make space on your pharmacy shelves for generic atorvastatin (Lipitor) tablets
You'll need to make space on your pharmacy shelves for generic atorvastatin (Lipitor) tablets...coming at the end of November.
Generic atorvastatin is going to be huge. Lipitor is one of the top-selling branded drugs in the country...because it lowers cholesterol more than simvastatin (Zocor, etc) and has fewer drug interactions.
Expect patients to still have "sticker shock"...even though Lipitor is generic. The big generic savings won't happen right away...prices will drop in 6 months when more generics come out.
