Cut price Viagra at Tesco

21st September 2010

Customers at Tesco supermarkets will soon be able to buy low-cost Viagra over the counter.

Pound Coins

The supermarket chain confirmed that men who suffered from erectile dysfunction (ED) and did not have a GP prescription would be able to ask for Viagra at 300 outlets in the UK.

Tesco said it would charge £52 for eight Viagra pills - a much cheaper rate than that offered by Boots, who sell the medication at £55 for four pills.

The supermarket said only pharmacists at its stores would be able to make the sale and potential customers would be asked questions before they could buy the medication.

Tesco said only men aged between 40-65 years could buy the drug, they would have to fill in a questionnaire and undergo blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes checks.

Shona Scott, commercial manager for Tesco pharmacy services, said: "Provided that the men are suitable we will discuss their options and sell them an effective treatment."

Dr Nick Tomlinson of the Sexual Advice Association said providing medication over the counter for conditions such as ED was a good idea.

"Men can be very embarrassed about going to their GP for help with things like this," he added.

I have suffered from ED for ten years, and I visited my doctor to explain my embarrassment after some tests he give me a prescription for Viagra everything is great now, no side effects. I would suggest you try Superdrug for your Viagra (cheapest without doubt)
