Generic Cordran Lotion

Although the patents and exclusivity rights for Cordran Lotion (flurandrenolide lotion) have expired, no generic versions of this drug are currently available. It is unknown when a generic Cordran Lotion may become available. If there is insufficient interest in a generic version of this drug, it may not be profitable for a manufacturer to make a generic product.

Can I Buy Generic Cordran Lotion?

Cordran® Lotion (flurandrenolide lotion) is a prescription skin medication used to treat inflammation and itching due to a variety of different skin conditions. It is a topical steroid that is applied to the skin two or three times a day.
 
Brand-name Cordran Lotion is made by DPT Laboratories, Ltd., for Aqua Pharmaceuticals, LLC. At this time, Cordran Lotion is not available in generic form.
 

When Will Generic Cordran Lotion Be Available?

This is a difficult question to answer. There are no unexpired patents or exclusivity rights for Cordran Lotion. This means that a generic could become available at any time, as soon as a generic manufacturer decides to make it and to apply to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to do so.
 
It is unclear why no manufacturers have chosen to make generic Cordran Lotion. Perhaps there is not a large enough market for this particular steroid. There are many different steroid products on the market today, and some are more popular than others.
 

Is Flurandrenolide a Generic Version of Cordran Lotion?

No -- flurandrenolide is the active ingredient in Cordran Lotion (as well as in Cordran SP Cream and in Cordran Tape), but it is not a generic version of it. What can be confusing is that the active ingredient of a drug is often referred to as the "generic name." The generic name is different from a generic version of a medicine.
 
In order for there to be a generic version of a medicine, the original medicine must have gone off-patent, and another company besides the original manufacturer must make the product.
