What is ED medication?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) medication helps men who struggle to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse. During an erection, the tissues of the penis fill with blood. Therefore, erectile dysfunction is commonly related to health conditions, such as diabetes, that impair the blood flow to the penis, however, ED can also be caused by nerve damage and some psychological factors. Most ED medications work by allowing blood vessels to relax and widen, improving blood flow to the penis.

Can you buy erectile dysfunction medication over the counter in the UK?

A range of ED medication is available in the UK, but only Viagra Connect is available over the counter. Viagra Connect is a form of Viagra that is only available in 50mg tablets. Like Viagra, it contains sildenafil as the active ingredient. 

Alternative treatment options

However, Viagra Connect does not work for everybody and you may have to try a few different medications and doses before you find the one that works best for you. Viagra (sildenafil), Cialis (tadalafil), Levitra (vardenafil) and Spedra (avanafil) are all available on prescription in the UK at a range of doses. 

Other over the counter ED treatments

Some supplements and alternative medicines that claim to treat ED may be available over the counter. However, they are not as heavily regulated as pharmaceutical medications and many of their claims are not backed up by scientific evidence. Therefore, these options are not recommended. 

Alternatively, devices such as a penis pump or penis ring can improve ED in some people. These are mainly available online but may be stocked by some high street stores. If you do not wish to use conventional ED medication, these devices may be an option for you. But, these devices can be dangerous if damaged or used incorrectly, so ensure that you check the device and its instructions thoroughly before use.
