Generic Version of Fibromyalgia Drug 'Tentatively Approved'
NEWSBRIEF: A generic form of the fibromyalgia drug Cymbalta (duloxetine) has received tentative approval from the U.S. FDA. Impax Laboratories sought approval for delayed-release 20, 30 and 60 mg duloxetine capsules.
The agency gives a "tentative approval" when the drug meets all standards but is still under market protection, meaning no one other than the current manufacture can produce and sell it. Eli Lilly will lose that protection in 2013.
This means that Impax can make arrangements to begin selling duloxetine once that protection runs out. Generic versions of medications are usually much less expensive and more likely to be covered by insurance.
