Viagra Connect 50mg (4 Tablets) - No Prescription Needed

£19.99

What is the difference between Viagra and Viagra Connect?

Both Viagra Connect and the more familiar medicine Viagra work in the same way and contain the same active ingredient; sildenafil citrate.

Just like Viagra, this medication is indicated for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (impotence) in adult men. It works by relaxing the blood vessels, enabling more blood to flow into the penis, making it easier to get an erection.

Please note, this treatment only works if you are sexually aroused. It does not cause an erection without stimulation.

Is Viagra Connect right for me?

This treatment may be right for you as long as you are not taking any medicines that may interact with Viagra, or suffer from any health conditions that may affect its suitability.

Talk to your doctor about alternative treatments and do not take this medicine if any of the following applies to you:

  • If you are allergic or sensitive to sildenafil or any of the other ingredients listed on the pack.
  • If you are taking any medicines known as nitrates (including “poppers”).
  • If you are currently taking any medicine (guanylate cyclase stimulators, such as riociguat) to treat high blood pressure in the lungs.
  • If you are currently taking ritonavir (to treat HIV).
  • If you have ever had loss of vision due to optic nerve damage or an inherited eye disease, such as retinitis pigmentosa.
  • If you have low blood pressure.
  • If you have problems with your liver, heart or blood vessels.
  • If you have a deformity of your penis, such as Peyronie’s Disease.

This medicine is also not suitable if you are younger than 18. You should only use this treatment if you suffer with erection problems.

How to get the best results from this treatment

Do not take Viagra Connect with grapefruit or grapefruit juice or with large amounts of alcohol.

The tablet usually starts to work in 30 - 60 minutes. The effect may be delayed if the tablet is taken directly after a high fat meal.

Are there any side effects?

Yes, just like all medicines, this treatment may cause side effects in some users.

Common side effects include nausea, indigestion, stuffy nose and dizziness, but may also include facial flushing and blurred vision.

It is important that you stop taking this medication and contact your doctor or nearest hospital straight away if you experience any serious side effects, including chest pains, an allergic reaction, skin reactions or rashes or seizures.

Recommended dose

The recommended dose is one tablet taken 1 - 4 hours before sexual activity.

Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water. Do not chew or crush the tablet.

Important information

Consult your doctor before use if you are taking any other medicines or if you have a health condition not mentioned in the patient information leaflet.

Always read the patient information leaflet before use.

May cause dizziness. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how your body reacts to this treatment.

Do not take more than one tablet in any 24 hour period.

This medicine must not be taken by women.

The recommended dose is one 50 mg tablet taken with water approximately one hour before sexual activity.

The maximum recommended dosing frequency is once per day. If Viagra Connect is taken with food, the onset of activity may be delayed compared to the fasted state (see section 5.2).

Patients should be advised that they may need to take Viagra Connect a number of times on different occasions (a maximum of one 50 mg tablet per day), before they can achieve a penile erection satisfactory for sexual activity. If after several attempts on different dosing occasions patients are still not able to achieve a penile erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual activity, they should be advised to consult a doctor.

Erectile dysfunction can be associated with a number of contributing conditions, e.g. hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hypercholesterolaemia or cardiovascular disease. As a result, all men with erectile dysfunction should be advised to consult their doctor within 6 months for a clinical review of potential underlying conditions and risk factors associated with erectile dysfunction (ED). If symptoms of ED have not improved after taking Viagra Connect on several consecutive occasions, or if their erectile dysfunction worsens, the patient should be advised to consult their doctor.

Cardiovascular risk factors

Since there is a degree of cardiac risk associated with sexual activity, the cardiovascular status of men should be considered prior to initiation of therapy.

Agents for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, including sildenafil, are not recommended to be used by those men who with light or moderate physical activity, such as walking briskly for 20 minutes or climbing 2 flights of stairs, feel very breathless or experience chest pain.

The following patients are considered at low cardiovascular risk from sexual activity : patients who have been successfully revascularised (e.g. via coronary artery bypass grafting, stenting, or angioplasty), patients with asymptomatic controlled hypertension, and those with mild valvular disease. These patients may be suitable for treatment but should consult a doctor before resuming sexual activity.

Patients previously diagnosed with the following must be advised to consult with their doctor before resuming sexual activity: uncontrolled hypertension, moderate to severe valvular disease, left ventricular dysfunction, hypertrophic obstructive and other cardiomyopathies, or significant arrhythmias.

