Pharmacist here. Just my thoughts on a major setback Opana has. As many of you "educated" Reps know, PBM's have put a huge hurt on pharmacy reimbursement (and on your drugs too w/ their formularies). Anyway, Opana Er is VERY expensive. In fact Opana IR is even more expensive (why? who the hell knows). Anyway, I am losing the main point here. Opana is a class 2 narcotic. We are only allowed to give out a month supply at a time. Opana is dosed at Bid (twice a day). So here is my question, why the fuck did Endo bottle it in quantities of 100?!?!? Think about it. You are a pharmacist who will make maybe 3- 12 dollars on the sixty Opana you are about to dispense. Why would you bother if you have to sit on 40 other pills that cost about/on average $6.50 a pill. Think about it, you dispense 60 pills to make an average of 8 bucks, and you are stuck with $260.00 dollars of crap on your shelf. Then, if you get another RX, you have to order another damn bottle to have an extra 20 pills to fill it. Then you are left with 80 pills. Will you get another call? Or will you no be stuck with $520 dollars worth of crap on your shelf. You cannot blame a pharmacist for turning away Opana scripts because of this. If they came in bottles of 60, it would be a totally diffirent story. Just my opinion, I'm sure I am going to have a bunch of reps saying a lot of stupid shot because of my post, but the smart reps should explain this HUGE DRAWBACK to their clueless bosses when they are asking them why their MD's aren't writing for Opana. When the pahrmacies don't carry the drug, and the patient gets fed up and tells the doc that he/she can't find it to fill anywhere, and the doc has to rewrite another rx for the just as effective and cheaper Oxycodone, how soon befpre the MD stops writing for Opana.
