What is Vitaros Cream?

The cream contains 300mcg of the active ingredient Alprostadil. Some men may prefer to use a cream instead of taking a tablet or may find ED tablets are not effective at improving their erections. The cream is applied to the urethra of the penis using an applicator.

It can be prescribed for men over the age of 18 years. The effect usually occurs within 30 minutes after applying Vitaros Cream and lasts for approximately 1-2 hours. 

Vitaros is usually used to treat patients who have tried at least 2 different ED tablets (like sildenafil) and found them ineffective. It may also be helpful for patients who are unable to take other ED treatments.

How does Vitaros cream work?

Vitaros cream contains the active ingredient Alprostadil. This is very similar to a chemical found in the penis that is responsible for dilating the blood vessels of the penis. Alprostadil has the same action on the penis and helps to increase blood flow into the penis, which helps with achieving and maintaining an erection.

Vitaros Cream Alternatives

Vitaros cream may not always be best suited to your needs. Oral tablets are more suitable for some people. Examples include Viagra (or Sildenafil), Levitra (or Vardenafil), Cialis (or Tadalafil).

Some men find counselling helpful because some have erectile dysfunction as a result of psychological problems. If you think your ED is psychological, therapy may provide long term benefits if successful.

FAQ

What is Vitaros Cream?

Vitaros Cream is a cream that contains the active ingredient Alprostadil. It is used to treat erectile dysfunction in men and is applied to the tip of the penis.

How does Vitaros Cream work?

Vitaros Cream works in the same way that oral medicines for erectile dysfunction by increasing the blood flow in the penis. For men who struggle to get or maintain an erection, this increased blood flow allows for longer-lasting and firmer erections.

What is the difference between Vitaros Cream and other ED treatments?

The active ingredient in Vitaros is different to the other oral ED treatments. Vitaros is about as effective as both Viagra (Sildenafil) and Cialis (Tadalafil). ED medications are effective in 70-80% of men who use them. 

Some men may find that one works for them while another one doesn't. It is advised to try an ED medication at least 5 times before giving up.

Can I use Vitaros Cream every day?

No. Vitaros Cream should not be applied more than 2-3 times per week. Vitaros Cream should only be applied once in 24 hours. A Cialis daily tablet may be better suited if you have sex several times per week.

Can I drink when taking Vitaros Cream?

Drinking alcohol can reduce the effectiveness of the medication and should be avoided.

Can I buy Vitaros cream over the counter?

Vitaros, in the UK, is a prescription-only medicine. This means that it must be prescribed by a doctor or healthcare professional. However, you can request to order Vitaros online from our online pharmacy and doctor service.

Our doctors can assess you via an online questionnaire and then prescribe Vitaros if it’s suitable for you. Our Vitaros cream prices start from £12.84/sachet.
