Generic Nevirapine is here!

In HIV on May 31, 2012 at 7:15 pm

The FDA approved Nevirapine tablets of 200 mg strength and Nevirapine oral suspension of 50 mg/5 ml strength .  Companies plans to launch the generic equivalent of Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceutical’s Viramune tablets and oral suspension, in the same strengths, in the US market shortly. A total of ten companies received approvals, and the medication is now available in pharmacies from some of those companies.

Comments: The generic viramune (nevirapine) is a twice a day pill _ the Viramune XR (once a day 400 mg tablet) remains brand (non-generic). BA
