when you will see the price tumble even further on the generic. The short answer is, it's uncertain. Sometimes it can take several months following a generic approval before consumers see substantial price reductions. This happens because often, only one generic manufacturer has been allowed to produce the drug in the first six months, so there is no competition to drive the price down. But with Singulair, the price drop should happen sooner since the FDA granted 10 manufacturers the right to make a generic version. At least one of the 10 has already started shipping its generic to pharmacies, and the others will likely soon follow. Montelukast, the generic name of the medication in Singulair, helps reduce asthma and allergy symptoms by blocking substances in the body called leukotrienes that can trigger inflammation and constrict airways. The most common side effects of the drug include fever, headache, cough, diarrhea, runny nose and sinus infections. In rare cases, the medication can also cause serious side effects. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of these while taking montelukast: mood changes, such as aggression, depression, or hallucinations; a feeling of "pins and needles" or numbness in the arms or legs; a rash; flu-like symptoms; or severe pain and swelling of the sinuses. for life without limits™ BUT THERE IS A TSUNAMI COMING

for life without limits™ BUT THERE IS A TSUNAMI COMING
for life without limits™ THE GOAL AND PATH FORWARD
People with asthma will have access to
effective medication at a reasonable cost

Need policies that assures access to the most effective option
for each individual

Need research to create a better map between individuals and
therapies

Need patients to engage more effectively
And we need to be careful, so that we do not stifle the R&D
needed, to solve the access problem for those for whom there
are not yet effective medications (at any cost)

for life without limits™  Drug costs are a problem—and are likely to be more so in
the near future
Addressing that problem will require policy that assures
that patients have access to the medications that are right
for them

That kind of "precision medicine" will require research
Improving lives for people with asthma requires more than
policy and research
Patient engagement is essential
Patients need support to engage
Savings—from better outcomes—can help offset
potentially higher medication costs

Necrotic Enteritis: Managing without Antibiotics Dr. Linnea J. Newman Schering-Plough Animal Health (presented at the PIC's Poultry Health Conference on November 14, 2000) The medical community has expressed concern that antibiotic use in food animals may promote the development ofantibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria that could threaten the human population. While the true relationship betweenantibiotic use in animals and antibiotic-resistant bacteria in humans has yet to be determined, there has been a strong outcryfrom consumers to eliminate antibiotic use from food animal production.
