Dr. Shah :

Hello, Welcome to Just answer!

Dr. Shah :

Viagra is a prescription meds. If you have a prescription, then you can buy it from your local pharmacy. Otherwise, you will have to visit your doctor to get a prescription, so that you can buy it.

Dr. Shah :

In the US, who ever need it, they will ask their doctor for prescription.

Customer :

Thankyou i live in the uk .

Dr. Shah :

Let me confirm, if is available over there

Customer :

Hi Dr is that the same for the uk ?

Dr. Shah :

I looked into it. It seems like Uk had a pilot trial of OTC viagra for 3 months in 2007. This was done with a hope to extend this service for longer duration.

Dr. Shah :

At the current time, I don't think that you can buy it over the counter.

Customer :

Dr doe's that mean that they do sell it over the counter or would i need to obtain a proscription from my GP ?

Dr. Shah :

You will need prescription from your GP

Customer :

Thankyou Dr .

Dr. Shah :

you are welcome!

Based on the information available from the NHS site, Viagra is available through Boots pharmacy without a prescription from a physician.


 


You do need to have a consultation with the pharmacist however. Here is information on this program.
