CMP Pharma has announced the availability of Atorvaliq (atorvastatin calcium), a liquid suspension of Atorvastatin, to treat high cholesterol and specific heart disease or stroke risk factors.
Atorvaliq 20mg/5mL is the first-ever oral suspension to receive Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.
The ready-made oral liquid is indicated for patients aged ten years and above.
The medication need not be prepared specially and requires no refrigeration. Offered in a citrus orange flavour, it has a shelf life of two years.
Atorvaliq is claimed to address discrepancies that may be present in compounded or crushed tablet formulations that have not received approval.
CMP Pharma CEO Gerald Sakowski stated: “Atorvaliq is intended for a subset of the patient population that needs atorvastatin but has dysphagia (difficulty swallowing tablets).
