Israel-based Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. is set to launch a generic form of the impotence-alleviating pill Viagra in Europe, Globes reported Friday.

The patent held by Pfizer Inc., which is located in the United States, expires in the UK and other countries this weekend, allowing Teva to launch the generic version. Teva will call their version Sildenafil. The cost of the pill will be reduced considerably, from £10 to £1 in the UK for instance.

However, Teva will be unable to provide Sildenafil to the U.S. market after a court ruled that the patent there is valid until 2020.

    Is Teva’s generic Viagara (Sildenafil) available to US residents via Canadian pharmacy(s)?
    I have very recent prescriptions for Viagara, Cialis and Levitra but all are much too expensive in USA. Can you recommend a Canadian, Israeli (or other trusted) pharmacy that will accept US- originated prescriptions and allow ordering over the Internet?

    Or can I place an order directly with Teva Pharma?
