What is Viagra Connect?

Viagra Connect is part of the manufacturer company Pfizer linked to the classic Viagra brand. It contains the same active ingredient as Viagra; the phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE 5) inhibitor Sildenafil. As Viagra Connect is the same as Viagra, it also has the same benefits. This includes maintaining an erection for up to 4 hours and working within 60 minutes of digestion. It will also look the same, the difference is;

  • Viagra Connect is limited to a dosage of 50mg only, which is the ideal starting dosage when first buying.
  • It is also the first P MED available for ED – Erectile Dysfunction in the UK, meaning you can purchase it without a doctor’s prescription.

It’s important to note that a medical professional will still need to review certain medical details before purchase to ensure it isn’t dangerous to your health. This includes information regarding your heart and blood pressure and will be 100% confidential. You can begin the consultation process here.

Is Viagra Connect safe?

Viagra Connect is a safe treatment and has been registered and regulated through all UK governing bodies and pharmaceutical licenses. Further information on Viagra Connect is available on the NHS website.

Is Viagra Connect available without a doctor’s prescription?

You do not require a doctor’s prescription to buy Viagra Connect. This is available to buy online.

How does Viagra Connect work?

Viagra Connect relaxes the blood vessels in your penis so more blood can flow into it. That means when you are sexually aroused you get and keep an erection hard enough for sex. Viagra Connect is available in a 50mg dosage.

How do I take Viagra Connect?

You only get an erection when sexually aroused over this time – you will not have an erection continually for 4 hours. Tablets should be swallowed whole with a glass of water.

You can only take one tablet at a time, and this should not exceed more than one pill within 24 hours.

Viagra Connect is taken in the same way as classic Viagra. Once you’ve swallowed one pill, it may take up to 60 minutes to take full effect and this may last for up to 4 hours. This does depend on the individual, but this is the case for most men.

How long does Viagra Connect take to work?

Viagra Connect is taken in the same way as classic Viagra. Once you’ve swallowed one pill, it may take up to 60 minutes to take full effect and this may last for up to 4 hours. This does depend on the individual, but this is the case for most men.

How to make Viagra Connect the most effective?

There are ways to encourage Viagra Connect to work to its fullest. These are lifestyle changes and self-help techniques that any man can do:

  • Avoid heavy and/or fatty meals – this means the tablet will take longer to absorb at a lower effect.
  • Do not drink grapefruit juice – Grapefruit can interact negatively with PDE 5 inhibitors, causing side effects.
  • Avoid excessive alcohol use – This can affect any man with or without erectile dysfunction so limiting intake can help Viagra Connect work.

What precautions/interactions should I be aware of when taking Viagra Connect?

Viagra Connect without prescription is only available for men over the age of 18 who have erectile dysfunction (when this occurs the majority of the time). It is also not suitable for women, or for individuals interested in increasing their libido (sex drive).

The precautions of Viagra Connect are very similar to classic as well as other erectile dysfunction treatments:

  • History of sight problems with yourself or in your family history
  • Conditions associated with your kidneys or liver
  • Serious cardiovascular conditions
  • Serious chest pains (especially during exercising)
  • Experience breathing problems
  • High and/or uncontrollable blood pressure
  • If you have or have had sickle-cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia

Like other erectile dysfunction medications, you must be wary of taking too much Viagra Connect or mixing it with other ED medications. At least 24 hours should have passed before changing to a different impotence treatment. Other medications that may cause unwanted side effects of Viagra Connect include:

  • Alpha-blockers
  • Nitrates
  • CYP3A4 inhibitors
  • Guanylate cyclase stimulators

At your doctor’s/pharmacist’s discretion, you may still be able to take Viagra Connect, especially if your condition is extremely mild. To find out more, you can begin a consultation.

What side effects are commonly associated with Viagra Connect?

Viagra Connect has the same side effects as Viagra. Side effects of Viagra Connect include;

  • headache
  • facial flushing
  • hot flushes
  • indigestion issues
  • upset stomach
  • blocked nose
  • nausea (vomiting)
  • dizziness or light-headedness
  • blurred vision

If you experience a continual and prolonged erection (exceeding 4 hours) otherwise known as ‘priapism’, you must seek medical attention. The same goes if you experience symptoms of an allergic reaction.

If you experience side effects, you can try a lower dosage of 25mg, however, this is only available in classic Viagra at this time so you will need a doctor’s approval.

Can I Buy Viagra Connect online?

Once you have completed a consultation form you are able to buy Viagra connect online in the UK. When buying Viagra Online you will require a prescription to be authorized by our prescriber. However, when buying Viagra connect online in the UK this is not the case.

Should I tell my GP?

If you haven’t taken erectile dysfunction medication before, it is advised to tell your doctor, as this may be a symptom of another condition such as high blood pressure or cardiovascular disease. Your doctor will also need to know if you are required to take any other medication that could react negatively with Viagra Connect.

If you are taking another erectile dysfunction treatment that is a lower dosage than 50mg for a particular reason, it is advised to consult your doctor beforehand.
