What is Eropid?
23rd July 2020
Eropid is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction that can help men to achieve and maintain an erection where they would be otherwise unable to. The tablets contain 50mg of the active ingredient, Sildenafil, which is the same active ingredient as Viagra and Viagra Connect.
What’s the difference between Eropid and Viagra?
Eropid and Viagra are both ED drugs that contain the active ingredient Sildenafil. This works by relaxing the smooth muscles in the blood vessels of the penis and helping you achieve and maintain an erection.
The key difference between Eropid and Viagra is that Viagra is a prescription-only medication, while Eropid can be bought over the counter at a pharmacy (including online pharmacies like UK Meds). This can make Eropid more accessible as you don’t need a doctor’s appointment, although you can actually order Viagra online without a GP appointment too by using our online prescription service.
The other key difference between Eropid and Viagra is the strength of the tablets. Eropid is only available as a 50mg tablet, while Viagra is available as 25mg, 50mg and 100mg. If you have tried Eropid and found it not to have the desired effect, then it may be that you need a slightly higher dose. You shouldn’t take more than one dose of Eropid so be sure to discuss the option of Viagra if you feel you could benefit from a higher strength.
While Eropid is extremely affordable, branded Viagra can cost more. But if you need the 100mg tablets (that are not available with Eropid) then you could opt for generic Sildenafil. This is still a prescription-only medication and works exactly the same as Viagra but for a lower price.
What’s the difference between Eropid and Viagra Connect?
Eropid’s main difference from Viagra is the fact that it’s available to buy over the counter, but there is also the option of Viagra Connect. Viagra Connect is also an over the counter treatment that’s available to buy from a pharmacy without a prescription.
Both medications are 50mg tablets containing Sildenafil so the key difference between the two is the cost. While 4 tablets of Viagra Connect cost £17.99, 4 tablets of Eropid cost only £14.95. So if you’re looking to try Sildenafil without a trip to the GP, then you may wish to try an over the counter option.
How do I use Eropid?
Eropid is designed to be taken 30-60 minutes before sexual activity and will then remain active in your system for 3-4 hours. While the drug is active in your system, you will still need sexual stimulation (whether that’s physical or mental) in order for it to help you achieve an erection. Sildenafil (the active ingredient) doesn’t work by altering your libido, so if you’re not interested in sex then it’s unlikely to have an effect.
You should only take one dose of Eropid per day and the tablets are to be taken orally with or without food. If you do take it with food then be careful not to have a big meal or one high in fat. If you eat a big or heavy meal before taking erectile dysfunction medication then it may affect how it’s absorbed and make it less effective.
