If you’re looking to get treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED), finding it can be an intimidating prospect. You may not relish the prospect of a face-to-face conversation with your doctor on the subject, and when you look online you may well be bombarded with choices, not all of which look entirely reputable.
Here is our simple, essential guide to help you buy Levitra on prescription safely.
How to buy Levitra online
It’s easy to be overwhelmed and confused by the seemingly endless choice of online outlets for Levitra, and just as easy to be worried by how legitimate those outlets are. But following a few guidelines can make it easier. Buying Levitra online is one available route.
Choosing a website
You should only use sites registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council, which is the UK regulatory body for pharmacies.
To be sure that the website you are using is registered, you should look for the GPhC symbol on the homepage:
When you click on it, it should take you to their entry on the GPhC website, showing that the company is approved for the dispensation of medicine.
If a website does not appear to be registered with the GPhC, you should not use it.
When consulting for a Levitra prescription online, you will be required to take a short questionnaire about your symptoms, disclose details of your medical history and any other medicines you are currently using.
This part of the process is very important, as the side effects of Levitra can be harmful in people with some underlying medical conditions, or who take certain medication.
Then, a doctor will be able to access this information and use it to make an informed decision about whether the medication you’ve requested is the right option for you.
If Levitra is considered by them to be safe for you to use and likely to be effective, an electronic prescription will be issued for you.
Do not use any websites that offer to sell you Levitra or any other form of ED treatment without a prescription.
Prescription and dispensing
Once the electronic prescription has been generated by your consulting physician, it will then be sent to the dispensing pharmacy used by the website you’ve chosen, who will dispense your order.
Then it will be sent for delivery, usually by a courier service who will deliver it directly to you. Your parcel should be tracked and it will need to be signed for.
The pharmacist will be legally bound to ensure that the packaging has no indication of what its specific contents are, other than it being medication.
How to buy Levitra in person
Talking to your doctor about ED may seem embarrassing to you, but it affects around half of all men between the ages of 40 and 70; so it is a very common condition and your doctor will likely have treated it on many occasions before.
Some people may prefer to talk to their doctor and get a prescription in person, rather than getting the medication online.
After talking to you about your symptoms, your doctor will determine whether Levitra is appropriate for you, and may issue you with a prescription, or suggest an alternative.
They might also suggest lifestyle changes you can make which can improve your ED, such as exercise, losing weight, giving up smoking or reducing your alcohol intake.
The prescription an NHS doctor issues for Levitra will usually differ from normal prescriptions, in that the patient will be liable for the full cost. This will mean paying significantly more than the NHS levy rate.
There are some exceptions to this. People with pre-existing medical conditions, or those who have recently had certain forms of surgery, can receive generic ED treatment sildenafil for free on the NHS.
After you receive your prescription, it can be fulfilled by most high street pharmacies.
