Viagra prescription found online

Viagra prescription found online

Men will no longer have to make trips to their GPs in order to obtain Viagra as the drug is now available online from a health website.

Lloydspharmacy has teamed up with the website DrThom to offer the service to men once they fill in a questionnaire.

A GP from the DrThom website will analyse the questionnaire and diagnose any erectile problem before issuing an electronic prescription straight to Lloydspharmacy.

Lloydspharmacy will then post the medication to the patient's home.

The service will cover the erectile dysfunction drugs Viagra, Levitra and Cialis, which work by letting more blood flow into the penis when a man gets sexually excited.

Patients will be given a trial course of up to eight tablets at a cost of £45 per four tablets.

They will then be given the option of moving onto ongoing treatment, with the ability to order up to 16 tablets at a time.

By the end of the year, the site hopes to offer a trial pack of all three drugs, so patients can see which one works best for them.

Patients will be able to access medical support from the DrThom website.

Andy Murdock, pharmacy director of Lloydspharmacy, said the move would help counter the number of fake drugs from overseas being sold on the internet.
