Top Takeaways

Barriers affect 15% of all prescriptions: But is it cost, formulary issues or some other barrier combinations that cause the most amount of pain?

Two brands see significant share increases: 2 brands gain share thanks to barriers, but the top-gaining brand sees a much bigger bump than the brand in 2nd place.

One brands sees a significant loss: Despite being prescribed by over 90% of physicians, one brand loses over 4% of their market share because of barriers. Why? And can this be prevented?
