What is Eropid

Eropid is an over-the-counter erectile dysfunction treatment. It contains 50mg of the active ingredient sildenafil citrate. Until 2018, sildenafil was only available as a Prescription Only Medication (POM). Following a consultation by the MHRA, it was agreed that sildenafil should be made available as a Pharmacy (P) medication in the UK, for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in men aged 18 and over. Sildenafil became available over the counter at pharmacies, in the form of Viagra Connect. This was followed by Eropid, which is a cost-effective version.

How does Eropid work?

Eropid helps to increase blood flow to the penis, so that you can achieve and maintain an erection. Eropid will only work where there is sexual stimulation.

How long does Eropid take to work?

It takes around 1 hour for Eropid to take effect. Food can reduce the absorption of sildenafil and it is advisable to take Eropid on an empty stomach, or after having eaten a light meal.

How long does Eropid last?

The effects of Eropid last for up to 4 hours on average. This does not mean that you will have an erection for 4 hours continuously. Rather, you will be able to achieve and maintain an erection satisfactory for sexual intercourse, for a period of 4 hours when sexually aroused.

Eropid dosage instructions

Take one tablet around 1 hour before sexual activity.

Food may reduce the absorption of the tablet.

If Eropid has not worked the first time, you should not panic. It can take some time to get used to the idea of taking a tablet before sex. You should try taking Eropid on eight separate occasions, before deciding whether or not treatment is effective. You should try to relax and maintain an easy state of mind. If you find that Eropid is not effective, you should visit your GP or pharmacist to discuss alternative options.

Eropid and Viagra Connect both contain sildenafil 50mg. They are both licensed to buy over the counter at pharmacies without a prescription and the only difference is the price. Viagra Connect is more expensive than Eropid, even though they contain the same active ingredient and are medically equivalent. This is a commercial decision that comes down to brand marketing and the price has no reflection on the quality of drug, or its effectiveness.

For the best results, you should take sildenafil tablets on an empty stomach or eat a light meal beforehand, as food can affect the absorption of sildenafil.

Consuming alcohol alongside sildenafil may be considered safe, but only when done in moderation. Excessive alcohol intake can heighten side effects and potentially contribute to erectile dysfunction. Alcohol has the effect of slowing down specific bodily functions and constricting blood vessels, which restricts blood flow to the penis. Since sildenafil aims to enhance blood flow to the penis, it can counteract the drug's effects in the presence of excessive alcohol consumption.
