& McKesson Shareholders:
Fluoxetine Tabets Soar by 500%+
Mylan initiated a price increase of more than 500% for fluoxetine tablets yesterday. Alternative manufacturers such as Sandoz and Teva are still available at the lower cost. We recommend that you purchase extra inventory of this product from your primary and secondary sources as soon as possible.
Although fluoxetine capsules did not rise in price, we recommend that you secure extra inventory of the capsules to protect against an increase. Although there is no current supply interruption, there are only a few manufacturers of the capsules
On average, it takes more than 37 days for MACs to be adjusted when there is a generic increase, and often can take longer in many cases. In order to protect your margin, we recommend that you purchase enough inventory to carry you through this period of lagging reimbursement.
