SILVASTA™ contains sildenafil, the same active ingredient as in other leading ED medicine brands such as Avigra® and Viagra®.
Our pharmacist will run through a checklist to ensure SILVASTA™ is right for you. This will only take a few minutes and includes a heart and blood pressure check. Some men should not take ED medicine, e.g. men on certain medicines, or men who have had a recent heart attack or stroke, so your pharmacist will need to ask you some general health questions to ensure that SILVASTA is appropriate for you.
That’s it you’re done!
Repeat supplies will only take a few minutes to supply, provided your health hasn’t changed since.
