Can I buy Sildenafil online?
Sildenafil is a prescription-only medication. Online doctor services that can prescribe it, like Superdrug Online Doctor, are the only safe and legal option if you want to buy Sildenafil online. Any online pharmacy which is prepared to sell it without a prescription is untrustworthy, and could potentially be selling fake or dangerous medication.
If you’re not sure about buying your medication online, make sure the site you’re buying from is properly regulated by organisations like the Care Quality Commission and Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.
Can I buy Sildenafil over the counter?
As Sildenafil is a prescription-only medication, you cannot buy it over the counter. However, there is an alternative that works in the same way called Viagra Connect that is available over the counter without a prescription.
|Pack Size||Sildenafil 25mg||Sildenafil 50mg||Sildenafil 100mg|
- is a tablet that can help you get and keep erections
- is the generic version of the branded erectile dysfunction treatment, Viagra
- contains sildenafil citrate, the same active ingredient in Viagra
What strengths of Sildenafil are there?
Sildenafil comes in 3 strengths, 50mg, 25mg, and 100mg:
- 50mg is the dosage most people start on and it works for most men who try it
- 25mg is the dosage you could try if you’ve already tried 50mg and it worked but you had some mild side effects – 25mg might improve these side effects
- 100mg is the dosage you could try if you tried 50mg and you didn’t get any side effects but you also didn’t see the results you hoped for – 100mg can work when 50mg doesn’t
If you’ve never used Sildenafil before and you’re not sure which dose to try, we recommend 50mg.
Because they’re the same medication, Sildenafil and Viagra have the same dosages. See our page on Viagra (Sildenafil) Dosages for more information.
How does Sildenafil work?
Sildenafil works the same way as Viagra. It improves the blood flow to your penis, making it easier for you to get an erection that’s hard enough for sex if you’re sexually aroused.
See our How Viagra (Sildenafil) Works page for more information.
How to take Sildenafil
Taking Sildenafil is easy, just like any other tablet you swallow:
- Before taking Sildenafil, read the patient information leaflet that comes with your medication
- Take Sildenafil one hour before you want to have sex
- Swallow your tablet whole, with water if needed
- Do not take Sildenafil more than once every 24 hours
- For the best results, avoid eating heavy meals or drinking alcohol before using Sildenafil
- You may need to take Sildenafil on up to 8 times (on different days) before you see the full effect
How long does Sildenafil last?
- Sildenafil starts working around 30 to 60 mins after you take it
- Sildenafil normally lasts around 4 to 6 hours
- Sildenafil may take longer to work if you eat a heavy meal or drink alcohol beforehand
- If you want a medication that lasts longer, you could think about trying Cialis
- If you want a medication that works quicker, Spedra starts working in just 15 and Cialis Daily works constantly so there’s no waiting time
See our How Long Does Viagra (Sildenafil) Last page for more information.
Does Sildenafil work for women?
Sildenafil is not proven to work for women, and it may be dangerous to use. It’s not clear if it improves sex drive or pleasure during sex either. It is illegal for women to buy Sildenafil in the UK
If you or your partner are female and having sexual problems, see the NHS’s page on female sexual problems.
See our Viagra (Sildenafil) for Women page for more information.
Sildenafil is an effective treatment, but it doesn’t work for everyone:
- Sildenafil works for 74% of men who try it
- Sildenafil has a rating of 8.2 out of 10 for erectile dysfunction treatment according to user reviews on drugs.com
- On average, patients who used Superdrug Online Doctor to order Sildenafil treatment rate it 4.6 out of 5 stars on Trustpilot.com

- Pfizer patented Sildenafil after it was created, selling it exclusively under the brand name Viagra
- This patent expired in 2013 and since then other manufacturers have been able to make and sell generic Sildenafil
- Sildenafil is a generic medication so it can be manufactured by anyone, but Viagra is a Pfizer brand, so only they can make it
- In 2017 Pfizer patented the first over-the-counter form of Sildenafil – Viagra Connect
If you’re not sure which to choose, remember they both have the same active ingredient and both are safe as long as a doctor approves treatment for you. We don’t recommend one over the other.
See our page on the differences between Viagra Connect, Viagra, and Sildenafil for more information.

* these time apply to 10mg or 20mg doses you take before sex – the 2.5mg and 5mg daily doses are always working
If you need help choosing:
- Both are about as effective as each other – even though Sildenafil has higher dosage numbers, that doesn’t mean it’s stronger overall
- If you want a longer-lasting medication, you might want to choose Tadalafil or Tadalafil Daily
- If you don’t want to have to plan to take your medication before sex, you might want to choose Tadalafil Daily
Since sildenafil and tadalafil are the active ingredients in Viagra and Cialis, you can see our Viagra vs Cialis vs Levitra page for more information.
