British Drug Stores Start Selling Blinding Viagra Over the Counter

Here's one way to stem the tide of negatives surrounding the blinding erectile dysfunction drug, Viagra, in addition to giving it away: Selling it over-the-counter (OTC) just in time for Valentine's Day.

The Boots pharmacy chain in the UK starts selling Viagra tomorrow at three locations in Manchester, but, thankfully, it won't be free. For the princely sum of 50 pounds ($97 American dollars), male patients can buy up to four pills, however, only after an hour-long consultation, including checks of cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar.

What's more, any patient wanting a second go with Viagra -- should their health survive it -- would need a prescription. Fact is, these alternatives listed below treat sexual dysfunction far more safely and just as effectively as a drug that may blind you or contribute to heart problems or infertility.
