almotriptanJanuary 5 2015

Teva has launched generic almotriptan 12.5mg film-coated tablets, following the expiry of the patent on Almogran from Almirall Ltd.

The prescription-only product is available in three pack sizes - 3s, 6s and 9s - and is indicated for the acute treatment of the headache phase of migraine attacks with or without aura.

Kim Innes, Teva’s Commercial Director said: “We are pleased to be able to add almotriptan tablets to our portfolio. Bringing our generic version of medicine to market on the first available day following expiry of the patent on the branded medicine enables the potential savings to the NHS to be realised immediately.”

Teva points out: “There are 190,000 migraine attacks every day in the UK, and there are more people who suffer with migraine than people with diabetes, asthma and epilepsy combined, according to figures from the Migraine Trust.”
