I gotta take an ED drug, and I like Cialis, because I don't work as I did after chemo, radiation, etc for colon cancer. I'm ok, and everything works fine, as good as ever, with that pill.

However, the local pharmacy wants $20/pill! Sex for the rich only, and if you want the everyday pills, that is over $120/month. Outrageous.

So, any tips on real Cialis sources that may be cheaper? Any experience with "generic" Cialis which is evidently made in India?

Much appreciated.

Don't get all weepy about the company profits. After all, if it is real Cialis, then that means it was sold wholesale and so Lilly will make its usual profit.

What is the problem with trying to get a better price? Should I pay full price on a Ford at Dealer A, or is it ok with you if I buy it at Dealer B for a discount?

Seriously, I would like to see an extension of drug patents. Selling a dose for $20 for 10 years, then suddenly on a certain date charging $2.50 just isn't the best idea. I would rather they charged a reasonable amount for 30 years. It would help everyone, including the company, because they would have a predictable revenue stream for a long time.

Hopefully, someone has had luck in locating a cheaper source. I ordered real Cialis from a Canadian company and they switched it to their generic "equivalent" through Barbados!

I can remember back into the early '60s when I was given a script for a very broad antibiotic. My friend was doing his pharmacy internship in the next town. Since I was on staff at a local hospital, I asked him if he would extend "professional courtesy" to me. He said he would.
When I picked up the script, I was stunned by the low price. He told me he gave them to me at cost, but the retail price was 11 times that.

So is it the pharmeceutical companies or the drug companies?

Yes, Mr. Carlgo, why don't you look at this website, www.xlpharmacy.com
Think you'll find what you're seeking at a lesser price.

The usual line of fake stuff made in Turkey or India. I wouldn't buy anything from them, especially drugs that you need to live. I was hoping for a response from someone who isn't in on this scam. Shame on those countries for allowing this. Even going so far as to counterfeit the boxes, logos, etc.

So far I have found that real Cialis doesn't seem to be available from overseas. Strange. I found one site that advertised a choice between real Cialis at aroung $10/ a pill (about half to 30% off US price) and fake for less than $5. I ordered the real only to get the fake, although they credited the account for the difference. When I called, they insisted, using twisty language and terms, that it was the same thing.

May all you scammers get fake medicine when you are ill. Bet you wouldn't use your own products if you were really sick and were given a prescription!

Odd, I was writing this response to a person who suggested that I could get free samples from a doctor, if I was healthy enough to participate. That post was deleted as I wrote!. I'll respond anyway because it may be of interest to somebody.

My urologist said that all the reps for ED drugs have been fired and he no longer gets free samples. Some had been seeing him for many years. He has no idea why. I thought maybe they were weirded out by health care reform, but all this happened way before the health care bill was passed, when it looked like it wouldn't pass actually, and there is no problem with any health reform and selling ED drugs anyway.

I am plenty healthy and strong, hike for miles a week, but I had rectal cancer three years ago and the radiation and/or chemo treatment gave me an ED problem. There is some talk about including ED drugs in medicare now. My private plan did include them.

The issue becomes whether or not a drug is essential versus one which is related to enhancement of life, like toenail fungus and long eyelashes. They do not, apparently, value sexual health as an essential component of a good life.

I get a lot of medications for my dogs on JanDrugs.com from Canada for a fraction of the cost of what I had to pay in the US when they were first prescribed. I think Viagra, Cialis and Levitra might also be going off label some time soon, or generic.

The generic formulas will not be identical but they might help. Also make sure that you have good cardiovascular health and try the amino acid L-arginine if you do not have a heart condition, which presumably you do not, since you are allowed to take Cialis. I see now from typing this that this is an old thread, but a year later, many more medications are now generic and a lot of the chain pharmacies are able to sell 3 month supplies in bulk so that is worth looking into as well. Good luck to all with this issue!

I tried a Canada Drugs because it advertised both real Cialis and generic, the former being more expensive, but far less than in the US. I ordered the real stuff, but got a cleverly counterfeited box from India, via some island where there are no laws, and the fake pills obviously were themselves fake.

I was only charged for the cheaper generic (faker) version. When I called, they actually claimed that the Cialis they sent was real, from Lilly. Totally not true. You can look at Lilly's website where they point out the differences. They did send me a refund when I requested it.

I seriously doubt the tea baggers are going to allow ED drugs to be part of medicare and the generics aren't going to be available for years. Oh, and so Lilly raised their prices... if you want to be ready anytime, you had better have some money.

Look at it this way, you can't get a decent hooker today for $20. Previous to 1997 when Viagra was approved by the FDA men who went through cancer treatment or had other health conditions would have paid far more than $20 a pill to have the ability to "be ready when the moment is right". Millions of Americans are dying from cancer and heart disease because they can't afford the hundreds of dollars each pill costs them. My advice to you is pay the money. If you don't think sex is worth $20, you're doing something wrong!!

There are Aston Martins and there are what might be called the entry level models... If you are driving a high-end model the cost of a tank of gas is incidental, but if your ride is a rusted and untrustworthy Pacer then filling it up is an expensive proposition for you.

Most people have maybe a Camry. Nice enough, reliable, decent mileage and affordable. You put just enough gas into it so it will take you where you want to go.

I just fell sorry for the Pacer driver. Not a good ride, but it takes just as much gas as the expensive models to get it to go anywhere.

I think that until a(n obviously needed) change comes, acceptance is mindset. I'll pay $20 for a good stiff bone. (I drive a 2012 Camry.... nice!!)

Nobody has to take a ED pill,sooner or later sex ends,part of getting old.

Sort of depends on your options. If you have access to an interested and enthusiastic partner there is more incentive to buy the pill and keep your sex life going, which is good for people physically and psychologically if they can, men and women.

It is tough for women. Their pill was estrogen replacement, but now that they are discouraged from doing that, they have their own little ED issues.

So in this analogy, is the Pacer an unfortunate-looking woman, bad sex, or a disappointing unit?

Oh, and regardless of the answer, I drive an Aston Martin.

Just, you know, for the record.

I am hoping for a Tesla. Great looking, described as "sexy" (same designer as Aston Martin actually). It is fast and comfortable, yet less complicated and more reliable in the long run. It comes with an information system that informs you of when it needs to be charged up, where the charger is and how to get there. This saves much confusion and the driver can't get lost so easily.

They now come with a semi-autonomous driving capability. Really who is the driver now? Now the Tesla and the driver both come their destination together, a happy ending for all. Isn't this and ideal trip for everyone? No more complaining about your driving or the constant "are we there yet?" annoyances.

Teslas are in short supply because of being in high demand all over the world. They can't make enough of them.
