Mylan Launches Generic Amidate Injection

Mylan announced the launch of Etomidate Injection 2mg/mL, the generic version of Hospira's Amidate Injection.

Etomidate Injection is an intravenous hypnotic agent indicated for the induction of general anesthesia and the supplementation of subpotent anesthetic agents (eg, nitrous oxide in oxygen) during maintenance of anesthesia for short operative procedures (eg, dilation and curettage, cervical conization). Intravenous injection of etomidate produces hypnosis characterized by a rapid onset of action, usually within one minute.
