Is Viagra available over the counter? 

Viagra is a prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. Patients or any buyer needs to provide an authentic prescription in order to procure a Viagra pill. 

However, there are many e-pharmacies or online healthcare providers who do provide certain OTC Viagras. It is highly risky to buy such OTC Viagras as many of these contain not only fake or unproven ingredients, but are often made in unsafe and unsanitary conditions. 

Is there an over-the-counter version of Viagra?

Numerous online portals sell certain OTC Viagra, which are often advertised as ‘substitutes’ for Viagra. Again, many of these are also marketed as either natural or herbal supplements. Most of these substitutes are much more affordable and are easily available in most places.    

Are the OTC Viagra substitutes safe?

Most of these Viagra substitutes that are marketed as supplements are not been tested or approved by the FDA. In addition to this, there is not enough evidence that they provide much of benefits for your sexual performance or that they work effectively to treat erectile dysfunction in the most appropriate way.

Moreover, since these substitutes are sold without a valid prescription, they might not be all safe to take, especially if anyone is taking these medications also for conditions like hypertension i,e high blood pressure, or even heart disease. 

Most of these over-the-counter alternatives to Viagra contain large amounts of unknown and frequently unlabeled ingredients; which means you are at a high risk of experiencing drug interactions if you use these products with your other current prescription medications. 

However, many people prefer to go for these ‘unsafe’ options as they are much more affordable, and most importantly, they can seamlessly obtain them without having to share their current medical condition, and medical history, with a doctor for a thorough diagnosis and get the prescription.
