How Can I Save Money on Viagra?

High prescription drug prices make it imperative to comparison-shop for the medications you need.


Viagra has been hailed as a miracle drug by millions of impotent men who have taken the drug to temporarily regain normal
erectile function.

And as is the case with miracle drugs, its price has been a bit steep in the 20 years it’s been on the market.

The arrival of generic Viagra has begun to exert downward pressure on prices charged for the brand-name drug, a trend that’s likely to accelerate over the next few years.

However, here are some tips to ensure you get the best possible deal for your money.

  • Use a pill splitter.  Viagra is sold in tablets of 25, 50, and 100 milligrams. The 50-milligram tablet is the recommended starting dose, although some men find that they can do just fine with 25 milligrams. You will pay virtually identical prices for the same number of tablets  regardless of strength. With a pill splitter, you can take five 100-milligram tablets and quickly turn them into 10 doses of 50 milligrams each.
  • Comparison shop. Prices at major U.S. pharmacy chains and big box stores vary so make sure you’re getting the lowest available price. And don’t forget to compare those prices with those from online facilitators such as eDrugstore.com. More about that later.
  • Use coupons: Visit websites such GoodRx.com and WellRx.com, which offer coupons that you can use to further reduce prices at major drug retailers.
  • Switch to generic Viagra: Sildenafil citrate, the generic alternative to Viagra, is less expensive than the brand-name drug but must contain the same active ingredient under FDA regulations.
  • Buy from an online facilitator: Buying from a reputable online supplier, such as eDrugstore.com, can save you both time and money.

    Skip the costly visit to a doctor’s office and take advantage of eDrugstore’s offer of a complimentary consultation with a licensed U.S. physician who can authorize a prescription if appropriate. All first orders come with a free pill splitter.
