Generic Alert 10282014





Generic Edge keeps you abreast of great buying opportunities we identify in prescription and OTC products with our two wholesalers. Quickly shifting prices in the generics market mean these buying opportunities may appear and disappear suddenly, so place your order through your wholesaler as quickly as possible to take advantage.



 Attention, McKesson Shareholders: 


Price Nearly Doubles
on Amoxicillin 875 mg Tabs


Uploaded via media manager.

Aurobindo increased its price for amoxicillin 875mg tablets.  McKesson still has inventory available from Westward at $13.62.  You will need to override substitution to receive this item from McKesson.  Pricing on Aurobindo is expected to increase to $21-$22. 

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.
