Why Do Erectile Dysfunction Drugs Cost So Much?

NOTE: For the purpose of this section, let’s set aside the occasional nefarious price-gouging the pharmaceutical industry does on medications, and instead just focus on the reasonable (but still high) costs of ED drugs.

why do erectile dysfunction drugs cost so much

Let’s start this discussion with why erectile dysfunction drugs are so expensive, and really, why every name brand drug is so expensive.  Pharmaceutical companies, obviously, put millions and millions of dollars into the development of a drug. Oftentimes, these drugs never come to market, for numerous reasons. So, for every drug that comes to market – it has to pay for all of the other drugs that were just big sinkholes of money.

Now, compound this need to recover lost R&D costs on other failed products with the liability pharmaceutical companies endure with each and every drug they sell. Like the medical industry in general, costs have skyrocketed over the last couple of decades due to an increasingly litigious society. Those costs of lawsuits – both won and lost – have to be covered as well.

Lastly, a prescription’s protection is only for a finite length. Patent protection for a brand name drug, like Viagra, is only 20 years. After that time, other manufacturers can make the drug. So, they only have that short time span when they stand unchallenged – and smartly try to make as much profit as possible during that time.
