Not everyone is suitable to take erectile dysfunction tablets, so as part of the buying process, we’ll check to make sure that you’ve chosen the right course of treatment. If you suffer from any of the following health problems, let your pharmacist know. 

  • Chest pains 
  • Angina or other cardiovascular disease 
  • Severe liver problems 
  • Low blood pressure
  • A recent stroke

It’s important to note that ED treatments are not suitable for women. 

If you can’t take erectile dysfunction tablets, there are alternatives. Making lifestyle changes like quitting smoking or cutting down on your alcohol intake can help, but your GP might also suggest other remedies, such as a vacuum pump, or counselling to deal with any underlying psychological problems that could be contributing.
