Product Description

How does Viagra and Sildenafil work?

Viagra (Sildenafil) helps men to get and maintain an erection when sexually stimulated and/or excited. The medicine relaxes the blood vessels in the penis which results in more blood flowing to the penis when you are sexually excited.

How do I take it?

You should take Viagra (Sildenafil) approximately 1 hour before planning to have intercourse. Within a window of between 30 minutes and 4 hours after you take the medicine, it will be easier to keep and maintain an erection when you are sexually excited. If you take this medicine after a meal with a high fat content it may take a little longer to start working. This medicine will only work when you are sexually excited. You won’t get an erection just by taking Viagra (Sildenafil).


The standard recommended dose for Viagra (Sildenafil) is 50mg and this will be suitable for most people.  If this dose is not effective, you can try 100mg and if 50mg gives you side effects you can also reduce the dose to 25mg tablets.

You must not take more than 100mg daily of Sildenafil/ Viagra. Clinical trials have been conducted in patients taking up to 200mg sildenafil and it was found that ‘doses of 200mg did not result in increased efficacy but did increase the incidence of adverse reactions (headache, flushing, dizziness, dyspepsia, nasal congestion, and altered vision).’

In addition, in patients taking more than 100mg daily, there have been reports of rhabdomyolysis (a breakdown in skeletal muscle tissue the byproducts of which can lead to kidney failure), visual perception changes, vertebral artery dissection (a tear in the artery supplying blood to the brain), heart attacks and aggressive behaviour.

If the 100mg strength doesn’t work for you, there may be alternatives you can try and we recommend that you call us for a free consultation with our pharmacist or doctor to discuss any underlying conditions you may have. We recommend that all men taking medicine for erectile dysfunction have regular tests for blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and hormone imbalances. For instance, it may be that by fixing a hormone imbalance such as testosterone, your Viagra medication will be even more effective.

In addition, drug manufacturers do not advise patients to split tablets in half to get the correct dosage as they cannot guarantee that the active ingredient will be distributed evenly throughout the tablet.  For instance, if you cut a 100mg tablet in two, you may find that you get 80mg in one half of the tablet and 20mg in the other half leading to either an overdose (increased risk of side effects) or a suboptimal dose (the medication may not work).

It is important that you choose the correct dose for you. If you wish to talk to our pharmacist or doctor about this, please contact us in the pharmacy on 01625 460621 or email [email protected]

Side Effects

Viagra (Sildenafil) is normally well tolerated, however, side effects can include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea

Side effects normally subside after a few hours, however, if you experience a prolonged or painful erection (longer than 4 hours), then you must contact your doctor immediately.

Drug interactions

There are a number of medicines which interact with Sildenafil/ Viagra. For an exhaustive list please see the patient information leaflet (see section below) or call us in the pharmacy to discuss your specific situation. The main drug interactions are listed here:

Recreational drugs such as ‘poppers’ or amyl nitrate
Alpha blockers used for urinary retention or blood pressure problems (eg Flomax or Cardura)
Anti- arrhythmic drugs such as disopyramide
Antibiotics such as erythromycin
Antifungals such as itraconazole
Antivirals such as drugs used to treat HIV
Calcium channel blockers to treat blood pressure and angina such as amlodipine
Dapoxetine (Priligy – used to treat premature ejaculation)

Please do not take Sildenafil/Viagra if you have taken any of the above drugs within the last 60 days without first consulting with either us in the Pharmacy ([email protected] / 01625 460621) or via email with our doctor [email protected]

**We advise not to take Sildenafil/Viagra with grapefruit juice as the blood concentration of Sildenafil will possibly be increased resulting in side effects.

Even now we’re in the year 2016, there is still an undeniable social stigma surrounding weight. This can be seen in schools, where ostensibly ‘harmless’ playground jibes associated with weight are far too commonplace.

It can be seen in the workplace and even within friendship circles, often coated as ‘banter’. Wentworth Miller, an actor who starred as the lead character in the hit series ‘Prison Break’, was subject to a meme that surfaced on social media, appearing to ridicule his weight gain. Miller responded to the jibes with a brave and heartfelt statement on his official website, detailing how he turned to food as a source of comfort during his time battling with depression.

For many, food is a source of escape, a relief from the everyday demands of life. If weight gain is something you struggle with, this is nothing at all to be ashamed or embarrassed about. Throughout the course of this article, we will aim to look in more detail at the psychological effects associated with being overweight.

