When Will the Other Forms Be Available?
It is difficult to predict when exactly the other forms of Zegerid (including the prescription powder for oral suspension and the Zegerid OTC capsules) may become available. A patent listed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for all Zegerid products is set to expire in July 2016, but it is unclear if this patent provides any real protection against generic competition.
