Can I Buy Viagra Online?

The internet; a plethora of information on anything you can think of. Indeed, as more people now turn to the internet to search health issues, the emergence of buying drugs online is increasing in popularity. But should you be worried? Can it, or perhaps more pressing, should it be just as easy and convenient to buy medication as a pair of shoes? And what are the questions we should be asking?

The 21st century is fast paced and for a majority of us, we simply cannot find the time to make a trip to the doctor’s surgery and then to the pharmacy. This situation is further worsened by the difficulty in getting a doctor’s appointment and collecting the medication which may or may not be in stock at the pharmacy, and this is on top of everything else you have to do in a day! Indeed, in this ever increasing technology-based world, convenience for our busy population is everything.
doctorThis is where internet pharmacies are great. Doctor consultations can now take place online long after normal closing hours and prescriptions and medication can be delivered to you in the comfort of your own home.
This is particularly useful in sensitive health matters such as buying Viagra; a drug used in the treatment of male impotence. This is a common health problem which affects approximately 5% of men over the age of 40. Yet social stigma now means that this can be a health issue for which all men are not willing to seek help. However, being able to buy the medication online is a simple solution and will be invaluable in improving men’s quality of life.

Yet there are some problems with this service and it stems from the fact that the internet is the biggest unregulated market in the world and the World Health Organisation (WHO) estimate that over 50% of the medicines purchased from sites may be counterfeit. Counterfeit medicines are essentially ‘copies’ of the original medicine which have no guarantee of its efficiency or safety in the same way the original medicine had. It is not approved by regulatory bodies and cannot be guaranteed as safe. These fake medicines are produced as they are quick, easy and can be sold at an elevated price (sometimes up to 50% more than local High Street pharmacies). In addition, reports carried out by the European Alliance for Access to Safe Medicines (EAASM) found that 26% of medicines bought online were either substandard or counterfeit. Finally, this multi-million-pound bogus medicines trade is estimated to be responsible for around half a million deaths a year.

Indeed, Britain is on the firing line as a target for many of these counterfeits as medicine prices in the UK can be relatively high compared to other EU countries. Despite this, the School of Pharmacy in London found that only 19% of Britons felt there was a growing risk from counterfeit medicines compared with 74% of Europeans as a whole.

illegal drugsIn fact, one of the biggest concerns about buying medicines such as Viagra online is the fear that you will get a counterfeit product. Counterfeit drugs may have many problems associated with them such as being contaminated, will not help the condition or disease the medicine is intended to treat, lead to dangerous side effects, contain the wrong active ingredient or be made with the wrong amounts of ingredients. Defects such as these are often well hidden and many fake medicines are designed to look similar or identical to the original product.

A recent example of this was detected by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in counterfeit versions of the weight loss drug Xenical, which contains the active ingredient orlistat, these were obtained by three customers from two different websites. Laboratory analysis showed that the capsules received by customers contained the wrong active ingredient, sibutramine. Sibutramine is found in a different medicine called Meridia, a prescription drug used to help obese people lose weight. It, however, is classified as a controlled substance by the Drug Enforcement Administration because of its potential for abuse and misuse. Using medicine that contains an active ingredient that was not prescribed by your licensed health care provider may be harmful.

When buying any medicine online be sure to check the physical appearance such as colour, texture, shape and packaging.

Buying medicines from a reputable online pharmacy site will help keep you as safe as possible when buying medicines online. Things you should be looking out for are sites which do not require a prescription to get medicines. This is dangerous for many reasons, not all medicines are suitable for everyone and have the possibility of causing serious damage to your health. Viagra and all the brands associated with this medication require a valid prescription to be supplied to patients; therefore any site claiming to supply this medication without a prescription is most likely dangerous and not operating legally. In relation to this, you can check the registration status of the pharmacist online by searching for the name and address of the pharmacy operating the website. All pharmacists should also be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council and will have a unique registration code; this code should also be clearly available on an online pharmacy. Medicines sold from disreputable sites can be poor quality and harmful to your health. What you receive in the post could be counterfeit, substandard or unapproved.

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).

Dosage

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

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]

When shopping online there are some key things you should be looking out for such as the following: a padlock Buy Viagra Safelysymbol in the search bar of the internet page and the web address should begin with ‘https://’, the ‘s’ stands for secure. In addition, if you are using the latest version of your internet browser, the address bar or name of the site owner will turn green in colour. Other precautions include checking your details before payment, logging out of sites after inserting personal information (closing the page is generally not secure enough) and checking credit/debit card statements carefully to ensure that the correct amount has been debited and no fraud has taken place as a result of the transaction. Finally, ensuring you have effective and updated antivirus software may be beneficial when shopping online to ensure that your personal information is kept safe.

100mg Viagra TabletsTypical characteristics of genuine Viagra include the requirement of a valid prescription from an appropriate practitioner, a batch number and expiry date as found on the side of the box, a diamond-shaped tablet with writing indents on both sides of the tablet; on one side the dosage information and on the second side a manufacturers name, which for branded Viagra is Pfizer. In the UK Viagra is supplied in blister strips of four tablets only. In addition, Viagra is only sold in three doses of 25mg, 50mg and 100mg, therefore, any variations on these strengths indicate a false medication and would be a cause for concern. Also, no alternative forms are available for Viagra tablets (Other than generic sildenafil) and so many products claiming to be high strength, chewable or fast dissolving are likely to be counterfeit. If in doubt about the quality or safety of a medication it is advised to abandon treatment temporarily until the reliability of the medication can be verified. Healthcare professionals such as your pharmacist or doctor will be able to assist you in this matter.

If you have bought, medicines online which you believe may be fake, or have any concerns about the quality of any medicines you can contact the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) enforcement group at [email protected] or call the 24-hour hotline on 020 3080 6701.

In conclusion, Viagra and other similar brands such as Cialis and Levitra can be bought online safely. Indeed, the process of buying medications online can be safe and effective provided patients take appropriate precautions and are alert to any suspicious websites and associated fraudulent activity, as mentioned above. By buying from registered pharmacy websites such as Assured Pharmacy you can be guaranteed that you are getting top quality service and the highest level of patient care.
