Cialis and Tadalafil Prices at Amazon

Building on their successful acquisition of pharmaceutical packaging firm PillPack, Amazon jumped into the retail pharmacy arena with the 2020 rollout of Amazon Pharmacy.


The retail giant has a reputation for driving prices down, usually by aggressively undercutting their competition and beating them with sales volume. Read this article to get the essentials on Amazon’s new endeavor before we get into the weeds to see if they really beat the competition.

Amazon Pharmacy Prices: Deal or Not?

Yes and no. Amazon Pharmacy’s cash prices for the popular erectile dysfunction medications Cialis and tadalafil are unclear and a bit puzzling. That’s because their pricing for each drug doesn’t seem to be reported uniformly on their website. 

For instance, in February 2021, Cialis 10 milligrams was listed as $339.20 for five tablets (five-day supply at one per day), but Cialis 20 milligrams was priced as $1274.40 for 20 tablets (10-day supply at two per day).

To standardize things a bit, we’ll be calculating and reporting the price per tablet, obtained by simply dividing the listed price by the listed quantity. Then we’ll compare that value with the average prices for each drug across 16 major retail and online pharmacies surveyed by eDrugstore.com. Keep in mind that these are all the cash price you’d pay without prescription insurance.

Cialis Prices at Amazon Pharmacy

Here’s our breakdown for Cialis prices at Amazon Pharmacy:

Cialis 10 milligrams

Doing the math for Cialis 10 milligrams ($177.35 for 5 tablets) gives us a per-tablet cost of $35.47 apiece. That’s a substantial increase in April 2022, and puts it just 50 cents below the average price.

Cialis 20 milligrams

At a price of $70.94 per tablet, Amazon Pharmacy comes in at $1 below average. It also saw a substantial increase from March into April 2022.

Tadalafil Prices at Amazon Pharmacy

Tadalafil 10 milligrams

Amazon’s per-tablet price for tadalafil 10 milligrams is 94 cents in April 2022, back to its February 2022 price. Buying 20 milligram tablets and splitting them in half is usually a better deal, yet this pricing is precisely half of what Amazon sells a 20 milligram tablet for. Several other retail outlets have lower prices, up to 50 cents less. 

Tadalafil 20 milligrams

Amazon Pharmacy’s price of a 20 milligram pill is $1.88, which is well below the industry average of $9.61. It even dropped a few cents while the average rose.

That said, several retail supermarkets we track are beating this price, some coming in up to almost $1 less. Price out this generic before automatically turning to Amazon.

The Final Word (for now)

Amazon’s prices have been good in the past, but these sudden price swings indicate that it can’t be relied on for important medication.
