When will there be a generic Tradjenta?

 

Question:
When will there be a generic Tradjenta?

Answer:

Tradjenta (Linagliptin) is used along with diet and exercise and sometimes with other medications to lower blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes. It works by increasing the amounts of certain natural substances that lower blood sugar when it is high.

 

Unfortunately, there is currently no generic version (i.e. therapeutic equivalent) of Tradjenta available in the United States. In the U.S., generic equivalents can only be approved and distributed once the patent granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for medication expires. The patent for Tradjenta does not expire until 2019.

 

However, even though a generic version is not available in U.S. pharmacies, there may be affordable options available.
