Asendin was first manufactured under the brand name Asendin. This brand of Asendin was manufactured by Lederle Laboratories (a division of Wyeth Pharmaceuticals) but was discontinued in 2001. It is fairly common for brand-name medications to be discontinued (due to low sales) once the generic version has been available for a while. Generic Asendin is still available.
Generic Asendin tablets are available in the following strengths:
Amoxapine 25 mg tablets
Amoxapine 50 mg tablets
Amoxapine 100 mg tablets
Amoxapine 150 mg tablets.
At one point, several manufacturers were making generic Asendin. However, only one company (Watson Pharmaceuticals) currently makes generic Asendin.
