How many/often are MS patients allowed to be prescribed Viagra on the NHS?

Hi,

I saw my Urologist about my ED, who wrote a letter recommending 50mg Viagra to my GP.

After seeing my GP he said they can prescribe 4x 50mg viagra a month, but i thought i read you were allowed 3x tablets a week as an MS sufferer

So does any MS patients here get Viagra on the NHS, what strength, how many per month are you allowed?

does it depend on the surgery or are you allowed more than 4 50mg tabletsper month?

Hi MIke I get 8 x 100mg a month from my GP, John

Ask gp for 100mg and cut in half.

Not an answer to the original post, but I wonder if anyone uses viagra to help with overall MS symptoms. There was a trial in the US which has finished but the results are yet to be published. This followed a claim made in Spain in 2011 that viagra (Sildenafil) cured MS in rats. I must confess that I have tried it and it does help short term with mobility. I am not recommending it just interested in whether this is a happy side effect!. Peter

Mmm here comes the spam post no doubt.

I found that Viagra (or Cialis) aids mobility. I take 1/4 tablet at night. Mobility definitely improved next day.

I currently have it on a repeat prescription, and i havent been made aware of any limitations as to how often i can collect it, i know for sure i collected it twice in space of 3 weeks…that was a good spell :slight_smile:
