Men in UK Buy Viagra Without Prescription at Supermarket

Men in the UK will be more inclined to buy Viagra now that they can pick it up at the supermarket, at half price. Three hundred Tesco stores will begin selling over-the-counter (OTC) Viagra without a prescription next Monday.

Boots pharmacies began selling Viagra in the UK last year, but their cost is 55 pounds ($85.92 American) for the first four Viagra. Tesco will sell eight Viagra pills for 52 pounds ($81.23 American). It remains to be seen how long it takes for Tesco to raise its prices.

One British doctor stated that men can get eight Viagra pills for 48 pounds from many dispensaries in England, with a proper prescription.

Although a prescription is not technically required at the Tesco stores, men still have to visit the doctor or clinic to have testing performed for high blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes. They may not have to tell the doctor who prescribed these tests about their erectile dysfunction (ED) or intent to use Viagra, but they will have to broach the subject with a Tesco pharmacist.

So it’s unclear how discreetly the British men can ultimately receive their Viagra, although Tesco says it will make “discreet consulting areas” available to those men who want Viagra. Tesco has apparently trained all of its pharmacists how to deal with patients who inquire about Viagra, both the embarrassed ones and the over-confident ones.

One catch to the Tesco offer is that only men between the ages of 40 and 65 can order Viagra at the supermarket. Various British news agencies report that a total of 2.3 million men suffer from ED in the UK.

Pharmacists will also caution men that ED can be a sign of cardiovascular disease, and that they should monitor their condition with their doctor. This is one of the reasons that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will not allow sales of Viagra over the counter in the U.S. Another reason is that men who take nitrates and take Viagra at the same time can experience a serious loss of blood pressure, and even death.

Viagra manufacturer Pfizer has all but given up on the hope that Viagra, at least in its current form, will be approved as OTC in the U.S. A prescription is required to buy Viagra in the U.S., or otherwise the transaction is illegal.

Companies that would sell Viagra without a prescription should not be trusted from an ethical standpoint. And, the chances that these (most likely) foreign companies would actually deliver a product that is up to standards is less than 50 percent, according to the FDA. It’s simply not worth the risk to put unknown substances in your body – the ultimate cost could be much more than the few dollars saved.
