Pfizer’s top products

Pfizer has several products that are quite popular. In 2018, drugs in the Prevnar family, followed by Lyrica, were their top products based on revenue. However, Pfizer has several other drugs that are also well known. For example, Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) is used in the treatment of high cholesterol. Over the years, however, Lipitor revenues have been on the decline, yet it remains part of Pfizer’s top products. One of Pfizer’s most well-known products, Viagra (sildenafil citrate), used in the treatment of erectile disfunction, has also been on the decline with 2018 having the lowest revenues on record. The low revenues are mainly attributable to Viagra’s loss of patent exclusivity in the U.S. in December 2017.
