Over half of all Canadian men struggle with being able to get (or keep) a proper erection, yet fewer than 25% of them choose to do anything about it.
Fortunately, ED is pretty easy to treat. So let's make life better and find out which treatment may be right for you.
Erectile dysfunction refers to the inability of a man to get or maintain an erection firm enough for satisfying sexual activity.
ED can have a negative impact on the emotional well-being of men and their partners as it can be tied to self-image and relationship difficulties.
50% of men will experience ED. It is the most common sexual problem in men yet, due to feelings of embarrassment, treatment is often avoided.
Fortunately, ED is pretty easy to treat. Felix doctors can help determine the most effective, safest ED medication for you.
No more clinic waitrooms. Or pharmacy pickups. Or awkward conversations.
We’ll ask you some questions about your medical history, and your symptons.
We carry most generic and brand name medication. If you’re not sure, our medical team can recommend one for you.
We’ll ship your medication to your door, in a discreet package, for free.
At Felix, it’s our goal to make pricing as transparent and easy as the care we provide. Here’s how it works.
Absolutely. You will have the opportunity to select your preferred prescription ED medication while completing your online visit, including both brand name and generic options. As a policy, Felix advocates generic medications as more affordable and more likely to be covered by your insurance plan.
Viagra®’s Canada Health–approved prescribing information claims that “82% of patients reported an improvement in their erections.” Other PDE5 inhibitors (Cialis®, Levitra®) showed similar results.
Oral ED medication is generally considered extremely effective and studies show it works for the majority of men, but not all.
Other treatment options for ED include lifestyle improvements (e.g., exercise, diet, quitting smoking, limiting alcohol use), surgery, penile vacuum pumps, and other ED medications. Every treatment comes with risks and benefits that you should fully understand before moving forward with it.
Blood pressure is an important factor in determining whether it is safe for you to use prescription ED medication. To complete your online visit, it is essential that you are accurate and honest about your blood pressure and that it was taken within the last 6 months. When used improperly, these medications can cause serious harm or even death. If you haven’t had your blood pressure taken within the last 6 months, you can get a free blood pressure range at most retail pharmacies or at a clinic.
ED medication filled via Felix has a starting cost of $48 per month. The price will vary based on the drug chosen, the province it is shipped to, and the refill schedule chosen.
Currently, telemedicine appointments are not covered so you will be charged for a $40 fee for each online visit with a Felix doctor.
Medication coverage varies greatly between different plans, provinces and has specific criteria that determine eligibility. We recommend that you upload your private and/or provincial benefit card during the online visit so that our pharmacy partner can apply any coverage you are eligible for before shipping your meds.
