Where to buy Viagra online

For whatever reason, men don’t visit a GP as often as perhaps they should. Men are particularly reluctant when the condition they are suffering with makes them feel embarrassed.

The temptation to self medicate for things like erectile dysfunction is all too great and some may think that buying a tablet online is the solution. However, we would urge you to consult with a doctor before considering taking any medications.

Erectile Dysfunction can be the sign of an underlying health issue, and if you don’t get properly diagnosed, you could just be making the situation worse. It is also advisable to check that you are healthy enough to take Viagra in the first place and that it isn’t going to conflict with any other medications you are taking.

Once you have had a full consultation with your GP and they have checked that Viagra is safe and suitable for you to take, there are ways to safely buy Viagra online. Buying online can remove the embarrassment of face to face purchases and has the convenience of being delivered to your door. It is also usually cheaper to buy online.

Safe Online

Please be aware that there are a number of fake sites out there that are non-regulated suppliers. If these sites sell fake Viagra, there can be dangerous consequences to your health and the chances of the tablets actually working on the condition are pretty poor. So, make sure you do your research before buying and don’t just buy from the first site that pops up.

Viagra (Sildenafil) and all erectile dysfunction medications, Cialis (Tadalfil), Spedra (Avanafil), Levitra (Vardenafil) are only available in the UK with a valid prescription signed by a doctor. So, if you are on a site that allows you to make a purchase of Viagra without a prescription, then the site is not legitimate and it is not safe to buy from them.

You will only be given a prescription once a full evaluation has been carried out that will rule out any possible contraindications. A website that is prepared to send you medication without a prescription does not have a safe ethical practice and should be avoided.

Regulations

An Ethical UK online pharmacy who supplies Viagra and other prescription medications must abide by the Care Quality Commissions regulations which state who is authorised to provide online prescriptions, as per the Health and Social Care Act of 2008.

These online pharmaceutical companies must also be registered with the UK General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and you should be able to see the GPhC internet pharmacy logo clearly displayed on their website.

Your information will be kept confidential and secure by a legitimate pharmacy and you, as the patient, should have access to your records at any time. It is imperative that you check your chosen online pharmacy conforms to all the regulations. Here at Private Doc, https://www.privatedoc.com, we are proud to say that we meet all these stringent requirements.

Check the Quality

Purchasing online shouldn’t mean that you have different medications to the ones you have been prescribed. You should still receive branded Viagra, or their UK licensed generic alternatives. If your medication is one of the other erectile dysfunction drugs, the same applies, it should be the branded version or a licensed alternative.

Your drugs should always be received in sealed packages just as you would expect from a walk-in pharmacy. The online service should also have an associated UK pharmacy that is registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council as an online pharmacy.

So check the labels, check the packaging, check the brand and the registration details, and if in doubt, don’t buy.

General Medical Council (GMC)

As we have already mentioned, you should only be able to have Viagra or any other erectile dysfunction medication dispensed with an authorised prescription. If you have not yet visited your own GP to obtain one, you may request a professional online consultation with an experienced GMC registered GP.

A doctor with a legitimate online pharmacy is required to have specialised training to be able to provide prescription medications via an online consultation. It is the doctor’s responsibility to ensure they are issuing the correct prescription. The pharmacist must be registered with the GPhC as well in order to be legally allowed to dispense the medication required.

If you purchase Viagra or any other medication online via an online consultation, you should inform your GP. These consultations will need to be added to your medical records and your online doctor should be willing to communicate as necessary with your registered GP.

All of these regulations are for your safety and wellbeing, to protect you, the patient from poor practice. There should be no difference in the relationship between you and your online doctor to that of you and your GP or any other medical professional. You are entitled to that same patient/doctor confidentiality and the same health checks should be carried out to ensure that you are not taking something that will have a negative impact on your health.

In Conclusion

Do your homework, check that the site you are buying your Viagra or any other medication from is legitimate. Check that they are members of the GMC and the GPhC and that they have the certifications to back it up.

The logos will be easily identifiable on the website.

Notice that there is a registration number with the registered pharmacy logo, it is easy to check these as well.

Make sure you get a full health check before obtaining your prescription to ensure you are not going to have any contraindications with other medications or conditions. Ensure that this check is carried out by a certified medical professional.

If the site you are thinking of buying from doesn’t require a prescription, it is not legal. If the site you’re buying from doesn’t provide sealed branded medication or licensed generic alternatives, it is not legitimate. If the pharmacist or the online doctor are not GMC registered and have not had specialist online training, they are not legally allowed to consult with you and provide you with a prescription.

You wouldn’t risk seeing an unregistered doctor in person or buying off the black market, so don’t risk it online. Be safe, for the sake of a bit of homework, it is worth ensuring you receive legitimate treatment and drugs.
