Billions in profts a year from Oxycodone[edit]

In 2007, the profits were just a few billion.[1] As of July 2016, more than $31 billion from OxyContin, the nation's bestselling painkiller.[2][3][4]

Oxycodone generates major revenue for Purdue Pharma with annual revenues are about $3 billion, still mostly from OxyContin.

The OxyContin profits have added the family to the Forbs: The $14 Billion Newcomer to Forbes 2015 List of Richest U.S. Families[5]


I think it is reasonable to include information about profits from specific drugs in this article. Since your attempts to include this information have been repeatedly reverted, perhaps you can suggest some exact wording to be added to the article and see if you can get consensus for adding that. -- Ed (Edgar181) 20:20, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Lede rework?[edit]

The lede paragraph currently focuses entirely on the compnay's legal issues. Seems like some broader summary info about the company should be included, before the 2007 lawsuit material. Thoughts? jxm (talk) 13:56, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
