Winnipeg, Manitoba (PRWEB) November 27, 2012 -- On November 8th, 2012 the Supreme Court of Canada unanimously overturned a key drug Patent held by Pfizer Canada Inc. for the widely known erectile dysfunction (ED) medication, Viagra. The case brought forward by TEVA Canada challenged Pfizer's patent on the grounds that it did not disclose the full details of the active component of Viagra, sildenafil citrate, in its original patent filing.

While this is bad news for Pfizer, which will see the end of its 14-year monopoly of Viagra, it is great news for patients who rely on this prescription medication. According to David Zimmer, President of The Canadian Pharmacy, an online Canadian pharmacy based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, "for the first time in Canada patients using this prescription medication are now free to choose a generic alternative and save about 50% on the cost of this product."

Viagra (sildenafil citrate) is a prescription medication used to treat erectile dysfunction in men. Viagra was originally developed as a medication to treat high blood pressure. In 2000, Viagra sales accounted for 92 percent of the global market for prescribed erectile dysfunction medication. Since that time other erectile dysfunction products such as Cialis and Levitra have eroded Pfizer's share of the lucrative ED market.

The Canadian Pharmacy has been providing its customers significant cost savings on their medications for over 10 years. As a CIPA verified online Canadian pharmacy and international prescription service The Canadian Pharmacy provides substantial savings on the cost of prescription medications. With the addition of Canadian generic Viagra to its product offerings The Canadian Pharmacy continues its commitment to offer customers significant cost savings without ever compromising safety, quality or service.
