Do I need a prescription for generic sildenafil?

Yes — you need a prescription to order any erectile dysfunction medicine.

The pharmaceutical company Pfizer no longer holds a patent on Viagra which means other companies can now produce and sell their own types of generic sildenafil. But you still need a prescription for erectile dysfunction medicines.

Viagra and its active ingredient sildenafil citrate are MHRA-approved medicines and are used worldwide to help men who experience erectile dysfunction. But any medicine can be suitable and perfectly safe for some people, yet be unsafe for others. Your medical history, lifestyle, and other medication can all affect your suitability for a certain treatment.

You can’t say that you are categorically suitable for a type of medicine until you’ve been assessed by a doctor. It’s important that you are completely honest with us; being truthful means we will only prescribe medicine to you if it’s safe to do so.

It’s also worth remembering that any website that offers you erectile dysfunction medicine without a doctor’s prescription is illegal and unsafe - these sites are not regulated, so you can’t be sure what they are giving you.Yes — you need a prescription to order any erectile dysfunction medicine.
