Viagra (sildenafil)Erectile dysfunction

Have you heard of Viagra?
Of course you have, like most Kiwis. Well it’s now available from your GP and pharmacist. Prices vary from pharmacy to pharmacy.

Pfizer New Zealand’s Viagra is our most well-known treatment for erectile dysfunction and may now be available directly from your pharmacist*.

After completing a brief patient assessment form where you answer a few questions, if it’s right for you, you may get Viagra, there and then.

Why choose the little blue pill?
For more than a decade, Pfizer has been a leading name in treating erectile dysfunction, helping millions of men the world over improve their sex lives.

Tested and proven
Studies show that Viagra, with its active ingredient sildenafil citrate, produces grade 4 erections (see scale above), in 58% of users.1

Men who experienced optimal erections were also more likely to experience greater satisfaction with sexual relations as well as an increase in sexual confidence and self esteem.1

Never ignore erection problems
While the occasional difficulty with erection is common in men from their mid-forties onwards, persistent difficulty should never be ignored.

It is known that a combination of stress and fatigue can result in bedroom difficulties. When those difficulties persist, it’s time to see your doctor for a thorough check-up. The health of your erection can be an early warning sign of a range of more serious conditions including heart disease and diabetes.
