Viagra and Sildenafil Prices at Walgreens

Walgreens has offered competitive prices for both Viagra and the generic sildenafil throughout 2021 and into 2022. However, you can save time and money by ordering these prescription medications online at eDrugstore.com.


Viagra, the world’s most popular prescription lifestyle medication, treats erectile dysfunction (ED) by relaxing muscles and increasing blood flow to the penis. Viagra’s generic, sildenafil, has also proven highly effective at treating ED. Viagra and sildenafil are commonly prescribed as the first line of defense against ED.

The costs of both Viagra and sildenafil have remained relatively stable within the past year. The average price of 100 milligrams of Viagra has dropped slightly to $77.70 among top retailers in the United States. The average price of sildenafil 100 milligrams has remained the same as last month’s at $5.56 across retailers.

Walgreens is one of the three largest retailers for prescription medication in the United States, along with CVS and Walmart. These retailers offer some of the most competitive prices for Viagra and sildenafil in the country. This article provides the most up-to-date pricing trends for Viagra and sildenafil at Walgreens and its competitors.

Walgreens vs. Competitors

The current price of Viagra at Walgreens is above the national average of $77.70; Viagra 100 milligrams is priced at $85.27. Sildenafil 100 milligrams is currently $18.65, which is more than three times the national average of $5.56.

CVS also currently prices 100 milligram Viagra at $84.34, higher than the national average. Sildenafil 100 milligrams is currently priced at $16.92, tying CVS with Target (which is owned by CVS).

Walmart currently boasts the lowest prices among the three largest retailers for both Viagra at $82.43 and the generic sildenafil at $2.90, which is the same as the last few months but still much lower than the national average of $5.56 for 100 mg sildenafil.

About Viagra and Sildenafil

Sildenafil first arrived on the market in 1998 as the little blue pill called Viagra. It became available as a generic drug in 2017. Sildenafil was originally developed to help with blood pressure, but its ability to treat ED became clear during human trials. Sildenafil is used for its original purpose, specifically to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension, under the brand name Revatio. 

How Viagra Works

Sildenafil is a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor, which blocks a specific enzyme from degrading certain nucleotides in the smooth muscle. This helps keep blood vessels open all over the body, including in the penis, making it easier to get an erection.

Side Effects of Viagra

Common side effects of sildenafil include headache, flushing, indigestion, and a runny nose. More rarely, there may be doubling or blurring of vision, or cyanopsia, seeing everything tinted blue. This happens because sildenafil may affect other phosphodiesterase enzymes, such as PDE6. Viagra can also cause a drop in blood pressure.

Who Shouldn’t Take Viagra

Due to its potential adverse effects, don’t take Viagra if:

  • You’re controlling your blood pressure with a medication from a class of drugs called nitrates
  • You’ve had a heart attack or stroke in the last six months, are experiencing severe heart disease, or experience angina.
  • You have a kidney or liver condition.
  • You have multiple myeloma or leukemia.

If you have Peyronie’s disease or are at risk of hearing loss, talk to your doctor before taking Viagra or sildenafil. Also, tell your provider about any current medications you’re taking before using this medication. If you have an erection that lasts more than four hours, see a doctor immediately.

Save Time, Order Online

Though the cost per dose tends to be higher when ordered online, consumers often get more value for their money. For example, eDrugstore.com provides consumers with the option to see a licensed U.S. physician online at no extra charge. Those who already have a prescription can simply fax or email it to eDrugstore.

What’s more, ordering prescription medication online saves people valuable time. There is no need to wait in line at the pharmacy or to take time off work to visit your doctor’s office for a prescription. You can review your options, speak with a U.S.-licensed physician or pharmacist, and place your orders from the comfort of your own home.
