The FDA expands the availability of generic Doxycycline

Doxycycline is one of the tetracycline antibiotics that was developed during the 1960s by Pfizer Inc. It received its FDA approval in 1967. Being a little long in the tooth, it has passed out of patent protection so there are now generic versions on the market. This is great for patients as consumers because the competition between Pfizer and the new manufacturers has brought the price tumbling down. That means if you are unlucky and contract one of the infections caused by a susceptible bacterium, you have a cheap cure available. So if you’re down with pneumonia, a respiratory or urinary tract infection, one of the sexually transmitted diseases or something less common, reach for Doxycycline. No matter what the status of a drug as patented or not, it’s for the FDA to regulate all manufacturing for distribution within the U.S. The good news for consumers is that this August has seen the FDA license the Lannett Company Inc. to produce the whole range of Doxycycline tablets from 50mg through 150mg. This newly licensed company is a specialist generic manufacturer and its appointment really improves the supply of this important antibiotic across all U.S. states. If you can’t find it in your local pharmacy, you guarantee to buy Doxycycline online.
