Vivus announced a near doubling of Qsymia prescriptions in December compared to November. Of course, if Vivus know the total number of Qsymia prescriptions for the fourth quarter, the company also knows how much revenue was generated from those Qsymia prescriptiosn. My guess is Vivus chose to publicize prescriptions totals while keeping sales hidden because the latter number is small and disappointing.
Likewise, Spectrum could have easily given us fourth-quarter revenue, including all-important Fusilev sales, like the company has done in the past when it had something to brag about. Monthly Fusilev third-party sales estimates have been in decline for the fourth quarter, however, which likely explains Spectrum's silence.
