Fresenius Kabi launches generic Vazculep

By Sandra Levy - 08/30/2019
Fresenius Kabi is offering phenylephrine hydrochloride injection.

The product is the generic of Avadel Pharmaceuticals’ Vazculep.

Fresenius Kabi's product is available in 1-ml, single-dose vials, as well as in 5-ml, and 10-ml pharmacy bulk packages.

Phenylephrine hydrochloride is an alpha-1 adrenergic receptor agonist indicated for increasing blood pressure in adults with clinically important hypotension resulting primarily from vasodilation, in such settings as septic shock or anesthesia.

“Fresenius Kabi is pleased to expand our anesthesia and analgesia portfolio with these three presentations of phenylephrine hydrochloride injection,” John Ducker, president and CEO of Fresenius Kabi USA, said. “Generic alternatives like these play a vital role in patient care and support efforts to make medicines more affordable and accessible.”
