Amneal launches felbamate oral suspension


BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — Amneal Pharmaceuticals has launched its generic version of a drug designed to treat seizures in adults and children with epilepsy.

The generic drug maker said it received approval from the Food and Drug Administration on Dec. 16 for felbamate oral suspension in the 600-mg/5-mL strength. The Amneal generic is available in two sizes, 8 fl. oz./240 mL and 16 fl. oz./473 mL. It is a generic version of Meda Pharmaceuticals' antiepileptic Felbatol.

“This approval further expands our liquids portfolio and complements our tablet form of felbamate, which launched in September,” Amneal president Chirag Patel said. “Additionally, by bringing another first-to-market generic to the public, we are reinforcing our commitment to provide pharmacy customers and the consumer with high-quality, affordable pharmaceuticals.”
