Generic Miacalcin Injection

While no patents are preventing generic Miacalcin injection from being manufactured, no companies have chosen to make a generic version of the medication. High costs and a small market for the drug are possible reasons why drug companies are not producing generic Miacalcin injection products at this time.

Generic Miacalcin Injection: An Overview

Miacalcin® injection (calcitonin salmon injection) is a medication available by prescription only that is used to treat several conditions related to calcium and the bones. It is a synthetic version of calcitonin, a hormone that helps regulate bone formation and breakdown.

When Will Generic Miacalcin Injection Be Available?

It is not known when generic Miacalcin injection might become available. No unexpired patents for the medication exist. However, there may be several reasons why no manufacturers have chosen to make a generic version of the drug. It may be too difficult or too expensive to develop. Also, there may not be a large enough market for generic Miacalcin injection to be profitable, since many people use Miacalcin nasal spray instead.
