What Viagra Connect contains

Getting the right treatment for erectile dysfunction is important to ensure it can work as quickly and effectively as possible. It’s also important to be aware of what goes into your treatment so that you can make an informed and safe decision about what choice of medication is the right one for you.

Active ingredients

Viagra Connect is manufactured by Pfizer, the same company who manufactured the original Viagra tablet. However, unlike the original Viagra tablet, Viagra Connect is easier to acquire at a pharmacy without a prescription.

As with prescribed Viagra, the active ingredient in Viagra Connect is sildenafil. Prescribed Viagra can vary in strength from 25mg to 100mg depending on factors such as the severity of the condition. Viagra Connect is only offered in a strength of 50mg.

How does sildenafil work?

Sildenafil belongs to a group of medications known as phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE 5) inhibitor. Major erectile dysfunction treatments will use this type of medication to treat an issue, though the specific active ingredient will vary depending on each product.

Sildenafil works by relaxing the blood vessels in the penis, which better allows blood to flow to the penis when sexually stimulated. However, you should note that you may not see instant results when taking this product. If, after several instances of taking Viagra Connect, you don’t see any results then you should seek out the advice of your pharmacist or GP as there may be other underlying health issues which require treatment.

Allergy and safety

Though the active ingredient is sildenafil, it’s important to remain aware of the other ingredients in the tablet so that your safety is ensured. Talking with your pharmacist before purchasing the product will also help the pharmacist know if a treatment is suitable for you.

For example, the film coat on Viagra Connect contains lactose, so those with a severe lactose intolerance should consider alternative treatments.

Each pack will come with a list of ingredients and safety information so that you can make an informed decision as to exactly whether a treatment is safe for you.

The discussion with your pharmacist will also help you to work out if Viagra Connect will conflict with any other medications or exacerbate any other underlying health conditions. The initial assessment that is made will determine if Viagra Connect is right for you and point you in the right direction for alternative treatments or advice should you need to pursue a different form of treatment.

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, including erectile dysfunction with fast and effective relief from their symptoms.
