Generic Drug Approvals
FDA regularly updates its lists of first generic drug approvals and competitive generic therapy approvals. To view all generic drug approvals and tentative approvals, use the “Drug Approval Reports by Month” feature on Drugs@FDA and select “Original Abbreviated New Drug Approvals (ANDAs) by Month” for generic drug approvals or “Tentative Approvals by Month” for tentative approvals. This database is updated daily.
