Levitra and Vardenafil Prices at Publix, Winn-Dixie, and Fred’s

Publix has the lowest prices for both Levitra and vardenafil. However, if saving time and money is important to you, consider ordering those drugs online from

 For men living in the southeastern United States, Publix, Winn-Dixie, and Fred’s offer some of the most attractive prices for Levitra and vardenafil in the region. The first two are supermarkets, while Fred’s is a discount general merchandise store. Together, these chains have more than 2,000 retail outlets. Most of their stores have full-service pharmacy departments.

This blog post compares prices at those three retailers with those at, a longtime online facilitator based in Tempe, Arizona. For those who prefer the convenience of ordering online, eDrugstore offers significant savings in time and money although its prices for the drugs themselves are generally higher.

Levitra Debuted in 2003

Introduced in 2003, Levitra was the second of the so-called PDE5 inhibitors to win approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In terms of onset of action and duration of action, it is perhaps closest to Viagra, which, of course, was the first of these drugs to debut.

Vardenafil hydrochloride, Levitra’ active ingredient and generic alternative, usually takes effect in 30 to 60 minutes. Its effects last from four to six hours. These figures are only slightly higher than those for Viagra and sildenafil citrate, the little blue pill’s generic alternative.

As the accompanying chart indicates, Publix has the lowest price for Levitra at $51.33 per 20-milligram tablet. To maximize savings, most men buy higher-strength tablets that can then be split in half to yield two doses, effectively getting two for the price of one. Under the usual pharmaceuticals pricing protocol, varying-strength tablets of the same drug are identical in price. Thus it makes more sense to buy 20-milligram tablets and then split them into two 10-milligram doses rather than pay the same price for a 10-milligram tablet. So a 20-milligram tablet of Levitra purchased at Publix yields two 10-milligram doses with a cost of $26.67 each.

Prices Identical at Winn-Dixie, Fred’s

The prices for Levitra at Winn-Dixie and Fred’s are identical — $55.99 for a 20-milligram tablet or $28 per 10-milligram dose.

If you’d prefer to go with generic Levitra, or vardenafil, Publix still has the lowest price — $16.50 ($8.25). Comparable prices at both Winn-Dixie and Fred’s are $18.20 ($9.10).

If you decide that ordering online is the way to go, eDrugstore’s price for Levitra is $74.62 per 20-milligram tablet, or $37.31 per 10-milligram dose. Its price for vardenafil is $70.98 or $35.49 per dose.

Consider Added-Value Services

While its prices are clearly higher than those available at conventional pharmacies, eDrugstore has added-value services that are built into the price of every pill. By ordering online, you cut out the bothersome travel time to and from the pharmacy, not to mention the time wasted while the prescription is filled.

If you don’t have a prescription — and you’ll need one to buy these drugs — eDrugstore offers a complimentary online consultation program. If you opt to take advantage of this service, you’ll be paired up with a licensed U.S. physician who can review your symptoms, medical history, and any medications you’re taking. If you’re determined to be an appropriate candidate for the drug, a prescription will be authorized. This service can save you a bundle of money as well as the time you’d spend traveling to and from the doctor’s office.

Speedy Handling and Shipping

Once your order has been placed, the eDrugstore team fills it expeditiously, packages it discreetly, and sends it off — free of charge — to the destination of your choice. Enclosed with all first orders is a free pill splitter.

In addition to Levitra and vardenafil, eDrugstore carries all other brand-name and generic ED drugs, as well as a limited selection of other lifestyle medications. To learn more, visit its Erectile Dysfunction page.
