Nine Korean pharmaceutical companies are working on their generic versions of Cymbalta that will go off patent in August 2014.

The nine companies include Samjin, Kolmar, Daewoong, Ildong, Hwanin, Korea, Pacific, LG Life Sciences, and Shinpoong. They expect marketing approval of their generic versions before August 2014.

Cymbalta annual sales are about 10 billion won. Its sales rose 66% in 2012 as the antidepressant market expanded.

A pharmaceutical marketer said, “More companies will jump on the bandwagon later as the patent expires next year.”
