State AG Group Backs Generic Drug Law Change

Filed May 25th, 2012 Laurie

The National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) stands in support of the U.S. “Patient Safety and Generic Labeling Improvement Act” (S.2295) bill designed to give generic drugmakers the same ability to correct label warnings as brand-name manufacturers. Current federal laws only permit name-brand manufacturers to independently change label warnings.

“Consumers whose prescriptions happen to be filled with the brand-name version of a drug are protected by state law from inadequate warnings, but consumers whose pharmacists fill their prescriptions with the generic versions are now denied this protection,” the May 11NAAG letter signed by 41 state and territorial Attorneys General and sent to bill sponsors Sens. Patrick Leahy and Al Franken. “…Congress can readily cure this problem by amending federal law.”

The NAAG letter can be read in its entirety by logging onto the NAAG website.
