al benefits of these new anti-obesity medications need to be compared against their risks and cost," Dr. Miller said. "We are cautiously optimistic about the possibilities of these and other drugs like them, provided that they are prescribed appropriately and integrated with other lifestyle modifying programs that help patients make healthier choices that maintain their weight over time."

Methodology and Legacy

The Express Scripts Drug Trend Report was the first of its kind when initially published in 1997. This year, by transitioning the report to a quarterly publication, Express Scripts is providing more timely and actionable data to its clients.

The inaugural quarterly report quantifies changes in utilization, unit costs and overall prescription drug spending across the first three quarters of 2012, based on Express Scripts claims data for commercially-insured members.

The complete Drug Trend Quarterly is available at DrugTrendReport.com.
