Men suffering from erectile dysfunction can get Sildenafil on the NHS online prescription in England, although experts have advised only four tablets per month.
The Pfizer’s Viagra patent expired in the June 2013 in the UK; hence, the supply cost of Sildenafil (generic version) has been greatly reduced. Since 1999, Sildenafil (Viagra) availability on the NHS has been subjected to certain limitations.
To be more precise, Sildenafil (Viagra) was only available to men who suffered from erectile dysfunction caused by the following conditions:
- prostate cancer and removal of the prostate gland
- kidney failure or kidney transplant
- severe pelvic injuries or radical pelvic surgery
- spinal cord injuries
- spina bifida
- Parkinson’s disease
- multiple sclerosis
- severe distress
The price of generic versions of Sildenafil has significantly dropped by 93%. It benefited not only to the direct customer but also to the NHS.
Due to the lower cost of the NHS prescribing Sildenafil, the Department of Health carried out a consultation in early 2014. The consultation sought responses from NHS sign, GPs, pharmacists, drug manufacturers and MHS clinical commissioning group.
Nearly 80% of respondents supported making of the medicine widely available on the NHS. This helped a huge number of males suffer from erectile dysfunction to seek medical attention and get Sildenafil on the NHS online prescription at lower cost.
The department will try to make Sildenafil more widely available through the NHS. However, restrictions are still applied to the branded medicines such as Viagra, Cialis, Levitra and Spedra.
To safeguard your health, it is important to visit a GP, get the correct diagnosis and buy Sildenafil from a legitimate local or online pharmacy, even if you buy it through the NHS online prescription.
Men often inadvertently use unregulated medicines or illicit services found on internet, potentially putting a great risk on their health, personal information and payment card details.
Patients can opt for reputed online doctor service (PharmaDoctor) and online pharmacy service (Pharmacy Outlet) to get Sildenafil through NHS online prescription.
Pharmacy Outlet advises patients to consult their doctor about their ED and appropriate treatment.
