Supernus secures settlements with generics manufacturers
Supernus Pharmaceuticals has settled with drug makers Actavis and Zydus, securing a significant delay in the release of their generic versions of Trokendi XR capsules for partial onset seizures and primary generalised tonic-clonic seizures.

Actavis, a subsidiary of Teva Pharmaceuticals, and Zydus sought approval to market generic versions of Trokendi XR, prompting patent infringement complaints from Supernus.

The settlements bind Actavis and Zydus to release dates for their generic versions in 2023, or earlier, under certain, undisclosed circumstances.

Supernus said in statement that it will continue its “vigorous enforcement of its patent rights” for the drug, which expire in 2027.
