Otrexup (methotrexate) injection for subcutaneous use only.
Otrexup was the first subcutaneous methotrexate autoinjector approved in the United States. Since it was approved in 2013, Otrexup™ has been prescribed more than 140,000 times to patients with active rheumatoid arthritis, children with active polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and adults with severe, resistant, disabling psoriasis.
In June 2016 we launched the generic equivalent to Imitrex® (sumatriptan succinate) injection, 4 mg and 6 mg single-dose, prefilled syringe autoinjectors, in the U.S. with our distribution partner Teva Pharmaceuticals. Sumatriptan injection is used to treat acute migraine with or without aura, and acute cluster headaches in adults.
Sumatriptan Injection USP represents Antares first ANDA approval of a complex generic and second product approved using the VIBEX® auto injector platform.
