The blue diamond is, of course, the colour and shape of the oral ED treatment known as Viagra. It has been tried and tested over many years and remains the most popular treatment for ED (erectile dysfunction- failing to obtain or maintain a penile erection during sexual activity). What do you need to consider before using the drug?
Firstly you need to decide whether to obtain your prescription for the drug from your local GP, or from an online consultation. The online consultation can seem a bit distant and removed because it usually takes the form of a questionnaire which is then considered by a medically qualified doctor who may seek further information from you. I prefer to go to my GP because I’ve known him for ages, and he is well aware of my medical history. On the first occasion we talked for nearly 15 minutes about my ED and the possible side effects of Viagra. I found this really helpful and since then, I get repeat prescriptions for the drug without needing to trouble him.
Another consideration is the price. Unless you can have the tablets for free on the NHS (for example if you suffer from Diabetes)you may find the drug quite pricey. It can be cheaper to buy the drugs online, especially if you buy in bulk. But is the online pharmacy genuine and is it selling genuine Viagra? Sadly, like any online businesses, there are some who may try to swindle you. The way to avoid this is by doing some research and making sure you use your credit card rather than your debit card, which can give you some protection against online fraudsters. Does the site have a registered address, a customer help line and detailed descriptions of the drugs it sells? Do they insist that you have a prescription (they should do!)?
Next, what strength of the drug do you require? Your GP probably advised you start with a low dose. The more active ingredient in the pill, the more it will cost. If it doesn’t have the desired effects, try the next higher dosage. But you must never take more than one pill in any 24 hour period.
Finally, there’s the delivery time to consider if you are buying online. Ask where the tablets are being sent from and how long it will take to arrive. I’ve had them sent from India, Hong Kong and Canada- and in one case it took two weeks for them to arrive. If you can’t wait, then take your prescription to your local pharmacy and you’ll be given them in next to no time!
