Abstract

The use of generic drugs has reduced expenditure on ACEi and the mean weighted price of the subgroup. However, the increased use of generic drugs has not produced the expected savings for the Department of Health. This could be due to deviation of prescription scores toward drugs not affected by substitution by the pharmacy.