Sildenafil has vasodilator properties, resulting in mild and transient decreases in blood pressure (see section 5.1). Patients with increased susceptibility to vasodilators include those with left ventricular outflow obstruction (e.g., aortic stenosis), or those with the rare syndrome of multiple system atrophy manifesting as severely impaired autonomic control of blood pressure. Men with these conditions must not use the product without consulting a doctor.

Sildenafil potentiates the hypotensive effect of nitrates (see section 4.3).

Serious cardiovascular events, including myocardial infarction, unstable angina, sudden cardiac death, ventricular arrhythmia, cerebrovascular haemorrhage, transient ischaemic attack, hypertension and hypotension have been reported post-marketing in temporal association with the use of sildenafil. Most, but not all, of these patients had pre-existing cardiovascular risk factors. Many events were reported to occur during or shortly after sexual intercourse and a few were reported to occur shortly after the use of sildenafil without sexual activity. It is not possible to determine whether these events are related directly to these factors or to other factors.

Priapism

Patients who have conditions which may predispose them to priapism (such as sickle cell anaemia, multiple myeloma or leukaemia), should consult a doctor before using agents for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, including sildenafil.

Prolonged erections and priapism have been occasionally reported with sildenafil in post-marketing experience. In the event of an erection that persists longer than 4 hours, the patient should seek immediate medical assistance. If priapism is not treated immediately, penile tissue damage and permanent loss of potency could result.

Concomitant use with other treatments for erectile dysfunction

The safety and efficacy of combinations of sildenafil with other treatments for erectile dysfunction have not been studied. Therefore the use of such combinations is not recommended.

Effects on vision

Cases of visual defects have been reported spontaneously in connection with the intake of sildenafil and other PDE5 inhibitors (see section 4.8). Cases of non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy, a rare condition, have been reported spontaneously and in an observational study in connection with the intake of sildenafil and other PDE5 inhibitors (see section 4.8). Patients should be advised that in the event of any sudden visual defect, they should stop taking Viagra Connect and consult a physician immediately (see section 4.3).

Concomitant use with CYP3A4 inhibitors

Pharmacokinetic analysis of clinical trial data indicated a reduction in sildenafil clearance when co-administered with CYP3A4 inhibitors (such as ketoconazole, itraconazole, erythromycin, cimetidine). Although, no increased incidence of adverse events was observed in these patients, they should be advised to consult a doctor before taking Viagra Connect as a 25 mg tablet may be more suitable for them (see section 4.5 for further information).

Concomitant use with alpha-blockers

Caution is advised when sildenafil is administered to patients taking an alpha-blocker, as the co-administration may lead to symptomatic hypotension in a few susceptible individuals (see section 4.5). This is most likely to occur within 4 hours post sildenafil dosing. In order to minimise the potential for developing postural hypotension, patients should be hemodynamically stable on alpha-blocker therapy prior to initiating sildenafil treatment. Thus, patients taking alpha blockers should be advised to consult their doctor before taking Viagra Connect as a 25 mg tablet may be more suitable for them. Treatment should be stopped if symptoms of postural hypotension occur, and patients should seek advice from their doctor on what to do.

Effect on bleeding

Studies with human platelets indicate that sildenafil potentiates the antiaggregatory effect of sodium nitroprusside in vitro. There is no safety information on the administration of sildenafil to patients with bleeding disorders or active peptic ulceration. Therefore the use of sildenafil is not recommended in those patients with history of bleeding disorders or active peptic ulceration, and should only be administered after consultation with a doctor.

Hepatic impairment

Patients with hepatic impairment must be advised to consult their doctor before taking Viagra Connect, since a 25 mg tablet may be more suitable for them (see section 4.2 and 5.2 for further information).

Renal impairment

Patients with severe renal impairment (creatinine clearance <30 mL/min), must be advised to consult their doctor before taking Viagra Connect, since a 25 mg tablet may be more suitable for them (see section 4.2 and 5.2 for further information).

Lactose

The film coating of the tablet contains lactose. Viagra Connect should not be administered to men with rare hereditary problems of galactose intolerance, Lapp lactase deficiency or glucose-galactose malabsorption.

Use with alcohol

Drinking excessive alcohol can temporarily reduce a man's ability to get an erection. Men should be advised not to drink large amounts of alcohol before sexual activity.
