Is VIAGRA Connect SAFE? Why do you not need a prescription for it?


The active ingredient in VIAGRA connect (sildenafil) has been available for over 18 years as the active ingredient in Viagra.  is also available generically online and via prescription.

VIAGRA connect is the first over the counter ED medicine available in the UK. You do not require a prescription and it is available to buy from the pharmacy and registered online pharmacies like SimplyMeds Online.

Sildenafil is a clinically proven drug and should be available safely, however nearly half of purchases online for Sildenafil or Viagra are for fakes. This isn't a problem when ordering from an online pharmacy like SimplyMeds Online, however there are so many non-pharmacy sites claiming to sell these products that online customers often cannot see the signs before ordering.

Viagra Connect has been made available to improve access to safe, genuine versions of these medicines for those customers that find it difficult to trust certain online retailers.

Viagra Connect is avaible only as the normal strength of Sildenafil which is 50mg. Normal Viagra and Sildenafil are available as 25mg, 50mg and 100mg tablets. 50mg of sildenafil is the standard dose and most men will be effectively treated at this dose.

They all take between 30-60 minutes to start working and treat the exact same symptoms as eachother.
