Top Takeaways

  • Eliminating barriers would shake up the middle of the market: The fourth and fifth place brands would each drop by two spots to sixth place and seventh place respectively.
  • Barriers are keeping one brand stuck in last place: Significantly more doctors experience barriers with this brand. If barriers didn’t exist, its market share would double.
  • Many doctors may not see the problem: 55 percent or more of them don’t experience any barriers with most of the surveyed brands.
  • Doctors are open to alternatives: 80% or more of surveyed doctors either prescribe, or would consider prescribing all of the surveyed brands.
