Since it is still 2011, such data has not bee compiled, yet. This information is not compiled under after the year is over and then released about mid-way through the year, once all reports have been evaluated.

Therefore the most current information out is from 2009, it was released last year. The information for 2010 will be released later this year.

Therefore, ca you please post back with what years information you are seeking?

Vernon,
Thank you so much for the response.
I am interested in the latest information available.

In what month will 2010 date be released?

Is 2009 data available?

Thanks again,
Giselle

The information for 2010 should be released by sometime next month, though the date varies, depending on when they are done compiling the information, so it could be a little sooner or a little later.

They also don't break them down by specialty or prescribing purposes, they just give a general list that includes all of them.

Here are the top 100 for 2009 from the general list, the first number shows the sales ranking for the year, if it is followed by a number in parentheses that is to show their movement on the chart from the prior year, then the drug name, manufacturer, total cash sales and the last number is their percentage of change from 2008:

1 Lipitor Pfizer Inc 5,363,193 -8.8%
