Generic Alert 11162014





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, AmerisourceBergen
 & McKesson Shareholders: 


Supply Issues on Atorvastatin; 
Price Increase Possible Today



Uploaded via media manager.

Rumors of price increases on atorvastatin have been circulating for months.  We have new information that a price increase may occur today. 

Both AmerisourceBergen and McKesson have inventory available, but are allocating quantities on some SKUs.  We recommend purchasing what you can of atorvastatin today.

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.
