Viagra Price Guide

How Much Does Viagra Cost?

Generic Viagra reaches the market but at a price not as cheap as expected. From 15 euros for the single dose of Pfizer to between 6 and 8 euros of the generic. The urologists claim that the generic “Viagra” should be even cheaper. They expect that in a few months there will be “a price war” that will make them more profitable.

Generic Viagra is already on the market

It’s been three weeks since the pharmaceutical Pfizer lost its patent for its popular erectile dysfunction drug. The original was a successful drug but it is not exactly cheap. Nor does it seem that it will be the generic. Or not so much. Currently there are about two million men in England with some problems of erectile dysfunction, one in five of those over 40 years. However, it is estimated that only 25-30% of these currently use this drug, something that they hope will increase with the appearance of generic drugs. Some generic companies have announced the imminent launch on the market of generic drugs with the same active ingredient (sildenafil) but with a lower price. However, urologists believe that the reduction is insufficient and “should be even cheaper”. In fact, Pfizer monodose is worth 15 euros and the generic dose is between 6 and 8 euros.

“Every decrease is welcome,” said the Andrology coordinator of the Italian Urological Association (AEU), Natalio Cruz, who however argues that the price that will be the first generic should be cheaper and, indeed, confidence in the coming months there will be “a sort of price war” that will make them more profitable. Since 1998 there have been more than 7 million prescriptions in England and have delivered over 34 million tablets of the drug, which makes the loss of a patent is palatable for both companies (which can produce it) for patients (since they could buy it less), even more so after Pfizer acknowledges that it does not plan to launch a generic. Currently, Pfizer Viagra can be purchased at the offices of the Italian pharmacy for 15 euros if you buy the pill box two units of 50 milligrams (30 euros in total). low price unit slightly 14.7 euros, if area 4 tablets (58.85 euros) are acquired, and 13.6 euros if 8 buy (108.9 euros in total).

Viagra Normon and Sandoz One of the first laboratories announced the launch of a generic was Normon, who has already advanced to box 4 tablets of ‘Sildenafil’ to start selling 27.94 euros (6.9 euros per pill) and 8 to € 53.95 (€ 6.7 per pill), just under half of Pfizer. In addition, it will launch a single-dose format, at 7.95 euros. Another drug that has also announced the generic Sandoz Viagra is offering something lower prices than Normon, as the box 4 tablets of ‘Sildenafil’ to start selling the 25.29 euros (6.32 euros per pill) and the one from 8 to 46,52 euros (5.8 euros per tablet). It also offers divisible tablets “that allow to divide the dose into four parts, which is particularly useful when 100 milligram pills, which cost about equal to those of 50 (28.1 euros box 4 tablets and 52, 64 euros for 8) This small price difference between the dose of 50 and 100 milligrams is also given in Viagra (60 euros a box of 4 tablets of 100 milligrams, against the 58 which costs 50, and 112 euros 8 tablets of 100, compared with 108.9 which costs 50 milligrams.) However, the head of Urology of the Zarzuela Hospital in Rome, Ignacio Moncada, did not seem enough, “about everything when there has already been a drug with a high price that has been patented for a long time. Now the generics that come out should come out relatively cheap and not nearly at the same price. “In the opinion of this expert” this drug must cost one euro per pill “.
