Approval of Generic Formulation of Lamivudine and Zidovudine Tablets, 150 mg/300 mg

May 25, 2011

On May 25, 2011, FDA granted approval for a generic formulation fixed dose combination of lamivudine and zidovudine tablets, 150 mg/300 mg, a two nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitors, indicated in combination with other antiretroviral agents for the treatment of HIV-1 infection.

The tablets are manufactured by TEVA Pharmaceuticals USA.

FDA has determined that the generic formulation is bioequivalent and, therefore, therapeutically equivalent to the reference listed drug, Combivir Tablets, a product of VIIV Healthcare Company.

Approval of this generic formulation means that it may be marketed in the United States. A list of approved generic formulations of antiretroviral drugs used in the treatment of HIV infection can be found at www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ByAudience/ForPatientAdvocates/HIVandAIDSActivities/ ucm118944.htm.
