The move comes after health officials reclassified the drug last year.In November, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency announced it was reclassifying Viagra Connect tablets so they could be sold over the counter.It was hoped that making the drug more widely available will mean that men who may have not previously sought help for erectile dysfunction will be more likely to do so.Now Viagra Connect manufacturer Pfizer has revealed when and where people can access the drug.It will be available in pharmacies from today, for £19.99 for a four-tablet pack or £34.99 for an eight-tablet pack, including VAT.It will be available exclusively in Boots for two weeks before being rolled out to other pharmacies.Pfizer said that Viagra Connect is the first pharmacy medicine for erectile dysfunction to be made available without prescription.It said that erectile problems affect up to one in five men - the equivalent of 4.3million men across the UK.But many do not seek medical help for their condition. to help determine if the product is suitable for them.Pharmacists will be able to determine whether treatment is appropriate for the patient and can give advice on erectile dysfunction, usage of the medicine, potential side effects and assess if further consultation with a general practitioner is required.But some men, including those with severe heart problems, those at high risk of heart problems, liver failure, kidney failure or those taking certain “interacting medicines”, will still need to be prescribed the drug under the supervision of a doctor.Officials also hope the move will help steer people away from buying drugs from websites operating illegally.
