That's interesting. My GP told me that they are not allowed to prescribe these drugs on an NHS scrip under ANY circumstances. The reason being that these drugs are not regarded as essential for health and well being, but simply recreational. An excuse to keep them out of the budget according to the GP. They will provide a private prescription, but it's expensive.
BTW Cialis is much more effective than Viagra. 20 mg is the large size which you can cut in half. Never get the small ones, they work out more expensive.
You can definitely get them prescribed on the NHS as I get them prescribed on the NHS just not by my GP. Like I say both my GP and also the Sex Health clinic said the same GPs can only give them out on the NHS to Diabetics (type 1 I think) and spinal injury people.
The Sex Health clinic has been given a way wider scope to prescribe them on the NHS than GPs have been given.
With regards to the Cialis vs Viagra debate I know Marmalade (I think) is also firmly in the Cialis camp but I was first given Cialis and its effects are not as potent as Viagra. I felt like I didn't know what the fuss was when I took Cialis as it didn't do much.
You feel like you can cut glass with Viagra. It also boosts confidence as you literally feel due to that thickness like you are a proper Dirk Diggler as it gives you the feeling/impression like it is bigger than it is.
Cialis also I have read as its side effect causes back issues which is not good.
To be honest Levitra (Vardenafil) is the one which I think is the best overall and its the middle ground between Cialis and Viagra. It works much longer than viagra, comes into effect quicker and has much less side effects of the three. I just stuck with Viagra as like I say it just makes you feel more confident as it gives you such a strong and potent erection.
