How Much Can You Really Save on Costco Cialis, Viagra, Levitra and Stendra?

By , March 26th, 2018 | No Comments


Costco cialis viagra levitra stendra -- here are prices.You can save about 5% on the price of erectile dysfunction medications at Costco: Cialis, Viagra, Levitra and Stendra.

Even when you account for the fact that erectile dysfunction pills are sold in sizes that may have two doses or more in them, this isn’t the area where Costco’s pharmacies have the biggest discounts. Apparently, other drugs have discounts of up to 40%.

Note that not all insurers cover erectile dysfunction medications — so you’ll want to call your carrier to confirm that detail before redeeming a prescription that might give you sticker shock.

That said, the following prices for Costco Cialis, Viagra, Levitra, and Stendra come from the warehouse retailer’s main website (meaning they might be national averages, so you might encounter slight variations in price at local stores).

Costco Cialis and Viagra

Costco carries Pfizer’s Viagra in three strengths: 25, 50 and 100 milligram pills, but oddly enough, they all price the same at Costco: $726.23 for 10 pills, $1,437.85 for 20 pills and $2,138.22.

Apparently, many other pharmacy chains also set identical prices for these three strengths of Viagra, so the real way to save money here is to go for the 100 milligram version.

Now here’s what it costs to get 10 of them at three other drug stores: $696.99 at CVS, $720.99 at Walgreens, and $691.11 at Walmart.

Levitra and Stendra Prices

Costco only sells a 20 milligram version of Bayer’s Levitra, with 10 pills costing $558.47; 20 costing $1,105.91 and 30 costing $1,653.79.

As for Levitra prices at the competition, the 10-pill size costs $534.85 at the pharmacies in Albertsons, Safeway and Vons; $535.29 at Ralphs; $542.81 at Walmart; $548.22 at CVS and Target; $548.31 at RiteAid; and $559.08 at Walgreens.

Costco carries Eli Lily’s Cialis in four strengthes: 2.5, 5, 10 and 20 milligrams. Costco prices the two smaller sizes as follows: $136.52 for 10 pills; $263.84 for 20 pills and $390.93 for 30 pills. The two larger sizes cost $703.94 for 1o pills; $1,398.75 for 20 pills and $2,093.05 for 30 pills.

Costco’s price for the newest of the category, Mist Pharmaceuticals’ Stendra, is $625.10 for 10 tablets — and the 50, 100 and 200 milligram versions all go for the same price.

Here’s how the competition prices 10 tablets of Stendra: It’s $642.82 at Albertsons, Safeway and Vons; $643.53 at Ralphs; $653.95 at Walmart; $658.72 at CVS and Target; $659.45 at Rite Aid; $672.12 at Walgreens.

How Long They Last

What may make Cialis more appealing is the fact that this medication has the longest efficacy of the three, according to WebMD. The medication lasts up to 36 hours, compared to six hours for Stendra, five hours for Levitra and four hours for Viagra.

Stendra and Levitra can both take effect faster than the others, with effects beginning in as little as 15 minutes compared to half an hour for the other two.

But once you consider the fact that some insurers don’t cover erectile dysfunction medication, the best way to save money on this category might require waiting a couple of years: Viagra becomes available in generic form in the U.S. starting in 2020. At that time, even the original manufacturer plans to come out with a generic version of the pill that will cost half of what it currently does.

Readers, what kind of experiences have you had with Costco’s pharmacy? Which drugs have the best savings?
