Cialis and Tadalafil Prices at Meijer, Hy-Vee, and Medicine Shoppe

Meijer and Hy-Vee have identical prices for Cialis, but Hy-Vee’s price for tadalafil is lower than Meijer’s. However, if the convenience of online ordering appeals to you, eDrugstore.com might be your best choice. 

Among ED medications, Cialis and its generic equivalent, tadalafil, are second only to Viagra and sildenafil in terms of sales, according to a May 2019 report from CNBC.com.

The report cited data from GoodRx.com, which said Cialis and tadalafil accounted for 30 percent of all ED prescriptions filled in the final month of 2018 and the first month of 2019. That put Cialis a distant second to Viagra and sildenafil, which accounted for 65 percent of all ED prescriptions.

3 Conventional Retailers Surveyed

In our continuing review of the latest prices for ED and other lifestyle medications at major U.S. retailers, this blog post focuses on Cialis/tadalafil prices at Meijer, Hy-Vee, and Medicine Shoppe International. Meijer and Hy-Vee each operates nearly 250 supermarkets in the Midwest, while Medicine Shoppe International, part of Cardinal Health, is America’s largest chain of franchised pharmacies scattered across the United States.

For comparison’s sake, this post also looks at the prices for both Cialis and tadalafil at eDrugstore.com, a longtime online facilitator based in Tempe, Arizona. This allows those who prefer the convenience of ordering their drugs online to compare those prices with those posted at conventional retailers. However, eDrugstore prices include more than just the medication itself but a handful of added-value services that can save you a great deal of time and money.

As you can see from the accompanying chart, the prices for Cialis at both Meijer and Hy-Vee are identical, $75.34 for a 20-milligram tablet, which when split in half yields two 10-milligram doses at $37.67 each. Only slightly higher is Medicine Shoppe, which charges $75.91 for a 20-milligram tablet of Cialis, which yields two 10-milligram doses at a cost of $37.96 each when the larger tablet is split in half.

Tadalafil Lowest at Hy-Vee

Of the three brick-and-mortar retailers included in this price update, prices for tadalafil were available only at Meijer and Hy-Vee. A 20-milligram tablet of generic Cialis is $23.70 ($11.85) at Meijer and $20.70 ($10.35) at Hy-Vee.

Comparable prices at eDrugstore are $94.64 for a 20-milligram tablet of Cialis, which produces two 10-milligram doses at a cost of $47.32 each. The online facilitator’s price for 20-milligram tadalafil is $44.59, or $22.30 per 10-milligram dose.

Order Online to Save Time, Money

While the online prices for these drugs are clearly higher than those at brick-and-mortar retailers, cross-checking prices offers only part of the picture. By ordering online, you’ll skip the bothersome travel to and from the pharmacy as well as any time spent waiting for the prescription to be filled.

To buy either Cialis or tadalafil, you’ll need a doctor’s prescription. To get that, you’ll need to schedule time off work to visit your doctor’s office and also shell out a copay or doctor’s fee.

This tedious step can be avoided altogether if you avail yourself of eDrugstore’s complimentary online consultation service. You’ll be paired with a licensed U.S. physician who will review your symptoms, medical history, and other drugs you’re taking before determining if you’re an appropriate candidate for the drug. If so, a prescription will be authorized. Your savings in time and money can be very significant indeed if you use this service.

Shipping Is Free

Once you’ve placed an order, it will be promptly filled, discreetly packaged, and sent off to the destination of your choice free of charge. Enclosed with all first orders is a free pill splitter.
