Arms Generic Androgel on the Way!!!! Testim Rules

BRIEF-Solvay says subsidiary will not to file patent infringement suit against Perrigo Israel Pharmaceuticals
BRUSSELS, July 17 (Reuters) - Solvay SA (Brussels: SOLB.BR - news) :

* Says its unimed pharmaceuticals LLC subsidiary will not to file a patent

infringement suit against Perrigo Israel Pharmaceuticals, ltd

* Says Unimed received a letter from Perrigo (NASDAQ: PRGO - news) advising Unimed that Perrigo had filed an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking approval to market and sell a generic version of AndroGel (testosterone gel) 1% CIII in the U.S. prior to the expiration of Unimed's patent

* Says the receipt of these letters triggered a 45-day period during which time the company could have initiated patent infringement litigation and triggered a 30-month stay of FDA approval of Perrigo's ANDA

* Says in its letter to the company, Perrigo asserted that it did not infringe the AndroGel patent because its proposed testosterone gel product contains a different formulation than the formulation protected by the AndroGel patent

* Says the company does not waive its right to initiate patent infringement litigation at a later stage based on new or additional facts and circumstances

Testim Rules? Generic Androgel will kill Testim as well as branded Agel. Injections too. Testim is 3rd tier in most places. Generic Agel will cost $10. Most Medicare D will block Testim completely. Testim will lose 80% of their 20% share.

You people are clueless. PAR pharmaceuticals was given exclusive rights to bring a 1% gel to the market and based on litigation cannot bring an Androgel generic to the market until 2016. Go look up the current news dumbass.

Last post is clueless. The abbreviated NDA for generic AndroGel filed is a different formulation than AndroGel litigated by Par and Watson in 2003. Those formulations where identical to SOlvay's AndroGel in its components. In effect, Par, Waston and Solvay's settlement has no legal hold on this NDA. If reps from Aux and Solvay think that this will not severly impact the branded business than they need to get real. No rep wins here everyone, but the patient looses.

No sir, you are still clueless. It doesn't matter which company does what with a generic form of the test. gel, it still cannot be brought to market to compete against Androgel or Testim until 2016. It doesn't matter what alcohol based gel formulation you put the 1% testosterone in, generic competition is still prohibited until 2016. It's no different than all the other "formulations" of other drug companies try to bring to market, such as the multiple different formulations of simvastin. All the Lipitor patent litigation fights Pfizer has squashed has been amazing. Many generic companies thought they could do just as you said, "change the formulation a little" and file it as a "new" generic drug. Do some more research my friend, you're still wrong and clueless.

Exactly right. I can't believe the OP cheered generic Androgel. Thats the kind of myopia that makes stupid reps. Once Androgel is generic, it will have 75% of the 1% gel market. Watch your bonus go down the tubes my friend.

No, YOU'RE wrong my friend. Your Pfizer example is way off, because at least Pfizer fought the generic. Solvay has publicly stated they are nopt going to fight the ANDA. You can expect to see generic Androgel in 6-8 months. Where the hell did you get the 2016 crap???? Androgel is basically Purell hand sanitizer with some testosterone. Not real complicated to duplicate.

2016. Sheesh. What a maroon!

THis poster is correct. Some italian company filed a generic version of androgel and Solvay can't fight it. Generic testosterone gel will be available between 6 to 8 months. At that time both Androgel and Testim will go bye bye..SOlvay will stop promoting Androgel and Auxilium can promote Testim all it wants. The truth is TEstim will not have a chance at tier 3 versus a tier 1 generic version. All managed care companies will push for the generic version. This is common sense.

Your tiuming is off. The earliest a geneirc would hit would be 18 to 24 months from the filing. The filing appears to have occured in April. That means almost all next year will be genric free. You are also assuming that the generic application will be approved by FDA. That may be a risky assumption.

NOt that long for a generic! And you are still missing the point. Both Testim and Androgel are screwed when it comes out.

Absolutely right. Q1 of 2010 is the expected availability date pending FDA approval. An NDA was submitted and barring a 30 month legal block which Solvay could have put in play by challenging the application, the approval could be as soon as six months from application date.
Solvay decided not to challenge in July of 2009.
With the knowledge of the current legal proceedings against Solvay and Androgel by the FTC for their 2005 "pay-to-delay" agreement, I am sure the Obama administration will see that this application gets reviewed on time.

Managed Care will be salivating over generic Agel. The growth of TRT has been on the payers "radar" for years now. Likely many plans will a block on even 3rd tier Agel and Testim. Note- generic only benefit plans are growing the fastest in the market. I would be surprised if Testim kept their MS at 5% once the generic is out. 90% plus uptake of generics is the norm today.

Cool Re: Generic Androgel on the Way!!!! Testim Rules

TRT products make up about 1% of any health plans total annual spend. Not exactly a top priority for MC Pharmacy Directors. But Managed Care will jump on any generic in any category. And a generic option is inevitable so enjoy the ride until then cause no one can stop it. But, a generic Androgel will NOT be available first quarter of 2010 no matter what happens. Could be anytime between 2011-2015...there's still a lot of legal action to come. I doubt Abbott will sit back and let any product ride off quietly into the sunset. Matter of fact, it is likely that part of the reason Solvay didn't file a lawsuit was due to the pending offers. Probably wanted to keep things nice and tidy.

