Many of you are experiencing price gouging at $10 – $14 a pill for your erectile dysfunction medications. I was reminded today by a patient, who takes 50 mg of Viagra as needed, that we can save you some money. Here is what you need to know before you spend the dough:

1) Viagra will cost roughly the same amount per pill whether it’s 25 mg, 50 mg or 100mg. Have your doctor prescribe you a 100 mg pill which you can cut in half or in fourths 30 minutes prior to intercourse. Those six 100 mg tablets that your insurance company allows will last you longer.

2) The same goes for Cialis which comes in 2.5 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg and 20 mg doses. Ask your doctor about prescribing the 10 mg or 20 mg tablets, which you can cut into smaller doses to use prior to intercourse.

3) Levitra is also available in escalating doses, so you can get a prescription for a 10 mg tablet and break it in half as needed.

4) Viagra is set to become generic in March 2012, so this game will change for the better for patients. We hope.

What have you paid?

All strengths of Viagra tend to be priced from $10 to as much as $25 per pill. Cialis varies in pricing, from around $5 per pill for the 2.5 mg and 5 mg doses, to as much as $20 – $30 for the 10 mg and 20 mg doses. All strengths of Levitra tend to be priced from $15 – $20 per pill. All three are not covered by many insurance plans, but will likely be considered Tier 2 or Tier 3 medications when they are covered, meaning a moderate to high co-pay.

Update for clarification:

The patent for Viagra was approved by the FDA for Pfizer on March 27th 1998 and expires March 27th 2012. Whether or not someone (a drug company) will make and market a generic version once the patent expires is not yet known.

Teva pharmaceuticals tried to market a generic Viagra (sildenafil ) starting March 2012 when Pfizer’s patent was set to run out. Pfizer sued Teva in Federal Court and won in August 2011. So, Teva can’t market an erectile dysfunction drug, BUT sildenafil (the drug which is the active ingredient in Viagra ) still comes up for grabs in 2012. It sounds confusing, but though it will be until 2019 before anyone but Pfizer could market sildenafil as an impotence drug, it will still be available in 2012. Tricky I know, but there is a lot of money at stake so games are being played.

Viagra, Cialis, Levitra: Which Is the Best Value per Dose?

If impotence is interfering with your sex life, there are drugs that can help overcome your problem.

You’re in the market for a drug to help you reclaim your sex life, which seems to be slipping away because of your inability to achieve and maintain an erection. You’ve seen TV commercials and print advertising for several products that promise they can get the job done, but you’re not sure which one to choose.

First and foremost, as a savvy shopper, you’d like to get the most bang for your buck, if you’ll pardon the pun.

Cialis for Daily Use Is Best Buy

A quick comparison of side-by-side drug prices, as posted online by ViaMedic.com, reveals that the best buy per dose is Cialis for Daily Use. which comes in at just under $9 per tablet or $269 for 30 tablets, a month’s supply. If you find that Cialis works well for you and the idea of taking an ED drug daily appeals to you, then Cialis for Daily Use is clearly your best buy.

However, if you’re in the market for an impotence drug and want to find the one best suited for your lifestyle and personal needs, you probably should take the time to learn more about these medications and eventually try them to see which works best for you and at what dosing level.

Fortunately, ViaMedic provides all the tools necessary to put you on the track to overcoming your erection dysfunction problems. And you won’t have to leave the comfort of your home to get the job done.

But, first, we need to get you up to speed on the problem you’re trying to solve and the three best-selling impotence drugs — Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra — that are designed to help resolve the problem.

Whether you call it impotence or erection dysfunction, your problem is an inability to achieve and maintain an erection that is strong enough for sexual activity. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center. most cases of ED are caused by physiological factors, such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, neurological disease, and the side effects of medications. To achieve a strong erection, the blood flow to your penis must be strong, so physical factors that impede healthy circulation are at the heart of the problem.

Other Causes of ED

If your ED is not caused by a physical problem, it probably falls into one of two other categories: psychological or lifestyle. According to the medical center, psychological causes include anxiety, depression, and stress. Lifestyle choices that may interfere with your ability to get and keep a strong erection include heavy use of alcohol and/or drugs and smoking.

Viagra, the first of the ED drugs to hit the market, comes in diamond-shaped tablets in a distinctive shade of blue.

The three top-selling impotence drugs are particularly useful in overcoming ED that’s physiological in origin, although they can help to some degree with impotence traceable to psychological factors or lifestyle choices.

Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra are all members of a family of drugs known as phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors, or PDE5 inhibitors. They work by temporarily blocking the effects of an enzyme that resides in the smooth muscle cells of blood vessels throughout the body, including the penis. By inhibiting the effects of PDE5, these drugs allow the walls of these blood vessels to relax, increasing the intensity of blood flow to all the organs they supply. You can learn more about the way in which these drugs work by reading an article that originally appeared in “Circulation,” a weekly journal published by the American Heart Association.

