Comparative Effectiveness of Generic Atorvastatin and Lipitor(R) in Patients Hospitalized with an Acute Coronary Syndrome Health Services and Outcomes Research
Conclusions Among older adults discharged alive after ACS hospitalization, we found no significant difference in cardiovascular outcomes or serious, infrequent side effects in patients prescribed generic atorvastatin compared with those prescribed Lipitor® at 1 year. Our findings support the use of generic atorvastatin in ACS, which could lead to substantial cost saving for patients and health care plans without diminishing population clinical effectiveness.
