AstraZeneca's patent on Seroquel expires on September 26, 2011.
Teva's generic respules is out December this year!
And TEVA wouldn't DREAM of launching an at risk seroquel before then would they!! Good thing our legal team showed them what it was like to mess with AZ when they tried that with respules!!!
Yes, but we now have Seroquel XR....and remind me, what are the benefits of this over IR?
The benefit is to AZ, not the patient, dimwit! The benefit is that AZ makes more money if you Rx patented, and generic benefits only the patient and the healthcare system (i.e., everyone other than AZ).
I was being facetious. Try selling it. Absolutely zero benefits over seroquel.
What about less sedation? I thought that was a benefit.
I hear the prime selling point of Seroquel is that is causes sedation, so how would less sedation be a selling point?
Less sedation? There had never been a head-to-head trial (probably out of AZ fear of seeing the results), but if you look at sedation it is higher in the XR trials. Probably due to the XR and longer duration of action.
Seroquel IR was very predictable but that does not seem to be the case with XR.
We can't have the reps telling doctors that XR causes less sedation -- they'd never write it for this off-label indication then!
Whatever happened to the brand guy that was spiking the trainer back in the day? Is either one still around? What happened to their marriages? Did they marry?
When does XR SEROQUEL patent expire? September 26, 2011 patent expiration is for regular SEROQUEL.
Not sure you should check the orange book.
when does the patent expire on Lipitor? That's going to create some problems for crestor
This antipsychotic did nothing for me. Most patients grow out of there bipolar or schizophrenia by the time they turn 30 years old anyway.
