REX MD is a member of the American Telehealth Association. The brand helps males with concerns about sexual health, hair loss, and other health conditions.

REX MD’s website mentions that many males may feel uncomfortable discussing their health concerns at a doctor’s clinic. 2019 research shows that strong beliefs and social norms, attitudes, and stereotypes about masculinity stop men from seeking medical care and harm men’s health.

Additionally, the authors write that men may find accessing care more difficult due to short opening hours at in-person clinics.

REX MD offers remote medical care and a range of products that may retail at a lower price than similar products from a traditional pharmacy. The company aims to help men access medical care.

The platform offers:

  • medications from licensed distributors
  • personalized treatment plans
  • free shipping
  • free unlimited doctor follow-ups after treatment

According to the website, individuals may contact their assigned doctor through the company’s member portal.

At the time of publication, REX MD has an average review rating of 4.7 out of 5 on its website. The brand also has a 4.5 rating on Trustpilot.

Positive reviews focus on the quality of the company’s online services and products.

However, negative critiques revolve around customer service and shipping issues. Some people also said they had difficulties in securing refunds from REX MD.

On the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website, the company has a C+ rating, although it is not BBB accredited. The average score from just over 30 customer reviews is 1.12 out of 5.

Customers found REX MD useful for erectile dysfunction medication, but many had problems with shipping, refunds, and receiving correct orders.

Erectile dysfunction treatments

  • Price range: $3–90 per dose

People with erectile dysfunction (ED) may be unable to sustain an erection firm enough to engage in sexual activity.

Some medications that REX MD doctors may prescribe for ED include:

Sildenafil (Viagra)

REX MD offers Viagra and sildenafil, the generic form of Viagra. Both come in tablets of 25, 50, and 100 milligrams (mg).

Per dose, it costs $10 for sildenafil and $90 for Viagra.

However, sildenafil may not be safe for people with:

Tadalafil (Cialis)

This FDA-approved medication comes in four strengths: 2.5, 5, 10, and 20 mg.

People take this medication as and when they need it. People should not take more than one dose a day.

The prescribing information for the drug states people can take it as needed before sexual activity. It recommends people start at 10 mg and increase or decrease the dose depending on how effective it is and the side effects it produces.

Some side effects may include headache, nausea, facial flushing, or muscle aches.

Per dose, tadalafil costs $10, and Cialis costs $29.

Daily tadalafil

This drug comes in 2.5 and 5 mg. People must take it every day.

The British National Health Service (NHS) writes that the effects of tadalafil can last over 24 hours.

As such, people should not take 10 or 20 mg tablets every day. It also notes that the drug is most effective when a person is already sexually stimulated.

It costs $3 per dose.

Premature ejaculation treatments

  • Price range: $14.95–29.95

People with premature ejaculation experience an orgasm sooner than they want to during sexual activity. REX MD offers the following treatments:


Doctors may prescribe sertraline, which REX MD offers as a monthly supply. Individuals may take this antidepressant medication every morning or 4–8 hours after engaging in sexual activity. Some may prefer taking it only when they plan to have sex.

However, the medication can cause side effects, such as:

It costs $24 per month.

Performance Wipes

A person uses these wipes to desensitize the penis, which may delay orgasm.

They contain 4% benzocaine, which is a mild, topical local anesthetic.

REX MD recommends people use a wipe a few minutes before sex.

Experts write that more research is needed to determine the effectiveness and risks of these products.

A 1-month supply costs $14.95, and a 3-month supply $29.95.

Hair loss treatment

  • Price range: $20–58

A 2023 study notes that male androgenetic alopecia, the most common form of hair loss, affects 30–50% of men by the time they turn 50 years of age.

To treat hair loss, REX MD doctors can prescribe a 1- or 3-month supply of oral finasteride. Finasteride is an FDA-approved drug for androgenetic alopecia. Its brand name is Propecia.

2022 research notes that finasteride may slow hair loss but not completely stop it.

A 1-month supply costs $20, while a 3-month supply costs $58.

Herpes treatments

  • Price range: $15–40 a month

A REX MD doctor may prescribe valacyclovir if a person has oral or genital herpes.

It is an FDA-approved antiviral medication that may treat or prevent outbreaks of oral and genital herpes. The brand name for valacyclovir is Valtrex.

The company offers this treatment on a “per outbreak basis” and for off-label daily use to suppress the virus. Off-label means the FDA has not approved the drug for an alternative condition or dosage.

For a one-outbreak supply, REX MD charges $15 a month. For a three-outbreak supply, it charges $40 every 3 months.

Primary care treatments

  • Price range: depends on the medication

The REX MD platform offers online medical consultations, where people can discuss their symptoms and receive a diagnosis. A doctor may then prescribe medications, after which individuals choose between rush delivery or pickup from a local pharmacy.

Some conditions that REX MD healthcare professionals may treat include:

REX MD offers a free online visit with a person’s first monthly order. People must then pay a recurring monthly fee. However, REX MD offers discounts if an individual signs up for 3 or more months of membership and prescription refills.

The pricing varies depending on the medication a healthcare professional prescribes. The following table describes some of the costs of the medication that REX MD offers.
