No, sorry -- there is no over-the-counter equivalent at this time.

This type of drug, a PDE5 inhibitor -- are prescription only.

The Viagra (sildenafil) and related medications Cialis and Levitra, are prescription only.

There is no over the counter medication that works in a similar manner.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
