Amneal Pharmaceuticals has received clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for a generic version of Isuprel injection (isoproterenol hydrochloride) in 0.2 mg/mL and 1 mg/5 mL (0.2 mg/mL) single-dose vials.

"We are pleased to add isoproterenol to our portfolio of injectable products," Amneal’s executive vice president of commercial operations Andy Boyer said in a statement. "With four injectable product launches this year, we have quickly expanded our portfolio to 12 products. Our pipeline contains additional opportunities that will further enhance this important segment of our business."
