Am a bit surprised that there has not yet been any comment on the purchase of Allergan by Pfizer.
Pfizer seals $160bn Allergan deal to create drugs giant
Perhaps we have all been missing some of the relevant points:
🚑 Allergan is the name adopted by Actavis after Actavis bought Allergan.
🚑 Pfizer own the Cytomel brand of liothyronine.
🚑 Allergan (in their Actavis guise) are one of the two major levothyroxine makes in the UK.
🚑 Pfizer own the Levoxyl brand of levothyroxine - number 2 in the USA.
What does this all add up to or those of us who need thyroid hormones? I don't know - but I would be surprised if, in one way or another, it doesn't end up with more dollars in Pfizer's pockets and fewer in ours.
