#pharmaceutical reps # Maybe Pharmaceutical Reps Actually Aren’t Bribing Doctors Is your doctor willing to sell you out for the price of a sandwich? That s the implication a lot of people seem to have taken from a new study published by JAMA Internal Medicine. It looked at the prescribing behavior of physicians for whom pharmaceutical reps bought meals, and found that those who got even a meal worth less than $20 — think Olive Garden or Potbelly, not Le Bernardin — were significantly more likely to prescribe brand-name medications that had a cheaper alternative.

#pharma info # Even for busy doctors, nothing is as good as a rep for getting pharma info If you’re a pharma sales rep, chances are, you’re walking through a fog of existential angst. If you’re not questioning your existence, worrying that you’ll be laid off, or wondering whether the doctors in your territory will stop seeing reps, you know other reps who are. All the surveys and studies–doctors like seeing reps, doctors prefer to read, doctors are unduly influenced, doctors aren’t, e-detailing will or won’t replace reps–probably don’t help, either. But you’ve probably been around long enough to have …

The Los Angeles Times report found that not only did Purdue Pharma, the makers of OxyContin, provide incomplete information to the FDA, they also falsely marketed the drug as having much longer lasting effects than were demonstrated during clinical trials. Many believe that OxyContin, a powerful, bestselling painkiller, is partially responsible for America’s prescription opioid epidemic. Purdue insisted that the drug relieved …

#pharmaceutical rep # In a bad-news first for pharma reps, more than half of doctors now restrict access It’s no secret that pharma salespeople are barred at the doors of many doctors’ offices.

Just three years ago, only 35% of U.S. physician practices put tight restrictions on pharma sales staff, according to the latest AccessMonitor report from pharma sales consultants at ZS Associates. As of this spring, it’s …
