In a BSE filing today, Marksans Pharma said, “USFDA has granted approval for an abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) for loratadine liquid filled capsules 10 mg.”
Loratadine liquid-filled capsules are therapeutically equivalent to the reference listed drug Claritin Liqui-Gels Capsules 10 mg of Bayer Healthcare LLC.
