Why Viagra 100 mg May Be Your Most Cost-Effective Option

Armed with a pill splitter, you can readily transfrom a 100-milligram tablet of Viagra or its generic equivalent into two 50-milligram or even four 25-milligram doses. Buying the larger tablets and splitting them makes good sense. 

One of the easiest ways to reduce what you’re paying for erectile dysfunction drugs is to take advantage of the unique pricing structure in the prescription drug market.

Unlike most other markets where you pay a premium price for a more powerful alternative than the basic entry-level model, prescription drug costs usually are the same regardless of the strength of the pills you’re buying. In the case of Viagra, a 100-milligram tablet of the drug costs pretty much the same as a 50-milligram pill.

Two or Even Four for the Price of One

You don’t have to be a master mathematician to figure out that one 100-milligram tablet can readily be converted into two 50-milligram doses of the medication. For those somewhat slow on the uptake, that represents two for the price of one. All you’ll need is a pill splitter (see end of article).

The recommended starting dose for Viagra is 50 milligrams, which means that the largest number of men achieved the desired results when treated with a dose of that size in clinical trials. If 50 milligrams of the little blue pill gets the job done, you might want to give an even lower dose of Viagra a try. If you can get by with a dose of 25 milligrams, that 100-milligram tablet offers you four doses for the price of one.

Opt for Lowest Dose Possible

Generally speaking, for all forms of medication, it’s best to go with the lowest possible dose that produces the desired results. It also makes good sense financially as well.

Additional savings can be realized if you opt for sildenafil citrate, the generic equivalent of Viagra. It is priced significantly lower than Pfizer’s brand-name drug but contains the same amount of active ingredient, as dictated by regulations of the Food and Drug Administration. Generic drugs need not contain the same inactive ingredients as the brand-name drug, but since those ingredients are inactive as their name indicates, they really shouldn’t affect how the drug works. Typical inactive ingredients are filler materials and coloring agents.

Here’s How Prices Compare

If you’re shopping online at eDrugstore.com, the price for 10 sildenafil tablets of 100 milligrams each is currently $397.50. Those 10 pills will yield 20 50-milligram doses of the medication for $19.88 each.

By contrast, the price for 10 Viagra tablets of 100 milligrams each is $917.63, or $45.88 each for 20 doses of 50 milligrams each. As you can see, opting for the generic alternative cuts the price per dose by more than half.