All Three Work the Same

Because Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra all work in much the same way, it’s unlikely that one of the three will work for you, while the others will not. What very well may vary, however, is the strength of the dose you may need to achieve a satisfactory erection.

Until you know how much of a drug you need to get to that goal, it’s impossible to pinpoint which one is the best buy for you.

Although you probably will know when your equipment is in good working order, doctors and some men with ED use the four-point Erection Hardness Scale, which is a good way to gauge both the severity of your impotence and the way your penis responds after taking one of the PDE5-inhibiting drugs.

Possible EHS Scores

A score of 1 on the EHS indicates that the penis is larger than normal but not hard. If the penis is hard but not hard enough for penetration, it gets a score of 2, while a score of 3 indicates that the penis is not completely hard but is hard enough for penetration. When the penis is completely hard and fully rigid, it gets the top score of 4.

The recommended dose for each of these popular impotence drugs is generally considered a starting point. Depending on how strong — or weak — an erection you achieve at that dosage level, your doctor may move you to a larger or smaller dose.

For example, the recommended dose for Viagra, known generically as sildenifil citrate, is 50 milligrams, according to RxList.com. If the results at that level are weak, the patient can go a step higher to the 100-milligram tablet. If, however, the 50-milligram dose produces a very strong erection, it’s possible that a 25-milligram dose will do the job. Viagra should be taken 30 minutes to an hour before sexual activity, and its effects can last from four to five hours.

Cialis, which is known generically as tadalafil, also comes in tablet form but is available in two versions. Cialis for Daily Use should be taken daily, even if no sexual activity is anticipated on a given day. The recommended dose for this version of Cialis is 2.5 milligrams daily, which can be bumped up to 5 milligrams if the original dose isn’t strong enough. Taken daily, this form of Cialis should allow those who take it to engage in sexual activity whenever the need arises.

Cialis also comes in a stronger version, known as Cialis for Use as Needed. The recommended dose is 10 milligrams but can be bumped up to 20 milligrams or down to 5 milligrams depending on how well the patient responds to the initial dose. This is the longest-lasting of the ED drugs, and it can be effective up to 36 hours after it is taken.

The recommended dose for Levitra (vardenafil hydrochloride) is 10 milligrams and should be taken 60 minutes before sexual activity. Its effects usually last four to six hours. Depending on how well you react at the 10-milligram level, your doctor may increase your dose to 20 milligrams or cut it back to 5 milligrams.

To order from ViaMedic, you’ll need a prescription from your doctor or one of ViaMedic’s contracted physicians. Online consultations are free.

ViaMedic.com carries all three of the major impotence drugs, including both forms of Cialis, as well as a variety of other pharmaceutical products. You’ll need a doctor’s prescription to order any of these drugs, but if you don’t already have a prescription from your own doctor, ViaMedic can set up an online consultation with one of its contracted physicians. There is no charge for such consultations. And unlike many of the so-called online pharmacies, ViaMedic sells only FDA-approved, brand-name medications that are manufactured in the United States.

Now to the specifics on pricing. As you’ve already seen, you’ll need to know what dose works for you to do any comparative pricing. However, here’s the framework of ViaMedic’s price schedule for impotence drugs.

Thanks to flat pricing, a common practice among pharmaceutical companies, most of the ED drugs available through ViaMedic cost the same per pill even at differing strengths. For example, you’ll pay the same amount for Viagra pills whether you’re buying 50-milligram tablets or 100-milligram tablets. Three 50- or 100-milligram Viagra tablets cost $122 and come with a pill-splitter. If you’re fortunate enough to get the results you want from 50 milligrams of Viagra, buying three 100-milligram tablets and then splitting them gives you six doses at a cost of $20.33 per dose. (To learn more about the dos and don’ts of pill-splitting check out this article at WebMD.com .)

ViaMedic sells Levitra in 10- and 20-milligram tablets. Three tablets of either strength cost $122. If 10-milligram strength Levitra produces the response you’re looking for, you can buy three 20-milligram tablets and split them for a per-dose cost of $20.33, which puts them dead-even with Viagra per dose.

Cialis for Use as Needed costs considerably more than either Viagra or Levitra, but it’s significantly longer lasting — up to 36 hours, compared with four to six hours for the others. Six tablets of 20-milligram Cialis for Use as Needed cost $262.80. This form of Cialis should not be split, which puts the per-dose price at $43.80.

Cialis for Daily Use

As previously noted, our best buy is Cialis for Daily Use. which costs $269 for 30 tablets, which puts the cost per dose at just under $9. However, to be effective, this form of the drug must be taken daily.

