    As a woman, I canít imagine medication being particularly successful. As someone mentioned further up, women tend to be turned on by a combination of things, but emotional connection is a must (in my humble opinion). If I wasnít mentally/emotionally connected to my partner, Iím pretty sure no amount of medication would make me horny. Some quality hand and tongue work .... on the other hand

Advise on the 'chemist warehouse cost for only $25 for 12 tabs???
    Standard pharmacies pay less than $2 wholesale for 100mg vedafil tabs but will charge what they can and most people do not know better.They also charge you a prescription fee for any dispensed medication.
    I have recently been diagnosed with glaucoma and was prescribed eye drops .To avoid paying the pharmacy fee I dropped into the chemist warehouse near rebel sports albany-script was quickly filled and no charge at all.Also bought a good australian sunblock for 1/2 price-500ml pump dispenser is the way to go.
    Picked up a brochure and there it was-$25 for 12 tabs vedafil.
    Your pharmacy is ripping you off !

    Eye drops and sunblock perhaps, but do fish use Viagra?

    Consumer tested 20 sunscreens again recently 9 failed their claimed SPF's including the Cancer Society sunscreen( one batch since withdrawn but not the rest!!) and Banana Boat. Seems a dodgy testing lab in the uSA partly responsible.

    The prescription charge is simply absorbed by Chemist Warehouse or Countdown at a loss- they have to make it up elsewhere.

    Once you hit 20 items the $5 prescription charge no longer applies. Most people spend more than $100 on their car. If that is 'ripping you off', how much do you value healthcare?

    Unfortunately there's no Chemist Warehouse here in Chch and any prescriptions have to be done in person (as I read from their website). I can understand how some things are very expensive in NZ as they're marked up very high. But in the realm of prescriptions - my options are limited.

    There are several online pharmacies-you could for instance try phoning Glendene and post the script.They will charge a little for postage but I think some of the online pharmacies might not.
    You are quite right about the marking up being very high-vedafil (identical medication to viagra)is marked up over 500% by some pharmacies.Its not surprising that this lucrative practice will be defended by those making money.
    Vedafil(viagra) is very cheap to manufacture and can be bought very cheaply now it is off patent.Cialis still has a patent so remains expensive.

    I am not absolutely sure about prescription charges but my understanding is its a fee charged by the pharmacist for his service.After so many items per year it is paid from the Health budget.They do not actually make a financial loss when not charging it.I cannot see your point about the car or the health value of the fee.

    I've already had my prescription filled at the local Unichem but with x 2 repeats I can use later. I recall, there should be no problem going to another pharmacy elsewhere (by walk in) to have the repeats done as i've done this with my son's nasal Flixonase spray. They type it in the computer your address and can see if they can fill a repeat. But to do this online, I don't think they can without the original script.

    My GP said the same thing that Viagra patent is off and prices have come down a lot. In time it will only get cheaper.

    The problem is in the heat of the moment, nothing is more of a let down to wifey than not being able to go on. If you can imagine being all aroused but your man remains placid. Of course there are times the other way around happens. :o

    My point is, prescription drugs in NZ are some of the cheapest in the developed world. $100/yr is not a lot to invest in your own health.

    The $5 prescription fee is levied by the Govt to the pharmacy for the prescription.

    We are getting off the thread which is about the non-subsidised drug Viagra and the problems of obtaining it without being ripped off however I feel it is misleading to say that there is a $5 fee levied by the government on prescriptions.The $5 fee you are talking about is the patient contribution to the cost of a subsidised drug that may cost from a few dollars to a few thousand.The govt pays most of the costs of subsidised drugs
    Viagra was originally developed as a vasodilator for hypertension.In trials men reported stronger erections hence the patent and massive profits for big pharma.It is as cheap as chips to make.

    The patient pays $5 prescription charge which goes to the Government. A pharmacy can absorb the charge but they still have to pay the government levy.

    Which is why drugs are cheap in NZ

    It's a pretty poor antihypertensive. About the only indication apart from erectile dysfunction is pulmonary hypertension. The doctor can apply for a special authority if that is the case, which makes it a regular subsidised drug in NZ.

    Most drugs are 'cheap as chips' to make. They are not cheap as chips to develop or get through the approval process.

    Maybe wifey needs to review things and take a more active part and not leave it all to you, it takes two participants to give mutual satisfaction. Any help or am i up the wrong tree?

    A placid man is a good thing. Flaccid ... not so much
