Launch of Generic Viagra
Released: 12/12/2017
By: Heidi Dufrene, PharmD

The generic equivalent of Viagra (Sildenafil) has just been released, following FDA approval. Pfizer Inc. has held exclusive rights to the erectile dysfunction (ED) medication since 1998. The generic formulation is now available in 25mg, 50mg, and 100mg strengths.

Since Viagra entered the market almost twenty years ago, several other companies have released medications to treat ED such as Cialis, Levitra and Staxyn. Viagra is the first of these ED drugs to go generic. Currently, Pfizer and Teva are the only two generic manufacturers for Sildenafil. However, by summer more generic manufacturers are expected to enter the market which is expected to significantly impact price.

All generic drugs approved by the FDA have the same quality, strength, purity and stability as brand name drugs. The generic manufacturing, packaging and testing sites must pass the same quality standards as those of brand name drugs.
