Erectile Dysfunction / possibility to get a prescription

Dear Dr,

I am a male, 43 years old with a height of 185cm and a weight of 100kg.

Since a year I am facing a erectile dysfunction but feel ashamed to consult a doctor in person as it’s something which is hard to bear and face in my age.

Is there a chance to get a prescription for Viagra or Cialis on doc? Are the generics having their same impact if mg dosage is the same? Which product is most recommendable with the most less side effects in consumed on a long term basis?

Looking forward to your reply and thank you all in advance for the opportunity here to express my problems.

Kind regards,

Dr Nur Syuhada binti Zulkifli 9 months

Hello, thank you for your question.
The answer is a general description of the problem you’re having. Please click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with us.

Based on the above information, we understand your concern about the problem you’re having. To your knowledge, erectile dysfunction can be caused by many things, such as:

  • psychogenic - such as stress, anxiety, problematic relationships
  • psychiatry - anxiety disorder, depression
  • neurogenic - trauma, diabetes, alcohol
  • endocrine - thyroid problems
  • arteriogenic - related to blood vessels such as high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, high cholesterol and more
  • side effects of drugs such as antihypertensive, antidepressants, and more

For your information, uncontrolled chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension and uncontrolled cholesterol can lead to many complications, including erectile dysfunction. You should consult your doctor and discuss any problems you may have before starting another medication such as Viagra. Most cases have a good prognosis after the above causes are well controlled.

According to your inquiry, Viagra and Cialis are drugs of the same group that are commonly used to treat problems related to:

  • Heart problems
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Benine prostate hyperthrophy

However, these medication requires a doctor’s prescription. Therefore, please refer to health professionals regarding the suitability of the medication for your existing health status. Please click here to talk to our pharmacist in private for further inquiries. Thank you.
