The generic companies limit supply to drive up prices. It's a shame with so many people out of work we choose not to fully supply the market. The proprietary drugs are generally available as they sell at about 95-98 percent gross profit margins as do most of your clinical diagnostics.
And that's the margin from the producer to the wholesaler not the end user. Figure you have another markup to the end user. So Walmart makes more than it costs to manufacture the pill.
