In news that will delight men who've had difficulties in the bedroom, two generic versions of the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra are scheduled to hit the market Monday.

One of the new generics is made by Teva Pharmaceuticals, and the other by Greenstone, a subsidiary of , the company that manufactures Viagra.

The generic versions of the little blue pill (sildenafil) will likely be cheaper than brand-name Viagra for most men. And more generic versions are expected next year, which could drive prices even lower.

Viagra came on the market in 1998 as the first drug to treat impotence. Cialis (tadalafil) and Levitra (vardenafil) are two other erectile dysfunction medications. They work by relaxing muscle cells in the penis, which allows for greater blood flow, according to the Urology Care Foundation.

Teva Announces Availability of Generic Viagra

Teva announced the launch of Sildenafil Citrate Tablets, the generic version of Viagra (Pfizer), indicated for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

Sildenafil is a phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) inhibitor that enhances the effect of nitric oxide, which is responsible for degradation of cGMP in the corpus cavernosum. PDE5 inhibition causes increased levels of cGMP, resulting in smooth muscle relaxation and inflow of blood to the corpus cavernosum.

Viagra and the generic sildenafil, are two of the most popular drugs on the market today. Their popularity has led to thousands of bad jokes and hundreds of cheesy commercials, but how much do you actually know about the infamous erectile dysfunction pill?

There are multiple manufacturers.

Initially, generic sildenafil was only being manufactured by two companies – Pfizer and Teva. However, since the generic launch back in December 2017, more manufacturers (like Aurobindo, and Cambia) have come to the table, continuing to drive prices down.

It comes in multiple dosages.

Just like brand name Viagra, generic sildenafil is sold in tablets of 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg.

Prices keep going down.

Yes, you read that right. In December 2017,and priced generic sildenafil at 50% off the current brand price – around $30 per tablet. Now, prices per tablet average around $17, and they continue to drop. Stay tuned!
