Anticipate Formulary Changes as New Generics Become Available
More top-selling drugs will go generic in 2016.
OxyContin (oxycodone ER)...available now. But generics are only out for the 10, 20, 40, and 80 mg tabs. The 15, 30, and 60 mg tabs still only come in brand.
Gleevec (imatinib)...February. This could be a game changer for certain leukemias...since the brand costs about $10,000 per month.
