Viagra Connect® as a treatment for Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient to have sex. 

Erection problems can put a strain on relationships. They can also be a warning sign of a health condition or disease you might not be aware of. That’s why it’s important to take action and find a solution for your ED.

IS VIAGRA RIGHT FOR YOU?

Daily life can sometimes get in the way of your sex life. When it does, Viagra Connect is here to help.

Who it’s for: Viagra Connect is for adult men (over 18 years of age) who have erection problems (EPs) – what doctors might call erectile dysfunction (ED).

Who it isn’t for: If you are a woman, a man under 18, or do not have EPs, then Viagra Connect isn’t the right treatment for you.

Where you buy it: From our trusted partner ChemistDirect, from other online pharmacies, and from your local pharmacy. No prescription needed.

Are you taking other medicines? Some medicines can interact with Viagra Connect, so you’ll be asked what else you might be taking before you can buy it.

Do you have any other health conditions? Some men will have issues with their health that make Viagra Connect unsuitable for them. This is why you’ll be asked a few straightforward questions about your health before you can buy it.

Try and do the following to get the most out of Viagra Connect:

  • Get in the mood. Viagra Connect usually starts to work within 30–60 minutes, so you can be ready when you need to be. Remember, taking Viagra Connect isn’t going to give you an instant erection; you need to be sexually aroused for it to work. You and your partner should engage in foreplay, just like you would if you weren’t taking medicine for erectile dysfunction (ED) – the medical name for erection problems (EPs)
  • Relax. There’s no rush. Viagra Connect works for up to 4 hours after you take it – it will still work within this period of time, in response to sexual stimulation
    Watch what you eat. Viagra Connect can be taken with or without food. But if you take it after a meal that has a lot of fat in it, like a burger and chips, it might take a bit longer to start working
  • Get familiar. If it’s been a long time since you had an erection, try masturbating before having sex so you can get used to the feeling of having an erection again
  • Don’t give up. If Viagra Connect doesn’t work first time, don’t worry, getting used to having an erection again can take a while. Next time you’re ready, take another tablet – but never more than 1 a day
  • Keep your options open. If Viagra Connect doesn’t work for you after several separate tries, talk to your pharmacist or doctor. You might need a different treatment – either for your erection problems or for a condition that is contributing to them
  • Always read the instructions. The Patient Information Leaflet, which you’ll find in the Viagra Connect box, tells you exactly what to do to get the best results from Viagra Connect, so it’s worth reading. In fact, it’s essential

HOW DOES VIAGRA CONNECT® WORK?

Viagra Connect® is quickly absorbed - it takes 30–60 minutes to work. Do not take more than 1 tablet a day.

When you take it with a meal that has a lot of fat in it, like a burger and chips, your body will take longer to absorb Viagra Connect®.

IS VIAGRA CONNECT® RIGHT FOR YOU?
  • Who it’s for: Viagra Connect® is for adult men (over 18 years of age) who have erectile dysfunction (ED).

How long does Viagra Connect last?

It stays active in your body for up to 4 hours. It then gets broken down by the liver and is removed in the faeces and urine.

How does Viagra Connect work?

It relaxes the blood vessels in your penis so more blood can flow into it. That means when you are sexually aroused you get and keep an erection hard enough for sex.

Is Viagra Connect the same as Viagra?

Viagra Connect and Viagra are both manufactured by Pfizer, contain the same active ingredient (sildenafil citrate), and work in the exact same way.

How long does Viagra Connect take to start working?

The amount of time this medicine takes to work varies from person to person, but it normally takes between 30 to 60 minutes. You may take it up to 4 hours before sexual activity. Relax and be patient if VIAGRA CONNECT does not help you the first time.
