Actavis begins shipping generic Clobex shampoo, topical lotion


MORRISTOWN, N.J. — Actavis has begun shipping clobetasol propionate shampoo and clobetasol propionate lotion, which were granted 180-day marketing exclusivity by the Food and Drug Administration.

The shampoo and topical lotion are generic equivalents of Galderma's Clobex shampoo and Clobex topical lotion, which have garnered sales of $89.9 million for the 12 months ended in September 2011.

"The launch of clobetasol propionate shampoo and clobetasol propionate lotion displays our continuing commitment to introduce new, high quality generic products to the marketplace, as well as highlights our expertise in developing and manufacturing a wide range of dosage forms," Actavis CEO Doug Boothe said. "Actavis' drive to be a leader in generic pharmaceuticals is supported by one of the largest product development pipelines in the industry."
