Average Prices for Levitra & Vardenafil in September 2019 Were $56.93, $20.84

The average price of 20-milligram vardenafil dropped more than 23 percent from August to September. However, brand-name Levitra’s average price was unchanged from month to month. 

Levitra in 2003 became the second of the revolutionary erectile dysfunction drugs to hit the market, arriving roughly five years after the debut of Viagra. Today, the brand-name drug and its generic equivalent, vardenafil hydrochloride, remain a distant third in the ED medication market, trailing both Viagra/sildenafil and Cialis/tadalafil.

Similar to Viagra in both its onset and duration of action, brand-name Levitra is considerably less expensive than Pfizer’s iconic little blue pill. Likewise, its generic equivalent is less expensive than sildenafil citrate, which is generic Viagra.

Levitra Price Unchanged

According to the Secure Medical monthly price review, the average price for a 20-milligram tablet of brand-name Levitra in September 2019 was $56.93, unchanged from the previous month. The average price for its generic equivalent that month was $20.84.

Secure Medical’s review lists prices for 20-milligram Levitra, which is twice the strength of the drug’s recommended starting dose of 10 milligrams. Twenty-milligram pills can be safely split to yield two 10-milligram doses. Since the price for one pill of either 20 milligrams or 10 milligrams is the same, it just makes sense to buy the higher-strength tablets and split them.

Not All Drugs Can Be Split

It should be noted that not all medications can be split. Some prescription drug tablets are scored making it relatively easy to break them in two. However, consult with your doctor to determine which, if any, of the drugs you are taking can be split effectively and safely.

Compare higher-strength Levitra’s average September 2019 price of $56.93 to that for higher-strength Viagra — $76.99 — and you’ll find that Levitra is about 26 percent less expensive than Viagra. The average price of 20-milligram vardenafil in September was $20.84, nearly 10 percent lower than $23.08 for a comparable-size dose of sildenafil citrate, the generic equivalent of Viagra.

18 Retailers Surveyed

The Secure Medical price review compares prices from a total of 18 prescription drug retailers — 15 brick-and-mortar stores and three online prescription drug services.

Among the three online prescription drug services, only eDrugstore stocks Levitra and vardenafil. Its September 2019 price for Levitra was $74.62, considerably higher than the overall average of $56.93. The price for vardenafil at eDrugstore was $70.98, also higher than the price at brick-and-mortar retailers.
