What is Viagra Connect®?


Viagra Connect® is a treatment for Erectile Dysfunction (ED) containing 50mg of sildenafil. It is available to patients over 18 years with ED directly from pharmacy without a doctor’s prescription.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient to have sex. Erection problems can put a strain on relationships. They can also be a warning sign of a health condition or disease you might not be aware of. That’s why it’s important to take action and find a solution for your ED.

How does Viagra Connect® work?

Viagra Connect® is quickly absorbed – it takes 30–60 minutes to work. Do not take more than 1 tablet a day.

Is Viagra Connect® right for you?

  • Who it’s for: Viagra Connect® is for adult men (over 18 years of age) who have erectile dysfunction (ED).
  • Who it isn’t for: If you are a woman, a man under 18, or do not have ED, then Viagra Connect® isn’t the right treatment for you.
  • Are you taking other medicines? Some medicines can interact with Viagra Connect®, so you’ll be asked what else you might be taking before you can buy it.
  • Do you have any other health conditions? Some men will have issues with their health that make Viagra Connect® unsuitable for them. This is why you’ll be asked a few straightforward questions about your health before you can buy it.
