Cialis, Viagra, Levitra, etc. prices have soared over the last few years, making them unaffordable for many men, myself included. I cannot do anything about my E.D. without going way over my budget, which I cannot afford to do. I have heard stories about patent expirations, generic brands, price reduction, and even OTC Cialis. Additionally, I've heard that other countries sell them a lot cheaper than the U.S. but also heard it's illegal to purchase them overseas, and even if were legal, who could I actually trust? Is any of this true? I would appreciate any input you have.
Pharmaceuticals are insanely overpriced in the US (one med that I take costs 100 times as much in the US; unsubsidized retail price). I doubt that anyone really cares as long as they have a healthy bottom line. The government is happy as long as rich people get richer.
Bruce; Of the one's on the market right now none have a generic so they keep making as much as they can. Every time you have to go in the office see if the doctor has some samples. And keep checking Viagra was the first one on the market so it should be the first to come out with a generic and they don't tell the doctor or pharmacist when because we would not buy as much knowing the generic is on its way. Right now that is the only hope. And you must be very careful some people try to sell fake one's or some that come from another country and have little to none of the drugs in it. But they don't recommend it because none of the tablets are scored but had a lot of people buy their prescription for the stronger like Viagra and cut them with a razor and try to see what they really need also the others just get it as close as you can to the 1/2 dose. Also, type their names in the top and see in the search bar if anyone of them offer any discount from the manufacturer. It's worth trying
A secret nobody knows or wants to share. Their is actually a generic for Sildenafil (Viagra) but its aimed at pulmonary hypertension but its exactly the same drug. Its trade name is Revatio and comes in 20mg tablets and even if insurance doesn't cover it thats ok because its dirt cheap. If you have a realistic Dr who is halfway cool they should write you an Rx and 1 to 3 of those tabs should do the trick
