Hope this helps:

U.S. men seeking a generic version of Viagra (sildenafil citrate) – the first and the most popular prescription drug for Erectile Dysfunction (ED) – are going to have to wait for a few more years. Viagra’s patent, originally scheduled to expire in late March of 2012, has been extended to April of 2020. That’s good news for the manufacturer, Pfizer, Inc., of course, but it’s also good news for patients suffering from Erectile Dysfunction.

Of course but probably not soon. Drug companies spend a lot of energy finding ways to cut corners on clinical trials so the drug can be approved as quickly as possible. Then they send teams of lawyers to fight to pro-long the patent rights as many years as possible. And they charge 3 times as much for their products in the US as in other countries-because they can.

Hello Joseph-John. There are other drugs that help treat ED. You might consider taking one and seeing how that helps, instead of Viagra. Have a great week, good health, pledge

What my hubby and I just did when he needed a refill for Vitamin V ... was get the 100 mg tabs -- 10 of them cost us about $120 versus $242. for 10 of the 50 mg... and he can just cut them in half ... and we are getting 20 "goes" for less than the 50 mg :)
