Lipitor Is Now Generic!

I knew that Lipitor's patent expired late last year, but it was still a pleasant surprise to get my prescription refilled with generic, and at a lower co-payment ($30 for a three month supply).  I am sure that my insurance company is also pleased by this, because I am sure that it was not just the co-payment that dropped.

It may not seem like a very big deal--but think of the number of Americans who are taking statins like Lipitor on a regular basis, and that really is a very big deal.

Of course, I keep hoping that the Metformin will let me drop enough weight that perhaps in another six months or a year I won't need the generic Lipitor.
