If you’re a Viagra user, and your prescription drugs are managed by CVS/Caremark, you’re out of luck.

The erectile dysfunction medicine is one of dozens the company has dropped from its list of covered medications, according to a report in CNNMoney.

To be clear: you can still purchase these drugs in CVS stores, but if you’re prescription drug insurance is covered by CVS subsidiary Caremark, your insurance will no longer cover these medications as of 2016. By that year, the number of drugs that CVS/Caremark no longer covers will be 124.

That said, the prescription drug provider will offer alternative medications. In the case of Viagra, those suffering from erectile dysfunction will be able to use Cialis. Check out the report in CNNMoney for the full list of drugs no longer covered.
