What companies do pharmacists now select when filling Rx's for 16 generic drugs? Part 1
Pharmacy Times 1978 Sep; 44:54-58


A survey of randomly selected retail pharmacies was conducted to determine company preferences for generic prescriptions. Responses from 837 pharmacies are tabulated to indicate company used, percentage utilized, ranking, and comparison with a previous survey in 1976 for the following drugs: ampicillin, APC (aspirin, combination, caffeine, phenacetin) with codeine, chlordiazepoxide, conjugated estrogens, digoxin, erythromycin, and hydrochlorothiazide. Data are categorized according to responses from all pharmacies, independent pharmacies filling over and under 75 prescriptions per day, and chains filling over and under 75 prescriptions per day.
