London, Apr 21 (ANI): Doctors in Britain are rationing supplies of Viagra in a bid to save the NHS cash.

Viagra is a lifeline for millions of fellas who struggle to perform between the sheets, and now some patients are being limited to just one little blue pill a week.

One GP in Haringey, north London, who did not want to be named, said that he has to ration the treatment on the orders of local health bosses.

“It’s one of the first things to go because it is not an essential medical pill,” the Daily Star quoted him as saying.

“This is still a very popular drug but times are tough and it is not life-saving. The rule is one pill a week,” he added.

It has also been revealed that there are more needy patients in the north than down south, with most in Knowsley, Merseyside, where GPs dish out 148,000 pounds worth of the sex drug every year. (ANI)
