Drugs Treat Arthritis And ADHD

Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced today that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two of Watson's abbreviated new drug applications: Oxaprozin Tablets, 600 mg and Methylphenidate Hydrochloride Extended Releases Tablets USP, 20 mg.

Oxaprozin Tablets are the generic equivalent to G. D. Searle and Co.'s Daypro(R) Tablets, 600 mg, which are indicated for the acute and long-term use in the management of the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Watson plans to manufacture this product at its Corona, California facility.

Methylphenidate Hydrochloride Extended Release Tablets are the generic equivalent to Novartis Pharmaceuticals' Ritalin-SR(R) Tablets, 20 mg, which are indicated as an integral part of a total treatment program for stabilizing effects in children with a behavioral syndrome characterized by developmentally inappropriate symptoms, such as moderate-to-severe distractibility, short attention span, hyperactivity, emotional lability, and impulsivity. Watson plans to manufacture this product at its Carmel, New York facility.