There will be no generic to Androgel anytime soon. Perrigo formulation is not identical. Due to granted citizens petition, they will have to perform all necessary studies to file an NDA.

This is bullshit!!! The number of men needing "T" is growing everyday!! How do you pay up to $300.00 per month for Androgel on a fixed income like disability? Just another act of GREED by the Manufacturer!! What a messed up world we live in when you can not afford a drug that you need to live a healthy life!!

I think somebody needs to step into his time capsule and travel back to the Middle Ages! Then you can experience a "messed up world" where people died of things like tooth infections and mild fevers. Perhaps you'd like to try the state-of-the art medical treatment of past eras? Things like leeches to bleed out the bad humors or drilling holes in people's heads to let out the evil spirits that cause headaches?

Boo! Hoo! You're on a fixed income from disability (meaning our tax dollars are taking care of you) and the GREEDY makers of Androgel are trying to recoup their R&D investment dollars and make a profit? Why don't you thank GOD that you live in a time period and a country that even makes these kinds of medications available? You are obviously so immersed in "entitlements" that you think it is your birthright to have medical miracles available to you for FREE.

If you have ANY type of insurance (which you must have if you are on disability) then Androgel is NOT $300. If you are on the highest dose and paying cash, then yes - otherwise no. And if you are so destitute as you claim, then get a SHOT! They're cheap and achieve similar results. And by the way, it's testosterone - you're not dying.

But no, typical stereotype that you are, you demand the Cadillac of the drug class and you want it FREE.

You do realize that we only have the medical advancements in this country that you take for granted by PEOPLE GOING TO WORK and making it happen, right? This country become great and advanced the standard of living by leaps and bounds because people worked hard and got to reap the rewards of their efforts. The Obama mentality is embedded so deep now that people like you throw tantrums and call the world "messed up" because their designer drugs should be GIVEN to them, just like the money they live on.

Why don't you write to your Congress person and tell them to stop subsidizing prescription drugs for the rest of the world and then you will see the price of your Androgel and your other drugs come down. Until then, stop whining and start assuming some responsibility for your life.

To the above anonymous reply. No one wants to go back to the dark ages but the previous poster has a point when he believes paying $300 a month to correct the low testosterone problem is a result of greedy corporations in a screwed up corporate world. Why would a simple formulation such as testosterone incur such high R&D where they need to justify a $300 a month prescription. I am a extremely healthy male (I eat right and I regularly exercise) who takes no medication but I suffer from low testosterone. I own a very small company so I cannot take advantage of having a lower-cost health insurance that other Americans who work in large corporations receive. I definitely live with some problems due to low testosterone and there is no way I am going to pay $300 a month especially when a generic form would cost less than 1/10 of Androgel. Your reply was disgusting and telling the previous poster to be happy he doesn't live in the dark ages is just simply stupid. These corporations hire thousands of salespeople and millions of dollars in advertising to push products to a point where I don't know anyone who isn't on several different medications. He is on disability because he worked and paid into the system, that is what it is there for. I find it very hard for anyone to justify the business practices of these pharmaceutical companies when all you see is huge profit margins and huge salaries to executives that have no problem screwing over their fellow Americans.

When we go down we'll all go down together!!!

Except for the greedy corporate executives. They'll all be having drinks on the beach in a foreign country!

I am not on a fixed income but at 300 a month that is way too high of a price, That is why I use Testim at 33.00 a month for a 90 day supply I can live with that. I do not see why all the arguing about all this if it happens that a cheaper form of the gel comes out we win if not there are alot of other options for people. Instead of fighting about this why not a few people look for other whys to get the cheaper brands that do the same thing or a way to get androgel at a cheaper price. For example most drug companies have a program if you dont have the money or on a fixed income they will give you the medication or at a really cheap price just by filling out the paperwork and sending it to them. I have done this for other medications when I was not having a great income and they gave me the medication just so I would not go without.

You mind controlled zombie. Nobody pays $300 for AndroGel. Who pays cash for it? I am embarrassed by some of the statements on here. This is why we lack credibility.

My son takes Testim due to a brain tumor (craniopharyngioma) that stopped the function of his pituitary gland. He produces no testosterone on his own. Not having a generic drug has really hit him hard with his health care plan for 2011. They no longer have a Rx deductible for brand name drugs, and he must meet a $2500 threshold + $1000 out of pocket to qualify for a co-pay. The cost of testim is over $250/month. And that's just one of 4 medicines he takes to maintain a quality of life and be productive. Of course, he probably could get assistance if quit his job and stopped taking responsibility for himself, but that's another subject. So why am I writing...does anyone really know if there is a testim generic on the way soon?

There's not...but I think Androgel will be generic in several years.

