NEW DELHI: India's pharma major Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd (RLL) has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its antibiotic Cefadroxil Powder for Oral Suspension USP, the company said.

The approval for oral suspension in 125 mg/5 ml, 250 mg/5 ml and 500 mg/5 ml strengths will see the antibiotic being marketed in the U.S. from June, the company said in a statement Thursday.

Patients who are allergic to either penicillin or cephalosporin antibiotics in any form would have to consult their doctor before taking Cefadroxil.

In 2002, the total sales of Cefadroxil totaled $37.7 million, while sales of the suspensions were $16.7 million, said Ranbaxy.
