Lupin gets approval for new indigestion tablets in India

indigestionLupin Ltd announced today that it has received approval to launch Acotiamide 100 mg indigestion tablets in India from the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization.

Acotiamide is a drug to be introduced into the Indian Pharmaceutical Market which

Acotiamide enhances gastric accommodation and gastric emptying, the two factors which have been implicated in the cause of functional dyspepsia.

The current market for plain Gastrointestinal prokinetics drugs is estimated to be around ₹2,640 Cr growing at 14%.

Lupin is transnational pharmaceutical company producing and developing a wide range of branded & generic formulations, biotechnology products and APIs globally.
