Viagra Goes Over the Counter! Viagra Connect Finally Arrives

viagra connectOne of the most popular and effective erectile dysfunction (ED) medications of the last 20 years has just become all the more popular after being made available to buy over the counter.

‘The little blue pill’ Viagra can now be bought without the need for a Doctor’s prescription, meaning blokes around the country can visit their local pharmacy and buy the treatment, a treatment which has put the passion and spark back into millions of relationships across the globe since it burst into the market two decades ago.

Available to males aged over 18 who are medically fit enough to have sex, ‘Viagra Connect’ is the name given to the new over the counter version, with little to differentiate it between its elder counterpart Viagra.

Pfizer produce both Viagra and Viagra Connect, and the only noticeable change in appearance is that Viagra Connect tablets have ‘V50’ stamped onto the side, whilst Pfizer’s Viagra tablets have ‘VGR’ followed by 25/50/100, according to the dosage.

One major advantage of the Viagra Connect will be lower cost of the tablets in comparison to Viagra. This means Medical Specialists Pharmacy® will soon be able to offer this ground-breaking ED treatment to men at a cheaper price than Viagra.

However, for those men who are planning to pop to their local pharmacy believing they can simply and quickly pick a box of Viagra Connect off the shelf like it is a chocolate bar or chewing gum, think again!

Unfortunately, you will still have go up to the counter at your local Pharmacy and speak to somebody about getting Viagra whilst other customers are within earshot, a daunting prospect for many men to say the least! Also, this is not so different than having to go to the Doctors and ask for ED medication, something some men are not comfortable doing for various reasons.

Viagra and Viagra Connect both contain the active ingredient Sildenafil, an ingredient which Pharmacists will still need to verify is safe for you to take. Over an online consultation, you can answer relevant questions about your medical details and the Pharmacist will check this, but walking into a pharmacy means you will most likely then need to be taken to one side in the pharmacy as the Pharmacist will need to check if you:

  • Are taking medicines called nitrates for chest pain.
  • Have had an allergic reaction to Sildenafil or any other medicines in the past.
  • Have a serious heart or liver problem.
  • Have recently had a stroke or a heart attack.
  • Have low blood pressure.
  • Have a rare inherited eye disease, such as retinitis pigmentosa.

As mentioned before, at Medical Specialists Pharmacy®, these checks are carried out by a registered pharmacist after you have completed at online consultation from the comfort of your own home and the potential for the embarrassment factor is taken away!

Another minor caveat to think about with the Viagra Connect is that it is only available in the 50mg dose, in either a 4 or 8 tablet pack. This is typically the starting dose for the drug, but many men will then want to try 100mg if they are having little success with 50mg.

However, Viagra is generally very effective for the majority of men that have tried it, and it is believed to be effective in about two-thirds of cases.

It works by aiding blood flow to the penis by relaxing the blood vessels, resulting in firmer and better erections for sexual intercourse. There is typically a timeframe of between 30 and 60 minutes for the drug to become effective, and should be active in the body for up to 4 hours…plenty of time for some spontaneous fun!

An estimated one in five men suffer from erectile problems, which works out at around 4.3million British men.

Many of these men used to suffer in silence before erectile dysfunction medications became more accepted and the condition was recognised as a treatable genuine health problem, and Viagra Connect has been welcomed with open arms by many health chiefs who hope it will reduce the stigma associated with ED.

You can buy Viagra Connect from Medical Specialists Pharmacy® in the coming weeks, so make sure to keep checking our website for exciting updates about the product! In the mean time we still have other incredibly popular treatments available such as Pfizer’s Viagra, Cialis, Levitra and much more.
