Viagra Sildenafil FAQ

Viagra (Sildenafil Citrate) allows men with erectile dysfunction (ED) to achieve and sustain an erection when sexually aroused.

A Lynnmall Pharmacy pharmacist will run through a checklist to ensure Viagra (Sildenafil Citrate) is right for you. This will only take a few minutes and includes a heart and blood pressure check.

That’s it, you’re done! Repeat supplies will only take a few minutes, provided your health hasn’t changed since your original visit.

There are no consultation or repeat fees, and we’re open 7 days.

How to take Viagra sildenafil?

  • Timing: Take your dose 30 minutes to 1 hour before you intend to have sex. Sildenafil can keep working for up to 4 hours.
  • Swallow the tablet whole with a full glass of water. Do not take with grapefruit or orange juice.
  • You can take it with or without food. It may take longer to work if you take it with a heavy meal. Avoid excessive alcohol as it can lessen the sexual response.
  • Effectiveness: PDE5 inhibitors do not work for everyone – about 30% of men don’t see an improvement. Many men need to try the medication a few (6–8) times before it works. If you don’t have any improvement, do not increase your dose. Instead, talk to your doctor as there may be other treatment options.

In New Zealand sildenafil is available as tablets (25mg, 50mg and 100mg).

  • The dose of sildenafil can be either 25mg, 50mg or 100mg. The dose depends on your response and age.
  • Sildenafil is taken as a single dose before sexual activity. Do not take more than 1 dose a day.
  • Always take your sildenafil exactly as your doctor has told you. The pharmacy label on your medicine will tell you how much sildenafil to take, how often to take it and any special instructions.

You can buy sildenafil directly from Lynnmall Pharmacy after a consultation with the pharmacist. Only pharmacists who have completed additional training can supply sildenafil.

You need to be aged 35–70 years to be eligible for this service. The pharmacy will also need to record your name and address.
