Viagra to become over-the-counter medicine, MHRA rules


What you say is correct, but you underestimate our pharmacy friends. Sudden onset especially in a young person usually means psychological. They can easily decline prescribing sildenafil until after investigated. Giving 1 packet of 4 x 50mg sildenafil is unlikely to do too mach harm. I used to always recommend fasting lipids & glucose check and anyone over 50 a PSA. It is far better for a qualified pharmacist to prescribe than someone to buy on the internet a totally unknown product with little or no guidance.
