When it comes to getting the right treatment for your erectile dysfunction, even when you feel like you know what medication you want, there is still the question of where and how to get it.

For the best Viagra Connect service for you, it helps to consider price, quantity, strength, and alternatives. Get the information you need to make the best choice for you.

What’s the best way to get Viagra Connect?

The biggest benefit to recent UK law changes around Viagra Connect, is that you can now get it without a prescription. This makes it easier for a lot people to treat their ED.

Get it from a licensed source – it’s very important to only ever get licensed (regulated) versions of the medication. These are only available at UK pharmacies, or by using regulated online services, like Zava. Buying ED medication anywhere else can be unsafe, dangerous to your health, and unreliable as a form of treatment.

The advantages of using an online doctor service to get your Viagra Connect can include:

  • A quick, easy and confidential service
  • Not having to speak to anyone in person about your ED treatment (whilst still having the option to discuss your needs with a trained doctor)
  • Having the option of buying Viagra Connect in bulk, making it cheaper

The advantages of going into a pharmacy to buy your Viagra Connect are:

  • Having the option to discuss your needs with a pharmacist in person
  • Ease, if you already regularly use your local pharmacy when shopping

Four-tablet packs of Viagra Connect have a recommended retail price of £19.99, and for eight-tablet packs it's £34.99. Discuss your options with your pharmacist or doctor for further advice about whether Viagra Connect is the right ED medication for you.

What’s the best kind of Viagra Connect to buy?

The quality of the medication shouldn’t change – Viagra Connect should all be exactly the same, provided that you buy it from a regulated service, like your local UK pharmacy or by using a licensed online service, like Zava.

Regulated medications are best – buying your medication from an unregulated service is dangerous and can be damaging to your health. You have no way of knowing what your medication will be made of, or if it even contains the same medical ingredients as Viagra Connect.

There’s no ‘best dosage’ to choose – Viagra Connect only comes in one dosage of one sildenafil citrate 50mg tablet per day. Sildenafil is the generic name for the better-known drug Viagra. With Viagra Connect, you don’t have the option of increasing your dosage, as you should not use more than one tablet per day.

You can choose a pack size that’s best – even though there is no variety in dosage, Viagra Connect is available to buy in a few pack sizes; 4, 8, 12, 16, and 28 tablet packs. As usual, buying bigger packs of medication will work out slightly cheaper than buying smaller pack sizes more often. You may want to buy a small pack size to try out first, but it can take some people up to 8 doses before they get the full effect.

You would need to try other products for alternative doses of sildenafil – if you have already been assessed by a licensed nurse or doctor, and are aware that you typically need a higher dosage of ED medication, then your best option will be to source your medication the conventional way – by visiting your local GP surgery for an appointment to discuss your ED, or through an online doctor service like Zava. On prescription, you can get a variety of dosages to suit your needs.

Has Viagra Connect got the best chance of working?

Yes, compared to similar medications that don’t contain Sildenafil – Viagra Connect contains Sildenafil, the unbranded (generic) version of the drug popularly known as just ‘Viagra’. Sildenafil is widely proven to be a safe and effective medical treatment for ED.

Treatments work better for different people – you may have to try a few treatment options before you find the one that works best for you. Other erectile dysfunction medication similar to Viagra Connect include:

  • Viagra or Sildenafil – these both contain the same active ingredient as Viagra Connect
  • Cialis or Tadalafil
  • Spedra
  • Levitra

Other non-medical treatment options for ED include:

  • Penis (vacuum) pumps or penis rings
  • Counselling or CBT
  • Penile implants

Combining Viagra Connect with lifestyle changes works best – to get the most out of any form of ED treatment, you will have the best chance of success if you combine your treatment with the following lifestyle changes:

  • Healthy eating and weight loss (if overweight)
  • General exercise
  • Pelvic floor exercises (to improve the muscles used for erections)
  • Drinking less alcohol
  • Trying to quit smoking

Is Viagra Connect the best treatment available?

There is no ‘best treatment’ for everyone – whether or not Viagra Connect is the best treatment available for you will depend upon your individual medical needs and lifestyle choices.

Viagra Connect is the only prescription-free option – this is out of all licensed medical erectile dysfunction treatment available in the UK. This means that if you would prefer to buy your medication over-the-counter, without having to have an appointment with your GP to discuss it, Viagra Connect could be the best treatment available for you.

Other factors to consider when choosing erectile dysfunction treatment are:

  • Price – generic versions of medication, like Sildenafil and Tadalafil, are usually cheaper than branded ones
  • Lifestyle – if you have a busy lifestyle, you might not have time to visit your GP or pharmacy in-person, and would find it easier to order medication online
  • Personal fit – certain forms of ED treatment will work better for some users, and cause more/less side effects than others. Finding the ‘best treatment available’ for you could involve a certain amount of trial and error

Is Viagra Connect right for me?

Viagra Connect could be the right erectile dysfunction treatment for you if:

  • You are over the age of 18
  • You are experiencing problems related to ED
  • You want to buy your medication without a prescription

Viagra Connect is not right for everyone – it is not to be used by anyone:

  • Under the age of 18
  • With liver failure, severe cardiovascular disorders or at high cardiovascular risk
  • Who is allergic to the listed ingredients
  • Who takes drugs recreationally (for a non-medical use)
  • Who takes amyl nitrates (poppers) as this can cause a serious drug reaction
  • Who is currently taking another form of medical treatment for erectile dysfunction

The best way to tell is with an assessment – the only way to properly tell whether Viagra Connect is right for you to use is with a thorough assessment by your nurse or GP. Visit your local GP surgery or discuss treatment options with your local pharmacist if you are unsure about whether or not it is safe for you to use.

Trying it out will help you decide – if you take Viagra Connect properly and it doesn’t help treat your erectile dysfunction, or if you ever experience any severe or painful side effects as a result of taking it, then it is not right for you. Seek immediate medical assistance for any severe side effects, and discuss alternative treatment options with your GP.
