    by West Conner
    Another antihistamine is now available in generic, potentially saving you money at the pharmacy counter. Zyrtec had $1.2 billion in sales in 2006, the latest figure available. Whenever a patent expires and the generic becomes available, the manufacturer loses virtually 100% of sales.
