In this day and age, men have more options than ever before to treat erectile dysfunction. However, the first step is the same for all treatment options: seek professional help. This is easier said than done, as one study shows that 74% of ED sufferers aged 50 and older did not discuss their sexual dysfunction issues with their doctor. While erectile dysfunction is a highly personal issue, rest assured that your doctor HAS seen and heard it all before. ED is a legitimate health condition that requires proper medical attention, and men should always consult a doctor before obtaining treatment. Read in full
Pfizer, the pharmaceutical company that developed Viagra (sildenafil), has applied to the UK medicines regulator (MHRA) to reclassify it’s erectile dysfunction (ED) drug from prescription-only to ‘P’ (Pharmacy). This would allow pharmacies to sell sildenafil over the counter without a prescription.
The application is for sildenafil 50mg only in a pack size of 2 tablets. Sildenafil tablets are available on prescription in strengths of 25mg, 50mg, and 100mg in pack sizes of four and eight tablets.
The move follows the expiry of Pfizer’s exclusive patent for Viagra in 2013. After the patent expired other pharmaceutical companies, apart from Pfizer, have been permitted to supply their own sildenafil tablets, sometimes known as generic Viagra.
The application has support from the pharmacy industry: “Sildenafil is one of the most counterfeited medicines,” said Royal Pharmaceutical Society president Martin Astbury, with many men “resorting to the internet to buy medication”. Read in full
No. While Boots is the most ubiquitous high-street pharmacy in the UK, it is often not the cheapest option for many medicines, and not for men requiring Propecia to treat male pattern hair loss.
Currently (February 2017) Boots sell Propecia tablets for £1.13 each – this is for branded Propecia from Merck. Boots do not offer the lower cost generic version of Propecia called finasteride 1mg via their online doctor service.
How to buy from Boots
To buy Propecia from Boots you will need to register with the Boots Hair Loss Online Clinic, and complete a medical questionnaire. After 2 days you can either pick-up your order from a Boots store or local Post Office, or have it delivered
Dr Fox also provides a mail order option for just 45p per tablet (plus small prescription fee and P&P). Dr Fox also provides branded Propecia. Read in full
In short yes – ASDA is the cheapest option to buy Malarone anti-malaria tablets, but it may not be the most convenient option for many people.
Currently (January 2017) ASDA sell Malarone tablets for £1.25 each and provide the choice of branded GSK Malarone or non-branded generic Malarone (atovaquone/proguanil). Both are medically identical and equally effective (no anti-malaria tablet is 100% effective).
How to buy from ASDA
To buy Malarone from ASDA you will need to:
Find a local branch with an in-store pharmacy.
Book an appointment with the pharmacist at the store (for each person requiring tablets).
At the appointment complete a medical questionnaire (10-15 mins).
The pharmacist will assess your information and dispense the appropriate tablets.

Cialis is a treatment for erectile dysfunction. It works in a similar way to Viagra (sildenafil), Levitra, and Spedra, and has similar side effects.
The proper medical name for Cialis is tadalafil. Tadalafil, like the other commonly used erectile dysfunction tablets, is a PDE5 inhibitor, which means it works by inhibiting an enzyme called phosphodiesterase. This in turn changes the blood flow in the penis and improves erections.
A single Cialis tablet will usually remain active for 36 hours, which is longer than Viagra/sildenafil, Levitra, or Spedra. Cialis is sometimes called the ‘weekend pill’ because it works for longer than other treatments. Like other erectile dysfunction tablets, Cialis only works if there is sexual stimulation. If there is no stimulation, Cialis remains inactive. After 36 hours the effects wear-off. Read in full
It is estimated that premature ejaculation affects as much as 40% of men at some stage in their lives, yet the vast majority of us find it very difficult to speak about. Since sufferers can experience great stress in their relationships – as can their partners – it is important that we do more to understand it.
If you are a sufferer of premature ejaculation who follows the right steps, it may be that you can soon have exactly the kind of sex life you hope for.Read in full
