Outlook and conclusion on availability
In Spring of 2017, “Zegrid” (Omeprazole Sodium Bi-Carbonate) went generic and manufacturers were rushing to earn market share for the drug. Five Rivers RX was engaged to create a snapshot for Omeprazole Sodium Bi-Carbonate in August 2017 that would help the Virtual Generic Manufacturer decide whether or not to enter the market. Our analysis showed a highly volatile market spanning reimbursements and pricing which concluded in our suggestion against entering the market. Within 90 days, market pricing continued to plummet, finally settling on just 30% of the original market price which was 200% of the manufacturing cost.
