Drug firm Lupin said it has launched generic Levothyroxine Sodium tablets in the U.S market.

The company has launched Levothyroxine Sodium tablets USP after receiving approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) earlier, Lupin said in a BSE filing.

The company's product is the generic version of AbbVie Inc's Synthroid tablets, it added.

The tablets are indicated as replacement or supplemental therapy for hypothyroidism and as an adjunct to surgery and radioiodine therapy in the management of thyrotropin-dependent well-differentiated thyroid cancer, Lupin said.
