Viagra Comes in Single Packs

Pfizer offers single-serve packs of Viagra. This packaging option is convenient for men who want to try out Viagra, and for men who don’t want to carry around a whole bottle of pills for a night out, or a single unwrapped pill. 

 

Pfizer, manufacturer of Viagra, offers an alternative drug packaging option in the United States.

In addition to being able to acquire the popular erectile dysfunction drug in a bottle or in blister packs of multiple doses per pack, you can obtain Viagra in “single serve” blister packs. Therefore, if a man who takes Viagra anticipates possibly needing some while on the go, he can carry a single blister pack rather than carrying a whole bottle of pills or a single unwrapped pill, and he won’t have to use scissors to cut a single dose from a multi-blister pack. Though Viagra is still considered a blockbuster drug in the US for erectile dysfunction, it will have a generic competitor in the United States in a couple of years, and Pfizer is doing what it can to hold onto market share.

How Pfizer Is Pitching the Option

According to the Viagra website, Viagra Single Packs are available in the 50 mg and 100 mg doses and men who have prescription drug benefits will have the same benefit for the single packs as they do for other packaging options. Physicians can either write a prescription expressly for Viagra in single packs, or men can ask their pharmacists for this type of packaging when they obtain the drug.
Pfizer is pitching the new option as a convenient way for a man to carry Viagra with him just in case without worrying about losing or spilling a whole bottle of pills. A Viagra Single Pack will fit easily into a pocket or wallet without getting crushed or dirty.

Why They Do It

Why might Pfizer have added this new packaging option to its Viagra stable? They’re doing it for the same reason popular snack foods are available in 100 calorie packs and single bottles of soda are sold at the checkout counter: for convenience and to potentially tempt new consumers. Like many of the men who use Viagra, the drug is hitting middle age in a competitive market, and giving it a midlife makeover in the form of a new packaging option is a way to keep attention on the brand.

You Still Have to Watch Out for Fakes

Counterfeit drug peddlers have remarkably good access to technology, and sometimes fakes look enough like the genuine product that the only way to tell is by chemical analysis. Now that Viagra is becoming available in single dosage packs, you can expect the con artists who sell counterfeit Viagra to start making their knockoffs available in single blister packs as well. Any product sold online claiming to be Viagra, yet not requiring a prescription, or being sold at a ridiculously low price is almost certainly counterfeit.
