Levitra’s patent is set to expire in October 2018. But as of June 2018, Bayer doesn’t have any plans to make or market Levitra as an over-the-counter (OTC) erectile dysfunction drug. However, French pharmaceutical company, Sanofi, has acquired the right to make all applications for OTC approval of Levitra in the United States, Australia, Canada, and Europe when Levitra’s patent expires. But there are a number of regulations and concerns for over-counter ED medication.
Over-the-Counter ED Medication: LevitraJust because the patent on Levitra expires in October 2018, doesn’t mean that over-the-counter Levitra is a guarantee. OTC Levitra faces enormous obstacles in the United States and Europe. Pfizer faced similar difficulties back in 2008 when they tried to gain approval for OTC Viagra sales. Levitra is a prescription medication for a number of reasons including potentially dangerous drug interactions with other medications and even daily vitamins and natural supplements. It’s also important to take the proper dose of ED medication to avoid harmful side effects. More isn’t always better, and concerns about the potential for misuse, the complicated educational material needed to accompany the medication, and the fact that the underlying medical conditions leading to ED would go untreated, are all problems for over-the-counter Levitra.

- nerve damage
