Weighing their own preferences as well as their doctor’s opinion, males diagnosed with erectile dysfunction will usually be prescribed either Viagra (sildenafil), Cialis (tadalafil), or Levitra (vardenafil). The latter would generally be recommended to someone who had tried the former and wasn't fully content, or to someone who is looking to tackle different medical conditions. Levitra was FDA approved and sold by GlaxoSmithKline and Bayer in 2003 and has since shown its value in the market with over $250 million in sales within 2015. As with anything else, there are pros and cons, and in this case, the con that comes with the benefits of this erectile dysfunction medication would be the price tag. The brand name Levitra (vardenafil) can pull quite the vanishing act with the contents of one’s wallet, which may lead the cons to outweigh the pros. However, there is good news for those who are hesitant to pay the high price of Levitra (vardenafil): The generic alternative is coming... Or is it here already?
When is the generic Levitra available?
As the end of October 2018 rolled around, Bayer's patent for Levitra (vardenafil) finally expired, giving rise to the generic (therapeutically equivalent) alternative to Levitra (vardenafil). This was a major opportunity which a pharmaceutical company called Sanofi took advantage of, by obtaining the rights to make generic Levitra (vardenafil) in some of the largest fulfillment centers around the world (United States, Australia, Canada, and Europe). With this new low-cost generic alternative to Levitra entering the market alongside other generic erectile dysfunction drugs such as Cialis (tadalafil) and Viagra (sildenafil), one can expect prices to become quite competitive. Currently, many certified Canadian and international fulfillment centers appear to have the most competitive pricing for these products.
Alternative Erectile Dysfunction Medications
As mentioned earlier, there are other viable alternative choices to Levitra (vardenafil), such as Cialis (tadalafil) and Viagra (sildenafil), which are also perfectly suited for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. As for which erectile dysfunction medication would work best for you? That is a thorough discussion one should have with their doctor.
