In January, prescription volumes continued their downward trend but showed some slight improvement over recent months, according to a recent research note from Citi analyst Ralph Giacobbe, citing IQVIA Health data. Adjusted total prescriptions, which includes both new scripts and refills, were down 4.5% year over year, compared with -6.1% year over year in December and -5.3% in November. Adjusted new prescriptions, which represents the first time a patient has been prescribed a particular drug, was down 6.7% in January, “which indicates slight improvement from trends in December and November that were both down 7.2%,” Giacobbe wrote.
