What is the wholesale price of lipitor in the usa?



I cannot provide a specific wholesale price for Lipitor in the USA as it can vary based on several factors such as the quantity purchased, the supplier, and any discounts or negotiations. However, I can provide some context around the cost of Lipitor.

Lipitor (atorvastatin) is a statin medication used to treat high cholesterol and prevent cardiovascular disease. It was originally manufactured by Pfizer, which held the patent for the drug until 2011 [1]. After the patent expired, generic versions of atorvastatin became available, increasing competition and driving down prices.

According to DrugPatentWatch.com, the average wholesale price (AWP) for a 30-day supply of brand-name Lipitor 10mg tablets was approximately $235 in 2021 [2]. However, since generic alternatives are available, the cost for atorvastatin has significantly decreased. For instance, GoodRx.com reports that the cash price for a 30-day supply of 10mg generic atorvastatin tablets ranges from $4 to $25, depending on the pharmacy [3].

It is important to note that the prices mentioned above are estimates and may not reflect the actual cost paid by patients, as insurance coverage, copays, and other factors can significantly impact the final price.
