Who prescribes Viagra Connect

Many men experience erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives. For many this can be a particularly embarrassing condition. When looking into ways to counteract erectile dysfunction, many men find that Viagra is a suitable treatment for their needs.

However, it may feel a little more daunting to visit a doctor and talk frankly about such an intimate issue. Viagra Connect may be more suitable in situations like this. So, who prescribes Viagra Connect and how is it different for patients?

How to access treatment?

If you’ve found that you’ve recently begun struggling to either achieve or maintain an erection, you may well find that you benefit greatly from taking erectile dysfunction treatments.

You may also be dealing with a range of other conditions or circumstances that are affecting your ability to maintain an erection. This could be anything from extreme anxiety and stress, to obesity and cardiovascular disease.

Traditionally access to treatment required arranging an appointment with your doctor and discussing your problems openly. Viagra Connect functions differently in that it has been certified for over the counter sale, meaning that you simply need to visit your pharmacist for treatment.

Why doesn’t Viagra Connect need a prescription?

Viagra Connect is different to prescribed Viagra in that it comes in only a single strength – 50mg. Prescribed Viagra can range in strengths from 25 to 100mg depending on the severity of the condition.

The UK Government allowed Viagra Connect to be sold over-the-counter as a result of a reassuring assessment on the safety of Viagra Connect, as well as advice from the Commission of Human Medicines and a positive public consultation from early 2017.

How does this benefit me?

Some men may feel too embarrassed to visit a GP and discuss their erectile dysfunction. It’s hoped that making Viagra Connect easily available from a pharmacist will greatly reduce the stigma attached to the condition. It also means that those with a busy lifestyle who struggle to find time for a doctor’s appointment are still able to seek a treatment option before they feel the need to schedule a consultation.

Because Viagra Connect is provided by Pfizer, the manufacturers of the original sildenafil Viagra tablet, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality product that’s been produced to a consistent high standard.

It’s believed that making an erectile dysfunction treatment more easily and safely accessible in this way will also reduce people sourcing their treatments through unlicensed or illegal vendors. This in turn will help ensure patient safety, as it guarantees that a treatment is both 100% safe and genuine.

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.
