Top 3 Ways to Save on the Cost of Viagra Online

Shopping at eDrugstore.com can save you time and money on Viagra, but you can cut the cost even further with a few simple steps. 

Ordering your Viagra or its generic equivalent online from eDrugstore.com can save you time and money even though the online pharmacy’s prices for those drugs are somewhat higher than those at conventional pharmacies.

Those savings in time and money come from the convenience of online ordering and the built-in extras that are included with the drug price. Such complimentary extras include an online consultation with a licensed U.S. physician who can authorize a prescription if appropriate, free shipping, and a complimentary pill splitter shipped with all first orders.

If you’re looking to cut the cost of Viagra even more, here are three easy ways.

1. Order Generic Viagra

If you want to get all the erection-friendly benefits Viagra offers but are content to do so without popping an iconic diamond-shaped blue pill, order a generic version of the drug.

While the generic options are currently limited to two — one from Teva Pharmaceuticals and the other from Greenstone LLC, a Pfizer subsidiary — that is sure to change after April 2020. That month, Pfizer’s final U.S. patents on Viagra will expire, opening the door to expanded generic competition. And more competition is likely to force prices even lower than they are now.

And under the Food and Drug Administration’s strict regulations governing the manufacture and marketing of generic drugs, such medications “must perform the same in the body as the brand-name medicine.” In fact, according to an AARP report published in 2008, generics account for roughly two-thirds of all prescriptions filled in the United States.

2. Split Pills to Cut Costs

Whether you opt for generic Viagra or decide to stick with the original, you’ll save money if you buy double-strength tablets that can be split in half to yield two doses for the price of one. Viagra and its generic equivalents are sold in tablets of 25, 50, and 100 milligrams. The recommended starting dose for the drug is 50 milligrams, a dose that works for the vast majority of men who take Viagra.

Curiously, drug companies usually charge identical prices for a specific drug’s tablets of varying strength. That means that if the price of 10 Viagra tablets of 50 milligrams is $900, that’s the same price you’ll pay for 10 tablets of 100 milligrams. It just makes common sense to buy the higher strength tablets and split them in half to yield 20 doses, effectively giving you two for the price of one.

3. Buy Higher Quantities

You can further boost your savings if you increase the number of pills you order. Fortunately, quantity discounts still prevail.

For example, eDrugstore’s current price for a single Viagra tablet of 100 milligrams is $93.73, including the 9 percent discount currently on offer. Buy 10 tablets for $835.04, and your price per tablet drops more than $10. And if you’re taking the typical 50-milligram dose, your cost per dose is $41.75, down considerably from the cost of $46.87 per dose if you’d bought only a single tablet.

While Viagra and its generic equivalent remain the most popular ED drugs on the market, many men prefer other brand-name or generic medications. These include Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn, and Stendra, as well as the generic equivalents of Cialis and Levitra. Fortunately, eDrugstore stocks them all.

Based in Tempe, Arizona, eDrugstore has been in business since the late 1990s and in addition to its full line of ED drugs also offers a limited selection of other lifestyle medications.
