I'm trying to find a list of brand name drugs with patent that haven't expired or there is not generic for. Any help will be appreciated.

That's a very long (and debatable) list. I don't think it can exist. What is your goal?

Out of the top 200 drugs, I want to know which are dispensed more commonly as brand name rather than generic.

I doubt there are very many brand drugs at all on any top 200 lists. Xarelto maybe? Eliquis? I would be hard pressed to come up with even 10 brand drugs that I would expect to be in the top 200.

Lantus, Symbicort, QVAR, NovoLOG, Zetia, Levemir, Invokana, Lyrica, Vyvanse, Januvia. There's 10. Took me 2 minutes, lol.

Of course, I don't know if these are all in the top 200, e.g. Vyvanse.

Oh if the game is "name 10 brand drugs" that is easy. But Januvia or Invokana in the top 200? Doubtful. I am not sure about QVAR either. Lantus and Levemir are good bets though. Maybe Zetia and Lyrica. Vyvanse I doubt as well.

Alright since I gave the "challenge" I guess I should play. Maybe someone will actually check our answers. I will avoid using any of the guesses already given since that would be unfair. Here goes (sorry for any misspellings):

Spiriva, Proair, Ventolin, Humalog, Novolog, Xarelto, Eliquis, Afluria, Novolin, and Nuedexta.

Alright that wasn't as hard as I expected, although I am doubtful of many of my guesses, lol

I think Suboxone is going generic much, much sooner than that. I actually thought I read it was going generic within the next 2 years.

Tamiflu seems obvious in hindsight. Benicar is pretty shocking to me though. So is dexilant, I wouldn't have thought anyone covers that. Premarin and Strattera are good ones although I wouldn't have thought Strattera that common. I considered Viagra and cialis but decided against just cause I wasn't sure when you take in institutional dispensing if it would still be in the top.

Yup. It's out. But last time I heard it wasn't AB rated.
Is generic Oxycontin back out? It was out years ago, but then taken off the market when Oxycontin was reformulated.

Neudexta? What in the world is a Neudexta? I guess I have a knowledge gap, oh wait, I just went and looked it up. Haha, see, its not that hard for a pharmacist to fill in a knowledge gap.

Chantix and Advair also pretty common
I considered Advair but didn't think of Chantix! Man I thought most of the good drugs had gone generic but clearly I wasn't thinking straight.

Since you ask, no. Biologics go through their own process to end up in the Purple Book. All current insulins went through the old pathway that leads to the Orange Book.

All "generic" "abuse-deterrent" OxyContin is relabeled brand (or authorized generic). This can be a problem if an insurance plan charges generic copay for "generic" OxyContin but you got it only one time as a one-off before it was pulled off the market.

Viagra is generic now
Actually, Viagra is still only available as brand. Revatio, which is low-dose sildenafil used for pulmonary hypertension, is now available as generic and that's what the independent pharmacies around here are advertising as 'generic Viagra' for cheap.
