Hanlim and Daewon have gotten marketing approval for their generic version of Sevikar, sources said on October 1.

Sevikar contains olmesartan medoxomil and amlodipine besilate. Hanlim’s generic version contains S-amlodipine nicontinate and Daewon’s has amlodipine maleate.

Hanlim and Daewon can roll out their generic versions earlier than other competing companies. Daewon has already enjoyed the privilege of the first runner with Eswonamp, its generic version of Nexium.

The authorized generic version got approved in August. It can be rolled out before the end of the year, but the brand-name maker will consider the price reduction due to the first generic drug before rolling out the authorized generic one.

Several companies, including JW Choongwae, are trying to invalidate the patents on Sevikar. Sevikar racked up 54.2 billion won last year.
