Sildenafil 20 is already generic.

I wonder if we will see a hike in STDs after the 6 month exclusivity expires. I wonder if sales in Premarin and Estrace cream etc will go up, further jacking the STD rate. What about HIV prophylaxis? Geriatric debauchery could conceivably counter the 2016 Pharm D grad deluge. Now that's good news!

Viagra 100 mg is a better deal on a per milligram basis at CVS.
Not at Wags. You can buy an entire bottle of Sildenafil 20 for about $100.

I've never seen this sildenafil 20 you speak of. Is this in the states? Only ever seen Viagra 25,50 and 100.

I'm guessing there is an increase in outpatient off-label use of revatio...or am I wrong.

I have seen it a few times and have wondered if it was being used off label. It is still pretty expensive though.

to above: was there any doubt about any med that let us do the nasty until the moment we die? Hate to say bad thing about my own gender, but overall, we are a little too driven by basic instincts...woe how we can rule if we rule justly...

Hmmm.....I've always heard that FL leads the nation in STD rates, and that it is because of their high geriatric population.

Also, @StellargalS has been MIA for months around these waters. And that makes me sad, because she was my bud!

Nah, they are on to that. It used to work, but I don't know of a PBM that doesn't require documentation of lung disease now. We are talking about men's reproductive health. We all know that doesn't matter. You get the occasional one that still gives out the pity #3 or #6 a month, but none actually give out month supplies. UNLESS there is documented prostatic disease or something.

For some, #3 or #6 IS a month supply. I agree with you that its bogus the US government is requiring birth control to be free, but with private ins, now and in the past, I have never seen an ins that paid for BCP, that didn't pay for Viagra (and I have seen several plans that do the opposite, they will pay for Viagra, but nothing for BCP.)

I have never seen this ever. Its always BCP covered, ED not covered, if anything. I've only been doing retail since 2011, though.

I'm in the Midwest and you are on the East Coast, I'm guessing its a different mix of insurance (maybe the Midwest is more conservative, so don't want to pay for BCP?)

I'm curious what's the cash price of #6 generic sildenafil 20mg?

I figured the best deal was always 100mg Viagra and for the patient to cut it into 1/2 or 1/4s.
