PITTSBURGH, Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan Inc. (Nasdaq: MYL) today announced that its subsidiary Mylan Pharmaceuticals has received final approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for Montelukast Sodium Tablets, 10 mg, the generic version of Merck's Singulair® Tablets. Mylan also received final FDA approval for its ANDA for Montelukast Sodium Chewable Tablets, 4 mg and 5 mg, the generic version of Merck's Singulair® Chewable Tablets. These products are indicated for the prophylaxis and chronic treatment of asthma in patients two years of age and older, for prevention of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction in patients 15 years of age and older, and for the relief of symptoms of seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis in patients two years of age and older.

Montelukast Sodium Tablets, 10 mg, had U.S. sales of approximately $3.7 billion for the 12 months ending June 30, 2012, and Montelukast Sodium Chewable Tablets, 4 mg and 5 mg, had U.S. sales of approximately $1.2 billion for the 12 months ending June 30, 2012, according to IMS Health.
