DZ has noticed, purely professionally, that Sildenafil is now available over the counter. When you look at the pharmacology of the drug there's no reason why it shouldn't be. But you do wonder why the drug companies are so supportive of this move. Could it just be that the basic cost of the generic version of this drug is about 40p a tablet. So an NHS prescription costing £8.80 could provide 22 tablets and the taxpayer would break even. Similarly a private prescription could provide 50 tablets for £20.
Buying Viagra over the counter will get you just 4 tablets for £20, or £5 each.
You don't suppose it's all just a con to protect someone's profit margins do you?
