This is a generic product, therefore depending on availability, the brand you receive may not be the same as the one pictured.
Vitaros (Alprostadil) is an alternative, fast-acting prescription medication for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Designed for topical use, in the form of disposable individual applicators, Vitaros Is suitable for men who require an alternative to ED treatments that come in pill form. Studies show that Vitaros, once applied, can take effect within 5 minutes and may last from 1-2 hours.
How it works
Vitaros contains a unique skin-permeation enhancer that facilitates the absorption of Alprostadil through the glans of the penis. Once absorbed, Alprostadil causes vasodilation of the blood vessels and an increase in the blood flow into the penis. This subsequently leads to an erection, usually within a short space of time.
How to take it
Please consult the enclosed patient information leaflet before using Vitaros. Vitaros is designed for application directly to the opening of the penis (meatus). Detailed information on how to apply Vitaros can be found in the patient information leaflet, or by contacting our Patient Support team on 0208 123 0703.
The recommended dosage for Vitaros is a single application of cream, no more than once a day, applied 10-20 minutes before sexual intercourse. Vitaros should not be used more than 2-3 times in a week.
Vitaros 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.
