Important Info on Generic Solodyn

When Will the Other Strengths Be Available?

It is difficult to say for certain. The first patent for the other Solodyn strengths expires in February 2018. This is the earliest predictable date that a generic version could become available.
 
However, other circumstances could come up to extend or shorten the exclusivity period. This could include such things as lawsuits or other patents for specific Solodyn uses. Once this patent expires, there may be several companies that manufacture a generic Solodyn drug.
 

Is Minocycline a Generic Solodyn?

No, minocycline is the active ingredient in Solodyn, but is not a generic version of it. What can be confusing is that, oftentimes, the active ingredient of any drug is referred to as the "generic name."
 
The generic name is different from a generic version of a medicine. In order for there to be a generic version of a medicine, the original medicine must have gone off-patent and another company besides the original manufacturer must make the product.