What you should do instead is ask your doc about getting a compounded Testosterone cream made at a compounding pharmacy. It usually costs about $30 or $40 a month and may be very helpful for your son.

Thanks for the tip on compounded testosterone. We see the Endocrinologist next week and will discuss with him. I know there's a compounding pharm in his town, so that might be the answer.

I really hope it helps. Our drug isn't for everyone but the testosterone should help him a lot.

Talk to your doctor. Unlike, Androgel, there are Testim samples available. If your doctor takes Testim samples, he/she may be able to help you out. There is also a Patient Assistance Program available for those who have no insurance/government coverage nor can they afford cash. Again, speak with your physician and see if you can't get Testim for free.

I checked with my doc, got a week's worth of samples, a $40 off coupon, which still makes it 60/month for me, and a 30 day for free voucher card. I have been using it for 10 days now, and I have noticed a big difference in my energy, drive, and overall condition. In addition, I have seen my belly starting to get smaller... Loving it so far! Can they make the scent a little less over powering???

Just my two cents...

Can they make the scent a little less over powering???

Just my two cents...

Things like leeches to bleed out the bad humors or drilling holes in people's heads to let out the evil spirits that cause headaches?

Boo! Hoo! You're on a fixed income from disability (meaning our tax dollars are taking care of you) and the GREEDY makers of Androgel are trying to recoup their R&D investment dollars and make a profit? Why don't you thank GOD that you live in a time period and a country that even makes these kinds of medications available? You are obviously so immersed in "entitlements" that you think it is your birthright to have medical miracles available to you for FREE.

If you have ANY type of insurance (which you must have if you are on disability) then Androgel is NOT $300. If you are on the highest dose and paying cash, then yes - otherwise no. And if you are so destitute as you claim, then get a SHOT! They're cheap and achieve similar results. And by the way, it's testosterone - you're not dying.

But no, typical stereotype that you are, you demand the Cadillac of the drug class and you want it FREE.

You do realize that we only have the medical advancements in this country that you take for granted by PEOPLE GOING TO WORK and making it happen, right? This country become great and advanced the standard of living by leaps and bounds because people worked hard and got to reap the rewards of their efforts. The Obama mentality is embedded so deep now that people like you throw tantrums and call the world "messed up" because their designer drugs should be GIVEN to them, just like the money they live on.

Why don't you write to your Congress person and tell them to stop subsidizing prescription drugs for the rest of the world and then you will see the price of your Androgel and your other drugs come down. Until then, stop whining and start assuming some responsibility for your life.
what a ass you must be hope you find your self flat on your ass an broke your no dam better then any one you can get busted up at any time ass but hell being the big man you are you could keep working no matter what you are just a anonymous ass hole

I am a rep for another company, and spoke to some of my providers about it. They have been very helpful. I suggest you ask your Dr to request a rep to bring by samples. But if they don't give you samples and coupons at your initial visit and script, you are probably out of luck...

Arms Re: Generic Androgel on the Way!!!! Testim Rules

my husband gets testim through our prescription provider. We had $30 co pay but I am a nurse and found a coupon which you can present at local pharmacy for $40 off copay.
Thus he pays nothing each month and hasnt for past year. Unfortunately my prescription plan sucks next year and we will have to pay 35% of the cost.
Coupon found at www.needymeds.com

go to the alphabetical list and click on the letter T ...scroll down until you find testim and when you fill out info it will allow you to print coupon. Make sure youhave coupon printer installed on you computer. The pharmacist will accept the couponand deduct the coupon amount. There are lots of different ed coupons there.
good luck

AndroGel is not generic, nor is it going generic at this time. Testim is very expensive, and is not covered at all. AndroGel is preferred where as Testim is not. Step therapy means you MUST fail on AndroGel before getting Testim. The reason Testim has 40.00 coupons is because it is much more expensive. AndroGel has roughly a 25.00 co-pay across all plans, WITH a 20.00 coupon makes it free each month for a year, or 5.00 per month for a year!
If you like smelling like a grease monkey, use Testim. If you want the GOLD STANDARD...use AndroGel.

Silica gel may also be used to keep the relative humidity (RH) inside a high frequency radio or satellite transmission system waveguide as low as possible. Excessive moisture buildup within a waveguide can cause arcing inside the waveguide itself, damaging the power amplifier feeding it. Also, the beads of water that form and condense inside the waveguide change the characteristic impedance and frequency, degrading the signal. It is common for a small compressed air system (similar to a small home aquarium pump) to be employed to circulate the air inside the waveguide over a jar of silica gel.

KISS YOUR BUTTS GOOD-BYE WHEN AXIRON AND FORTESTA HIT THE MARKET. WHEN MD'S TRY THESE NEW TRT'S IT WILL COME FROM THE STINKY GEL. IT'S TIME TO GIVE UP THE GHOST-AUXILIUM. YOUR REPS WILL THEN BE FREE TO RETURN TO WHAT THEY DID PRIOR TO WORKING FOR YOU-SLOPPING BURGERS AND RENTING CARS.
