Brand X does its best to stay afloat

This month's Mystery Brand ( pictured) has had a rather rough time of late, as a cunning plan for surfing past a close competitor's patent expiration and into continued growth instead dragged it under the waves. Will docs condemn it to the Davy Jones' Locker of TRx share as a cheaper, tried-and-true alternative sheds its name brand pricing? Well, doctors being creatures of habit, probably not, but at best, they're looking at a leveling off of new prescriptions and forbidding growth prospects going forward.
