Perrigo gets FDA approval for generic OTC Zyrtec

ALLEGAN, Mich. Perrigo earlier this week received final approval from the Food and Drug Administration to manufacture and market over-the-counter store-brand equivalents to McNeil Consumer’s Children’s Zyrtec oral solution, indicated for indoor and outdoor allergy and hives relief.

According to Wolters Kluwer data, brand sales for the original prescription strength version of the product for the last 12 months ending December 2007 were approximately $80 million.

Perrigo expects to begin shipping the product immediately.
