About Viagra Connect
Viagra Connect (sildenafil citrate) is an over the counter treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). It is the first ED treatment to be licensed to treat erectile dysfunction without a prescription in the UK. The medicine was reclassified after a successful application to the MHRA by Pfizer. It contains 50mg of the active ingredient Sildenafil citrate, which belongs to a class of drugs known as PDE-5 (Phosphodiesterase type 5) inhibitors.
PDE-5 inhibitors work by enhancing the erectile response when a man is sexually stimulated. They increase blood flow to the penis, and in turn, make it easier for a longer lasting and harder erection to be maintained.
In around 85% of men, Viagra has been shown to help men in maintaining an erection long enough to be able to have sexual intercourse. The effectiveness of the drug can vary depending on when and how you take it. It should be noted that an erection will only be achieved in the presence of a sexual stimulus.
Other factors affecting the effectiveness of Viagra Connect include whether you take it with food or an empty stomach. It's advisable to take it on an empty stomach, as this should allow the drug to be absorbed more quickly into your system. Taking Viagra Connect when drinking alcohol, particularly if consuming more than 2 units, may also cause the drug to be less effective.

What is the difference between Viagra Connect and Sildenafil?
Medically there is no difference between Sildenafil and Viagra connect. While one is a prescription only medicine, they both contain the same active ingredient and work in the same way. Pfizer are the manufacturer of Viagra Connect, while multiple companies are able to manufacture the generic version of the drug, Sildenafil.
Generic medicines must still meet the same safety and efficacy standards of any branded medication in order to be approved. For this reason, many patients prefer to use a generic, as they are cheaper.
