The role of a pharmacist

Pharmacists are well placed to identify possible underlying conditions early in men who are looking for help with erection problems.

How pharmacists can help men with EPs

In addition to offering treatment for EPs, pharmacists can play an important role in recommending lifestyle changes and advising men on possible underlying health issues that could be related to, or causing, erection problems.

Things to keep in mind

Although erection problems are often thought to affect older men, pharmacists should be aware that they are becoming more common in younger men. A more holistic approach needs to be taken when talking to men concerned about erection problems.

In the pharmacy setting, there is an opportunity to talk to men of all ages confidentially and refer them to their GP if it is suspected they may have any other health concerns.
