Price breaks

Generic Zocor has been given the nod by the FDA and will show up in US pharmacies almost immediately. Merck, which manufactures the real deal, dropped the price of brand name Zocor, and that will remain the preferred drug on the United Healthcare formulary.

The patent expires on the antidepressant Zoloft next week. Generic versions should be available in the months to come.
