Customer Question

I am a 57 yr. old man I'm in good shape Don't take any prescription meds of any kind , lately before having intercourse with my girlfriend of 11 yrs. I have been having trouble getting and maintaining an erection I'm also a fulltime caregiver. I don't have adequate insurance is there any way I can get a prescription for Viagra online and have it filled locally.

Hello
No you can not.
In addition, that would be quite dangerous, as viagra is dangerous when used by a person who has not had the underlying cause identified.
Underlying causes can range from diabetes to heart disease.
Insurance or not, you need medical assessment.
You would certainly qualify for some insurance at healthcare.gov
Or, you can go to neighborhood clinics or teaching hospital clinics, which are on sliding scale.
Any doctor that would give you viagra, even in person, without an exam and assessment would be unethical and not meeting medical standards of care.
Doing in on line would be illegal.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
