You can get all three types of PDE-5 inhibitors on prescription from your NHS GP, but in some cases you’ll be asked to pay the full cost of the medication (?17-?30 for 4 tablets depending on the pharmacy’s pricing). If you have: diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, polio, prostate cancer, a severe pelvic or spinal injury, spina bifida, or certain genetic conditions, then you may be entitled to an NHS prescription for PDE-5 inhibitors.
Likewise, if you have had one of the following medical treatments, then you may also be entitled to an NHS prescription for erectile dysfunction treatment: pelvic surgery, surgical removal of the prostate gland (prostatectomy), dialysis for kidney failure, a kidney transplant.
If a specialist centre decides that erectile dysfunction is negatively affecting your daily life, mood/behaviour, or your relationships, then they may also prescribe treatment on the NHS.
If you were getting treated for impotence before or on September 14 1998 then you may also be entitled to an NHS prescription (eligibility for impotence treatment was redefined in 1999, and people who were receiving treatment prior to that date are often still allowed to get it on prescription).
