What is Viagra Connect?

Over one million men have taken action and used Viagra Connect as a treatment for their erection problems.*

Viagra Connect is an effective treatment for erection problems (EP) in men aged 18 years and older.

It can help you to:

• Get an erection for sex

• Stay hard enough for sex

• Keep an erection for the duration of sex

74 percent of men with EPs claimed Viagra Connect improved their erection.**

How does Viagra Connect work?

Viagra Connect relaxes the blood vessels of the penis so more blood can flow into it. That means you can get an erection when you’re sexually aroused. After sex, your erection will go away as it would normally.

Viagra Connect gets to work quickly.

Viagra Connect is quickly absorbed: it usually starts to work in as little as 25 minutes. When you take it with a meal that has a lot of fat in it, like a burger and chips, your body will take longer to absorb Viagra Connect. That means it will take a bit longer to work.

What side effects might I experience?

A headache is the most common side effect of Viagra Connect. For a list of other side effects, read the Patient Information Leaflet, available from The electronic Medicines Compendium (eMC).

You can report any side effects to the national reporting system in the United Kingdom at the Yellow Card Scheme website.

Is Viagra Connect right for you?

If you have erection problems (EP) – what your doctor might call erectile dysfunction (ED) – Viagra Connect could help you.

How can I get Viagra Connect?

You can buy it online from or your local Boots store, no prescription needed. You will be asked some questions before purchase so that the pharmacist can check that it’s suitable for you.

- Take one tablet about 30-60 minutes before sex

- Swallow the tablet whole with a drink of water
