Medication for treating Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is available on the NHS. It is available on NHS online prescription only if a GP affiliated with NHS prescribes.
Until 2014, there were a few limitations on the issuing of ED treatments on the NHS; however, some of these limitations were lifted, as cheaper ED medicines became available in the market.
Following are the ED medicines available on the NHS:
- Sildenafil Citrate
- Apomorphine Hydrochloride
- Moxisylyte Hydrochloride
Amid these ED medicines, Sildenafil Citrate is one of the most broadly prescribed medicines on the NHS in England.
Please note that Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, and Spedra are not available on the NHS online prescription, except in certain circumstances.
These ED medicines are only prescribed on the NHS for men with impotence, who have or have had the history of diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), prostate cancer, spina bifida, spinal cord injury, Huntington’s disease (genetic disorder), pelvic surgery to remove tumours, prostatectomy – removal of the prostate gland, haemodialysis, or a kidney transplant surgery.
If you do not have any of the aforementioned ailments, you can still get ED medicines through a “private prescription” from your GP. This means you will have to pay for the cost of the medicine and consultation.
In the UK, it is possible to buy ED medication through the internet. You should be careful while doing so as there are many fake websites that offer counterfeit ED drugs that do not have a license issued by the MHRA.
It is always better to see your GP practice before buying ED medications online. If you choose to buy ED medication through an online pharmacy, ensure that it is registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC), the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
Pharmacy Outlet is one such online pharmacy that will fulfil your NHS online prescriptions as well as private prescriptions efficiently.
