 Viagra to be Sold by Boots
Men who are embarrassed to speak about their sexual issues to their GPs can now hop to Boots instead. This is because the ED pill Viagra will be available with local chemists as well.

The move follows a successful pilot test in the Manchester area, where men travelled from all over the UK to buy the pills.

Boots Medical Director Graham Marshall assured that pharmacists would remain alert to signs of other medical problems in men who want to buy Viagra as erectile dysfunction is associated with abnormal glucose, cholesterol or blood pressure levels.

This is needed as the pilot program had referred 288 patients to doctors. These patients had other issues like blood pressure. A pre-screening questionnaire will be completed by patients who will then have a 30-minute consultation with the pharmacist for 55 pounds ($90.20).

Four Viagra pills will be provided at the first visit and thereafter consumers will have to pay 26.59 pounds for a further four tablets.
