September 12, 2012 Some grocery chains are now offering free atorvastatin, the generic version of Lipitor, at their pharmacies. The cholesterol drug requires a prescription, but now you don't need insurance or cash to get the pills.
December 19, 2011 During the first full week that generic Lipitor was available, the brand-name version accounted for less than half of the prescriptions for the cholesterol drug. Generics claimed 59 percent of the market. Savings on the popular drug are just getting rolling.
