Wockhardt/Morton Grove Pharmaceuticals announced the discontinuation of Lindane Lotion 1%. The Companies have decided to stop manufacturing this product as of June 2, 2016.

Lindane, a pediculicide, is indicated for the treatment of scabies in patients who have failed on, or are intolerant of, other therapies. It acts as an ectoparasiticide and ovicide against Sarcoptes scabiei. Lindane exerts its parasiticidal action by being directly absorbed into the parasites and their ova.
