M2 PHARMA-September 4, 2014-US subsidiary of Lundbeck launches Northera (droxidopa) capsules in US


The United States subsidiary of Lundbeck, a Danish global pharmaceutical company, has introduced Northera (droxidopa) capsules in the USA, it was reported yesterday.

The product is to be used for the treatment of neurogenic orthostatic hypotension, for which it has received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration. It is indicated to treat orthostatic dizziness, lightheadedness in adult patients with symptomatic neurogenic orthostatic hypotension caused by primary autonomic failure, dopamine beta-hydroxylase deficiency, and non-diabetic autonomic neuropathy.

Lundbeck US president, Staffan Schuberg, stated that for people living with symptomatic neurogenic orthostatic hypotension, the availability of Northera is likely to offer a new treatment option to discuss with their healthcare provider.
