About sildenafil Cost

Sildenafil (Viagra, Revatio) is a moderately priced drug used to treat erection problems in men. It is also used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension, a serious heart and lung condition. This drug is more popular than comparable drugs. It is available in generic and brand versions. Generic sildenafil is covered by most Medicare and insurance plans, but some pharmacy coupons or cash prices may be lower. The lowest GoodRx price for the most common version of sildenafil is around $14.36, 90% off the average retail price of $145.38. Compare PDE5 inhibitors.

Sildenafil vs Viagra: which to choose?

Both Viagra and sildenafil are widely used to treat erectile dysfunction. In fact, they contain the same active ingredient. Viagra is a brand name for the sildenafil produced and sold by the company Pfizer. Sildenafil is also sold as a generic drug, which is medically identical to Viagra.

How to take sildenafil

Your Lemonaid doctor will recommend the appropriate starting dose based on all the information you provide. Typically our doctors prescribe the 60mg as a starting dose, which means taking 3 of the 20mg pills at a time.

Never take more than one dose in 24 hours. Do not eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice on the same day you take sildenafil because it increases the chance of side effects.

Why is sildenafil cheaper than Viagra?

As a generic medicine, sildenafil is produced by a number of manufacturers, and competition among them helps to regulate its price and keep it affordable for consumers. Branded Viagra is only produced by Pfizer, whose name recognition and customer loyalty allow it to charge a higher price for its renowned ‘little blue pills’.

Blue or white pills?

Branded Viagra comes in small diamond-shaped blue pills – Pfizer has also patented this pill design and appearance. Sildenafil is sold as white or blue tablets, with different characteristics depending on the brand. Some have chalky finishes while others are smooth, and some are scored for easy division, while others are not. Both Viagra and the different brands of sildenafil can be purchased in 25mg, 50mg, and 100mg preparations, and there is no significant difference between them in terms of active ingredients.   

What happens if I miss a dose?

Since Viagra is used as needed, you are not likely to miss a dose.

If you miss a dose of Revatio, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
