you should speak to your GP or pharmacist to see what other treatments may be available and beneficial.

Acquiring Viagra Connect

Acquiring Viagra Connect works differently to acquiring Viagra. While you would need to have an appointment with your GP to discuss your erectile dysfunction for Viagra, Viagra Connect needs nothing more than a short questionnaire or chat with a pharmacist to ensure that the product is right for you. You can buy it over the counter in pharmacies without the need for a prescription.

Viagra Connect is a standard 50mg tablet, while prescribed Viagra can vary in strength from 25-100mg. The easily-acquired Viagra Connect gives men a treatment avenue for erectile dysfunction if they’re unable to find a convenient time for a doctor’s appointment or if they aren’t comfortable in discussing their intimate health with their GP.

Taking Viagra Connect

Viagra Connect is administered as a tablet, simply take one tablet with water around an hour before sexual activity. You should take steps not to exceed more than one tablet a day. If you do it is advised that you seek the advice of your GP or local A&E as soon as possible to avoid any potential complications.

You should also be aware that it may require a number of doses before the treatment fully takes effect. If you don’t see any results after several different doses across a number of days then it is worth seeking the advice of your doctor to check for any other underlying health issues.

At Chemist-4-U we aim to provide a reliable pharmacy service which is quick and discrete, offering people suffering from a range of potentially embarrassing conditions with fast and effective relief from their symptoms.
