HCPs Views On VIAGRA connect

Watch and learn how experts manage the ED conversation

HCP Interviews

The launch of VIAGRA connect as a pharmacy medicine should make it more convenient for men with ED to seek help at an earlier stage of their treatment journey.

The impact of ED on an individual and his partner can be considerable, as the ability to have an erection is important to a man’s perception of his own wellbeing. ED could lead to a man feeling anxious, depressed and lacking in self-confidence. Many men do not seek help from a healthcare professional because they are embarrassed.1,2 

To guide you through addressing the anxieties men may be feeling, we spoke to experts about their experiences in how they have successfully managed the ED conversation – right from the first moment men walk into the pharmacy environment.
