Supplementary notes

* Therapy areas are based on proprietary IQVIA definitions. Includes prescription-bound products including insulins dispensed through chain and independent pharmacies, food store pharmacies, mail service pharmacies, and long-term care facilities. Excludes OTC products. IQVIA routinely updates its national audits, which may result in changes to previously reported market size and growth rates. Prescriptions are not adjusted for length of therapy; 90-day and 30-day prescriptions are both counted as one prescription.
