Why is Viagra so expensive?

Viagra
Viagra is the most popular medicine designed to solve the problems of male impotence. Viagra got its name from the merger of words “Vigor” (means “strength”, “power”) and Nizagara (the most powerful waterfall in North America).

The price and popularity of Viagra is determined by the corporate policy of Pfizer.

First, the company spent a lot of money on the drug trial. Pfizer spent even more money to deal with the side effects that occurred in patients taking Viagra. Creating a new drug is a very long and painstaking process that can not only take a dozen years but also cost millions of dollars. This process includes not only development costs but also the cost of laboratory research and various tests. The result of this process is the creation of an effective drug, identification of all side effects and the elimination of them. Patented medicine is possible only after the completion of this long process. The maximum period for which patents are granted is 25 years.

Therefore, the corporation wants not only to recoup all costs over the years but also to earn money. Perhaps this is the main reason for the high cost of the original drug.

Secondly, the company started its activities with the involvement of professional sales agents. Sales agents became the main provocateurs of price increases, gain in sales of drugs and company profits. Sales agents know that the fastest and safest way to sell a lot of medicine is to convince doctors to advertise the company's medicine and prescribe it to the patient.

There were not so many medicines for the treatment of erectile dysfunction at that time. The demand for erectile dysfunction drugs was huge. Therefore, the company could set a very high price for Generic Viagra.

The medicine does not increase libido and does not even increase sexual desire. Viagra fills male genital organs with energy due to its unique medicine formula. After this, blood flow occurs to the penis which, in turn, leads to a healthy male erection.

Viagra is available in various forms with different dosages of the active substance. The drug administration should be strictly in accordance with the instructions and increasing the dosage is prohibited. The effect of the drug begins 30-50 minutes after taking the pill. The beneficial effect lasts for several hours.

The rate of the drug will increase if you take a pill on an empty stomach. You can take Viagra no more than once a day and only when there is a 100% chance of sexual intercourse.

It is strictly forbidden to combine this medicine with analogues and drugs containing nitrates. It is very dangerous and can be fatal. You should not forget that this medicine is not a magic pill. It is the drug that increases blood flow to the penis. Additional stimulation for the onset of an erection from the partner is necessary.

The drug is recommended to take men aged 18-65 years with a pronounced disorder of sexual function.
