FDA rejects Teva's request to block Watson's generic Seasonique

PARSIPPANY, N.J. — A federal court has rejected Teva Pharmaceutical Industries’ efforts to prevent Watson from launching a generic version of one of its drugs, Watson said Friday.

The U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada denied Duramed Pharmaceuticals’ request for an injunction to keep Watson’s generic version of the contraceptive Seasonique (levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol 0.15 mg/0.03 mg) and ethinyl estradiol 0.01 mg from being launched.

Seasonique is made by Teva Women’s Health, the successor of Duramed.
