Limited Supply of Fluocinonide Cream
Still Available at Lower Cost
Taro initiated a price increase on fluocinonide creams, ointments, and gels in June, and other manufacturers have followed. Actavis has not yet raised its price, but is expected to soon. We recommend securing additional inventory before the increase. These products are not on the wholesaler generics program (PRxO® Generics), so remember to override substitution to get the Actavis product.

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.
