Generic Alert 8222014

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: 


Imminent Increases Expected 
on Multiple Products



Atenolol Tablets
Furosemide Tablets
Metaprolol Tartrate Tablets
Propranolol Tablets

These products have acute supply issues and are quickly selling out.  Many of the preferred items are running out of inventory so remember to override substitution with your primary wholesaler and use your secondary sources to secure supply as quickly as possible. You are strongly urged to act quickly while some supply is still 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.
