Price Comparison of Commonly Prescribed Pharmaceuticals in Alberta 2014

The ACFP is pleased to share with you the second annual Price Comparison of Commonly Prescribed Pharmaceuticals in Alberta document. Authored by Dr. Mike Kolber, Tony Nickonchuk, and Jayson Lee.

The document identifies generic products (generally cheaper) from brand name products, a 90 day cost for standard doses (unless otherwise noted), and Alberta Blue Cross and Indian Affairs coverage.  The document is grouped by medication class and then  ordered by cost. While this document is not exhaustive, it contains many medications potentially used by office based primary care providers.
