One reason the brand-name still commanded a premium – little awareness of manufacturer drug coupons, and pharmacists weren't exactly spreading the word.

The November 2011 patent expiration on Lipitor, which is still marketed by Pfizer, was the one of the most closely watched developments in the pharmaceutical industry, because it symbolized the so-called patent cliff that has been ushering in a wave of lower-cost generic medicines over the past few years to replace big-selling drugs.

Looking for drug coupons can be a time consuming scavenger hunt for people who are not familiar with the internet.