When scrolling through the Facebook news feed, it is likely that you will encounter various banal advertisements. Many of these will be centered around ways of achieving the ‘perfect body’. The chances are, at least from my own experience, such advertisements will be accompanied by captions such as ‘Lose weight FAST using these top tips’.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of these adverts are extremely misleading, and only serve to compound misery on those who are already struggling with their weight. The celebrity culture that exists within society puts pressure on people to have toned, slim bodies, and falling short of this Hollywood image often leads to insecurity.

PsychologicalSFWInterestingly, a recent study carried out by the National Obesity Observatory found that the ‘perception of being obese appears to be more predictive of mental disorders than actual obesity in adults and children’. This goes some way to showing that the psychological effects of being overweight are based on individual perception.

Two individuals could weight exactly the same amount, but the psychological effects could be completely different. If you find you are regularly suffering from low mood and this is affecting your sleep, appetite or leaving you unable to perform daily activities, it is important that you visit a doctor.

Being overweight can place a psychological burden on people of all ages. Studies show that children as young as six years old may link excess weight with negative stereotypes, with some going as far to believe that an overweight child is less likeable. On top of this, emotional comfort can often be sought from food when suffering from a negative mindset. This can lead to a vicious cycle whereby an individual feels down because of their weight, leading them to eat comfort foods and pile on more weight.

You may be wondering if there are products available that can help you lose weight directly. It is important to recognize that there are many fraud websites that will claim to sell weight loss products, but such products could be illegitimate and potentially harmful. INTERPOL, the world’s police organization, seized millions of illegitimate weight loss products as part of an operation targeting bogus medicines.

If the weight loss product you are trying to buy doesn’t require a prescription, then you should approach it with extreme caution. Prescriptions are issued by doctors and then checked by pharmacists, ensuring that the medicines are safe to be taken. Counterfeit products that don’t require prescriptions are therefore not subject to the same rigorous safety checks as prescription medicines, and hence can be potentially harmful.

Orlistat is a product licensed to help aid weight loss. Commonly known by its brand name ‘Xenical’, Orlistat 120mgOrlistat helps prevent the body from absorbing fat from food. Orlistat will not help reduce appetite and cravings for food, and it is important that a well-balanced diet is maintained whilst the medicine is being taken.

Clinical studies have demonstrated that people who take Orlistat and sustain a reduced-calorie diet achieve significantly greater weight loss than people who were treated with diet alone. This proves that taking Orlistat is indeed an effective way of reducing weight gain, but a good diet must accompany it. Meals should contain no more than about 30% of calories from fat. One 120-mg capsule should be taken with a glass of water three times a day.

To understand more bout how Orlistat aids weight loss, it is first worth taking a closer look at a substance called cholesterol, a waxy constituent made by the liver and also found in some foods. Cholesterol is carried in the blood by proteins called lipoproteins. There are two types of lipoproteins. The first type are HDLs (high density lipoproteins), also referred to as ‘good cholesterol’ due to their protective functions.

The second type are LDLs (low density lipoproteins), otherwise known as ‘bad cholesterol’ because they can build up on blood vessels. Orlistat decreases the amount of total and LDL cholesterol in the body, therefore helping prevent weight gain and reducing the chances of heart disease. However, Orlistat also interferes with the body’s absorption of some fat-soluble vitamins, and because of this it is important that you should also take a multivitamin supplement once a day at least 2 hours before or after taking it.

If you are interested in purchasing Orlistat, you can buy the product here at Assured Pharmacy. Upon completion of an online questionnaire, a GMC regulated doctor will issue a prescription that allows you to acquire Orlistat in an efficient, safe and regulated manner. The prescription is sent straight to our pharmacy where it is checked by a qualified pharmacist to ensure the treatment is suitable. Customers who have purchased Orlistat from Assured Pharmacy have rated their experience as ‘excellent’.

We strive to provide a safe, high quality service at a good price. Whatever you choose to do, please don’t suffer in silence. Being overweight cause major negative psychological effects. It should not give anyone an excuse to demean or bully you, and if you feel like you have been the subject of such behavior then you should report this immediately.

If you would like to speak to someone in confidence or find out more information about the products we offer, call 01625460621 or email [email protected]. Unfortunately, the modern-day culture that places such a huge emphasis on achieving the perfect image is unlikely to change. However, we don’t want weight to be an obstacle to being happy, so please get in touch to find out how we can help you here at Assured Pharmacy.
