Vitaros cream is a fast acting treatment for erectile dysfunction. It is manufactured by Ferring Pharmaceuticals Ltd. Vitaros cream can still work for you even if you have nerve damage, unlike PDE5 inhibitor tablets such as Viagra, Cialis, Spedra or Levitra.
Vitaros cream contains 3mg of alprostadil, the active ingredient, in every 1g of cream. Within 5 to 30 minutes, alprostadil makes the blood vessels in your penis get wider to increase blood flow to the area so you can maintain an erection.

About Vitaros cream
How to use Vitaros cream
To use Vitaros cream before sexual activity, you should:
- Remove 1 single-dose container from the fridge.
- Make sure you pee and wash your hands before applying any cream.
- Take the AccuDose container out of the sachet and roll the container in between your hands. This warms it up to room temperature.
- Twist the plunger and take off the cap from the tip of the container.
- Gently squeeze the top of your penis in one hand to open up the hole in the tip of the penis.
- Do not put the AccuDose container tip into your penis. Instead, you should push the plunger, so the cream comes out. The cream should fill the hole in the tip of your penis and run inside too.
- Keep your penis upright for around 30 seconds to allow the cream to go inside your urethra as much as possible. If there’s any extra cream, move it into the hole so you can absorb it.
- Put the cap back on the AccuDose container and wrap it inside the sachet it came from so you can throw it away.
- Wash your hands after applying Vitaros cream, and do not pee.
You can only use each Vitraros cream AccuDose container once. If you leave an unopened Vitaros cream AccuDose container outside of a fridge, you have 3 days to use it before it needs to be thrown away.
With Vitaros cream, you might find you still have an erection after ejaculation.
Vitaros cream is used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) or impotence. Each pack of Vitaros cream contains 4 single-use AccuDose containers that look like tubes with a plunger to make it easy for you to use.
The active ingredient in Vitaros cream is alprostadil, also known as prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). Your body naturally produces PGE1 too.
After you apply Vitaros cream, alprostadil is absorbed into blood vessels in your penis. Alprostadil opens up the blood vessels to make them wider than normal. As a result, more blood can now be delivered to your penis to keep it hard so you can get an erection.
Vitaros cream is available as a 3mg/g cream, so in every 1g of cream, there is 3mg of alprostadil. Each pack of Vitaros cream contains 4 AccuDose containers. You can use 1 Accudose container up to 3 times per week, but not more than once per day.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) can occur after drinking a lot of alcohol or because of stress. You might find ED occurs more often as you get older or if you have damaged blood vessels or nerves in your penis. Cutting down on smoking and losing weight can help improve ED.
ED might only happen once in a while, so you might not have to do anything about it. But if you feel you have ED because you keep losing erections, you need to speak to a doctor.
You can choose between taking tablets or using a cream such as Vitaros cream. These ED treatments are all available from Asda Online Doctor.
You can use Vitaros cream once a day, but a maximum of 2 to 3 times a week. And you can only use each AccuDose container of Vitaros cream once.
Vitaros cream starts to work 5 to 30 minutes after applying it, and the effects last between 1 and 2 hours.
Do not use more than 1 Accudose container of Vitaros cream on the same day.
There may be some reasons why you should not use Vitaros cream, and these include if you:
