Aurobindo gets USFDA nod for generic cough relief tablets

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Pharma today said it has received final approval from the US health regulator to manufacture the generic version of Reckitt Benckiser's Mucinex DM cough relief tablets.

The company has received final approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) to manufacture Guaifenesin and Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide extended-release tablets, 600/30 mg and 1200/60mg, Pharma said in a filing.

The tablets help loosen mucus and phlegm, and thin out bronchial secretions, making cough more productive, it added.

The product will be launched in the first quarter of 2017-18, it said.

Citing IRI data, Pharma said the tablets had an estimated market size of USD 235 million for the 12-months ended December 2016.