If, however, you expect to participate in sexual activity far less frequently, you might be better served by buying one of the other ED medications for occasional use.

To further increase your savings, you can buy in larger quantities once you’ve decided which medication you prefer and at what strength.

Cialis is a popular treatment for erectile dysfunction.

Cialis was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in November 2003.

It was the third prescription medication for erectile dysfunction (ED) that was approved in the US, after Viagra and Levitra, and is distributed and marketed worldwide by a company called Lilly ICOS, LLC, which is a joint venture between ICOS Corporation and Eli Lilly.

Cialis is available in four doses: 2.5 mg, 5 mg, 10 mg, and 20 mg. The typical starting dose in 10 mg, but men have room to maneuver upward or downward in terms of dosage if they find that the 10 mg dosage isn’t quite right for them. The active ingredient in Cialis is a substance called tadalafil, which belongs to a class of drugs known as PDE-5 inhibitors. Viagra and Levitra are also PDE-5 inhibitors. Typically, Cialis is taken on an “as-needed” basis for erectile dysfunction.

How Does Cialis Differ from Viagra and Levitra?

Cialis differs in two fundamental ways from Viagra and Levitra. The main difference, and one that Lilly ICOS has used heavily in marketing Cialis, is that it has a much longer half-life: 36 hours, versus 4 to 6 hours for Viagra and Levitra. You may have seen Cialis advertised as “The Weekend Pill,” on the logic that a man could take Cialis on Friday night and still feel the effects on Sunday morning.

The other main way Cialis differs from Viagra and Levitra is that it can be taken at a low dosage in a daily regimen. Typically, daily Cialis is taken at a 5 mg dosage, though some men take the 2.5 mg dosage with good results. Cialis daily therapy is also used to treat symptoms of a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia, which is a fairly common, non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland.

How Much Does Cialis Cost in the United States?

Cialis isn’t cheap, but then neither are Viagra or Levitra. The drug won’t go off-patent in the United States until 2017, so don’t expect price relief for another couple of years. If you are prescribed the typical 10 mg dosage of Cialis, you’ll pay around $41 per tablet.

Viagra and Levitra are a few dollars cheaper per tablet, but Cialis can last far longer, so the extra cost of Cialis may be worth it to some men. For example, over the course of a weekend, a man may need to take 2 Viagra or Levitra (You’re not supposed to take more than one in a 24-hour period), but he may experience relief from ED for the entire weekend with only one Cialis. The following table lists prices per 10 mg tablet at a selection of pharmacies in five cities. As you can see, there’s not a lot of variation in price, but shopping around could save you a dollar or so per tablet.

Another Safe Way to Acquire Cialis

When you obtain Cialis from your physician, of course, you also have to factor in the cost of your time and the cost of visiting your doctor in terms of your co-payment or payment toward your health insurance deductible. Then there is the time cost of taking the prescription to a pharmacy and having it filled.

You can end up cooling your heels for a long time in a busy pharmacy.

Another option that many men have discovered to be quite convenient is using an online medical facilitator. These services allow you to submit your Cialis prescription via fax or email, and if you don’t have a prescription, they can connect you with a doctor who can evaluate your medical history and, if you’re a good candidate for Cialis, write an online prescription, which is then filled by the medical facilitator. Some medical facilitators charge for a medical consultation and some don’t, so ask if you’re not sure. Even if Cialis costs more per pill through a medical facilitator, the savings on the medical consultation and the convenience of online ordering and quick home delivery make it a preferable option for many men.

Evaluating Your Choices

One thing you should never do if you’re considering taking Cialis for ED is to turn to sketchy online sites offering what they claim to be Cialis at an unusually low price. Medications for ED are among the most commonly counterfeited, for several reasons. Mainly, counterfeiters do it to make money. But they also know that a lot of men, despite more openness about ED, don’t want to talk to a doctor about the problem and are willing to take chances ordering from an online “pharmacy” offering it without a prescription for a low price.

If you find Cialis (or Viagra or Levitra) online at a price significantly cheaper than what you’d pay at your local pharmacy, you can bet it’s counterfeit, and there’s no telling what it’s made of. It could be made from relatively harmless filler ingredients, or it could contain dangerous ingredients. Counterfeit Viagra has been found to contain a number of potentially dangerous ingredients. Work with your own physician or a trusted online medical facilitator to obtain Cialis, because the risks of rogue online pharmacies are simply too great.

Cialis is an enormously popular medication for erectile dysfunction. It has been taken safely by millions of men, who love the convenience of either daily Cialis therapy or taking it on an as-needed basis and enjoying long-lasting relief from ED.
