Product Details
Side Effects

Please note, we only supply this medication to patients based in the UK. This is because it should be stored in a refrigerator (2°C - 8°C). Unopened sachets may be kept out of the refrigerator by the patient, at a temperature below 25°C for up to 3 days prior to use.

What is Vitaros?

Vitaros is a new topical application prescription medication for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. It contains the active ingredient, alprostadil. Alprostadil is classified as a prostaglandin. It is a vasodilator, which works by dilating or widening the blood vessels to increase the flow of blood to the penis. This helps the penis become erect.

Please note potential irritable Side Effects (please see Side Effects)

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or of childbearing potential should not be exposed to Vitaros and therefore it is recommended to also use a condom.

What are the advantages?

Oral phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors (PDE-5) are usually offered to men for erectile dysfunction, unless they cannot take them. Vitaros provides an alternative therapy for men who either cannot take or who do not get a satisfactory erection with PDE-5 inhibitors.

How to use?

how to use vitaros

Hold the tip of the penis in one hand in an upright position and manoeuvre the skin to widen its opening. Take the AccuDose with the other hand and position the tip of the container over the opening of the penis.

Do not insert the tip into the opening of the penis. Push the plunger down slowly, taking about 5 to 10 seconds to expel all the cream. Continue to hold the penis upright for about 30 seconds so that the cream can penetrate. Some cream may be left around the edge of the opening of the penis, and this can be rubbed into the skin. Do not use the contents of another AccuDose container to make up the dose.

Finally, replace the protective cap on the container before returning it to its foil sachet and wash your hands. The erection occurs within 5 to 30 minutes after applying Vitaros cream. The effect will last for about 1-2 hours but this varies between men.
