Alembic gets USFDA nod for generic drug to treat overactive bladder

New Delhi: Alembic Pharmaceuticals on Friday said it has received approval from the US health regulator to market a generic drug used to treat overactive bladder in adults.

The company has received final approval from the US Food & Drug Administration (USFDA) for its abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) for Fesoterodine Fumarate extended-release tablets in strength of 4 mg and 8 mg, the drug firm said in a statement.
