Top Selling Drugs- Which Will Make It To An MDL Litigation

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Drug Lawsuits, Drug Warnings, Drugs and Devices lawsuit attorneys

With new drugs coming out each month and many becoming best sellers we wonder which of these will start to implicate the manufacturer for lack of warnings for a medical condition.  We already know that Xarelto has lawsuits for excessive bleeding and Yaz just reached a settlement for causing blood clots and related medical conditions. According to Medscape Medical news the cholesterol-lowering drug rosuvastatin (Crestor, AstraZeneca) has been the  most prescribed branded drug in the United States, and the arthritis drug adalimumab (Humira, Abbott Laboratories) was the best-selling branded drug, according to the latest data from research firm IMS Health. Rosuvastatin had about 21 million prescriptions, followed by asthma medication fluticasone propionate/salmeterol (Advair Diskus, GlaxoSmithKline), at about 13.6 million prescriptions; the proton pump inhibitor esomeprazole (Nexium, AstraZeneca), at about 13.2 million prescriptions; the insulin glargine injection Lantus Solostar (sanofi-aventis), at about 11.2 million; and the attention-deficit drug lisdexamfetamine dimesylate (Vyvanse, Shire), at about 10.6 million. Rounding out the top 10 most prescribed drugs for the period (in order) were the antiepileptic drug pregabalin (Lyrica, Pfizer), the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease medication tiotropium bromide (Spiriva Handihaler, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals), the diabetes drug sitagliptin (Januvia, Merck), the asthma/chronic obstructive pulmonary disease drug budesonide/formoterol (Symbicort, AstraZeneca), and the antipsychotic medication aripiprazole (Abilify, Otsuka Pharmaceutical). Top Sellers The top seller, arthritis drug adalimumab (Humira, Abbott Laboratories), had sales of about $8.6 billion, followed by the antipsychotic aripiprazole (Abilify, Otsuka Pharmaceutical), at $7.2 billion; the arthritis drug etanercept (Enbrel, Amgen), at roughly $6.1 billion; the cholesterol drug rosuvastatin (Crestor, AstraZeneca), at just under $6.1 billion; and the insulin glargine injection Lantus Solostar (sanofi-aventis), at around $5 billion. The remaining top 10 drugs in sales were the hepatitis C drug sofosbuvir (Sovaldi, Gilead Sciences), at $4.9 billion; the asthma drug fluticasone propionate/salmeterol (Advair Diskus, GlaxoSmithKline), at $4.8 billion; the proton pump inhibitor esomeprazole (Nexium, AstraZeneca), at $4.7 billion; the diabetes drug sitagliptin (Januvia, Merck), at $3.8 billion; and the antiepileptic pregabalin (Lyrica, Pfizer), at $3.4 billion.
