Viagra is licensed to treat erectile dysfunction in the UK. But it is a Prescription Only Medication (POM), which, as the term suggests, means that it is illegal to buy the drug without a valid prescription. If you are wondering why you need a prescription to purchase this medication, you can read our blog post ‘why I need a prescription to buy Viagra’ for more information.

So, where can you buy Viagra in the UK? Once you have a private prescription by a UK licensed doctor, you can buy the medication from any high street pharmacy or some online pharmacies.

Your GP may prescribe the medication if you have erectile dysfunction and you can then collect it from a local pharmacy. The NHS limits Viagra (and its generic version Sildenafil) prescriptions to 4 tablets per month, but you can always get a private prescription.

As for online pharmacies, not all of them accept private prescriptions, but they have medical consultations, online doctors and independent prescribers that can issue prescriptions.

When buying medication online, make sure that the source of the medication is registered as an online pharmacy and regulated by the Care Quality Commission. You can check their status on the General Pharmaceutical Council’s website, for which their website should have an internet pharmacy logo linking to the site. Verifying the website you are buying Viagra from means you can be reassured that you are buying medication from a legitimate online pharmacy and avoid buying illicit medication which may be a scam.

Online pharmacies have to adhere to strict regulations and they are inspected regularly to conform with the high standards. Therefore, you can feel safe knowing that the medications you are buying are from reputable wholesalers and genuine. Also, if the online pharmacy’s website has an address and phone number, you can call and ask to speak to a pharmacist for advice on the medications. All of this should reassure you as to the legitimacy of the company and the safety of its products.

Talking about erectile dysfunction is still considered taboo in our society and some men may feel uncomfortable discussing their issues with their GP. However, do not be tempted to buy medication online without a prescription, as these can easily be counterfeit medication: the wrong dose, strength, ingredients or another item altogether.

Your health should come first.

If you want to buy Viagra online safely and discreetly, you can do so by purchasing it from Pharmica. After completing a short medical questionnaire, our pharmacists will review your answers and if you are eligible and meet the requirements to use Viagra, we will send you your medication in discreet plain packaging so you can order with confidence.
