Building on the strong brand history of Lodine and Lodine XL, the 500 mg dosage strength of Lodine XL will provide physicians with a new option for managing patients with arthritis symptoms," says Marc W.
Lodine XL (etodolac extended-release tablets) provides arthritis patients not only with affordable and effective pain relief, but also with an easy-to-follow and easy-to-remember treatment schedule that may help them better manage their condition.
As with all NSAIDs, the most common complaints associated with Lodine XL use relate to the gastrointestinal tract.
Lodine XL is available in 400 mg and 600 mg tablets, and may cost less than Lodine when cost is based on average wholesale price, which is a published list price and may not necessarily reflect actual price to pharmacists or consumers.
Today's FDA decision granting marketing clearance to Lodine XL follows closely on the heels of two other recent FDA decisions regarding Lodine (etodolac tablets and capsules): marketing clearance of a 500 mg dosage strength, as well as a new indication for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
