Posted: Wednesday, 14 December, 2011 | Categories: erectile dysfunction, NHS, Viagra

Regarding the purchase of erectile dysfunction treatment on the NHS, there has been an on-going debate about how restricted the accessibility is. Presently, only 2 doses are available each month however up until recently this was not the case. There were no limitations to the amount of Viagra one could purchase.

Men who can obtain erectile dysfunction treatment on the NHS are those who suffer from conditions such as diabetes, MS and prostate cancer. These are usually older men between the ages of 40 and 60 years and based on research that states men of this age have sex, once a week, the NHS have decided that 4 tablets per month would suffice.

Therefore, men are purchasing treatment from unreliable sources according to Pfizer and increasing the number of illegal sources and sites offering this prescription treatment without a valid prescription and without the knowledge of other medications the patient is taking or their medical history which might otherwise contraindicate them for treatment.
Online clinics can prescribe these drugs but one should always look out for the Care Quality Commission logo to ensure that they are getting the real thing.
