What is the competition paying for Pharmaceuticals

Posted 06-17-2013 at 06:39 PM by 00015669
I am in the process of identifying a service or creating a service that provides price comparisons for Pharmaceutical companies. For example if I am paying $1.00 for Brand X Aspirin, is there a service that can tell me what my competition is paying for like or similar product?
