What is Vitaros cream?

Vitaros is a fast-acting topical erectile dysfunction treatment that comes as a cream. Vitaros contains the active ingredient Alprostadil and works by widening the blood vessels of the penis to enable more blood to fill the chambers during sexual stimulation.

Why Vitarios?

The cream is designed for topical use in the form of disposable individual applicators and is suited to men who require or prefer an alternative to impotence treatments in pill form. Vitaros proves particularly popular with men who have not found other erectile dysfunction medication to achieve the desired results or who have experienced significant side effects from the treatment. An added benefit of Vitaros is that it is suitable for men who take other prescription medications and cannot use PDE-5 inhibitors such as Viagra, Cialis or Levitra.

For men who require fast, effective treatment for erectile dysfunction, Vitaros can also prepare you for intercourse in as little as 5 minutes, and allows you to gain a solid erection for up to 2 hours.

How does Vitaros work?

Vitaros contains a unique skin-permeation enhancer. This means that the active ingredient Alprostadil can be absorbed through the glans of the penis rapidly, where it helps the blood vessels to widen (vasodilation). The result of this process is improved blood flow to the penis and a firmer erection for a more enjoyable sexual experience.

The benefits of Vitaros include:

  • Improved ability to achieve and maintain an erection
  • Increased confidence in your ability to achieve an erection
  • Improved hardness of erection
  • Readiness for sexual activity in as little as 5 minutes

Who is Vitaros suitable for?

Vitaros has been developed for use by men:

  • Regardless of age
  • Who are unable to take other ED medications
  • Who suffer from side effects from other ED medications
  • Who have found other ED medications to be ineffective
  • Who have undergone a prostatectomy (or have had partial removal of the prostate)

How to take Vitaros

Please consult the enclosed patient information leaflet before using Vitaros

Vitaros is designed for application directly to the opening of the penis (meatus). The recommended dosage for Vitaros is a single application of cream, no more than once a day. It is advisable to apply the cream 10-20 minutes before sexual intercourse, although results may be achieved in as little as 5 minutes.

As with impotence treatments taken orally, Vitaros will only cause you to gain an erection when sexually stimulated and will not result in an unmanageable and irreversible hardness throughout the duration of the 4-hour period. Vitaros should not be used more than 2-3 times in a week and should be stored in the fridge. It can be kept outside of the fridge for no longer than 3 days, after which the effectiveness of the medication may be affected.

It is important to note that if your partner is pregnant, has the potential to fall pregnant or is a breast-feeding women, a latex condom must be worn during sexual intercourse.

Vitaros is not suitable for men who suffer from priapism, sickle-cell anaemia, multiple myeloma. If you are unsure whether to take Vitaros, please contact the Patient Support team for advice on 0208 123 0708.


Vitaros (Alprostadil) is available in a 300 microgram cream formulation for topical application to the penis.

Side Effects

Side effects can include mild localised penile irritation (burning, rashes, pain), however, these are reported to be rare and mild to moderate in severity. Similar adverse reactions may be felt by the partners of patients using Vitaros. It is for this reason that the use of latex condoms is advisable for men having intercourse with a pregnant partner, a breast-feeding partner or a partner likely to fall pregnant.

Please note that if you get an erection that lasts for longer than 3-4 hours, you must seek medical advice immediately. Further information on the side effects of Vitaros can be found in the patient information leaflet.

The effects of Vitaros can last for up to 4 hours.

Does Vitaros keep you hard after coming?

Can I take Vitaros with alcohol?
