Erectile Dysfunction - The Blue Pill

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is more common than you may think, and – contrary to popular belief – is not a condition that you need to learn to live with.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is when a man has difficulty getting or keeping an erection long enough for sexual satisfaction. For some, ED symptoms can occur just once in a while. For others, it may be a constant problem. Either way, you should know that you’re not alone.

ED is a common condition affecting approximately one in three NZ men aged between 40–70 years.

That doesn’t mean you have to accept ED as merely a part of the ageing process. It is a real medical condition that can be managed and treated, so you can take back the things that are important in your love life.

What if I am experiencing ED?

Experiencing ED can be difficult on personal relationships. It’s hard for partners to understand why you may be withdrawing from physical contact, which can cause a spiral of self-doubt on both sides. They may feel you don’t love them, or find them attractive anymore. Frustration, hurt, and confusion can result from the loss of romance and personal connection that ED can cause.

Treating Erectile Dysfunction

There are ways of treating and reducing your ED issues. Talk to our Pharmacist at Lagan's Pharmacy about the options for treating ED.

these can include:

Sildenafil  ( vedafil, viagara, silvasta)

Sildenafil is the name of a drug that  is used to treat adult men with erectile dysfunction (ED), sometimes known as impotence. This is when a man cannot get, or keep, a hard erect penis suitable for sexual activity.  It is available in several brands, silvasta, vedafil and viagara.  These belong to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors. Sildenafil will work only if you are sexually excited, it does  not increase your sex drive. 

We can determine your suitability for ED medicines after a private conversation in our consultation room.  This will involve taking your blood pressure, smoking status, health history and age.  Most men are pleasantly surprised how comfortable the chat is. 

This consultation is required every 12 months. For  refills you can call ahead and we will have your medicine ready for your to collect. 

Appointments are not required, so drop in any time to speak with one of our accredited pharmacists in our PRIVATE CONSULTATION ROOM. A consultation fee applies for this service.



No appointment necessary.  Private Consultation Room.
