Good News for Lipitor Users

For 8.7 million Americans, today is a good day.  That is precisely how many people take Lipitor, a cholesterol reducing drug.  Today the profitable drugs patent expires, allowing it to be marketed as a generic for the first time ever.  Last year alone, Lipitor earned its maker Pfizer over $5 billion dollars.
