Manage Inventory so Brands are Used Up Before Generics Arrive

More top-selling drugs will go generic in 2016.

OxyContin (oxycodone ER)...available now. But let patients know that generics are only out for the 10, 20, 40, and 80 mg tabs. The 15, 30, and 60 mg tabs only come in brand...for now.

Glumetza (metformin ER)...February. Don't automatically substitute between the various metformin ER generics. Fortamet, Glucophage XR, and Glumetza all have different release mechanisms.
