We get a a lot of questions about Pfizer’s blockbuster cholesterol drug Lipitor. Even though generic Lipitor hit the market last year, Lipitor prices only came down a smidge and generic Lipitor prices aren’t much less. We constantly get questions from cholesterol patients asking “Why is Lipitor still so expensive?”, “Isn’t generic Lipitor supposed to be cheaper than brand name Lipitor?,” and “Are the prices of Lipitor and generic Lipitor ever going to come down?” Well, fortunately for cholesterol patients, the answer is yes, the prices of Lipitor and generic Lipitor are going to come down, and the price drop should be right around the corner!
Even though the patent on Lipitor expired last year, only a two generic versions of Lipitor were released at the time. With just the limited release of generic Lipitor, Lipitor prices could afford to stay pretty high and generic Lipitor prices didn’t have to be so cheap either.
That changes in a few weeks, when more versions of generic Lipitor start hitting the market. As of May 31st, more generic versions of Lipitor are due to hit the market and prices are due to start dropping fast. The guess is that the price of generic Lipitor could drop to as little as $20 to $30 for a three month supply. Now that is good news.
Still, as always, don’t forget to shop around for the best prices for your generic Lipitor. Prescription drug prices tend to vary wildly, so check around!
