The CVS/Caremark Primary/Preferred Drug List is a guide within select therapeutic categories for plan members and health care providers. Generics should be considered first. If there is no generic available, there may be more than one brand-name medicine to treat a condition. These preferred brand-name medicines are listed to help identify products that are clinically appropriate and cost-effective. Generics listed in the therapeutic categories are for representational purposes only. This is not an all-inclusive list. This list represents brand products in CAPS and generic products in lowercase italics.
We encourage you to take the Preferred Drug List with you to your physician to discuss your prescription choices.
