Viagra, Levitra, Cialis: Prices, Available Strengths and How to Choose the Right One
All ED drugs are available in different strengths, the medium one being the default starting dose for otherwise healthy patients. Higher strengths are intended for those patients who don’t respond to treatment with the standard dose. Lower strengths are intended for patients who experience unwanted side effects with higher doses or have medical conditions or take drugs known to interact with ED meds.
Viagra is available as 25mg, 50mg and 100mg tablets with the prices from $59.93 per brand-name pill in the US to $0.33 per pill of generic sildenafil online. Levitra comes in three strengths too – 5mg, 10mg and 20mg, the prices ranging between $56.08 and $0.49 correspondingly. Cialis for daily use is available as 2.5mg or 5mg pills costing $0.40 to $11.57 each. When taking tadalafil as needed, the patients choose between 5mg, 10mg and 20mg, the prices ranging between $0.23 and $72.14 per pill.
The prices of ED meds are different in different countries because of varied paying capacity of customers, levels of competition in the market, government control over pharmaceutical market or lack thereof and varied access to health insurance. ED patients can save money by buying generics that are up to 99% cheaper than brand-names. This is because their manufacturers face much lower expenses than the inventors of the original brand-name drugs and pass the savings to the consumer. Another way to save is by splitting pills. Note this should be done after obtaining the doctor’s permission, by means of a special tool and, preferably, with scored pills that are designed to allow accurate splitting.
