Generic Alert 11252014





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: 


Flecainide Tablets Increase by 500%


Uploaded via media manager.

Price increases are starting to occur on gabapentin tablets.  There are a limited number of suppliers and related supply issues, so we recommend that you acquire additional product as soon as possible. We are closely watching the price of capsules, although we do not expect issues because there are more capsule manufacturers and there are no known supply issues at this time.  

At this time, AmerisourceBergen and McKesson both have product available.

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.
