Getting hard wasn’t always easy. Now it is. Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra®, which is clinically approved in the UK to treat ED.
It improves blood flow to the penis by relaxing blood vessels and smooth muscle. The result is a harder and longer-lasting erection.
We offer this popular ED treatment at a fraction of the brand name price.

Sildenafil starts to work when you’re sexually aroused. So start by getting in the mood.
Sildenafil takes 30-60 minutes to work, with the sweet spot at the one-hour mark.
Effects last for four hours, sometimes longer. Get ready for a great time with your partner.
Erection difficulties are very common. 40% of men will experience ED by age 40. Fortunately, there are effective solutions available. Sildenafil is the most popular treatment for men with ED. It has been clinically proven to work for the vast majority of guys with ED.

Sildenafil (aka, sildenafil citrate) is proven to combat erectile dysfunction and help you get hard when the time is right. Sildenafil citrate is a well known PDE5 inhibitor that has been prescribed by doctors for the last 20 years, ever since Viagra® was first approved in 1998.
Hims offers access to genuine sildenafil online. Through our platform, you can get evaluated for ED treatment discreetly, skipping in-person conversations and physical trips to the pharmacy.
First, you'll be securely connected online to a UK clinician to evaluate you and answer any questions. If determined to be appropriate by the clinician, you can be prescribed sildenafil, tadalafil or other prescription ED drugs, which will be delivered right to your door at a pace that suits you. Ongoing adjustments are made simple by contacting a clinician through our platform.
Typically sildenafil is recommended to be taken on an empty stomach about an hour before you plan to get busy, and you should be able to keep that erection strong for as long as it’s needed.
Some men experience a tingly feeling in their body, headaches, temporary visual symptoms and other side effects from sildenafil. Make sure to read all the important safety information that comes with your treatment. If you are experiencing side effects that are bothersome or persistent, use our platform to talk to a clinician who can recommend adjustments to your treatment.
The main difference is branding and price. Viagra® is a brand name medication invented by Pfizer, while sildenafil (or sildenafil citrate) is the active ingredient in Viagra® that’s responsible for its positive effects on treating erectile dysfunction.
