Levothyroxine Capsules complements and expands our portfolio of medications for thyroid deficiency."

Total U.S. sales for the 12 months ended September 2020 of Levothyroxine Sodium Capsules USP were approximately $111 million, according to IQVIA, although actual generic market values are expected to be lower.
