Anyone stop taking Plavix due to cost? Well, the patent just expired and several companies have received FDA clearance to sell a cheaper generic. Here is the scoop.

I am glad to hear it. It is the most expensive medication I take even though I have been already getting a generic from Canada that actually gets shipped from Germany. It will be nice to get it cheaper at the local drug store rather than put up with a lead time of 3 weeks.

cpa,

That is the beauty fo generics. The company made their money - and enough to pay for the many failed drugs they also invest in (it all breaks even in the end). Now, it is time for the aptients to reap their reward - better health at a lower cost!
