Price Drops Cause Sales Surge at one of the UK’s leading Online Pharmacies!

Established in 1994, Medical Specialists® Pharmacy has been catering for patients all over Britain for over 17 years, after becoming the UK’s first legal online Prescribers back in 2001.

In this time, thousands and thousands of patients across the UK have been treated for a number of conditions such as Acne, Asthma, Erectile Dysfunction, Hair Loss, Sexually Transmitted Infections and much more, helping these people to live a better quality of life with undoubtedly less stress.

Further peace of mind is offered in the next-day delivery service provided by the Pharmacy, meaning patients are not waiting around for important treatments with no clear idea of when their parcel may actually arrive to them.

After recently drastically reducing prices across a number of products and offering frequent discount codes to existing patients, it seems word has spread about this longstanding and trusted North West-based Online Pharmacy, with a recent surge in sales, as well as new patients seeking help from Medical Specialists®.

Managing Director David Bailey commented: “We are constantly reviewing our prices across the board to patients and a significant amount of our treatments have seen their prices drastically cut. On top of this, those patients that have chosen to be contacted about special offers via email will have benefited from the recent discount codes we have sent out, further increasing the amount of money saved.”

He added: “We know times are difficult for people in the present day and any money saved wherever possible is a huge bonus, so we would like to be able to give something back to our many loyal patients. Interestingly, we are also experiencing a lot of new patients coming to us, which we would hope is as a result of word of mouth. If this is the case, we know people are very happy with the care and service we provide.”

Patient care is at the core of Medical Specialists® and it is perhaps this very reason why the Pharmacy has a 5-star Trustpilot rating (9.7) and sits comfortably inside the top 10 ranked Drug and Pharmacy companies on Trustpilot.

However, if one would assume that the Pharmacy are now resting on their laurels heading into the New Year, they would be sorely mistaken!

Mr Bailey added: “Currently we are working on adding many more products for the Medical Specialists website, so it is worth checking the site regularly…from antifungal and haemorrhoids treatments to even special prescription toothpastes for the prevention of tooth decay.”

David said: “If all that wasn’t enough, we are also working on laying the foundations for a brand new website. Although our current one has served us well for a number of years, it is now the right time for a brand new lick of paint so to speak and the site would benefit from a cosmetic upgrade.  The new website will not just look pretty however, as we taken into account our patients’ feedback on certain functions and design tweaks that they would like to see, which will all come together to create a more user-friendly and efficient experience, especially on smartphones and tablets.”

Clearly these are exciting times at Medical Specialists®, with new products and even a new website in the pipeline, 2019 promises to be a special year indeed for the Pharmacy.

Firstly though, the Pharmacy will be busy dealing with a hectic Christmas period. With Christmas now fast approaching, Mr Bailey warned about the importance of patients having their medications in anticipation of the festive season, commenting: “Although the Christmas period is a joyous time of the Year for people around the country, the drop in temperatures can be havoc for those with certain conditions, such as asthma, with cold air often exacerbating asthma symptoms and it vital for asthmatics to always carry their reliever inhaler, and use their preventer inhaler daily.”

“In terms of our own Pharmacy and for patients to get their vital treatments before Christmas Day itself, we are advising that patients place consultations no later than 3.30pm on Friday 21st December, or even the day before, due to the fact there is a large amount of post being sent around the country in the run up to Christmas.”

Generic Levitra Available Soon at Medical Specialists®!

Generic LevitraDrug manufacturer Bayer’s patent on Levitra expired 31 October 2018, following in the footsteps of Pfizer’s Viagra and Lilly’s Cialis, whose patents expired in 2013 and 2017 respectively.

What does this mean for patients? Well, the first one is cheaper prices of course! When Pfizer’s patent expired 5 years ago, other well respected drug companies such as TEVA and Actavis could then manufacture Generic Sildenafil, an Erectile Dysfunction treatment that contains sildenafil, the very same active ingredient in the more expensive Viagra, and should work in the same way, but for a fraction of the cost!

What is Levitra/Vardenafil)?

The active ingredient in Levitra is known as ‘Vardenafil’, therefore you may see cheaper generic versions called ‘Generic Vardenafil’ or ‘Generic Levitra’, these are the same thing; Generic, cheaper alternatives to the branded Levitra, theoretically working in the exact same way in helping men achieve stronger, firmer erections.

Like Viagra and Cialis, Levitra is a phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitor and first entered the UK market in 2003, 5 years after Viagra and at pretty much the same time as Eli Lilly released what is now referred to as ‘the weekender’ – Cialis.

Benefits of Levitra/Vardenafil?

Whilst Viagra is generally effective for up to around 4 hours, Levitra can remain in the system for up to 5 hours, leading to increased spontaneity with your partner.

The main difference of Levitra/Vardenafil when compared against Viagra is that Levitra/Vardenafil tends to be less affected by the consumption of food or alcohol, so can be taken with meals – a major plus for those men that like to wine and dine their partners often!

What are Generic medicines?

Firstly, rest assure that Generic medicines are not poorly made ineffective substitutes for their more expensive and branded elder brothers.

By law (EU regulations), they must comprise of the very same active ingredient and have the same effect as their branded equivalent.

One thing we get asked often at Medical Specialists® is why the generic medicines sometimes look different than the brand. Although the colour and shape of the tablets may differ, together with the packing (due to different manufacturers producing their own version of the generic), the actual drug (the important bit!) must be medically identical to its branded counterpart.

Some patients refuse to want to try generic medicines, especially if they are used to a particular brand, packaging, etc., and this is completely fine of course as everybody is different.

When will Generic Levitra/Vardenafil be available?

Keep checking the Medical Specialists® website for news and updates about Generic Levitra/Vardenafil as we will be looking to offer the generic version of Levitra very soon! In the meantime of course, we still have a wide variety of different Erectile Dysfunction treatments available to suit different patient’s needs.
