Perrigo is expanding its offering in the US with a store-brand equivalent to Imodium Multi-Symptom Relief.
The company said it had received final approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the tablets containing 2mg loperamide and 125mg simethicone.
Quoting data from IRI, Perrigo said retail sales of Johnson & Johnson 's Imodium Multi-Symptom Relief over the past 12 months had been around USD62 million.
The product is indicated for relieving symptoms of diarrhoea as well as bloating, cramps, pressure and gas.
Jeff Needham – Perrigo's executive vice president and president, Consumer Healthcare Americas – said the final approval and upcoming launch was an "important accomplishment" for the company's store-brand OTC business.
