Alzheimer’s Drug Won’t Be Discontinued After All

Actavis announced that it will continue to distribute Namenda (memantine HCI) tablets due to a recent decision by a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

The Court ruled to uphold a December 15, 2014 preliminary injunction requiring Actavis to continue distribution of Namenda 5mg and 10mg tablets. Forest Laboratories, a wholly owned subsidiary of Actavis, had previously announced plans to discontinue sales of the drug in the fall of 2014.
