Where Can I Buy Viagra?

You can, of course, buy Viagra at your local pharmacy. But you can also safely buy it online, if you know what to look for in an online provider. 

 

Perhaps you have only recently realized that your erection difficulties were more than isolated incidents and suspect you may have erectile dysfunction (ED).

Or perhaps you have experienced ED for a while and hoped it would resolve on its own. Or maybe you have accepted that you have ED, but want to know all your options for purchasing prescription medications for it. Viagra was the first prescription drug available for ED, and continues to be a huge seller. It’s often the first medication men think of when they think of treating ED. But what are your options for obtaining Viagra safely, discreetly, and cost-effectively?

You Can Buy Viagra at Your Local Pharmacy

Once you obtain a prescription for Viagra, you can simply take it to your local pharmacy and have it filled. It sounds simple, but for some men, such a transaction is anything but. If you live in a small town, you may well know the pharmacist or pharmacy technician, and though ED is certainly nothing to be ashamed of, it’s not information most men want to share – not even with a professional who is bound by confidentiality laws.

Then there’s the possibility of running into a friend or co-worker at the pharmacy, someone who may express concern for your health when they see you picking up a prescription. Sure, you can tell them you’re picking up medicine for your child’s ear infection, but the situation is still potentially stressful. Sometimes the local pharmacy isn’t the ideal answer to the question “Where can I buy Viagra?”

Your Can Buy Viagra from Pfizer

A couple of years ago, Pfizer, the manufacturer of Viagra, started making Viagra available on its own website, Viagra.com through a partnership with pharmacy chain CVS. They did this for two main reasons. One, they wanted to offer men a safe alternative to sketchy websites selling products that claim to be Viagra but which are almost always counterfeit products. Two, they wanted to offer another shopping option to shore up brand loyalty ahead of Viagra going off-patent in the United States, in 2020. (Pfizer has reached an agreement with Teva Pharmaceuticals to sell a generic version of Viagra starting in late 2017, but full generic competition won’t happen in the US until 2020.)

You Can Buy Viagra from an Online Pharmacy

Just as there are online bookstores and other online retailers, there are online pharmacies. Some of them require membership and some don’t. Prices and shipping policies vary. Ordering a prescription from an online pharmacy may involve faxing a prescription, but some online pharmacies are for refilling existing prescriptions that you have had filled at bricks-and-mortar stores previously. Some require you to order by traditional mail, printing out an order form and sending it, along with your paper prescription, to be filled. This can be inconvenient, and can take longer than you want it to take.

You Can Buy Viagra from an Online Medical Facilitator

Online medical facilitators allow you to fax prescriptions to an online provider and place the order online. It can be considerably faster than printing out a paper order and sending it, along with your paper prescription, by mail. Online medical facilitators may also offer services that connect customers who don’t have prescriptions with licensed doctors who can make an evaluation and submit a prescription online, in a short amount of time. The facilitator then contracts with a licensed pharmacist to fill the prescription, which is shipped out, sometimes on the same day the order is placed. If an online medical facilitator offers medical consultations for those who don’t have prescriptions, check to see if this incurs further costs. Some facilitators charge extra for medical consultations, while others do not.

Where Not to Buy Viagra

Many “online pharmacies” sell fake drugs with questionable or dangerous ingredients.

 

It should go without saying that buying Viagra on the street is incredibly dangerous and should never be done. There is simply no way of knowing whether the product – which may look exactly like legitimate Viagra – is the real thing or not. Pfizer has its own labs to analyze “Viagra” purchased from a variety of questionable sources, and often its own scientists don’t know if a product is real until it is broken down and chemically analysed. Counterfeit Viagra has been found to contain ingredients like printer ink, household paint, and wallboard, as well as active ingredients that are dangerous or deadly.

Likewise, you should never buy Viagra from any online source that says it doesn’t require a prescription. For one thing, doing this is illegal, and for another, these dodgy websites at best take your money while delivering a fake product that has no effects, and at worst may send you a product that’s dangerous.

Sketchy online sources of “Viagra” often advertise ridiculously cheap prices, and, knowing that most Americans implicitly trust our neighbors to the north, may cover their sites in Canadian flags to make it appear as if they operate out of Canada when they don’t. Google does its best to keep these sites out of the top search results, but it is an ongoing battle, so you have to be extremely careful when typing “Where can I buy Viagra?” into a search engine.

Conclusion

It’s perfectly understandable that a man may not want to drop off a prescription for Viagra at his neighborhood pharmacy out of concern for privacy. There are other options, and to arrive at the right answer when asking “Where can I buy Viagra?” requires some research and common sense. Mail order or online pharmacies may work for some people, though they have their drawbacks. Medical facilitators offer another option, along with convenience and speed. But buying from questionable sources including websites offering cheap or even “herbal” Viagra is dangerous to your wallet and potentially to your health.
