Actavis Launches Generic Version Of Opana® ER

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Actavis, Inc. (NYSE: ACT) today announced that it has launched Oxymorphone Hydrochloride Extended-release Tablets, 5 mg, 10 mg, 20 mg, 30 mg and 40 mg. 

Actavis' ANDA product is the generic equivalent to the previously marketed formulation of Endo Health Solutions' Opana ® ER, which was voluntarily withdrawn from sale in 2012.  Actavis previously received approval for, and is currently marketing, Oxymorphone Hydrochloride Extended-release Tablets 7.5 mg and 15 mg.  Actavis is currently a defendant in a lawsuit filed by Endo alleging that Actavis' Oxymorphone Hydrochloride Extended-release product infringes certain of Endo's patents.

Opana ® ER is an opioid agonist indicated for the relief of moderate to severe pain in patients requiring continuous around-the-clock opioid treatment for an extended period of time.
