  • U.S. Licensed Physicians

  • Erasing the Stigma

5-Minute Evaluation

Patients will need to set aside about five minutes to fill out an evaluation form and answer a few questions about their lifestyle and medical history. Patients will also need to provide a government-issued ID and credit card.

The purpose of a patient filling out the online form is to find out if treatment is right for them. Their answers will be analyzed by a physician who will determine what care the patient needs.

If the patient is approved, Roman will find and assign a physician for the patient to work with. Their personal physician will prescribe an ED medication if that is determined to be the best course of treatment.

U.S. Licensed Physicians

All of Roman’s physicians are U.S. licensed physicians. Additionally, each doctor goes through an extensive background check and license verification process.

Whenever a patient is messaging or talking with a Roman physician, they have access to their physician bio which may list medical license, resume, and credentials.

Roman also has a medical advisory board that consists of a former surgeon general, world-renowned clinical directors and medical leaders in several fields including psychology, relationship counseling, men’s health, sexual health, neurology, pulmonology, male infertility, addiction, urology, pathology, and family medicine.

Roman Sexual Health

When Roman was founded, one of its main goals was to help provide men with high-quality medications to help them be successful and feel confident during intimacy. Many companies were selling products online, but the majority of the products were low quality and many of them seemed fraudulent. Since then, Roman has created medications for the following sexual ailments: 

  • Erectile dysfunction — For those men that have struggled to maintaining an erection therefore allowing them to be intimate, Roman offers Viagra (sildenafil) and Cialis (tadalafil). These treatments help the chemicals that allow men to maintain an erection to remain in action longer helping allow for sexual interactions. Once you being treatments, you will remain in contact with your assigned physician to make sure that you are seeing results. (It can take up to 2–3 weeks to start seeing results when using these medications). If you are not experiencing your desired results, you will be able to consult with your physician to see if they feel that your dosage should be increased.
  • Premature ejaculation — To help build endurance during penetration, Roman offers a couple of options. Roman Swipes are 4% benzocaine wipes that help reduce overstimulation without eliminating sensation. Other prescription and over-the-counter medications are also available upon recommendation by your assigned physician.
  • Cold sores — Cold sores (oral herpes) can be treated with Valacyclovir (generic Valtrex). In order to receive medications from Roman, you will need to have already received an in-person diagnosis from a doctor. Once you present this to your Roman physician, they will decide whether treatment is appropriate for you and ship you the medications. Packing for these medications is discreet and unmarked.
  • Genital herpes — Genital herpes is also treated with Valacyclovir. Similar to medications for cold sores, you will need to have an in-person diagnosis from your doctor before a physician can authorize your treatment.

Roman Hair Loss Solutions

Many men in the United States struggle with male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). It is not uncommon for hair follicles to stop producing thick healthy hair and remain dormant. Hair loss medications help these dormant hair follicles to regain health and continue growing healthy hair. Roman specifically offers solutions to help men that are struggling with receding hairlines and thinning on the crown. These two medications are described below: 

  • Finasteride — Finasteride is also known as "Generic Propecia". It is used to help reverse the effects of a receding hairline. Though this medication does not work for every individual, 48% of men treated with it experienced regrowth after just 1 year of treatment. It is a prescriptions medication and sales start at $20 per month.
  • Minoxidil — Also known as "Generic Rogaine", Minoxidil is an over-the-counter treatment used to help those that are experiencing thinning hair on their crowns. According to Roman, 76% of the men that used 5% Minoxidil for a period of 16 weeks experienced hair loss improvement. Sales start at $16 per month and the shipping and billing takes place quarterly.

Roman Daily Health

Roman has taken a holistic approach to men's health. Though it is best known for treating sexual or hair loss concerns, it also offers a number of scientifically backed products for the improvement of your everyday life. Everyday products are known to improve:  

  • Heart health — This solution is made up of magnesium, deodorized garlic bulb powder, vitamin K2, vitamin D3, CoQ10, spirulina, and fish oil
  • Bone health — This solutions is made with vitamin D, calcium, magnesium, silica, boron, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K1, and vitamin K2
  • Stress relief — Formulated ingredients include: ashwagandha, rhodiola rosea, and phosphatidylserine
  • Prostate health — Made with pygeum africanum, selenium, 𝛃-sitosterol, and lycopene
  • Testosterone support — The blend is made with vitamin D3, zinc, magnesium, maca, and ashwagandha
  • Quitting smoking — Roman works with the Zero program to help people accomplish this goal. Some zero products that are offered include bupropion and nicotine gum.
  • Weight management — Roman is working on getting Plenity, its FDA-approved weight management product out to consumers. Of those that have participated in testing, 60% were able to lost at least 5% body weight in conjunction with diet and exercise. 

Free Two-Day Delivery

All orders are shipped out in discreet boxes with all the medication in single-use packs. Roman’s orders are shipped with 2-Day Air to ensure patients get their medications as soon as possible.

However, Roman’s site explains that postal boxes and mail forwarding addresses will receive standard postal shipping and not 2-Day Air.

Erasing the Stigma

Roman co-founder and CEO, Zachariah Reitano was shocked to discover that over 52 percent of men will experience some form of erectile dysfunction. And while the stereotype is that only older men are dealing with ED, that’s actually not the case. Twenty percent of men in their 20s, 30 percent in their 30s and 40 percent in their 40s experience erectile dysfunction.

However, only 18–30 percent ever receive treatment.

That’s why Roman was created: to put an end to the embarrassment and stigma that prevents so many men from going to the doctor. Erectile Dysfunction can be a sign of a much more serious condition, or it can be a sign of heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and depression. It can also simply be a result of unhealthy lifestyle habits.

Reitano says it’s important to remember that, “a guy’s erection is one of the greatest barometers of his overall health.”

The Bad

  • No Prescription Returns

No Prescription Returns 

Roman does not accept returns of prescription products, so all sales are final. If there is an error in the filling of your prescription, however, you can contact Roman's customer service for the problem to be corrected.

The Bottom Line

Roman knows that men don’t like visiting the doctor — especially when it regards their sexual health. To fix this problem, Roman has made it easier for men to access hair loss, daily health, premature ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction medication while making the process extremely discreet. Men can fill out a short online form and talk with a licensed doctor to find the best treatment plan.

However, patients should keep in mind that Roman is not a replacement for their primary care physician (PCP) or any other healthcare provider. In fact, the company strongly urges patients to keep their PCP up-to-date with all treatment plans and prescriptions that Roman is providing.

If you are experiencing challenges with premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, hair loss, or other daily health concerns, we recommend that you consider giving Roman a try.

Roman is a great company. I completed the Dr visit online and it was so simple. They shipped my meds once I was approved and I was able to contact the doctor afterwards without extra co-pays. I had a question and called customer service. They were super fast and helpful about my deliveries.

I'm a 34 year old male and I started to notice my hair was thinning. I knew about roman and some other brands but decided to go with roman since they had a good offering. The process was pretty seamless and I got my meds fast. I haven't dealt with customer service yet so far but I've heard it's good.
