Lipitor® is among the most commonly prescribed drugs in the United States. In 2010, it was the second most popular medication, with sales of $5.3 billion, according to Drugs.com. The release of lower cost generic Lipitor®, along with the release of generic Plavix® in May, allows HealthWarehouse to continue adding to its selection of low-priced generic medications. By offering Atorvastatin at the lowest price in the US, HealthWarehouse continues to be at the forefront of delivering excellent value, service and care.

“Having more versions of generic Lipitor® available allows us to continue our commitment to offer consumers with affordable, high-quality medications,” said Lalit Dhadphale, co-founder and CEO of HealthWarehouse.com. “Given the significant sales that both Plavix® and Lipitor® previously represented, the release of their generic versions should help ease consumers’ wallets and provide a great benefit to those on the medication. We are pleased with the current demand we’ve seen for the generic version of Plavix® and expect to see increased demand for Atorvastatin as well.”

With over 300 generic prescriptions for $3.50 (including shipping), which is often less than the average insurance co-pay, HealthWarehouse delivers among the lowest prices for prescription medications. Efficiencies in distribution, combined with cash prices which bypass the need for insurance companies, enables HealthWarehouse to dramatically reduce prescription drug costs by 50%-90%.

HealthWarehouse.com is also pleased to offer the lowest prices available for brand name drugs as well. A Consumer Reports study last year found HealthWarehouse.com to have among the lowest total prices for four brand-name drugs: Lipitor®, Nexium®, Plavix®, and Singulair®.

The study was conducted by 43,739 Consumer Reports readers rating pharmacies for price, accuracy, knowledge, and speed.

“Our national study of prices for four common brand-name drugs found average total differences of $168 or 29 percent, between the cheapest source (HealthWarehouse.com) and costliest (Publix),” the study noted.
