Sourcing prescription drugs gets a little simpler all of the time.

November 10th, 2010

For many e-procurement events gathering specifications can be a very difficult process. One would think it would be the same for prescription drugs because of all the strange names like Synthroid and directions for consumption like q.i.d.

This was the case years ago, but with the advent of many of the internet based prescription drug sites such as RXlist, Drugs.com and many retailers sites, it is easy to find lists, formulations, directions, dictionaries and generic equivalents. What more could a Pharma buyer ask for. Now all you need to do is use your e-procurement solutions provider to drive your costs down.

According to RXlist, the top twenty prescription drugs in the U.S. are as follows.

1. Lipitor
2. Hydrocodone / Acetaminophen  
3. Hydrocodone / Acetaminophen  
4. Levothyroxine sodium  
5. Amoxicillin  
6. Lisinopril  
7. Nexium  
8. Synthroid  
9. Lexapro
10. Singulair
11. Plavix
12. Simvastatin
13. Hydrochlorothiazide
14. Amlodipine besylate
15. Azithromycin
16. Warfarin sodium
17. Furosemide
18. Azithromycin
19. Levothyroxine sodium
20. Advair Diskus

Let’s hope this  information helps you to drive down your costs.
