Latest Drug Sales Data: Loss of Patent Protection Has Significant Effect, According to Drugs.com
Date:8/21/2012

NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Drugs.com, the leading online clinical drug resource, today released second quarter 2012 U.S. prescription sales data for the top 100 drugs.

Proton-pump inhibitors, antipsychotics, asthma therapeutics and statins remain the top-selling categories. Plavix and Seroquel dipped in the second quarter due to loss of patent protection. Other top brands such as Singulair, Actos and Diovan are also due to be impacted by year's end.
