Viagra and Sildenafil Prices at CVS (Updated March 2021)

In the first months of 2021, the price per day for Viagra at CVS and other major pharmacies rose significantly. Several major retailers continued to hold their prices under those offered by CVS, with CVS raising their price to a point among the highest in the market for brand-name Viagra. While the price for Viagra at CVS was high, the retailer continues to offer one of the lowest prices available for generic sildenafil. Our investigation into the lowest-cost options for Viagra and sildenafil takes into account both the per-day price and the hidden costs of time and energy involved in buying at traditional pharmacies vs. online from eDrugstore.

CVS and Target

CVS, which also owns the pharmacies at Target stores, is the biggest pharmacy chain in the United States and filled more than $36 billion in prescriptions in 2020. Closely followed by Walgreens, the second-largest pharmacy chain, CVS has almost 10% of the retail prescription market. Because they’re the biggest player, it should not be surprising that CVS can offer the largest and deepest discounts on drugs such as Viagra and sildenafil.

Viagra vs. Sildenafil

Viagra, as the original erectile dysfunction medication, is the most well-known ED drug, beginning the current boom in ED medications with its approval in 1996. Sildenafil, its generic equivalent, is basically the same drug as approved by the FDA, without the branding and advertising associated with the better-known Viagra.

CVS Prices Are Now Among the Highest for Viagra

In October 2020, CVS competitors dropped their per-day cost for 100 milligram Viagra to an average of nearly $79.86, while the CVS price remained at $81.25 per day.  By January 2021, competitors’ prices had risen past $81.00 per 100 milligrams of Viagra, while CVS raised theirs to $85.20.  As the chart below demonstrates, CVS’s price has held steady for several months.

CVS Price Remains Low for Sildenafil

While CVS charged one of the highest prices in the market for daily brand-name Viagra, the price of $15.78 for 100 milligram sildenafil at CVS remains one of the lowest options available, well under the average price in March 2021 of $18.79.

Walmart, Publix, and Costco Offer Lower Prices

CVS’s prices on Viagra and sildenafil were above those at Publix and Costco, which in March 2021 also held steady, with 100 milligram Viagra at $78.60 and $83.28, respectively. CVS priced 100 of Viagra at $85.20 and 100 milligram sildenafil at $15.78. Other major retail pharmacy outlets in the field, such as Walmart, undercut the brand-name price of 100 milligram Viagra but were higher for the generic, pricing 100 milligram sildenafil at $25.79.

Ordering Online May Be the Best Deal

While the giant retailers may be able to offer lower prices per day on ED drugs such as Viagra and sildenafil, the per-day price of medications does not take other important factors into account. If you decide to order online, you will likely save both time and money when you consider other factors.

Privacy and Discretion: If you have a prescription already, you can fax it to eDrugstore or scan and email it directly to the site. This saves you the hassle of dealing face-to-face with a person.
